Research On Chalcone

The Ashitaba stem contains the thick, sticky-yellow juice, which is not found in other celery plants. This yellow pigment element in Ashitaba is neither flower pigment nor carotene, but rather two kinds of CHALCONE conductors, named "Xanthoangelol" and "4-Hydroxyderricin." While the Ashitaba produced on Hachi Jo Island is rich in these two conductors, almost little or no such substances are found in other Ashitaba plants produced outside of the island.


The main functions of the CHALCONE are: purifies blood, strengthens immune system, monitors cholesterol level, regulates blood pressure, suppresses acid secretion, prevents thrombus, suppresses cytophy, antibacterial, prevents cancer, and promotes metabolism.
