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.

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".

as those in soy, and two times more potent than those found in green
Due to Ashitaba's blood purifying and detoxifying properties,
cells stay healthy and thus metabolism, immune system, and all other

cellular level and degenerative diseases are prevented.
