Taka Update May 2, 2012

 Taka Update May 2, 2012

 Fish delivery and more

I have great news again. Excellent tuna is coming today. This is big eye tuna.  I ordered back side this time because could not sell Oh-toro at all. I also asked them kama, collar. This part is premium and 4 orders only. I will update the pictures on my blog later.
Blue Shrimp is has problem. FDA is holding and out of stock. They inspect not only fresh fish but frozen items.

Uni is fine. I think we have enough inventories for next 2 days.
Japanese fish has some problem. It is Golden Week in Japan. Some people take vacations from April 29th to May 6th. Believe or not, this is the only chance to take a long vacation for workaholic Japanese.

Anyway, Hotaru Ika and Mahata are not available this week. And Thursday delivery is not available.


Weight Control and Golf

I did not lose weight much. It is flat and 169.95 lbs. Our business is very god in April and I was lazy.

My golf was not lazy. I won a small tournament last Sunday. My score was just 92 but I was just lucky.

 Chili peppers could lower cholesterol: the heat can boost the health: study
A new study suggests that the compound that gives chili peppers their heat could have the ability to lower cholesterol and boost heart health.

After putting mice on a high cholesterol diet and adding varying degrees of capsaicinoids - the active compound in chili peppers -- a team of Chinese researchers found that the dietary additions resulted in lower total cholesterol levels compared to control groups in the study, reported NutraIngredients.com in Friday.
The study was published in the European Journal of Nutrition.
The chili compounds were also associated with decreased levels of inflammation, also a precursor for heart-related diseases.
While the addition of capsaicinoids reduced total cholesterol, triglycerides (a form of fat) and non-HDL cholesterol levels (or ‘bad' cholesterol) levels, the effects of chili pepper compounds were not related to a specific dose.
To date, no such research has been carried out in humans.
The latest research builds on previous studies which have shown that spices can do everything from curb appetites to help cancel out the unhealthy effects of a fatty meal.
In one Spanish study, scientists found that cloves had the highest antioxidant capacity over sage, rosemary, thyme, and oregano.
