It is a fact that in Japan, there are more people over 100 years old per 100,000 population than anywhere else in the world. Japan also has the lowest death rates from cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Thus it was with great interest that I attended the launch of the Maroyaka Kale extract late last month.
Maroyaka Kale is a rich and tasty Aojiru (green juice) made from premium kale. This makes Maroyaka Kale an aojiru in its genuine form. Kale, considered to be an original species of cabbage and broccoli, contains beta-carotene and is high in calcium. It is especially good for people who have, or feel that they have a low intake of vegetables. In other words, you can now drink your vegetables without having to take your blender out of the cupboard!
This was what I did.
In a bowl, I combined the oats, milk and yogurt.
It is a great product for those who want to "eat" more vegetables, and it is definitely a great product to help parents add vegetables to the diets of kids (over 3 years of age) who refuse to eat their vegetables.
Maroyaka Kale is available at Guardian Pharmacy outlets retailing at the introductory price of $79.90 from now till 30th September 2014, after which the usual price of $87.90 applies.
