3. Kuniyoshi Shimizu, Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS)
concept for the better future: How to utilize natural
products as the valuable products-Medicine,
Functional Food, Aroma, Woody house-, CONFERENCE SCHEDULE OF ICRACOS 2019 “Research and Its Application to Meet The Industrial Era 4.0.“, 2019.09, Our research group has been focusing on how to
utilize natural products based on LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health
and Sustainability) concept with relevant scientific evidence.
Research fields include as follows. 1) Natural Medicines, 2)
Natural Cosmetics, 3) Natural functional foods, 4) Natural
aroma, 5) Natural dwelling space. Following topics will be
discussed. 1. How to utilize medicinal mushroom such as
Ganoderma lingzhi for curing benign prostate hyperplasia.
2. How to utilize the by-product in Olive oil production. 3.
How to utilize the aroma such as essential oil
prepared from the leaves of Abies sibiricaa or laurel (Laurus
nobilis) leaves itself. 4. How to utilize the wood as living
materials, such as the wooden dwelling spaces using naturally
processed sugi (Cryptomeria japonica) wood boards

In Japan, almost all common rush is produced in Kumamoto prefecture. But recently the import of tatami is markedly increasing and also Tatami made of paper is increasing. This cause the reduction of tatami farm family and it is possible it will disappear soon. One reason is that classical Japanese house which containing tatami room is decreasing and Western type house which do not have Tatami room is increasing. Generally people say that Tatami room have good effects on humans, but the scientific data is lacking. Previously our group showed that common rush has relaxation effects on human during daytime. In this project, we examined the effects of dried common rush on human sleep during night time. Ten young males and ten young females were attended as the subjects. We used two condition. One is that placebo Tatami (made of paper) was set in the sleeping room and the other is that Tatami was set. The subjects came to the sleeping room around 9:30 pm and some questionnaires were performed until 11:00 pm. The room right was turned off at 11:00 pm and EEG, ECG, and the movement during the sleep were measured. At 7:00 am the room right was turned on and some questionnaires were performed again. The data was analyzed depends on the group and compared in two groups. As for the psychological aspect, negative mood was significantly improved in Tatami group which is assessed by POMS2 test. In physiological aspects, sleep efficiency assessed by body movement was significantly increased in Tatami group. This is one-night short time experiments, therefore long-term experiments were needed to confirm the effects of Tatami..
