"Amazake is said to be good for your health, but you can't trust it ... 』\
This time I am writing an article for such people.
Amazake is an increasing number of drinkers.
On TV and the Internet, " Intravenous drip to drink It is said that it is good for beauty and health ...
"Is that really the case? 』\
"Somehow suspicious ..."
I think so.
Amazake is said to be good for your health, but there are some points to be aware of.
In this article, I would like to touch on the truth and lies of health information about amazake!
Huh! ?? Is amazake not good for your health?
In conclusion, Amazake does have health benefits, but relying on it alone is not very good.
Only the health benefits of amazake are covered in the media, but it is not good to swallow it completely.
Now, let me tell you about the true and false health benefits of amazake from three perspectives.
① Don't overconfidence! ?? Amazake diet
"Amazake has a dieting effect"
Certainly this is not a lie.
According to the research results published by the Gekkeikan Research Institute, by feeding amazake (made from rice jiuqu and lees) to mice, weight gain could be suppressed even when eating high-fat food. There is a report that. (( Reference link )
In addition, the "vitamin B group" and "α-ethylglycoside" contained in rice koji amazake increase basal metabolism (the minimum energy required to sustain life) and suppress weight gain. There is work.
However, by overconfident in this and relying too much on amazake, On the contrary, the cause of getting fat It may become.
The reason is that the main ingredient of amazake is " Sugar Because it is.
Just because you want to lose weight, if you drink many cups a day, you may end up saying "I was getting fat even though I was drinking to lose weight", so it is forbidden to overconfide in the diet effect.
It is most effective to follow the standard of drinking and continue daily without drinking a lot at one time or increasing the number of times of drinking.
I will explain the guideline such as the amount and frequency of drinking later!
② Is the beauty effect of amazake really? ??
It is true that amazake has a beauty effect.
However, as with dieting, drinking too much is not a good idea.
Amazake contains ingredients such as "biotin," "kojic acid," and "ferulic acid," which are good for women who moisturize the skin and hair and prevent blemishes and wrinkles. It does not mean that you should drink a lot.
If you drink a lot, you may get a cosmetological effect, but at the same time, you will also take sugar.
Eating too much sugar can lead to obesity and can lead to lifestyle-related diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
By drinking a glass of amazake after waking up in the morning, drinking instead of eating rice, and continuing to drink an appropriate amount every day, you can expect that your skin and hair will become beautiful little by little.
③ Can amazake really improve the intestinal environment?
Amazake has the effect of improving the intestinal environment and can be expected to improve constipation, but it is still important to have a nutritionally balanced diet.
Oligosaccharides and dietary fiber contained in amazake serve as food for human intestinal bacteria and make soft stools.
It also contains magnesium, which hydrates the stool and promotes defecation.
Another thing that is often misunderstood is "jiuqu".
It is easy to think that it contains live Jiuqu, but the Jiuqu is killed in the process of making amazake.
In fact, you don't need to take "live Jiuqu" to improve your intestinal environment.
Even if Jiuqu is dead, it serves as food for the good bacteria that live in the intestines and is indirectly useful.
What is important is not "living Jiuqu", but a wide variety of nutrients such as vitamins and amino acids produced by enzymes produced by Jiuqu.
As you can see, there is no doubt that it contains various nutrients.
It also has the effect of improving the intestinal environment, but it does not mean that constipation will be cured by drinking it, so please do not trust it excessively and drink a large amount.
Keeping in mind a diet with a good nutritional balance and continuing to drink amazake moderately will eventually lead to an improvement in the intestinal environment.
After all, how much amazake should I drink?
So far, I have explained the truth and lies of amazake.
Then, when actually drinking, how much should I drink as a guide?
Here, I would like to tell you about the standard amount of amazake.
The standard is about 200g a day!
When you drink amazake, take 100g at a time and about 200g a day as a guide.
"that? Less than I expected ... ”
You might think so.
However, as I mentioned earlier, the main ingredient of amazake is glucose.
in short," Sugar It is.
Taking too much may cause obesity and may cause lifestyle-related diseases, so if you continue to take it into your normal diet, you will be healthy as a result. And beauty effects can be obtained.
It is also important not to swallow the information in the media too much.
It is an image that it is good because it is a "living fungus".
Certainly, good bacteria such as lactic acid bacteria work to improve the intestinal environment by entering the human intestine in a living state.
However, that does not always apply to other fungi. As I mentioned earlier about Jiuqu, "" Don't simply trust the phrase "it's good because it's a living fungus."
Even if it is dead, it will do a useful job for people. Keep in mind that it is not the Jiuqu that is important, but the wide variety of nutrients produced by the enzymes produced by it.
How was it?
This time, I talked about "the true and false health effects of amazake."
- To summarize what I said, amazake has a dieting effect, but if you drink too much, it may lead to obesity.
- Amazake has a beauty effect, but drinking too much is not good.
- Amazake has the effect of adjusting the intestinal environment, but the most important thing is a nutritionally balanced diet.
- Jiuqu does not have to be taken alive.
It will be.
It is not recommended to drink amazake only for health benefits.
Avoiding excessive expectations and continuing to have fun will result in good health benefits.
Let's enjoy the amazake life without simply swallowing the information in the media!
