Japan Marche Staff Blog: Feeling Good, Looking Great

“It was introduced on TV recently in Japan that cocoa ginger helps your swelled up intestine and reduces the bulging stomach.”

Couch potato winter is here. You refuse to go outside simply because it’s colder out there than in here. Perhaps you have movies and dramas to watch with popcorn, pizza, whatever you want to eat with you in front of your TV. Yes, blissful as it is, your stomach keeps growing. That’s when cocoa ginger comes to rescue.

It was introduced on TV recently in Japan that cocoa ginger helps your swelled up intestine and reduces the bulging stomach. Water accumulates within the intestine and blood flow is stalled. Ginger lets your blood flow better and veins are widened by cocoa. All you have to do is add 5g of cocoa and ginger each into 200ml of hot water. Cocoa is pure cocoa powder, so the kind you use for making hot chocolate is not what is intended here, unfortunately. Cocoa ginger is bitter, so perhaps adding honey to sweeten up the bitter taste may be an option. The suggested daily amount is to drink 200ml twice a day, morning and evening before meals.

A staff at Japan Marche tried ginger cocoa. Because she didn’t actually try measuring her stomach, she isn’t sure whether it helped to reduce her stomach size, but her stomach felt warm and felt that her whole body was awake. Ginger is a winter ingredient known to help warm the body in Japan. Because many Japanese women suffer from cold hands and feet, ginger is a popular ingredient available in typical homes. Just by adding cocoa to daily ginger drinks, we can have a slimmer stomach. Kill two birds with one stone!
