Kikkoman, Tohoku University Confirm That Tomato Extract Helps Heal Atopic Dermatitis.
The joint research compared two groups of mice: one that had been given tomato extract and the other, naringenin chalcone (NGC), a kind of polyphenol found in tomato peels. Both groups showed favorable results, and symptoms of atopic dermatitis improved. In particular, the administration of NGC inhibited the rise of serum IgE, an indicator of allergy.
Details of the research will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Agrochemistry 2006, to be held in Kyoto from March 25.
