What is Ashitaba plant good for?
Also to know is, is Ashitaba safe?
Based on the genotoxicity and rat studies reported here, ashitaba chalcone powder is not genotoxic and is of general low toxicity with jejunal lymphangiectasia present in high dose (1000 mg/kg) males and females and a dose-related male rat-specific alpha 2-urinary globulin nephropathy in males.
One may also ask, can Ashitaba cure cancer? Ashitaba's antioxidant properties have been shown to exhibit anti-cancer effects. They have the remarkable ability to suppress cell growth abnormalities. One study showed that two types of cancer cells experienced toxic effects when exposed to xanthoangelol. Xanthoangelol is a chalcone found in the stem of ashitaba.
Also know, what does Ashitaba taste like?
Don Mahoney picks a leaf from an ashitaba plant, much like those ancient Japanese foragers might have done. The taste is bitter at first, then warm and fresh. Ashitaba looks a bit like its cousin, angelica, with ribbed stems and deep green dissected leaves and a fat, white, tapering root.
What Ashitaba can cure?
Its root, leaf, and stem are used to make medicine. Ashitaba is used for “heartburn” (gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD), stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gout, constipation, and hay fever. It is also used for cancer, smallpox, fluid retention, blood clots, and food poisoning.
