This is Jinny, the pharmacist. 

Even if you don't have any other disease, you must have experienced suffering from stomachache at least once. Alcohol and cigarettes, anti-inflammatory painkillers, harmful bacteria, spicy and salty food, stress, and even stomach acid and bile from our bodies, there are countless factors that threaten stomach health in our lives. 


Therefore, today, I would like to introduce 'Honeysuckle Flower Bud Extract' to relieve stomach health concerns that are afflicted with various threats every day . 'Honeysuckle flower bud extract' is also an individually approved functional raw material that has been recognized by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety for its functionality of 'protecting the gastric mucosa and helping stomach health' .

Let's look at the efficacy of 'honeysuckle flower bud extract' that has been proven through research.

1. Improvement of gastrointestinal symptoms

Since ancient times, honeysuckle flower buds have been regarded as precious medicinal materials, and <Bonchogangmok> states that they are used to treat dysentery or skin diseases. Based on these records, modern academics have begun to pay attention to the effect of honeysuckle flower buds on the function of the gastrointestinal tract.


In 2020, a study on the effect and safety of honeysuckle flower bud extract on functional dyspepsia was published in the domestic journal Gut and Liver .
" In this study, it was confirmed that the total score of GSRS (Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale) and GI (gastrointestinal) symptoms improved after 8 weeks of administration of GCWB104 (honeysuckle flower bud extract). "

2. Improving DNA damage markers
In the study introduced earlier, the effect of steady intake of honeysuckle flower bud extract on the gastrointestinal tract as well as the effect on DNA damage-related indicators was also analyzed.
" In the biomarker analysis of antioxidant substances, the concentration of 8-OHd in the blood of the test group decreased significantly compared to the control group. 8-OHd, which can be measured in blood (serum) and urine, is a representative biomarker of oxidative DNA damage. "Elevated levels of 8-OHd are known to be associated with DNA mutations and increased risk of cancer. "

3. Anti-inflammatory

As such, before its effect on improving gastrointestinal symptoms was proven, honeysuckle flower bud extract drew attention from the academic world, focusing on studies on the development of natural anti-inflammatory substances .


In 2015, a study was published in JOURNAL OF MEDICINAL FOOD on the effect of honeysuckle buds on the inflammatory response .
" In summary, the results presented in this study confirm the potential anti-inflammatory effect of LJ (honeysuckle bud) on BV-2 microglia. "

Today, we learned about honeysuckle flower bud extract, a stomach health material that has been verified by the academic world. If you have concerns about stomach health, in addition to steady management through functional ingredients such as honeysuckle flower bud extract and peony extract complex (HT074), it is recommended to reduce spicy, salty, or oily foods that can irritate the stomach mucosa as much as possible.

In addition, honeysuckle flower bud extract is generally known to be safe, but it is recommended that infants, pregnant and lactating women, or those with certain diseases consume it after consulting with a specialist .

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