Exclusive Fermentation Science from Japan
Overfed but Undernourished. Have you ever heard the Japanese expression 医⻝同源 or ishokudougen? It encapsulates a profound concept - that we can prevent and treat illnesses through a well-balanced diet. In essence, it emphasizes the idea that 'food is medicine.' Good nutrition holds the key to fortifying our immune systems, extending our lifespans, fostering overall well-being, and enhancing mental happiness. When we talk about good nutrition, we're referring to the consumption of real, naturally, chemical-free, grown foods in appropriate quantities.
Regrettably, in today's world, the most common dietary choices often lean towards processed meats, instant foods, and artificially cultivated crops, which, unfortunately, are lacking in essential nutrients. In the rush of modern life, we frequently overlook the nutritional value of the foods we consume, resulting in a state of undernourishment despite our tendency to overindulge. Moreover, this unbalanced diet has led to a depletion of the beneficial bacteria and enzymes that naturally inhabit our bodies. It's crucial to recognize that we, as humans, are intricately connected to bacteria; our very existence depends on the presence of beneficial bacteria within us. As our bacterial population declines, so does our overall health.
When you think about it, good health is all about common-sense science. Simply speaking, we turn food into fuel for our bodies. Of course, we want the best fuel. Our body, in turn, digests that fuel into proper nutrition to support the many functions that occur. This process is conducted 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So, what we put into our bodies will dictate our health. As a concerned society, let us examine the food chain more closely. If we can conclude that we are what we eat, then we should choose what we put into our bodies carefully!
In today's changing farming landscape, the agricultural industry has transformed. Genetically modified produce and the widespread use of potentially harmful techniques such as herbicides and pesticides have become increasingly common. Meanwhile, organic farming, known for its health benefits and environmental sustainability, often lacks the support it deserves from both industry and government entities. Tragically, the global toll of chemical contamination, bacterial infections, and genetic disorders continues to rise each year. To enhance the collective health of our society, it is imperative that we establish and enforce higher standards and regulations to safeguard the quality and safety of our food supply.
This is precisely where Koso Med distinguishes itself from other companies. We spare no effort in ensuring that our herbs, fruits, and vegetables are cultivated in strict accordance with the Japanese Agricultural Standards - the gold standard for farming quality across the globe. Our commitment extends to maintaining pristine soils and waters and employing techniques that have consistently proven their effectiveness for over a century. It is in the source and the process that Koso Med's unwavering dedication to quality and safety shines.
We take pride in owning and managing our farms in the heart of Japan. At Koso Med, we adhere to the philosophy of 'Tender Loving Care' as our guiding policy in crafting our products. This approach results in fruits and vegetables that are exceptionally rich in vital components such as enzymes (Koso in Japanese signifies enzymes), antioxidants, minerals, prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins, and a remarkable array of approximately 12,000 beneficial plant chemicals. Our commitment to excellence extends even further, as we employ a distinctive strain of 52 friendly bacteria, indigenous to Japan, to ferment our foods. This process not only predigests but also preserves our products.
Our flagship product, BIO POWER 88, embodies our commitment to excellence:
• Naturally fermented

Our edible herbs are sourced from pristine alpine mountains and carefully harvested during the spring season. To ensure unrivaled freshness, we harvest our produce daily, maintaining the integrity of our ingredients, as our factory is located right next to our farms, and the process begins promptly. Freshness is a race against time, and we are committed to wasting none of it. Our goal is to deliver the live enzymes, nutrition, probiotics, and other beneficial components inherent in our ingredients. This preservation of goodness is made possible through our patented fermentation process. In essence, we bring the essence of our farms directly to you.
At Koso Med, we remain steadfast in our pursuit of your health and well-being, offering products that reflect the purest essence of nature.
Is Koso Med primarily a fermentation company? And how exactly do we transform food into health products? To answer these questions, let's examine the world of fermentation and its vital role in our journey towards creating beneficial health products.
Historically, many foods have undergone fermentation, including yogurt, cheese, meat, fish, dairy, vegetables, soybeans, legumes, fruits, and more. This practice goes back to a time when refrigerators and freezers were non-existent, and fermentation was a mean of preservation. However, it's crucial to note that these traditional fermentation processes are often swift and may not yield the full spectrum of benefits, such as digestive enzymes, probiotics, essential nutrients, antioxidants, and more. The pre-digestive stage during fermentation is a critical component for optimizing our digestive systems. Solid foods can be taxing on the body, and the absorption of nutrients is typically limited to less than 5%.
