Kangen Ukon – What’s So Special About Ukon (Turmeric) Grown in Okinawa?
Recent research has shown a superior efficacy in turmeric grown in Okinawa over turmeric grown in Southeast Asia. This difference may be attributed to several factors. The rich Okinawan soil is perfectly suited to grow and cultivate turmeric. Another natural advantage of the Okinawan location is the angle and length of sunshine that ends up being perfectly attuned to growing this crop. Turmeric is best grown with temperatures between 68 to 86 degree Fahrenheit – temperatures that are found in Okinawa!
Ukon sold by Enagic is grown in the Yambaru region on the northern tip of Okinawa. This area is often referred to as “nature’s treasure” in Japanese. The deep forests of this region are consistently free of environmental pollution and the longevity of its people is well known. Japan is well known for having one of the healthiest and longest living people on the planet, but did you know that Okinawa has the highest number of people over 100 years of age?
The organically grown Ukon farms are 100% free of harmful chemicals which are used in conventional lower-quality turmeric farming.
Once harvested the Ukon (turmeric) is thoroughly washed in Enagic’s strong acidic water to maximize purity and potency in all of their products. The process behind creating Ukon is so innovative that Enagic obtained a patent for it!
The 100% plant based soft gel capsule is made complete with antioxidant ingredients such as olive oil, flaxseed, essential oils, and tocotrienol. The coating of the capsule is made from carrageenan, a seaweek derivative.
