Supplements to Help You Live, Feel…., and Smell Better

Japan is a nation of health nuts. There is a huge market for dietary supplements; there are even some you will not find here in the United States, the birthplace of dietary supplements.

Take, for example, “Rose Sapuri” that has been selling by the millions. Rose Sapuri is “Perfume you can eat.” It will make your breath slightly scented with a hint of rose. Sounds like something out of Shojo Manga!!! Now you will breathe easily and sleep well at night without worrying about embarrassing body odors. It also claims to improve your skin.

My routine is to start my day with swag of black vinegar in the morning and to end it with “Aojiru(Green Juice)” at night. Aojiru comes in many different varieties, but my favorite is the one made from wheat barley. Just mix the green powder with water or any other liquid, and it’s ready to be consumed. It certainly rid me of irregularities and is supposed to work for many other chronic conditions. Whether it will help me live to be 100? Come back and ask me in 50 years.

Want Smooth Skin? No Need to Inject Collagen – Just Eat It

As kids we’re told that eating too much chocolate or potato chips will give us breakouts. But is it possible to eat your way to better skin?

Japanese organic cosmetics company Fancl seems to think so. That’s why they’ve partnered with Ito-Yokado, the ubiquitous grocery superstore, to create a series of collagen-infused foods. Yes, collagen – the lip plumper and wrinkle reducer normally available only at a plastic surgeon’s or dermatologist’s office.

Fancl’s food line is also enhanced with kale extract, known for reducing weight.

The whole thing reminds me of Jamba Juice and their boosts. I never know which supplement to add to my smoothie: Protein? Vitamin C to fight off a cold? How about calcium or fiber? It’s probably a placebo effect – just knowing that I’m eating fruit, lowfat yogurt and vitamins tends to make me feel great. (Let’s not discuss the sugar.)

But back to botox. Japanese women really value perfect skin, so it makes sense that they pop supplement pills or drink collagen elixirs. Fancl has simply taken the ball and run with it, infusing bread and sweets with life-enhancing additives.

Do people really believe that eating make-up can make them over from the inside out?

Apparently yes – who am I to argue with Oprah?
