NEW YORK – October 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

TABLE FOR TWO USA (TFT) invites everyone to participate in their 8th Annual ONIGIRI ACTION campaign to provide 1 million school meals to children around the world from Thursday, Oct. 6 to Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022. During the campaign, through the generosity of partner organizations (see below), every rice ball-related post on the campaign website or social media with #OnigiriAction will provide five school meals to children in need. TFT will enhance school meals in socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods in the U.S. by adding fresh vegetables and fruits as well as provide school meals to children in East Africa.

The ONIGIRI ACTION campaign commemorates the United Nations’ World Food Day. As a NPO with roots in Japan, the campaign highlights onigiri (rice balls), which are a traditional Japanese comfort food made with love for someone special.

Since its launch in 2015, Onigiri Action has supported 6.8 million school meals. Recently the organization received two prestigious awards: one related to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the other for Health and Culture from the Japanese government (https://bit.ly/3Kg0ZHY). Amid soaring food prices due to COVID-19, climate change and the invasion of Ukraine, there are concerns that “Zero Hunger,” one of the goals of SDGs, will be delayed. The need for TFT to bring healthy meals to those in need is now more important than ever.

2022 USA Campaign Theme: Unite the States with Onigiri 2022! 
TFT and partners will continue to connect everyone through onigiri with many virtual and in-person events. Riding on the successes of last year’s campaign, TFT will continue the “Unite the States with Onigiri” theme this year. TFT encourages all states to post “State-themed onigiri photos” such as a photo with onigiri using local ingredients or onigiri with any State symbol (sports team’s cap, symbolic building like Capitol, state animals etc.). Additionally, we plan to bring together and feature as many onigiri shops as possible in the U.S. to post on the same day about Onigiri Action on their social media channels.

Partner Organizations in the U.S.:
For every onigiri photo posted, five school meals will be donated through the generous support from our partners: J.C.C. Fund/Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York, JFC International/Nishiki, JCAW Foundation, Zojirushi America, San-J, ITOCHU International, SMBC Global Foundation, Misuzu Corporation, MUFG Union Bank, N.A., Zensho Employees Association Network, Mishima Foods U.S.A.
Onigiri partners: BentOn, Onigilly, Sunny Blue, Omusubee, Onigiri Kororin, Obon Shokudo

L-Nutra Reports Fasting-Mimicking Diet Cycles Reduce Cognitive Decline and Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease Models

L-Nutra Reports Fasting-Mimicking Diet Cycles Reduce Cognitive Decline and Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease ModelsLOS ANGELES – October 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

L-Nutra, Inc., the world’s leading nutrition technology company pioneering the discovery, design, and commercialization of novel nutrition solutions, today announced data in Cell Reports demonstrating the effects of fasting-mimicking diets (FMD) in animal models of Alzheimer’s disease and early human safety data. The study reports that FMD cycles reduce cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease pathology in mouse models. The early clinical data also suggest that FMD cycles are safe and feasible in a small group of Alzheimer’s patients. 

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive memory loss and a decline in quality of life and lifespan. An estimated 6.5 million Americans aged 65 and older live with Alzheimer’s dementia, and approximately 200,000 under age 65 have early-onset Alzheimer’s. The number of people affected globally by dementia is expected to increase to 152.8 million cases in 2050, primarily due to population aging. FDA-approved drugs for Alzheimer’s only temporarily improve or slow the deterioration of Alzheimer’s symptoms but do not generally affect disease progression. 

“L-Nutra is the world’s pioneering Nutri-Technology company bringing the revolutionary Fasting-Mimicking Technology (FMT) to transform the paradigm of care in four major chronic illnesses: cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and Alzheimer’s. With this published result, our FMT platform takes another bold step towards turning ‘food into medicine.’ Leveraging the rigor of the biotech industry, we are the leading nutrition company to have a nutrition solution with the potential to impact human longevity and the course of many chronic health conditions,” said Joseph Antoun, M.D., Ph.D., CEO and Chairman of L-Nutra, Inc. 

In this newly published paper, the lead author Professor Valter Longo at USC and investigators from other centers* show that cycles of FMT attenuate cognitive decline, reduce Alzheimer’s pathology and neuroinflammation, and promote neurogenesis and improve cognition in Alzheimer’s mouse models. In a pilot human trial included in the publication, the authors also show that the intervention is safe and feasible in a small group of Alzheimer’s patients.

“The patented FMT in previously published studies demonstrated a clear mechanism of action, supported by successful early human trials that showed safety and efficacy in diabetes and various forms of cancer. This exciting result in a neurodegenerative condition extends the finding that the FMT platform as a unique solution has an upstream and overarching systemic impact on the body,” said Dr. William Hsu, MD, Chief Medical Officer of L-Nutra, Inc. 

L-Nutra plans to evaluate further its FMT platform’s impact on driving various chronic conditions into remission or regression.
