Amazake for intestinal activity ~ What is an effective way to start? ~|Ren MURO, a store specializing in rice malt and amazake [official mail order]

Hello, this is Suzuki from Ren MURO Kagurazaka.

Recently, I often see the word "intestinal activity",
Isn't there more people who are conscious of the importance of the intestines again?

Maybe the physical troubles I was worried about were actually caused by my intestines...
In order to improve my physical condition, I want to do something about constipation anyway...
I want to increase my immunity to prevent colds and infections...

Now that we know that the state of the intestines and the health of the body and mind are connected,
I think there are many people who are trying to keep their intestines active in their daily lives.

Even if you say intestinal activity in a bite, there are various methods of intestinal activity.
Eating habits, exercise, enough sleep, massage and conscious relaxation are also included in intestinal activity.

Above all, "dietary habits" that many people who are doing intestinal activities are conscious of.

Eating ingredients that are effective for the intestines, consciously drinking water, taking supplements,
I think people have different ways of thinking about it.

[precious intestinal active drink amazake]

Yogurt, natto, kimchi, cheese, seaweeds, mushrooms, cereals, bananas and other fruits are known as representative ingredients that are said to lead to intestinal activity.

The reason why it is an intestinal active ingredient is that it contains dietary fiber and oligosaccharides,
It is a fermented food that contains lactic acid bacteria, natto bacteria, bifidobacteria, etc. produced by fermentation.

These are useful ingredients for the large intestine and have the effect of improving bowel movements.

Intestinal active ingredients

Amazake, which is made by fermenting rice, which is a grain, with koji mold, is a valuable intestinal activity drink .
The dietary fiber and oligosaccharides contained in amazake serve as food for good bacteria, helping to improve the intestinal environment.
Because the starch and protein are converted to sugar and amino acids during the fermentation process,
It can be said that it can be absorbed without putting a burden on the intestines and quickly restores the intestines.

[How to find intestinal ingredients that suit you]

A variety of intestinal ingredients.
I think there are many people who are trying various things to see which one suits them.

If you eat intestinal active ingredients, the constipation that has been bothering you since the next day will be cured...
Unfortunately, it often doesn't work.

So try taking it every day. And it is important to see the situation for a few days to two weeks and judge whether it is suitable for you.

The balance of good bacteria, bad bacteria, and opportunistic bacteria that make up the intestinal environment changes rapidly in a short period of time, depending on factors such as diet and stress conditions.

When the intestinal environment improves, it is said that the improvement effect will appear in the body in about two weeks.

Speaking for myself, I started drinking amazake half a year ago,
By the time I continued to drink for 10 days, I felt that my intestines were getting better.

[Effective way to start amazake life]

As mentioned above, it is important to try amazake, which is an intestinal stimulant, for about two weeks .

Then, when you start drinking amazake,
How can you apply it effectively in your life?

As a guideline for the amount to drink , it is said that it is good to take 100 to 200cc a day.
Of course, you can split this amount over the course of the day.

Drinking time is basically OK at any timing!
There are effects that can be expected depending on the time, so it is also recommended to take it according to your physical condition.

・Morning ☞ Glucose and amino acids that are well absorbed switch on the metabolism. In addition, since it activates the movement of the intestines, you can expect an improvement in bowel movements.

・Afternoon☞If you take it in the evening when you are more likely to feel tired, it will nourish your brain and body. It also reduces fatigue, improves concentration, and refreshes your mood.

・Night: The gentle sweetness and aroma of koji will make you feel at ease, and the amino acids contained in amazake will enhance your relaxation. By making the parasympathetic nerves easier to work at night, the intestinal function is also increased.

How to drink is free!
In addition to drinking it straight, it is also recommended to mix it with soy milk or milk, add yogurt or fruit to make a smoothie, heat it in the microwave on a cold day, or mix it with tea or herbal tea.
