Taikyousai This festival offers thanks for a bountiful harvest and catch. Various foods are prepared for the deities using duck and salmon. Bonfires are lit at night, when dances are also performed.

Do we really need Muti-Strains Probiotics?

Image
Multiple strains of probiotics
Not all good bacteria have the same function in the body.

This makes it necessary to supplement with a well balanced, well researched formula to achieve optimal health.

Some bacteria work in the upper part of your digestive system, while others work towards the end (bottom - no pun intended) of your digestive system.

Hence, it necessary to choose a product that contains several strains of Probiotics. One such example is Bio-15 which contains 15 clinically proven strains of probiotics.

What is the Lifespan of our Hair?

Image
The lifespan of a human hair is 3 to 7 years on average. While you quite a few hairs each day, your hairs actually have a pretty long life providing they aren’t subject to any trauma. Your hairs will likely get to see several different haircuts, styles, and even possibly decades before they fall out on their own.

Salmon sold in our Stores contain huge amounts of Contaminants!

Image
Almost 100% of the salmon that is sold to Asia in stores is farm-raised and can contain as many as 16 more contaminants than wild salmon. Did you realize even realize that farmed salmon are gray and not supposed to be pink (unlike their wild salmon cousins)? Since farm raised do not consume their natural foods, they are given colouring agents that give them the salmony pink colour. In recent studies, this colouring agent has been shown to cause a marid of human related illnesses including cancer. If possible, consume Wild Salmon instead of the farm bred ones.

Probiotics Are Vital For Women’s Health

Image
Both oral probiotics and douching supplementation can prevent and cure vaginitis and vaginosis. An interesting study on probiotics and vaginosis was conducted in a 2007 by the University of Milan (Drago et al).

They found that after a 6 day daily douche of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus paracasei F19, 92.5% of women had their vaginosis cured. The fishy order was cured in all women. The pH levels of women were normalized to 4.5 in 34 out of 40 women. Probiotics has also been shown to reduce mastisis.

About H. Pyori Infection

Image
Historically, it was widely believed that the highly acidic environment of the stomach would keep the stomach immune from infection.
However, a large number of studies have indicated that most cases of peptic ulcers, gastritis, and stomach cancer are caused by Helicobacter pylori (H. Pyori) infection.
Bio-15 has been shown to "kill" H. Pyori in our stomach.

FESTIVALS IN JAPAN - Nov 23

Image
Hadakambo Festival (Naked Man Festival)

Hofu Tenman-gu Shrine, Hofu, Yamaguchi Prefecture
One of the most famous 'naked' festivals in Southern Japan. Men dressed only in loincloths brave the cold to carry mikoshi (floats) through the streets of Hofu to the Tenman-gu Shrine.

Breast-Fed=Higher IQ

Image
90% of breast-fed children get higher IQ points than those who are formula fed. 90% of babies carry a specific genes needed to digest breast milk fats into polyunsaturated fatty acids that develop the brain. Those babies end up with more IQ points. This research study was done in England and New Zealand in 2007 and included more than 3,000 children. Infant-Formula Industry: Unethical Tactics In summer 2007, The Health and Human Services Department ran an ad campaign showing health risks for infants who are not breast-fed. Soon the infant-formula industry, through lobbying, was able to force the Health and Human Services Department to replace its ads by new ones that do not mention any risks and only emphasize benefits of breast feeding. We will discuss on the benefits of breast feeding & probiotics in later blogs.

There Are More Than 100 (known) Benefits To Taking Probiotics

Image
According to the book, Probiotics by Casey Adam Ph.D., there are more than 100 benefits to supplementing with probiotics. Hundreds of studies have shown different species of probiotics confer different health benefits. However, we must take these probiotics in their proper context. For example, almost every probiotic study requires the patient to take large, therapeutic doses, for at least two months. Often times, the studies conferred the benefits after an entire year of daily, large dose supplementation.

During your lifetime, you will produce enough saliva to fill two swimming pools.

Saliva plays an important part in beginning the digestive process and keeping the mouth lubricated, and your mouth produces quite a bit of it on a daily basis.

Cry to Protect Yourself

Image
Tears and mucus contain an enzyme (lysozyme) that breaks down the cell wall of many bacteria. This is to your advantage, as the mucus that lines your nose and throat, as well as the tears that wet your eyes are helping to prevent bacteria from infecting those areas and making you sick.

