Ashitaba Products for the Brain
This freshly harvested, premium grade Ashitaba has been powdered for easy use in smoothies and blender drinks. Ashitaba, a superfood from Okinawa, has high activity in the enhancement of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) production in the brain. Nerve Growth Factor is a vital biological substance that is essential in the development and survival of certain neurons in both the central and peripheral nervous systems of humans and other mammals. Active constituents of Ashitaba have been shown to be capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier. Ashitaba contains chalcones, a xanthohumol compound, that is likely the active constituents in nerve growth factor support.
