Why Our New Ashitaba Tea Blends Hold a Special Place in My Heart
“One of the primary impulses I had for the founding of Dr. Cowan’s Garden was to make U.S. biodynamically-grown Ashitaba available to my patients and friends. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the many benefits of Ashitaba is in a delicious cup of warm and nourishing tea. I am so pleased to offer you this exclusive line of Ashitaba teas, made with specially selected organic ingredients to support your health and well-being. "
Yours in Health,
What Makes Our Ashitaba Teas So Special?
We are excited to offer this exclusive line of Ashitaba teas, made with the only domestic, biodynamically grown Ashitaba in the U.S.
Ashitaba is arguably the most nutritionally dense superfood plant on earth, with twice the nutrient content of other green vegetables, plus the powerful phytochemical called chalcones, one of only several sources of natural ketones that have been shown to support metabolic function, detoxification, anti-inflammation, longevity and reversal of excessive cell growth.
Each Ashitaba tea blend contains a delicious combination of organic plants, spices and herbs to support your health and well-being.
Ashitaba, otherwise known as “tomorrow leaf,” is the only known edible plant in the Angelica family. Plants in this family were considered gifts to the human being during the Middle Ages, hence, its name.
The most famous Angelica is the well-known medicinal plant Angelica Archangelica, or “gift from the angels and archangels,” which was reportedly the only effective agent against the plague. Ashitaba is a close
relative of archangelica, having evolved in its native lands of Japan, Indonesia and the Phillipines.
One of the most intriguing aspects of ashitaba is its high nutrient density, as depicted in the chart. As you can see, the nutrient profile of ashitaba
easily dwarfs nutritional powerhouses such as kale and asparagus.
