An immunobiotic ingredient ''Immuno-LP20'' is newly launched!

Heat-killed Lactobacillus plantarum​ L-137 (HK L-137), an “Immunobiotic” ingredient, boosts cellular immunity and shows anti-allergic, anti-tumor, or anti-flu effects in mice model.

Researches published in “The Journal of Nutrition​” and “Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology​” demonstrate that intake of HK L-137 increased Th1/Th2 balance and T cell proliferation which are index of cellular immunity and induced interferon-β, an anti-viral cytokine, in humans. A current clinical study indicates that intake of HK L-137 decreased the incidence of the common cold in healthy subjects with severe psychological stress.
