Natto and the Immune System

As the current research shows, fermented foods can boost your immune system.

Have you ever tried Japanese 'natto'?


'Natto' is one of the great fermented foods from Japan!

It consists of fermented soybeans and is characterized by a slimy, sticky and stringy texture.
...Yikes, it doesn't sound good... But actually it's worth trying!

Natto is very rich in probiotics, vitamin C and several minerals, all of which contribute to a healthy immune system!

Let's eat natto, get better health, and fight the coronavirus!

We have freeze-dried natto. If you are interested, please contact us!

Bye-bye, novel coronavirus! Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

We hope you are safe from the widespread novel coronavirus.

Did you know that Japanese green tea has a lot of catechin, which is believed to boost our immune system?

Especially matcha green tea contains twice as much catechin as green tea.

Matcha also provides a relaxing effect because of teanin contained in it.

Why not start trying matcha which might relax yourself, and make you even healthier until this virus confusion comes to an end?

You can get our organic matcha green tea powder HERE. :)
