The present study reaffirmed that single-use of disorder-orientated functional foods may not be effective in resolving certain muscle- and orientation-relevant health problems. A male diabetic patient P on a functional food A (a product for blood pressure control) intake for more than 10 yr suffered from certain physical symptoms (PSs) such as forearm Grip-holding (FGH) muscular strength (PS-1), hindlimb joints (HJs) discomfort (PS-2), physical balance or orientation on one-legged standing (PS-3), and urination flow onset-latency and duration of complete emptying (PS-4) as well as poor metabolic indexes such as high levels of total cholesterols (T-Cho), low-density lipoprotein-cholesterols (LDL-C), triglycerides (TG), and HbA1C. When intake of A was complemented with daily product B, intake all PSs improved in a time-dependent manner; with different PS improvements requiring different intake duration: shorter intake duration for PS-1 (3-wk intake and thereafter), and longer intake durations for other PSs (at least more than 3-month intake). Additionally, high levels of T-Cho and relevant indexes were also improved over time with different intake durations, although the blood sugar levels (HbA1c) were unaffected. T-Cho (3-month intake), LDL-C (3-month intake), TG (after 6-month intake) were restored after different intake durations; however, blood sugar levels (HbA1c) were unaffected despite mulberry leaf extract having been documented to reduce blood sugar levels. Improvements of PSs and metabolic indexes were probably due to complementary effects of B whose effects in combination with A improved metabolic activity, nutritional, blood circulation and neurological effects and may have contributed to the favorable outcomes in this study.

Promoting Psychological and Health Status of the Elderly: The Underlying Mechanisms of Chin-Don Therapy

Chin-Don (CD) performance – a kind of musical performance for common people in Japan during the Edo Period – has been proven useful for healthcare promotion and healing, and was therefore employed as CD therapy (CDT) in a series of studies. Since CDT induces favorable outcomes in three elderly subjects, we further investigated the benefits of CDT in promoting quality-of-life in the cognitively impaired elderly using objective approaches: i) measuring salivary cortisol and immunoglobulin-A; ii) self-assessment of mood, emotion, and behavior using a face-scale; (iii) monitoring blood levels of neurotransmitters such as adrenalin (AD), noradrenalin (NA), and dopamine (DP) as well as the stress-related hormone cortisol (CT) and β-endorphin (BE); and (iv) monitoring stress-related CT, as well as immunodefense system-related BE and natural killer (NK) cell activity. Our studies focus on endogenous factors closely related to humor, laughter, stress, emotion, depression, joy, movement, and other apparent physiological responses such as being more alert and aroused (such as AD, NA, CT, BE). CDT works effectively in improving mood (emotional and psychological states) for the elderly. The significant blood CT level decreases in CDT patents may have due to less stress during CDT exposure, as CT is associated with elevated stress input. We did not measure the effect of immunity by CT decrease, as the effect would be transient and short-lived. Of the local vs global categories of BE function, the latter function is more relevant with CDT in decreasing bodily stress and maintaining homeostasis (e.g. in pain management, reward effects, and behavioral stability), providing enthusiastic participation and satisfactory post-event emotions and/or behavior in the CD-induced dancing. All in all, CDT induces favorable de-stressing effects, euphoric reliefs, reduction in pain and/or physical handicaps experienced by the elderly participants. These favorable psychological and physiological responses could be explained via relevant objective monitoring of blood indexes (although more endogenous factors need to be monitored), thus advocating the useful effects of CDT.
