  • Publication number: 20170049842
    Abstract: Provided is a raw material for a food additive which promotes the intracerebral release of monoamines such as dopamine and noradrenaline, and imparts a function to prevent cranial nerve disease and a function to improve brain function to foods, by being added to said foods. This method involves using as a food additive an oligopeptide mixture containing dipeptides or tripeptides having tyrosine or phenylalanine as constituent amino acids, in order to produce foods to prevent cranial nerve disease or foods to improve brain function.

  • Patent number: 7901724
    Abstract: A fermented tea produced by primary-drying tea material leaves by means of a primary tea rolling dryer (primary drying step) to adjust the moisture content of raw leaves (tea material leaves) of bancha with low qualities (the second crop of tea, the third crop of tea, the shuto-bancha, the skiffed leaves of tea, and the like) to a constant moisture; subsequently, providing them in a tea roller (tea rolling step); adding loquat leaves during the tea rolling step in order to knead loquat leaves together with the tea material leaves; and fermenting and drying the kneaded tea material leaves and loquat leaves. The fermented tea is formed into a composition having, as an active component, the fermented tea obtained by tea-rolling processing of tea material leaves and loquat leaves, and an extract contained in the fermented tea.

  • Publication number: 20060040872
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an agent which inhibits or suppresses calcium channel where dipeptide Val-Tyr (VY) or a substance containing the same is an effective ingredient. Examples of the substance containing VY are hydrolysate (sardine peptide) of fish meat of sardine, etc., and VY or VY-containing substance is also able to be used as food/beverage in addition to pharmaceuticals. In accordance with the present invention, it has been clarified that, in reduction of blood pressure, VY has two actions of calcium channel inhibition in addition to ACE inhibition.

  • Patent number: 4945255
    Abstract: A power source device including a lower voltage inverter transformer having plural secondary windings and a higher voltage inverter transformer having a primary winding connected directly to one of the secondary windings of the lower voltage inverter transformer without any rectifying circuit or inverter circuit interposed therebetween. The lower voltage and higher voltage transformers are contained in the same casing, the internal space of which is filled with an electrically insulative material to provide a unit device.

  • Patent number: 4512954
    Abstract: In a crystal growing apparatus, an electrode is arranged above a crystal raw material melt at a distance therefrom. Changes in the resistance of the atmosphere between the electrode and the melt are detected so as to detect the surface level of the melt. The crystal pulling speed or power supply for heating the melt is controlled in accordance with the detection result, thereby performing dimension control of the crystal.
