A small plant with BIG potential!
Paracress (Acmella oleracea)
Introducing Paracress, scientifically known as Acmella oleracea, also known as Spilanthes acmella, the toothache plant, buzz button, electric daisy and sechuan button. It is a flowering herb that belongs to the Asteraceae family (daisy family). It has been recognized by science and indigenous cultures as "an important medicinal plant with an increasingly high demand worldwide that offers immense utilization in medicine, health care, cosmetics, and as health supplements." Source: PubMed
From its traditional uses in health care and food, extensive phytochemical studies have been reported. Considering data from the literature, it could be demonstrated that S. acmella possesses diverse bioactive properties and immense utilization in medicine, health care, cosmetics and as health supplements. As a health food, it is enriched with high therapeutic value with high potential for further development.
It is considered endangered due to a low germination rate and lack of widespread availability & horticultural knowledge. Our mission is to change that.
