Effects of Peony Extract Complex (HT074)
1. Improves discomfort and burning sensation in the upper abdomen
2. Anti-ulcer
3. Increases gastric mucus secretion

Hello, I am Jinny, a pharmacist.

There are probably quite a lot of people who feel pain near the solar plexus after eating. Indigestion, whose main symptoms include pain in the solar plexus and burning sensation, can be divided into functional indigestion without a specific cause and organic indigestion with a specific cause. Among these, one of the main causes of organic dyspepsia caused by specific causes is peptic ulcer caused by damage to the stomach mucosa.

The gastric mucosa maintains its own health in order to protect gastric cells from highly acidic gastric juice of pH 2 or lower, but is damaged by various factors such as taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen, stress, and alcohol consumption. In fact, in 2012, the Korean Upper Gastrointestinal-Helicobacter Society surveyed 25,536 people who underwent gastroscopy at 40 hospitals nationwide and found that 85.9% had gastritis.

The functional raw material that we will introduce today, peony extract complex (HT074), is an ingredient that has been recognized for its functionality of 'protecting the stomach mucosa and helping stomach health.' Let’s find out how it can improve our stomach health through research papers.

1. Improves Discomfort and Burning Sensation in the Upper Abdomen

Damage to the stomach mucosa can lead to gastritis and peptic ulcers, and these diseases cause indigestion or stomach discomfort, so protecting the stomach mucosa is very important in maintaining stomach health. However, more than these health benefits, you tend to look for ingredients that are good for your stomach because you want to escape the pain.

As a result of a human application test targeting adult men and women with moderate to severe upper abdominal heartburn symptoms, it was confirmed that ingestion of peony extract complex (HT074) improved upper abdominal discomfort and burning sensation.

"As a result of ingesting peony extract complex (HT074) (700 mg/day) for 8 weeks, 'burning chest pain' in the Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS) was significantly reduced compared to the control group, and the indigestion evaluation index ( In NDI-K), ‘upper abdominal discomfort’ was significantly reduced compared to the control group.”

2. Anti-ulcer

As mentioned earlier, there are various factors that cause gastric mucosal damage and ulcers in our daily lives. Representative examples include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen, alcohol consumption, and stress. Of course, Helicobacter pylori is also a very important ulcer-causing factor.

Naturally, academic interest has emerged as to whether peony extract complex (HT074) can protect stomach health from these ulcer-causing factors. Research reports have shown that ingestion of peony extract complex (HT074) protects stomach against these ulcer-causing factors.

“The current study results show that HT074 exerts gastroprotective effects against ulcer-causing agents, including alcohol, stress and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).”

3. Increases Gastric Mucus Secretion

Have you ever heard of eating ground yam on an empty stomach if you feel upset? This is because the slimy substance that comes out when you grind yam is mucin, which is similar to the mucus that protects the stomach mucosa. The mucus secreted from the stomach plays an important role in protecting the stomach mucosa, to the point that there are folk remedies like this. When interpreting actual research results, ‘the amount of mucus secretion within the stomach tissue’ is an important measure.

According to research results, consumption of peony extract complex (HT074) appears to contribute to protecting the gastric mucosa by increasing gastric mucus secretion.

“Our findings suggest that this ingredient has gastroprotective effects against gastric lesions and that it exerts these effects by increasing levels of antioxidants and gastric mucus secretion.”

Today, we learned about a complex of peony extracts (HT074), a functional raw material that can help stomach health by protecting the stomach mucosa. Our stomach mucosa is vulnerable to daily risk factors such as stress and alcohol consumption, so it would be better to gradually reduce the risk factors in our daily lives through consistent management through functional ingredients.

I hope you have a healthy day both physically and mentally. This was Jinny.
