Notes from DrKF:
This form of buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum), native to the Himalayas, takes the term “superfood” to a new level—think of it as an epi-nutrient multivitamin. It’s sometimes referred to as a pseudo-cereal, because it’s used similarly, but it’s not a grain, nor is it closely related to wheat. It contains high levels of multiple flavonoid DNA methylation adaptogens, including quercetin, luteolin, rutin, hesperidin, diosimin, and another compound called 2-HOBA, which lowers blood pressure and rejuvenates immune function (all in therapeutic doses). Tartary buckwheat also contains HMB and is low-glycemic, fiber-rich, gluten-free (technically it’s the seed of a fruit), and high in amino acids and healthy fats. Tartary buckwheat is now being grown (organically and regeneratively) in the United States, and you can take it either in capsule form or buy it as a flour to cook with.
Dosage: 2 caps twice per day if using HTB Rejuvenate.
