How Kids Can Take Ashitaba

Though ashitaba might be hard to eat because of its bitter taste, people - both kids and adults - should learn to tolerate it to receive its full benefits. If your kid cannot really take the strong taste of the leaves, you can consider purchasing not the raw plant or the leaves but the processed forms of ashitaba such as the following:

1. Ashitaba Tea

Most kids do not favor vegetables at any time of the day, no matter how forceful you are at feeding them. The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan suggests that ashitaba contains lactic acid to balance the intestines and promote the activities of the stomach. So you can encourage your kid to drink a glass of ashitaba tea at least daily to compensate their lack of vegetable content in the body and to help them clean waste. Ashitaba tea is easy to make and you can read more about the procedures here.

2. Ashitaba Powder



You can serve ashitaba together with milk, yogurt, and other drinks to hide its likely horrible taste for children's taste buds. Ashitaba products now are available in the form of powder that you can mix with a lot of beverages and food. 100 grams of Ashitaba powder contains the beta-carotene, also contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, biotin, folic acid, A, C, E, and K, and the minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, sulphur, iron and silicon.

3. Ashitaba Supplement

You don't have to prepare ashitaba as food or mix it with beverage. Instead, you can have ashitaba supplements and make it easier for children to swallow. Ashitaba supplements are convenient to carry anywhere. These supplements also contain the chalcone for extra cleansing.

Chalcones are yellow sap found inside the stem of ashitaba contaning a very rare treasure trove of nutrients. They not only promote the circulation of the body but this juice of Angelica keiskei has more than twenty potents and rare flavonoids.



Recent studies show that these chalcones, especially the 4-hydroxyderricin and xanthoangelol so abundant in Ashitaba, promise to combat some of the worst effects of visceral fat. Ashitaba supplements sold below  100% additive-free; so you can have your kids take ashitaba without the grassy smell and less bitterness.

  2. It is great that this healthy herb is safe for kids to enjoy as well but my picky son won't probably take even a sip of this :/ It would be nice to get a plant like this to cultivate at home :)

    1. Together with other plants, ashitaba can be cultivated at your home garden but you must make sure that the climate is set coolly. When preparing snacks for kids, sometimes the simpler the better. You can have them snack on healthy bites such as ashitaba whenever they want.
