FASTING for health and beauty

with our KOUSO drink

The purpose of fasting using our KOUSO drinks is to empty the digestive tract to allow the organs related digestion to rest, by temporarily suspending food intake (except KOUSO drinks, water or fluids).
Next, transition period after fasting is also important. When eating again, it sends a message that “fasting is finished” to the body. Gradually return to a normal eating routine. You would take the same number of days of fasting for the transition periods.
It is a very important period for the digestive organs and to prevent rebounding. Avoid stimulants, oily food, and high caloric meals, and eat food, which is easy to digest.
Try a fasting using KOUSO drink by first replacing breakfast, and then, after growing accustomed, replacing all three meals.
In addition to nutrients from fruits and vegetables, YAMATO KOUSO's KOUSO drink (fermented plant extract) contain a wide variety of nutrients such as dietary fiber to support beneficial Lactobacillus bacteria, oligosaccharides, and fermentation products from effective microorganisms. They provide nutritional support during a fast.

Key Points For Successful KOUSO fasting

  1. Replenish yourself with 1 to 3 liters of liquid per day.
    Drink water, lukewarm water, or caffeine-free tea.
  2. You may experience headaches and fatigue from insufficient minerals and salt, so make sure to replenish yourself with salt.
    Lick a small amount of natural salt or pickled plums, or drink kelp tea.
  3. Your post-fast meal (a light meal) is very important. Chew the ingredients (solid food) well and slowly, gradually return to your regular amount.
