"I hear it's good for beauty and health, but is it true...?"

I will answer these questions.

In this article,

  • Nutrients contained in amazake

I will explain.

I hear that it is good for beauty and health, but I think that you can understand how specific nutrients work.

This is Kayada from Tenryohai Sake Brewery.

Tenryohai has been producing Amazake since 2005.

This year will be my 16th year.

As an amazake professional who has been making amazake for many years, I will try to explain it properly.

5 Nutrients in Amazake


The sweetness of amazake made from koji is due to glucose, which is the saccharification of rice starch.
Unlike amazake made from sake lees, it has a natural sweetness without using sugar.

Glucose is the only energy source that the brain can use, and amazake contains a lot of it.
Drinking when you can't concentrate on your desk work should give you energy for your work afterwards.

It does not need to be digested in the body and directly becomes energy for the brain and body, so it is gentle on the stomach and can be taken without burden.

B vitamins

B vitamins are essential for helping convert carbohydrates into energy (metabolism), and amazake contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, niacin, and folic acid. It is suitable for dieting because it helps protein synthesis and lipid metabolism.

In addition, it activates the cells of the skin and mucous membranes, so you can expect a beautiful skin effect.

dietary fiber oligosaccharide

The abundant oligosaccharides and dietary fiber contained in amazake are nutrients that regulate the intestinal environment.
Oligosaccharides feed good bacteria, and dietary fiber traps accumulated wastes and promotes bowel movements. This will improve the intestinal environment, relieve constipation, and improve immunity.

Many people do not know that amazake is effective in relieving constipation, so I would like women who suffer from constipation to drink it as a habit.

Essential amino acids

Amazake contains all 9 kinds of essential amino acids that cannot be produced in the body, and it leads to various effects such as recovery from fatigue, improvement of immunity, beautiful skin effect and sound sleep effect.

The human body is composed of about 20 kinds of amino acids. Nine of these are called essential amino acids, which cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from the diet.

Amazake contains all nine of these essential amino acids.
Among them, the three amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine are said to suppress the production of lactic acid, one of the fatigue substances. gets better.

By drinking it warmed up, you can expect a more restful sleep effect, so if you are worried that you can't get rid of fatigue, please try it.

Kojic acid Ergothioneine

Ergothioneine is a type of amino acid that is abundant in mushrooms and fungi, and is said to have excellent antioxidant properties.

Kojic acid, which is produced when koji mold ferments rice, suppresses the production of melanin, which causes spots and freckles, and is expected to have a whitening effect. It also has anti-glycation and antioxidant properties, helping to prevent aging in the body.

In addition, various effects can be expected from the cooperation of the nutrients contained in amazake, such as a relaxing effect due to essential amino acids and glucose, and an anti-aging effect.

This time, I explained the nutrients, but I also summarized the effects that can be expected from drinking amazake, so if you need it, please see below.
