Geocache Description:


[LV]  Mellužu dižtūja ir viena no lielākajām Rietumu tūjām Latvijā. 2020. gadā tūjas apkārtmērs bija 2,53m. Aptuvenais tūjas garums ir 21m. Tūjas ir mūžzaļu skujkoku ģints, kas pieder pie ciprešu dzimtas. Tūju ģintī izšķir piecas sugas no, kurām divas atrodamas Ziemeļamerikā un trīs Tuvajos Austrumos. Tūjas mēdz saukt arī par dzīvības kokiem (arbor vitae).  

Vēsturiski tūjas ir tikušas izmantotas tautas medicīnā, piemēram, odu atbaidīšanā vai jostas rozes ārstēšanā. Kanādas pirmiedzīvotāji kādreiz lietoja Thuja occidentalis adatas, lai pagatavotu tēju ar augstu C vitamīna saturu, ko izmantoja cingas ārstēšanai vai profilaksei pret cingu. Tūjas sastāvā ir aktīva viela — tujonu (GASS receptora antagonistu).

[ENG]  The Melluzi nobel thuja is one of the largest Western thuja in Latvia. In 2020 thuja had a circumference of 2.53m. The approximate length of thuja is 21m. Thuja is a genus of evergreen conifers belonging to the cypress family. There are five species in the Thuya genus, two of which are found in North America and three in the Middle East. Thuja are also called arbor vitae.
Thuja have historically been used in folk medicine, for example to repel mosquitoes or to treat shingles. Native Americans once used Thuja occidentalis needles to make high-vitamin C tea, which was used to treat or prevent zing. The thyme contains the active substance thione (a GASS receptor antagonist).
