Ashitaba is a member of the angelica family ~ renown for its lineage as a potent anti-aging and beauty food in Japanese Folk and Eastern Medicine. It is an incredibly resilient plant native to the coastline of Japan, and has been affectionately named “Tomorrow’s Leaf” because it will replenish its leaves with all new growth within 24 hours of harvest. We appreciate this leafy plant today because it provides a whole-food source of B vitamins, a rare find in terrestrial plants! It is also being actively studied for a compound it contains called “chalcones” which stimulate Nerve Growth Hormone, a key leader in the science of longevity!
Ashitaba is considered a prime “Shen” Tonic ~ Shen is the equivalent of Spiritual Well-being or the Heart ~ Mind in Chinese Tradition and we feel the effects in our hearts immediately.
