Abstract

This study was carried out in order to analyse the amino acid constituents of Gynostemma pentaphyllum Makino (G. P. M. ) produced in Korea and Japan. Total and free amino acids of those were analysed by HPLC. Total amino acid contents of G. P. M. produced in Korea were similar to that of produced in Japan. The Histidine content of G. P. M. produced in Korea was more rich than that of produced in Japan. The content of glutamic acid was the most rich among in kinds of amino acids in both hind of G. P. M. G. P. M. in Korea contained the least methionine and G. P. M. from Japan contained the least cystine.
