[Efficacy of Peony Extract Complex (HT074)] Special effect on heartburn? 3 effects of peony extract

Peony extract and other complexes protect the gastric mucosa.

Efficacy of peony extract and other complex fire (HT074)
1. Improves epigastric discomfort and burning sensation
2. Anti-ulcer
3. Increases gastric mucus secretion

This is Jinny, the pharmacist.

There must be quite a few people who feel pain in the stomach area after eating. Indigestion, which has epigastric pain and burning sensation as its main symptoms, can be divided into functional indigestion without a specific cause and organic indigestion with a specific cause. One of the main causes of organic indigestion caused by specific causes is peptic ulcer caused by damage to the gastric mucosa.

Although the gastric mucosa maintains its own health to protect gastric cells from gastric juice with a pH of less than 2, it is damaged by various factors such as taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen, stress, and alcohol intake. can be. In fact, in 2012, the Korean Upper Gastrointestinal-Helicobacter Society investigated 25,536 people who underwent gastroscopy at 40 hospitals across the country , and found that 85.9% had gastritis .

The functional raw material to be introduced today, such as peony extract complex (HT074) , is an ingredient that has been recognized for its functionality of 'protecting the gastric mucosa and helping stomach health'. Let's see if we can help.

1.  Improvement of upper abdominal discomfort and burning sensation

Gastric mucosal damage can develop into gastritis and peptic ulcer, and these diseases cause indigestion or stomach discomfort, so protecting the gastric mucosa is very important in maintaining stomach health. However, more than these health benefits, you will find ingredients that are good for your stomach because you want to get away from the pain that feels boring.

As a result of a human application test targeting adult men and women with moderate or higher epigastric heartburn symptoms, it was confirmed that intake of peony extract and other complex (HT074) improved epigastric discomfort and burning sensation .

" As a result of ingesting peony extract and other complexes (HT074) (700 mg/day) for 8 weeks, 'burning pain in the chest' was significantly reduced compared to the control group in the gastrointestinal symptom rating scale (GSRS), and the dyspepsia evaluation index ( NDI-K), 'Epigastric discomfort' was significantly reduced compared to the control group."

2. Anti-ulcer

As mentioned earlier, various gastric mucosal damage-ulcer-inducing factors exist in our daily lives. Typical examples include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen, alcohol consumption, and stress. Of course, Helicobacter pylori is also one of the most important ulcer-causing factors.

Of course, the interest of the academic community has emerged as to whether the peony extract etc. complex (HT074) can protect gastric health from these ulcer-inducing factors. It has been confirmed that it protects the stomach .

" The results of the current study show that HT074 exhibits gastroprotective effects against ulcer-inducing factors including alcohol, stress and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). "

3. Increases gastric mucus secretion

Have you heard the story of eating yam on an empty stomach if your stomach is sore? This is because the mucus that comes out slippery when dried is called 'mucin', the same as mucus that protects the gastric mucosa. Even when interpreting actual research results, 'the amount of secretion of mucus in the gastric tissue' is an important measure.

According to the study results, intake of peony extract and other complexes (HT074) has been shown to contribute to the protection of the gastric mucosa by increasing the secretion of gastric mucus.

“ Our findings suggest that this ingredient has a gastroprotective effect against gastric lesions, and exerts this effect by increasing the levels of antioxidants and secretion of gastric mucus. ”

Today, we learned about a complex (HT074), such as peony extract, a functional raw material that can help stomach health through the protection of the gastric mucosa. Our gastric mucosa, which is vulnerable to daily risk factors such as stress or alcohol intake, would be better if we reduce the risk factors in our daily life little by little along with steady management through functional ingredients.

I hope you have a healthy day in body and mind. It was Jinny.
