Mineral Enriched Beverage
The digestive organ laboratory under the Clinical Institute of the Pyongyang Medical College of
The researchers of the laboratory paid special attention to the development of medicines suited to the constitutional peculiarity of the Koreans. In the course of studying into over ten kinds of wastes from ore dressing they found out substances good to the human body. Through scores of relevant experiments and tests they succeeded in developing “Natural Active Combined Mineral Matter H (for man)” which can be used as a material for mineral enriched beverage.
The researchers made liquid medicine of the material. The clinical test of the medicine showed that it enhances activity of digestion and protein synthetase, stimulates appetite and accelerates digestion and absorption. They intensified the study and confirmed again that the mineral matter has many advantages as a medicinal material.
The natural active combined mineral matter helps children grow tall, improves physical strength and energy and rapidly relieves fatigue. It also can prevent obesity, retard the aging process and improve complexion by reducing subcutaneous fat, thus being recognized as effective for beauty. And it is conducive to the prevention and treatment of the diseases relating to immune, digestive, circulatory, respiratory, urinary, cerebral nerve, endocrine, sensory and motor systems as it enhances physiological functions as vitamins do. Now the medicine is popular with relevant patients and all other users.
Besides, the researchers focused on kelp from the East Sea of Korea while intensifying studies into marine products from the West and East seas of Korea. It was already confirmed that kelp contains over 50 sorts of nutritive and medicinal substances. So they established a system of treating gastric and duodenal ulcer using the seaweed. And they developed a dozen kinds of medicines including kelp granule, kelp tablet for ulcer, kelp compound ulcer acid, kelp tea and kelp pill.
Ri Song Hwa, a resident in Neighbourhood Unit 49, Kwanmun-dong No. 1, Rangnang District, Pyongyang, says, “As I suffered from a stomach trouble, I could not go to work regularly for two years. I stayed in the digestive organ laboratory under the Clinical Institute to get treatment for over 20 days. Thus I was completely cured of not only the disease but also liver and pancreas troubles I had not known about.”
Director of the laboratory Ri Yong Un says, “Many patients have recovered from their diseases at my laboratory. At first they entered it with anxiety, but they left it with a smile—it makes us feel happy. They send letters of thanks to us.”
Now the researchers are engrossed in other research projects in order to perform their responsibility for the people’s health.
