Alzheimer’s disease cured with copper ions?アルツハイマー病が銅イオンで治る?!

The following article appeared in the Nikkei Economic Daily on 2 April 2001. Professor Sugimoto of Konan University succeeded in an experiment in which he inhibited the formation of a protein deposited in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease by administering copper ions.Alzheimer’s disease is thought to be caused by proteins that are quickly broken down in the normal state, but which are deposited and harden in the brain, invading nerve cells. Professor Sugimoto confirmed that when copper ions were mixed with this protein, copper and part of the protein bound together and prevented the protein from increasing. However, this was in a test tube. They tried various metals, but copper ions seemed to be the most effective. For more information, check the website.
A word from the 12th generation Kita Juzaemon❣
As a tea master for generations, the most difficult thing for a tea shop is to harvest new tea and keep it fresh. This is because Japanese green tea is made by stopping fermentation in the early stages of production. The green colour of tea leaves can easily fade due to light, heat and oxidation. Therefore, OMGT LLC’s matcha paste, which is based on the principle of boiling in a copper pot, a novel way to stop the matcha matcha colour fading, is rich in copper ions. Therefore, we found this research from our knowledge of copper. The matcha paste tastes softer and has a good thirst-quenching matcha paste. Of course, it is made from safe and secure organic Uji matcha.

代々続く茶師ではありますが茶屋の困ることは、新茶を収穫してその新鮮さを保つことが一番の課題です。それは、日本緑茶は、製造初期の段階で発酵を止めて製造をしているからです。茶葉の緑色は、光、熱、酸化などで簡単に退色をします。そこで、OMGT LLCの緑茶(抹茶)色の退色を止める奇想天外な方法である、銅鍋で茹でる原理を応用した抹茶ペーストには、銅イオンが豊富に含まれています。
