Jakarta, July 1, 2020, PT Kalbe Farma Tbk (Kalbe) through the Kalbe Consumer Health division with the Health & Happiness (H2) product Cordyceps militaris held health education to strengthen the body's immunity with the theme “Resilience in Facing the New Normal. ” This theme was raised to further optimize the awareness of the Indonesian people to remain vigilant of COVID-19. The health education presented guest speakers Prof. Widodo, S.Sc., S.Sc., Ph.D. Med.Sc., as a Professor of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and Biomolecular Experts of Brawijaya University, Malang; and dr. Moh. Adib Khumaidi, SpOT, Chairperson of the Indonesian Emergency Doctors Association/PDEI; as well as dr. Helmin Agustina Silalahi, Medical Manager of the Kalbe Consumer Health Division of PT Kalbe Farma Tbk.
“Kalbe is committed to supporting the government in tackling COVID-19 in the new normal era through herbal medicine innovations to help strengthen the immune system,” said Dr. Helmin Agustina Silalahi, Kalbe Consumer Health Medical Manager of PT Kalbe Farma Tbk. ”Through the Cordyceps militaris H2 product, we are innovating for mushroom cultivation using the tissue culture methods. Furthermore, we have also cooperated with various parties to continue to capture the efficacy and safety data of H2 Cordyceps militaris products,” continued dr. Helmin.
“In this new normal era, there are still many people who do not realize that the threat of contracting the COVID-19 virus still exists, this is because they neglect the implementation of the health protocols. In addition, the awareness to strengthen oneself by increasing one's immunity is also still fairly low,” said dr. Moh. Adib Khumaidi, SpOT, Chair of the Indonesian Emergency Doctors Association (PDEI). ”We must ensure that our immune system is strong before we leave the house, by consuming nutritious food, exercising regularly, getting enough rest, and – if needed – to consume immunity-supporting supplements,” continued Dr. Adib.
“In my study, the Cordyceps militaris mushroom is one of the best natural ingredients to strengthen the body's immunity because it contains cordycepin, adenosine, and polysaccharides,” said Prof. Widodo, S.Sc., S.Sc., Ph.D. Med.Sc., Professor of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and Bio-molecular Expert of Brawijaya University, Malang. ”These three ingredients make for the complete package that gave Cordyceps militaris the potential as an antiviral and to increase the stamina of COVID-19 patients,” added Prof. Widodo.
“At present, we have also cooperated with various parties to continue to capture the efficacy and safety data of H2 Cordyceps militaris products. In addition to empirical evidence and research conducted on Cordyceps overseas, we have also carried out pre-clinical and safety tests of the Cordyceps militaris H2 product with universities in Surabaya, and Bioinformatics analysis with Prof. Widodo from Brawijaya University. Furthermore, we are also conducting a clinical trial initiation. The efficacy and safety data of the H2 Cordyceps militaris is constantly being improved,” dr. Helmin added.
