Buckwheat sprouts grown with advanced technology and spring water from the foot of Mount Fuji contain functional components such as rutin and anthocyanins. "Sobanomegumi FBP-100" is a dietary supplement containing ‘Fermented Buckwheat Sprout Extract,’ which is made by turning the buckwheat sprouts into green juice and fermenting them with two types of plant-based lactic acid bacteria. Fermentation not only alters the nutritional components of buckwheat sprouts but also enhances the production of lactic acid bacteria and their beneficial substances.
‘Fermented Buckwheat Sprout Extract’ is a health food ingredient made by fermenting buckwheat sprouts with plant-based lactic acid bacteria. Fermented food by lactic acid bacteria is a traditional Japanese food. By adding purely cultured plant-based lactic acid bacteria to green juice made from buckwheat sprouts and fermenting it, many substances beneficial to the body (lactic acid bacteria production substances) are produced. Furthermore, the nutrients in the buckwheat sprouts are broken down into smaller molecules by the lactic acid bacteria.
The buckwheat sprouts, are grown hydroponically without pesticides, but the red color of the buckwheat sprout stems becomes stronger in winter when the temperature difference between day and night is greater. The red color is due to anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol. Buckwheat sprouts themselves have a refreshing taste without any peculiarities, but ‘Fermented Buckwheat Sprout Extract’ has a strong sour taste due to the lactic acid.
Sobanomegumi FBP-100 comes in an easy-to-swallow capsule form and contains 100 mg of the extract powder per capsule. We have conducted joint research with universities and research institutions on the effects of Fermented Buckwheat Sprout Extract, including its effects on lowering blood pressure, reducing the pain of interstitial cystitis and allergic symptoms. Based on the results of these studies, we are developing products so that Sobanomegumi FBP-100 can be useful in your healthy lifestyle.
This is a supplement that can alleviate eye strain and physical fatigue. It contains a combination of ‘garlic sprout powder,’ which is specially processed from garlic sprouts with high nutritional value, and ‘astaxanthin,’ which is known for its high antioxidant power. It also helps maintain beautiful skin by protecting the skin from ultraviolet rays.
The garlic sprouts are grown hydroponically in the same way as buckwheat sprouts. Selected garlic are sprouted, then grown in a fully shaded environment and harvested about two weeks later. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients.
Garlic has a range of biological activities. A typical one is its nourishing and tonic effect. ‘S-allylcysteine,’ ‘cycloalliin,’ and ‘diallyl trisulfide’ are among the functional components of garlic. They are reported to have antioxidant, blood triglyceride-lowering, and anti-cancer properties.
In the Designer Foods Project conducted by the National Cancer Institute in the USA in 1990, garlic was selected as the number one cancer preventive vegetable among about 40 published vegetables.
Our research has shown that ‘S-allylcysteine,’ ‘cycloalliin,’ and ‘diallyl trisulfide’ are more abundant in garlic sprout powder than in garlic. Furthermore, when we conducted an experiment to compare antioxidant capacity, we confirmed that garlic sprouts have an overwhelming capacity to remove reactive oxygen such as ‘SOD,’ ‘hydroxyl radical,’ and ‘singlet oxygen’ over garlic and black garlic. Reactive oxygen, which increases due to stress and UV radiation, are said to be one of the causes of aging and disease. Garlic sprouts protect the body from the damaging effects of reactive oxygen that damage the cells.
Astanin also contains astaxanthin, which is expected to have a synergistic effect with garlic sprouts. Astaxanthin, a type of carotenoid, is a natural red pigment and is abundant in prawns, crabs, and salmon. It has strong antioxidant properties and is particularly effective against singlet oxygen among reactive oxygen species. In fact, it is 110 times more potent than vitamin E, 560 times more potent than green tea catechins, 800 times more potent than coenzyme Q10, and 6,000 times more potent than vitamin C.