Probiotics Produce Antibiotic Chemicals

Image
In the book Probiotics, Protection Against Infection, Casey Adamas writes: “To protect against pathogens, [probiotics] will produce a number of natural antibiotics designed to reduce the populations of [pathogenic bacteria]…” Moreover, these antibiotic substances are perfectly tuned to kill the invading pathogens. And if the pathogens become resistant to that chemical, then the probiotics will change strategies and produce a new, more effective antibiotic chemical. Contrast this dynamic probiotic strategy to our static, oral antibiotics which must be phased out every few years (as pathogens evolve resistance). While we may be able to continue to discover new antibiotic substances, nature will always win in the long term. The bacteria will always evolve resistance. This is illustrated by the fact that bacteria can even survive in nuclear waste! Currently, under labaoratory tests, Bio-15 Probiotics have shown to be able to "kill" viruses & anti-biotic resistant  bacteria such…

Are You Getting Your Vitamins? Better Get Your Probiotics.

Image
It has been proven that probiotics produce a huge number of vitamins, such as: Vitamin A Vitamin K Vitamins B1-B3, B5-B7, B9, B12 Essential Fatty Acids So perhaps the need for B-vitamin supplementation is really a call for proper probiotic colonization. I look forward to the day when probiotic companies and organic food companies put vitamin companies out of business. Additionally, probiotics also increase the digestibility, bioavailability and processing of a large number of nutrients, including: copper calcium magnesium iron manganese potassium zinc proteins fats carbohydrates sugars milk phytonutrients cholesterol For example, Bio-15 Probiotic, as it undergoes a tedious 6 years natural fermentation process, contains 18 types of Amino Acids, 10 types of Vitamins, 9 types of Minerals & 4 types of Organic Acids. Imagine All that plus 15 strains of Clinically tested Friendly Bacteria & Prebiotics in just 1 capsule!

How Large are our Lungs?

Image
The surface area of a human lung is equal to a Tennis court! In order to more efficiently oxygenate the blood, the lungs are filled with thousands of branching bronchi and tiny, grape-like alveoli. These are filled with microscopic capillaries which oxygen and carbon dioxide. The large amount of surface area makes it easier for this exchange to take place, and makes sure you stay properly oxygenated at all times.

Do You Know? When you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red!

Probiotics Fight Cancer, Colds and Constipation

Image
It may not surprise you to hear that probiotics can reduce constipation (Italy, Amenta et al. 2006). But what may surprise you, is that probiotics play a role in cancer. They have been shown stimulate production of anti-cancer chemicals (Hatakka et al. 2008). The probiotics, Lactobacillus casei, have also been shown in Tokyo to reduce the risk of bladder cancer, depending on frequency and dosage (Ohashi et al. 2002). Numerous probiotics have been shown to fight viruses such as colds, the flu, rotavirus, herpes and ulcers. In New Delhi, 100 children ages 2-5 were given L. acidophilus for 6 months. These children have fewer incidences of colds, flu, diarrhea and fever than the placebo group (Saran et al. 2002). In Japan, Bio E has conducted several studies in hospital in the Philippines & South East Asia that has shown remarkable improvements & shortened days of recovery on children using Bio-15 & Biogenics MD probiotics.

There Are 10 Times More Probiotics Than Cells In Our Body!

Image
In a healthy person, there are more than 100-300 Trillion probiotic bacteria and yeast, compared to only 10 trillion cells in our body. According to Mary Ellen Sanders, if the bacteria in our body were laid end to end, they would encircle the globe 2.5 times. It's no wonder recent science has begun on a quest in understanding Probiotics & the Microbiome it has on our lives.

FESTIVALS IN JAPAN - Nov 2 - 4

Karatsu Kunchi Festival

Karatsu, Saga Prefecture
Famous in Japan for its hikiyama floats. These are carried on the shoulder like ordinary mikoshi (i.e. floats) but are topped with outlandishly decorated fish, lions, samurai helmets and other paraphernalia. They lead a boisterous, saké-fuelled parade around the town.

We Get a New Stomach Lining - When?

Image
You get a new stomach lining every three to four days. The mucus-like cells lining the walls of the stomach would soon dissolve due to the strong digestive acids in your stomach if they weren’t constantly replaced. Those with ulcers know how painful it can be when stomach acid takes its toll on the lining of your stomach.
