Hemohim, a functional food to strengthen the immune system, is creating a worldwide sensation

SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AngelicaGigas– Hemohim acquires remarkable popularity in the global market as Korea’s one of the leading functional foods.

Hemohim was developed through an eight-year collaboration between Kolmar BNH (KOSDAQ: 200130) and the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, with an investment of KRW 5 billion. It was extracted from the raw materials Angelica Gigas, Cnidium Officinale and Paeonia Japonica, which are traditionally used in herbal medicine. Kolmar BNH conducted human testing to confirm the safety and efficacy of its main ingredient, ‘HemoHIM Extract complex of Angelica gigas, etc.’, and was recognized by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of Korea in 2006 for its immune-boosting properties . .

Distributed by Atomy, a customer of Kolmar BNH, Hemohim has sold more than KRW 2 trillion worth of products in just 17 years since its launch, making it the country’s best-selling individually approved functional health food. With strong demand from many countries such as Australia, USA and Thailand, Hemohim has expanded its global presence to more than 20 countries.

After a rigorous review process, Hemohim received approval from the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety as the country’s first individually approved health supplement designed to improve immune function.

Hemohim is the second highest exported product in Korea after red ginseng, and is the most important individually approved functional food ingredient for health. Powered by Hemohim’s success, Kolmar BNH was honored with the ‘200 Million Dollar Export Tower’ during the 2021 ‘Trade Day’ ceremony organized by the Korea International Trade Association.

Kolmar BNH is making R&D efforts to sharpen its material competitive position, as evidenced by the ‘Hemohim Sustaining Technology Development Project’. After six years of efforts, it acquired a fatigue recovery function last year, strengthening Hemohim’s status as a dual functional food with immune enhancement and fatigue recovery.

To further reach the European market, Kolmar has developed BNH HemohimG, tailored to European preferences in terms of taste and aroma. HemohimG is a product made for export that complies with the food regulations of each country. It is now ready for export to Great Britain and Turkey.

An official from Kolmar BNH said: “Hemohim represents Korea’s functional health food, backed by research capabilities and production skills. After its success in Korea over the past 16 years, Hemohim is ready to leave its footprint on the global market.”
