COMPANY PROFILEHISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF ORYZALOSE

Fermented Ancient Rice to Stay Vigorous in the Aging Society,
Free from Bedridden

We have two types of physical strength; namely, "the action strength" and "the defensive strength". The action strength relates to the exercise,while the defensive exercise maintains life. Each strength becomes depressed in accordance with aging. The depression of the action strength is subjective,however,the depression of the defensive strength is somewhat unnoticeable in a daily life. The defensive strength is rapidly depressed,not only by the aging,but complications of environmental pollution,unbalanced diet,smoking,stress,etc. All of the activation of brains,the reinforcement of the anti-oxidation ability and immunity are the three elements of the defensive strength for staying off the bedridden.

There are many reports on food ingredients for supplementing the defensive strength.
Among those,the function of "ancient rice" has recently been spotlighted. The fermented ancient rice,capable of supplying with oryzalose (polysaccharide arabinoxylan),anthocyan and GABA,is considered excellent anti-aging food,helping to live vigorous in the aging society.
