Benefits of Ashitaba

I bought this Ashitaba for fifty pesos some 5 months ago in Shangri-La Mall Fair. It was just a small plant. I actually didn't know what to do with it until it started growing so much leaves. 

Google is always the key, according to the internet, "ts 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.

For best results, plant ashitaba in a deep, fertile soil in full sun or dappled shade. Water the plant regularly to keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. You can improve moisture retention in the soil by mixing in 2 to 3 inches of leaf mold, compost or fine pine bark to the soil before planting.
