Our Shima Okinawa Story

As a workaholic in the hospitality industry for the past 20 years, I had always placed my professional success above my personal health and well-being. It wasn't until I had the opportunity to spend some time in beautiful Okinawa and meet Dr. Zach Bell that I began to realize the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Through our conversations, I quickly became fascinated by Dr. Bell's innovative SEED-TECHNOLOGY, which led to the creation of Shima Okinawa and our flagship product, Protein Ramuné. We are proud to say that Protein Ramuné is one of the most complex plant-based formulas processed through SEED-TECHNOLOGY, containing soy protein, over 15 kinds of vitamins and minerals, actual fruit flakes, and four different types of superfoods. Dr. Bell's technology is revolutionary and provides a hassle-free alternative to powdered supplements. At the heart of our mission is the desire to make healthy living accessible and convenient for everyone. As a consumer myself, I understand the challenges of incorporating powdered supplements into daily routines. A large container of protein powder can be intimidating, and preparing protein or pre-workout shakes can be messy and tedious. We set out to solve this problem with Protein Ramuné, a convenient and delicious way to support a healthy lifestyle. Our team is driven by a high-performance culture that makes science an integral part of everything we do. We're proud to be part of such an innovative and talented team, and we're confident that the future will be effervescent for Shima Okinawa!

The Visionary Scientist

Dr. Zach Bell, PhD is co-founder and Representative Director of Shima & Co. K.K. Dr Bell received a PhD from Queen Mary University of London in the area of molecular neuroscience. He has over 20 years of weight training and performance supplement use and his current research focuses on cognitive performance enhancement and supplements that promote physical & mental health, and he aims to bridge the gap between academic biomedical science and the performance supplement industry to stimulate innovation and product development. Dr. Bell's dedication to the performance supplement industry led him to invent SEED-TECHNOLOGY, a world-first process for converting bulk supplement powders into hard materials that dissolve effortlessly in water. The traditional preparation process for consuming supplement powders has always been inconvenient, with inconsistent portion sizes, poor solubility, and often being too messy. However, with SEED-TECHNOLOGY, Dr. Bell and his team of scientists have produced a hassle and mess-free solution that allows for easy dosing, high solubility, and space-saving convenience. This new delivery method for consuming protein and other macro & micro nutrients together is set to revolutionize the industry, and we're excited to be at the forefront of this exciting new technology.
