According to the Asahi Shimbun report, Japanese studies have found that the acid-fastening substances extracted from plums can inhibit the activity of Helicobacter pylori that causes gastric ulcer.
The research team led by Professor Utsunomiya Kazuo of Wakayama Prefectural Medical University in Japan added lignans extracted from plums to the culture of Helicobacter pylori. The results showed that H. pylori was deformed and the infectivity decreased. It is said that lignans equivalent to one or two prunes have antibacterial effects, and studies have shown that lignans also have an inhibitory effect on influenza viruses. Professor Takashi Takahiko, a professor of physical engineering at the University of Kinki, Japan, also found that the hydroxycinnamic acid contained in plums also has the effect of preventing hypertension and inhibiting virus reproduction.
Yudu Gongyang suggested that when Meizi is listed, it may be appropriate to eat some health care. Usually, plums can be used instead, but since plum products generally have high salt content, eating two foods a day can meet the health care needs.
