Ashitaba is endemic to Hachijō, an island in the Izu archipelago, a moist subtropical region located to the south of Japan. In the days of the Edo period, natives of the Hachijō Island were reportedly always in the pink of health. They attributed their longevity to Ashitaba, which became known as the ‘Longevity Herb’. Today, this unique plant is regarded as a treasure and affectionately referred to as ‘King of Vegetables’ in Hachijō Island. Ashitaba is a rich source of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and its sap – chalcone – possesses valuable carcinostatic, antithrombotic and ulcer preventive abilities. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
