Easily Incorporate Plant-based Lactic Acid Bacteria for Better Health

Would you like to restore your original Japanese intestinal environment?

Kawashimaya's Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder is a supplement powder that is perfect for supporting gut health.
Because the powder almost has no taste and smell, you can easily add it to any drink and food.

Why Do We Focus on Plant-based Lactic Acid Bacteria?

① Plant-based Lactic Acid Bacteria are Perfect for People Who Follow Japanese Traditional Diet!

Japanese people have long been eating fermented foods like pickles and miso as preserved foods. Plant-based lactic acid bacteria refer to the lactic acid bacteria that naturally inhabit these fermented foods.
Lactic acid bacteria are a type of good bacteria that are essential for forming a normal intestinal environment.

② A Diverse Range of Lactic Acid Bacteria is Necessary for Intestinal Health

Recently, it has become clear that the two are not antagonistic but rather that a balanced intake of plant-based and animal-based lactic acid bacteria is very important for maintaining a healthy intestinal environment.

1. Plant-based lactic acid bacteria are good bacteria essential for the intestinal environment.
2. In the modern day, the intake of plant-based lactic acid bacteria among people is decreasing.
3. Since a diverse range of lactic acid bacteria is necessary for the intestinal environment, it is important to consume both plant-based and animal-based lactic acid bacteria in a balanced manner.

With the Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder derived from Japanese fermented foods, you can easily supplement plant-based lactic acid bacteria into your life.

Just one teaspoon a day is enough!
This suplement powder allows you to easily get the plant-based lactic acid bacteria" that are often lacking in daily meals.
Take about 1 teaspoon (approximately 3g) per day, divided into 1-2 servings.
Because it's a food product, you can consume it easily at your preferred time and in your preferred way.

Recommended Points by a Nutritionist

For those who are concerned about their intestinal health but are too busy to consume multiple types of fermented foods daily, or for children with many likes and dislikes, or for elderly people with small appetites, it is recommended. It is also good for those who want to consume lactic acid bacteria in a form closer to food rather than supplements. Since it is something you take every day, it is recommended for those who want to incorporate it with peace of mind using organic ingredients without unnecessary additives or chemicals.

The Ways to Use Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder are Endless!

The charm of lactic acid bacteria powder lies in its versatility. You can enjoy it in various ways to suit your preferences and everyday cooking.

Recommended Points from a Nutritionist

If you add it to something you consume daily, you won’t forget to take it. For example, if you drink coffee in the morning, add it to your coffee; if you eat yogurt, add it to your yogurt. This makes it easy to continue as a habit. Additionally, if you want to include it in your family’s diet, adding it to one dish at dinner, such as miso soup, or sprinkling it on meat before baking, ensures that everyone in the family can consume it.

Person Image

The way to consume Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder varies depending on your lifestyle and body type. Find the intake method and time that suits you best.

1. The First Attempt

Try the same method of intake for two weeks.

2. If You Don't Feel Any Changes

Try reducing the amount, dividing it into several times a day, or changing the time of intake.

3. Don't Rush

Changing the intake method frequently in a short period can make it difficult to understand which method suits you. Take your time to find the best method for you.

Recommended Intake Timing

Morning Wake-up Time: When you wake up in the morning, peristaltic movements that push stool through the intestines are promoted by getting up. Drinking it with warm water wakes up your intestines. Drinking warm water in the morning is a classic intestinal health practice.

Person Image

Breakfast Time

When breakfast enters an empty stomach, the large intestine is stimulated, and peristaltic movements that push stool through the intestines, known as "gastrocolic reflex," begin. Mix it into your meal or dessert after meals.

Person Image

Before Bedtime

At night, the parasympathetic nervous system becomes dominant, and the intestines move actively. Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder is low in calories, so it is also safe to consume at night.

Each person's intestinal environment is different. By finding the right way to consume Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder that suits you, you can enhance the effects on health and beauty. Find your ideal method step by step at your own pace!

Comments from a Colorectal Specialist

Lactic acid bacteria are not medicine but food. Basically, you can take them at any time you like. Even taking them every two days can be effective, but for making it a habit, daily intake is best. Lactic acid bacteria gradually accumulate in the body, but if you stop taking them, they will slowly decrease again. It's very important to continue taking them for a long time to enjoy their benefits.

Q&A about Organic Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder for Gut Health

When is the best time to drink it during the day?

As it is food, there is no set time to drink it. The important thing is to continue daily. Drink it at any time you like, before or after meals, or before bedtime.

Is it okay to take it with medicine?

As it is food, there are generally no issues, but depending on the type of medication, you may need to be careful. If you are taking medication or under medical treatment, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

How long should I continue taking it?

As it is food, there is no set time to drink it. The important thing is to continue daily. Drink it at any time you like, before or after meals, or before bedtime. Try continuing for two weeks. Although individual differences exist, small changes are often felt after about two weeks. It takes time to change the gut flora. Stabilizing the gut environment may take about 3 to 6 months.

I don't feel the effects as much as I did initially.

If you feel the effects have diminished, try changing the way or timing of intake. It will alter the gut environment and rebalance the good and bad bacteria. Instead of stopping altogether, reduce the amount for a few days and then return to the original intake. Continue taking it.

Can infants take it?

Although this product is safe, using only domestically produced organic ingredients, infants have immature gut environments. Start with small amounts after they complete weaning at around 18 months. If your child has constipation or loose stools, consult a doctor before giving it to them.

Can pregnant or breastfeeding women take it?

Generally, there should be no issues with intake. However, since this is a sensitive period for your body, it is not recommended.

Does it contain butyrate bacteria?

As it uses fermented foods as raw materials, it may contain trace amounts of butyrate bacteria, but this product is mainly intended to provide plant-based lactic acid bacteria. To increase butyrate bacteria, it is recommended to consume dietary fiber rather than foods containing butyrate bacteria.

Is there anything to be careful about in terms of storage?

Store in a cool place, avoiding direct sunlight and high humidity. Ensure the top zipper is tightly closed after opening to prevent degradation.

Does it contain allergens?

As soy sauce is used in the manufacturing process of "Kurahana Lactic Acid Bacteria," it contains wheat and soybeans (from the 28 allergen items).

What is dextrin included in the ingredients?

It is starch derived from sweet potatoes and tapioca (non-GMO, pesticide-free, allergen-free, and quality-standard tested). It is a necessary ingredient to make lactic acid bacteria into a powder, so please don't worry.

Will it work without dissolving in stomach acid?

Since the Lactic Acid Bacteria Powder for Gut Health originally contains dead bacteria, it won't be destroyed by stomach acid like live bacteria.

I want to know about the lactic acid bacteria used in the product.

We use 3 types of lactic acid bacteria (Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Pediococcus pentosaceus, Lactobacillus plantarum) obtained from Japanese plant-based foods.
