Daewon Gwon, CEO of Healthome, is famous for his experience of losing 60kg of his 130kg body. He could not help sharing the secret with many of those who were wowed by his deed and he evetually launched a diet business for them. And the secret was nothing magical but mushiroom. Rich in firber, this fungus helps our body release waste and harmful substance and makes us feel full and satisfied as if we just have had meat for a meal.
Having gained a brand image as a healthy diet for the beautiful, Healthsome recently launched a Korean medicine diet food ‘SSOK’ made of 28 kinds of vegetables including black tree fungus and enoki mushroom. It is good for constipation and helps body intake balanced nutrients. Black tree fungus and enoki mushroom in particular have ‘firmicutes’ that suppresses the proliferation of harmful bactacteria in the bowels while improves constitution and reduces body fat.
SSOK is liquid and offered in 4 lines: Mi, Gyeong, Ki and Chung. All are based on black tree fungus extract and added with jujube, cinnamon, yellow flag, peony depending on the product. The fungus is low in calorie and rish in fiber and water, and small amount of intake makes body feel full and satisfied. The fungus is also rich in vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus that help detox and circulation of blood.
Althought Healthsome has run the business only about 2 years, the products released on the market have steadily been loved by many dieters. Taking the momentum, CEO Gwon recently introduced a diet program designed to be effective in a short period of time. He poured years of knowledge and experience in the program and it is melted with science.
Jeongho Ryu, Director of Healthsome, is a member of national fitness model team and is serving as a judge for a number of contests. As an expert of health care, he is supporting the diet program of Healthsome systematically and scientifically.
The most important thing in diet, Gwon says, is psychological stability. Unstability brings binge eating and irregular patterns to life. He currently is taking a master’s course in sports psychology to deepen his knowledge and to bring more effective ways of reducing weight and improving our health.