At Koso Med, we employ a patented fermentation process that harnesses the power of 52 strains of robust and friendly bacteria, collectively known as the microbiome, to create truly transformative health products. This intricate process spans over a year and unlocks a myriad of cofactors that are profoundly beneficial for your overall well-being.
The human body hosts approximately 10,000 enzymes, each playing a pivotal role in facilitating various bodily functions. Enzymes are indispensable, and when they are in short supply, organ functions may start to falter. Signs of enzyme deficiency can manifest in premature aging, wrinkles, hair loss, sleep disturbances, and a range of serious diseases. Without an adequate supply of enzymes, our bodies inevitably deteriorate. As we age, our enzyme production diminishes, with a decline of 10% to 15% in enzymatic capacity occurring every decade. Consequently, enzyme therapy is gaining recognition as a means to bolster the body's vitality, particularly in fields that address metabolic syndrome.
Another factor contributing to enzyme deficiency is the prevalence of 'Made to Go Food,' including frozen meals, packaged snacks, fast food, and processed items. These convenience foods, while convenient, lack the enzyme-rich qualities of naturally cooked or baked goods, which have a comparatively short shelf life. In regions like the 'Gold Zone' in Okinawa, Japan, where a significant portion of the population lives beyond 100 years, locals consume a variety of locally fermented products teeming with enzymes. This dietary contrast is stark when compared to the global average life expectancy of 69 years.
Individuals who incorporate an ample supply of enzymes into their diets tend to experience longer, healthier lives. It's essential to scrutinize the choices we make when it comes to 'Made to Go Food.' First and foremost, we must exercise caution regarding harmful ingredients. If an ingredient list contains unintelligible or complex additives, colorings, or preservatives, it's prudent to reconsider its consumption.
Before you make your next purchase of 'Made to Go Food,' ponder these three critical considerations: be mindful of the ingredients, opt for transparency, and avoid products laden with preservatives, chemicals, sodium, colorings, and artificial flavor enhancers. These substances can have detrimental effects, disrupting the balance of beneficial bacteria (enzymes) in our bodies and potentially leading to premature aging and other severe health consequences.
Coloring can cause heart and organ damage. This is another clear red flag. The second issue is that hygiene is a big factor when it comes to manufacturing. Not all facilities are clean, and personnel must be trained in the art of disinfecting.
The third is the actual packaging since many containers, bags, and boxes use PFC compounds that, under certain conditions (heating or cooling), leach into the actual product and could cause serious health issues. Recently, a famous chocolate maker was reported to have Salmonella in their packaged sweets.
This is where digestive enzymes come in handy. We can receive adequate enzymes from raw foods that are unprocessed or altered. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures starting at 42 degrees Celsius. This is why eating food with high enzymatic levels aids digestion and the delivery system.
When eating food (fuel), we need adequate enzymes to convert our bodies' chemicals into nutrients that feed and sustain our bodies. The liver is the main chemist in this process. If there is a lack of digestive enzymes, our organs can go into complete failure. or the main victim is your liver, which will be overworked. In that stage, cells are stored in fat as well. Eventually, they become putrefied and toxic. It is acknowledged that the health supplement industry has created a mess with the synthetic use of vitamins, powders, amino acids, and all other categories. They hide behind the so-called "dietary supplements" category, which allows them to make a vitamin pill with 1% substance and 99% maltodextrin without any regulations. This is slowly but surely poisoning the public with false goods and claims.
We can now compare Koso Med Health Food Products with others. Understanding how to read labels is an important skill when selecting health products. You can see and read many red flags, but the key is when it is almost impossible to understand words like hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or even more simple words like anticaking agents. Please take a look below at a random product we selected.
Now you see the huge difference between natural products and synthetically manufactured health products. Once you make the switch, your body will instantly feel better. The enzymes, probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, and nutrients from fresh, organically grown produce and the 52 beneficial soil bacteria contained in our fermented products make for a complete and holistic diet to support overall wellbeing. Koso Med products are bottles filled with life. Try it and see the difference.
