An intriguing herb

Calamus is relaxing and quiet calming, but there is some concern about long-term, daily use. Use it with caution. Some use it to greatly curtail or quit smoking, and it does seem to work.

With calamus, stopping smoking certainly outweighs the risks that may be associated with this herb. However, it is not at all recommended for those with liver problems.

Questions & Answers for Calamus Root

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).
Question by: FS on May 05, 2014
In terms of Triploid Form, our calamus root is 'Acorus Calamus var. Calamus'.
