Jiru: The Japanese Secret to Healthy Weight and Long Life
"Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables daily can help reduce the risk of many leading causes of illness and death, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity." - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Aojiru, Japanese for green juice, is a powder supplement made of hand cut, organic young barley leaves combined with other superfoods like matcha and kumazasa powder which work together to infuse our bodies with vitamins and minerals that may be missing or deficient in our modern diets. Helped by the daily use of aojiru, many Japanese have been able to live beyond a century, improve their active years over 80, and maintain trim, fit bodies throughout their lifetimes.

For centuries, the Japanese have prioritized health, beauty, and ritual, developing a modern society that continues to experience miraculous longevity and low rates of obesity beyond those experienced in any other developed country. A key part of maintaining their excellent health has been the incorporation of Aojiru into their daily habits.
According to a 2017 report from the CDC, only 1 in 10 American adults get the recommended amount of vegetables daily. Without these essential vegetables, Americans are subject to more diseases, ill health, and obesity. As demonstrated by the data, Americans have the highest rate of obesity among developed countries at 38.2%, while Japan has the lowest at 3.7%. High vegetable intake is associated with lower obesity rates since vegetable provide nutrient-dense food sources with high fiber content which improves the digestion of food and elimination of waste. The Japanese rely on Aojiru to help them meet their daily recommended intake for vegetables and fiber. Americans can also benefit from this energizing supplement.
Powdered Aojiru allows for easy absorption by the body, increasing the transfer of nutrients rapidly throughout the body. Additionally, the powder can be added to virtually any liquid, making it easy to drink with water alone or as an additive to more complex juices and smoothies.
As a daily supplement sold in a 30-day pack, Jiru makes it easy to increase your vegetable intake, add vital nutrition and fiber to your diet, and build a healthy habit for your whole life.
