Kakishibu has been used for a long time in the everyday life of Japanese people, however, it has recently rarely been mentioned. Among the younger generations in particular it may be unknown.
Kakishibu is, as its name suggests, the tannin contained in persimmon fruits. The tannin is mostly found when the fruit is unripe. Kakishibu is made by fermenting and aging the juice of the best quality unripe astringent persimmon.
Kakishibu was used widely until not so long ago, as a necessary part of Japanese life. For instance, it was used for water proofing, strengthening materials such as fishing nets, fishing boats, tubs, rice chests, umbrellas, Japanese papers, fans, ceiling boards and undercoating of lacquer wares etc.
Medically Kakishibu was used as a remedy for treating minor burns and skin irritations.
As Kakishibu was found to have the ability to control bleeding, it started to be used as a remedy for internal bleedings such as hematemesises and bloody faeces.
It was also used for preventing and recovering from apoplexy.
Kakishibu contains ten times more polyphenol than red wine.
Additional nutrients such as vitamins, dietary fibres and minerals are abundantly in Kakishibu. Polyphenol which is also found in red wine is of recent interest for healthy living.
Polyphenol is a substance made out of saccharide resulting from photosynthesis. It has a strong antioxidative effect, which helps to maintain a healthy body.
Kakishibu polyphenol contains tannin, catechin, flavonoid and antoshianin etc. 100g of Kakishibu contains 3500mg of polyphenol, whereas green tea has 230mg and red wine has 300mg. Kakishibu is rich in polyphenol and has ten times more than red wine.
Let us explain how the polyphenol of Kakishibu containing tanning works for our health.
Kakishibu polyphenol cleans blood and lowers blood pressure.
Blood and the blood vessels are important to for our health. There is a saying gDisease originates from the blood and we age in the blood vessels.h
The increase of bad cholesterol and lipid peroxide causes the inner walls of the blood vessels to thicken and blood vessels to narrow, resulting in higher blood pressure and eventually arteriscierosis and apoplexy. The tannin contained in kakishibu polyphenol decreases bad cholesterol in blood and suppress lipid in the blood changing into lipid peroxide with active oxygen.
When blood flows easily, it nourishes and spreads oxygen quickly to the extremity of the body and removes waste matters more efficiently. A better metabolism promotes better health. It is possible to lower blood pressure by improving blood flow.
Researchers at the University of Tohoku carried out clinical studies, which verified that Kakishibu lowers blood pressure. They had noticed that Kakishibu has been used as a remedy for high blood pressure and brain haemorrhage sequeiae in the Tohoku region of Japan.
Benefits of taking Kakishibu after the apoplexy are described by many users. For instance;
A man of 70 in Hyogo Prefecture recovered within six months by taking Kakishibu three times a day after becoming a hemiplegics caused by apoplexy.
Kakishibufs antioxidative quality controls the active oxygen.
It was said for a long time that the fundamental causes of the lifestyle diseases and many other sickness are caused by active oxygen.

It is widely recognized that high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis and cancer etc. are caused by this active oxygen and it accelerates the aging of internal organs.
Kakishibu polyphenol has an antioxidative quality which removes the active oxygen and prevents lifestyle diseases, cancerization of cells and protects the body from diseases by promoting the normal functioning of internal organs.
