Perilla is being used as a Chinese medicine and folk medicine since a long time. It was known to have an anti-bacterial action and alleviate the symptoms of asthma.
Amino Up Chemical Co. Ltd., had directed its attention to the anti-allergic effects of perilla leaves and developed this product jointly with Teikyo University, Department of Pharmacy. Perilla extract acts to regularize the excessive balance of the immune system.
Perilla extract controls the production of the substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) and adjusts the immune system. It works towards relieving inflammation and allergies such as atopy. Though TNF is an indispensable substance for the living body, its continuous and excessive production causes various disorders such as tissue disorders and inflammations. Perilla extract suppresses the excessive TNF and restores it to the normal condition. Moreover, there are no side effects even if used regularly.
