What is              ?

Ashitaba is a lush green plant that has its origins on the island of island of Hachijo  Japan where the warm tropical currents pass by on their way North to meet the cold Arctic waters of the Pacific. Its name means "tomorrow' leaf". aptly termed due to its ability to reproduce its green stem and leaf almost on a daily basis.

Ashitaba's scientific name, Angelica Keiskei Koidzme, comes from the Latin name for "angel", most likely due to its "heavenly", well known health benefits that have given it such notoriety. The inhabitants of Hachijo Island are well known for their longevity, having some of the longest life spans on earth (i.e. many commonly live well into their 90's in god health). Ashitaba has been an integral part of their diet for hundreds of years.

When all aspects of their life style were analyzed, the researchers found that the consumption of Ashitaba was a heavy contribution to their healthy, extended lives. Even the local residents of the island refer to Ashitaba as the "longevity herb". As more research has been conducted on this special strain of angelica, Ashitaba has been attracting more and more attention from the scientific community.

The oldest written record of the benefits of Ashitaba appear to be more than 2,000 years old. Of the many thousands of known plants, Ashitaba belongs to the elite 1% category called "medicinal plant".

From the Ming Dynasty to the Shogun warriors, the Ashitaba plant traveled from China to Japan and was a well guarded secret of strength and longevity for hundreds of years among the classes of society.

Ashitaba is a true functional Super Food, containing a vast spectrum of beneficial properties and a unique array of phytonutrients, including 11 vitamins, 13 minerals, chlorophyII, enzymes, carotene, germanium, saponins, proteins, plant fiber, glycosides, coumarins, and a potent, rare class of flavonoids called CHALCONE.

 

What makes Ashitaba grown on Hachi Jo Island different?

As scientists began to analyze the reason for the unusual longevity of the Hachijo Island residents, they discovered that Ashitaba is the only plant known to contain Chalcone, a class of potent flavonoid compounds.

Ashitaba contains a thick, sticky yellow juice, which is not found in other celery plants. This yellowish element in Ashitaba is neither a flower pigment nor a carotene, but rather two kinds of "CHALCONE" conductors, named "Xanthoangelol" and "4-Hydroxyderricin".
