Questions & Answer for Calamus Root
On May 5, 2014 FS asked:
- Q: Do you know what Cytotype the Calamus Root species you carry from India & Croatia are? The reason I ask is because the varying cytotypes have varying levels of beta-asarone (β-asarone) which has been found to be toxic and carcinogenic with chronic intake of large doese. The three forms are Tetraploid Form 'Acorus Calamus var. Angustatus' (~70% β-asarone), Triploid Form 'Acorus Calamus var. Calamus' (9-13% β-asarone), and Diploid Form 'Acorus Calamus var. Americanus' (free of β-asarone).
- A: In terms of Triploid Form, our calamus root is 'Acorus Calamus var. Calamus'. - starwest staff
