Interesting facts on the ashitaba plant

These are things that should fascinate you, particularly if you characterize yourself as being one of the following, or all.

Because we are talking plants you love them. And if you love plants, you probably enjoy your weekend gardening. But the ashitaba plant has numerous benefits for those who aren’t particularly fond of gardening as well. This is because the plant produces ashitaba tea which originated from Japan. In fact, the tea production process from this plant goes back thousands of years.

It seems to correspond well with Japan’s famous ancient medicinal practices because of the numerous health benefits that the plant’s raw tea leaves or powdered alternatives give off to all those consumers that use it. That being said, this plant should excite those who consider themselves to be excellent practitioners of good, healthy habits. They eat and drink well, healthily of course, and they exercise regularly.

Let’s not forget that. And if they are not exercising regularly, they are at least physically active throughout most of their days. Part of being physically active is very much part of living the organic life. And if you are living the organic life, you have more than likely dabbled in organic gardening. If not that, you are today full-fledged practitioners or just starting out. Apart from the ashitaba plant there is also the matcha.

Ashitaba is loosely translated into ‘tomorrow’s leaf’. This is what is what the future holds for you if you have just started to transform your life towards one that is filled with health, vitality and wellness. The plant’s tealeaves carry many health benefits, from increasing energy and metabolic levels to preventing diabetes. Tomorrow’s leaf is also known as the angelica plant. What a nice name. To recognize the organically and sustainably and yet commercially packaged product, look out for a green tea powder.

Ashitaba tea leaves have the ability to regenerate within twenty four hours after the tree is harvested. This is why the tea leaf is also known affectionately as the longevity herb. Funny thing that (although good health is no laughing matter), ashitaba tea promotes healthy longevity among all those who consume it, piping hot with a teaspoon of organic honey, with or without fat free dairy milk or almond or coconut milk, fat free too, of course, and also organic, chilled or ice cold, and even stirred into a favorite smoothie drink.

The human body’s cells are rejuvenated after a good cuppa. So too, its blood cells and digestive system. Ashitaba tea is also a good skin cleanser and toner, and it is especially good as a healthy antidote towards lifting doom and gloom, reducing stress and anxiety levels and even helping those who have the disease to cope with chronic depression. The Ashitaba plant is rich in vitamin B. It has high levels of B6 which is beneficial for regulating human sleep patterns.
