Nutritional T-Shirts are the latest rave among Japanese fabric and clothing manufacturers and they are competing fiercely in this brand new field reported The Japan Times. These T-shirts and other clothings contain nutritive substances including amino acids, vitamins, xylitol and food additives are attracting the spotlight in Japan. Though containing these substances these clothings are definitely not for eating but for wearing. Clothings containing such supplements theoretically help to maintain the pH balance in skin or give the person wearing them cool comfort after perspiring. According to a Mizuno public relations department official, when someone perspires and the nutritional add-ons enhance the ability of the material to absorb moisture and help keep the skin's pH level balanced. Apart from Mizuno, Ajinomoto (famous for its MSG) is also involved in these clothing industry, it jointly developed the clothing material Amino Veil last year by combing an amino acid into fabric Jeans maker Teijin Wow Co. of Osaka has also its own jean fabric with incorporated amino acids. Major sportswear maker Yonex Co. began marketing its Very COOL brand of clothing, which incorporates xylitol, last year. It said the clothing is at its best when worn by people playing sports in the sun or for a long time. Xylitol, which one finds in chewing gum and candy, absorbs heat when it comes into contact with water resulting in its cooling effects. How do you wash these clothings, apparently the nutrional supplements are in stable forms which prevent them from dissolving when washed! Research is going onto add more to clothings and these include such ingredients as caffeine and seaweed essence. The manufacturers caution that wearing this sort of clothing is not an alternative to nutrition in food taken the usual way. Who knows in future we may be able to have our Starbuck while on the go via the T-shirt that we wear!
