Ashitaba Powder is grown and air-dried by two of the premier organic and biodynamic growers in Northern California.
Ashitaba is perhaps one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables on the planet, containing more Vitamin B6 and B12 than your typical green vegetable. Studies indicate that it boosts the immune system, is diuretic, enhances stomach and intestine functions, and has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It also contains rich stores of potassium and manganese, which help ease diabetes, and it stimulates nerve growth factor (NGF), which is a protein that maintains the health connection between neurons and the brain.
It even has the power to rejuvenate your body’s cell properties, and many people claim they look younger after regular consumption of ashitaba.
In addition, the chalcones, a yellow pigment found in the ashitaba stem, is being intensively studied for its cell-regulating properties. Dr Cowan's Garden take special care to harvest the stems along with the leaves to ensure the best nutrient-phytochemical profile.
Ashitaba has a clean, herbaceous, celery-like taste with warm, spicy notes. To use, put a teaspoon or so in a tea bag and steep in hot water for a soothing tea. Sprinkle on salads, eggs, rice and quinoa, buttered popcorn, steamed or roasted vegetables, fish, or chicken. Add to smoothies, soups, stews, pasta, spaghetti sauce – really, anything you enjoy eating!
