WHAT IS ASHITABA (Japanese Parsley)
(ASHITABA – “King of Vegetables” and “The Leaf of Tomorrow”)
Japanese ASHITABA from Hachi Jo Island survives on volcanic rocks and soil with very high salinity environment. Its Botanical name is Angelica Keiskei Koidzumi. It is reputed by its name of tomorrow's leaf or weed. It was named for its ability to reproduce green stems and leaf almost on a daily basis. Japanese Parsley is a herbaceous plant that grows year round. This greenish yellow vegetable has been mentioned in many ancient Japanese Medical Writings. It has been consumed as a vegetable and medicine for many 100’s of years by the local island herbalists.
It is said the name ASHITABA literally means “tomorrow’s leaf”, came from its strength of making new leaves tomorrow, if picked up today, indicating the living vitality and strength of ASHITABA. It has remarkable propagation, especially from spring to summer, and has full of energy.
ASHITABA is a perennial plant in the family of Japanese parsley with roots like dong quai. It grows naturally in the Pacific side of Japan, but mostly found in the IZU Group of Islands. The place of Origin is thought to be Hachi Jo Island and can also be found on the surrounding Islands. The climate there seems suitable for the growth of ASHITABA. Cool in summer, warm (not too cold) during the winter and lots of rain through out the year. ASHITABA is a rare plant and survives on such limited areas around the world.
ASHITABA has been used since the EDO period (17th–19th Century), as health food and traditional medicine on those Islands. It is said people on these Islands, comparing to those of Edo Town are far more healthy and youthful looking.
It was believed to be effective to cure the smallpox, widely spread in Japan at that period of time. Studies showed that people from the Main Island of Japan brought ASHITABA from the Island and planted in their garden for use as medicine.
Some of the Beliefs of the people of HACHI JO Island
- You will not get smallpox if you take ASHITABA.
- ASHITABA stimulates more milk in mothers but also animals.
- ASHITABA can heal the skin suppuration.
- ASHITABA can relief pain/soothes itchiness when bitten by some insects.
- ASHITABA can make the wounds/suppuration better even when bitten by some poisonous ants.
- ASHITABA can work as stomach medicine.
- It is good to spread ASHITABA over foot fingers when you have water eczema.
- It is good to treat skin allergy (to be mixed in the bath water).
The Characteristic Components of ASHITABA
When you cut the stalk or the root of ASHITABA, sticky yellow liquid can be seen. This is not found in other plants of the same Japanese Parsley specie. This yellow coloured component of ASHITABA is not Antocianin or Carotene, but 2 types of CHALCONE conductors known as XANTHOANGELOL and 4-HYDROXYDERRICIN. Both kinds of CHALCONES are abundantly found in ASHITABA, but not in other plants. This is the main unique characteristic of ASHITABA.
Like many other common parsley specie, ASHITABA contains abundant COUMARIN. This is also an important component to explain the function of ASHITABA. What are the other components of ASHITABA, then?
Rich Nutrition Contained in ASHITABA
Results of the analysis conducted by Japan Centre for Food Analysis, confirmed that ASHITABA contains a lots of PLANT DERIVED MINERAL and Essential VITAMINS, Other Proteins and Amino Acid. It is remarkable that ASHITABA contains much more Potassium that many other vegetables.
The Importance of Potassium to our body, as mentioned earlier, is very related to diuretic function. Many people’s testimonials confirmed that the quantity of urine if better because they consumed ASHITABA.
CELL-GEN “Perpetual” Health Food
Researched Pioneered by Dr. NISHIMUTA TADASHI (Kurume University, Faculty of Medicine), Dr. Hideo Minato (Tokyo University), Dr Kimie Baba (Osaka University of Pharmacology). Tested and Certified by Japan Food Research Analysis Centre, Japan
Nutrition Comparison with Other Vegetables
30 years Studies conducted by Dr. Kimie Baba showed that CELL-GEN Health Food has active ingredients from ASHITABA Plant taken from Hachi Jo Island. This specie has high amount of Beta-Carotenoid as compared to most other green and yellow vegetables! Beta-carotene is a very powerful anti-oxidation, aging inhibition due to its ability to control the action of active acid substances; it can also prevent cancer and heart disease. Beta-carotene can also strengthen the body's immune system.
RESEARCH ON EFFECTS OF ASHITABA
By Dr. Kevin Lance [ones, L.Ac., O.M.D.]
Little is known about the world of Herbal Medicine. Of all the plant species in the world, only five percent (5%) have been catalogued. Of that five percent that have been catalogued, a full one quarter (1/4) or twenty – five percent (25%) have medicinal qualities. There is the example of Taxol, an anti-uterine cancer drug that is derived from the bark of the Yu tree.

Q.37 What is Ashitaba?
A.37 Ashitaba is a specie of the celery family and Japanese Dong Quai family. The scientific name is known as Angelica Keiskei Koidzmi. There are numerous medicinal herbs of the same genus to which Ashitaba belongs, such as Radix Angelicae Sinasis, Radix Angelicae Pubescentis, Rhizoma Liguistici Chuanxiong, etc. Ashitaba can be found on the Edo Islands, especially Hachi Jo Island for the best quality.

Q.38 Why is Ashitaba known as the “Longevity Herb” and hachi Jo Island known as the “Longevity Island”?
A.38 Since ancient times, the residents of Hachi Jo Island were known for their longevity. They are rarely infected with modern diseases such as cancer, irregular blood pressure, strokes, cardia infarction, alzheimer disease, etc. Tracing the reasons for their longevity, they found the residents consumed raw Ashitaba as their daily vegetable to preserve their health. Records of Hachi Jo Island show that Ashitaba was the "Longevity Herb" that the First Emperor of China of the Chin Dynasty was searching for.
Q.39 What makes Ashitaba grown on Hachi Jo Island different?
A.39 The special soil of this volcanic island along with the black tide of the Pacific Ocean enrich the Ashitaba grown on Hachi Jo Island. Ashitaba grown in Korea, Taiwan and other areas have been tested to blossom pre-maturely (8~16 months), compared with Ashitaba grown on Hachi Jo Island which blossom around 4 years. The differences are the loss of nutrients and most importantly, the absence of the "Chalcon" element. This condition is similar to "Ginseng", which is best grown in Korea. Only Ashitaba grown on Hachi Jo Island is approved by medical study and research in Japan.

It helps purify the blood, strengthens immune system, monitors cholesterol level, regulates blood pressure, suppresses cytophy, antibacterial, prevents cancer, and promotes metabolism.
