Ashitaba from Japan, a medicinal plant for disease prevention, is grown and processed in Hachi Jo Island, Japan.
Ashitaba is an Asian green vegetable rich in antioxidant - Chalcone. Recent studies in Japan and the U.S. have shown that the Chalcone in Ashitaba helps guard against common diseases.
The academic research group lead by Dr. Kimie Baba, MD, who is an authority on Ashitaba have announced several research reports which includes the publication in the 1990 Pharmacology Convention. The findings of the research indicates that Hachi Jo Island Ashitaba does not only contain rich and balanced vitamins minerals, food fiber and amino acids, it also contains a newly found element- named "CHALCONE".
Donald Buhler and his colleagues at Oregon State University found that minute amounts of Chalcone in hops were six times as potent as those antioxidants found in citrus fruit, almost four times as potent as those in soy, and two times more potent than those found in green tea.
Due to Ashitaba's blood purifying and detoxifying properties, cells stay healthy and thus metabolism, immune system, and all other body functions, especially liver and kidneys, can maintain proper balance, Hayano said. As a result, the aging process is retarded on a cellular level and degenerative diseases are prevented.

As a diuretic, it has no side effects such as western medicines frequently have. Ashitaba is very useful in treating menstrual cramps and pains.
