KAUL-Tech is a knowledge aspired venture that originated at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science & Technology (AIST), Japan in 2017. We use AIST technologies and aim to develop unique logistics and technologies for supporting human Quality of Life (QOL) under normal, stressed and diseased circumstances. We are inspired by our research results on the understanding of stress and disease mechanisms, and the interventional effects of several herbs and their active components on stress, aging, cancer and neurodegeneration. More than 30 years of research on molecular mechanisms of these ailments, and more than 20 years of research merging the traditional knowledge and modern technologies have selected Ashwagandha as a champion herb for supporting human health and QOL in the scenarios of environmental stresses, increasing old age societies and old age-associated pathologies including cancers and brain dysfunctions (memory, insomnia and cognitive functions). Propolis, Soyasapogenol, Fucoxanthin are the other leads that KAUL-Tech has selected for its research and product development in collaboration with leading institutions worldwide.
KAUL-Tech is committed to produce premium brands of Ashwagandha and other selected herbs, their extracts enriched with active ingredients for various purposes including cancer medicine, functional food and cosmetics.
Based on ~20 years of research findings, KAUL-Tech has established cultivation KNOW-HOWs producing Active Ingredient Enriched (AIE) Ashwagandha for its use in cancer treatment, stress management and several other benefits of health, and enhancing QOL in normal, stressed and diseased states including Covid-19. KAUL-Tech also owns technologies for making bioactive therapeutic extracts.
Propolis, also known as bee glue or bee wax, is produced by honeybees by mixing their saliva with the botanical materials they live on or visit. The term propolis is derived from the Greek words “Pro” meaning ‘in front of’ or ‘at the entrance to’, and “Polis” meaning ‘community’ or ‘city’; and it describes the substances used to make and defend the hive. It has been extensively used in traditional home-medicine and healthcare since ancient times and has been listed as an official drug in London pharmacopeias of the 17th century. Several research labs have investigated bioactive constituents of propolis and have defined a wide range of their bioactivities. These include antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective and anticancer. Recent research evidence to the mechanisms of action of these activities has promoted its use as nutritional, cosmetic and pharmaceutical substance. It is constantly marketed in Japan with sales exceeding US$300 million/year.The quality and composition of propolis depends on its geographic location, climatic zone and local flora. The New Zealand and Brazilian green propolis are the two main kinds that have been extensively studied in recent years. Some unfavorable characteristics of propolis include high viscosity, pungent taste, poor solubility in water, sensitivity to light and heat because of high polyphenol content, and low bioavailability. Furthermore, Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), a major bioactive in New Zealand propolis, has been reported to be heat-sensitive and easily degradable. Such sensitive compounds can be protected by coating of sugar such as gamma cyclodextrin. Several research studies have reported enhanced anticancer, neurogeneration and memory enhancing functions of gamma-CD coated CAPE. Based on these, premium brands of propolis containing standard amount of active ingredient with high stability and edibility are required to make best of its health-promoting and therapeutic potentials. In the current pandemic, several research studies have documented the usefulness of propolis as a valuable natural amalgam for management of Covid-19. In view of these benefits, KAUL-Tech aims to generate and market premium brands of propolis for global health supplements and cosmetic products. We also aim to develop unique combinations of specific natural resources for the benefit of mankind.
