Manda Koso, also known as Man Koso, Dr. Xeniji, or M-K Europa, is a highly concentrated enzymatic supplement from Japan where it is considered to be "functional food". It is a sweet fermented brown paste made of more than 50 natural ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, sea vegetables, grains, honey, and herbs, that were exposed to a slow, elaborate fermentation process for 3-5 years. No water or chemical catalysts are used to speed the fermentation process. Fermentation occurs spontaneously at low temperatures and is based on the natural activity of lactobacillus, brown muscovado sugar from Okinawa, and brewer's yeast.
The original Manda Koso was developed by Dr. Shingoro Matsuura who initially created it for pregnant women to nourish and support the growth and development of the fetus. Dr. Matsuura wished to utilize the energy and the nutrients of the plants for the benefits of humans. He wished to restore vitality and enhance health in elderly and healthy grow in the young.
Fruit and vegetable
Dr. Matsuura holds a degree in breeding and fermentation from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and is a pioneer in his domain. He devoted more than 30 years of his life to the research of the biochemical mechanisms underlying fermentation processes and the development of a perfect broad spectrum catalyst. He established his fermentation plant in Innoshima, Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. The facility produces about 70,000 145 gram jars of the product a month. A 145 gram jar is considered to last for four to six weeks.
Health Benefits of Manda Koso

- Increases energy level
- Prevents growth of cancerous cells in the body
Fermentation is a process known to humans for more than 10,000 years, in which the original substance undergoes biochemical changes under the influence of yeasts or other microorganisms without the presence of oxygen. The fermentation process enhances the enzymatic activity and makes many substance bio-available to the human body. Fermented foods are part of the Japanese culture since ancient times. This process was refined and perfected over the ages. Using ancient knowledge and his modern innovations, Dr. Matsuura devised a 4-stage production process which mimics the processes of digestion and fermentation in the human body. The longer the process the more valuable and bio-available the product. The enzymatically processed plant matter contains nutrients that are easily absorbed by the cells of the body.
Fermentation facility in Japan
Manda Koso comes in three grades:
- Manda Koso that was fermented for 39 months
- Manda Hi Koso that was fermented for more than 48 months
- Manda Koso Gold that was fermented for more than 60 months
- Manda Slim supports healthy weight loss and digestion
Manda Koso contains substantial amounts of Vitamin K, Iodine, and Potassium. Because of its high amino acid and enzyme content Manda Koso is very beneficial to health and overall well being. It has a very strong antioxidant activity and helps the body to balance the pH naturally. It supplies the body with energy and helps to activate the immune system. It is often used by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy as it has the capacity to detoxify the body. Manda Koso Gold is used in alternative cancer therapies all over the world. Dr. Matsuura makes no claims that his product cures cancer. What it most certainly does is the activation of body's own disease fighting mechanisms. An ongoing research shows that Manda Koso has the ability to shrink the breast cancer tumors in vitro. It decreases the beta-galactosidase activity and enhances apoptosis of the cancer cells. It also has the exceptional capacity to boost the activity of the NK cells that engage in battle against cancerous cells in the body.
Manda Koso is safe and nutritious, but rather expensive, although the price is justified by the elaborate production process and the quality of ingredients used. In Japan it is also used in husbandry to improve the healthy growth of plants and animals.
