Native Americans have traditionally used plants like bindweed to support the health of the skin, which was especially important under the harsher living conditions of times past.* Although we do not know of modern research supporting this use of field bindweed, we recognize that field bindweed’s traditional value may have involved its component proteoglycans.*
Recent research suggests that PGM has potent immune-stimulating properties.* In a recent in vitro study, lymphocyte proliferation and phagocyte activity increased with PGM administration.* Through a range of concentration medium of 0 to 100 mcg/ml of PGM, lymphocyte proliferation and activity increased 46 to 85%, respectively.* Another study used the chicken egg chorioallantoic membrane assay to study PGM regarding vascularization.
