HomeYHK Q&A
Q1: What is ALT and AST?
ALT (Alanine transaminase) is also called GPT ( glutamic-pyruvic transaminase), it is the enzyme in liver cells. When liver cells are destroyed, liver shows inflammation which can induce the increase of ALT value. ALT value is recognized by WHO as the most sensitive test index of liver function damage.
AST (Aspartate aminotransferase) is also called GOT (glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase). There are 70% AST in heart and muscle, and 30% in liver. There are many causes which can lead to the increase of ALT value, such as fatigue, exercise, heart diseases, side effects of drugs and liver diseases. AST is the reference value of liver test.
Q2: What's the difference between YHK and DTS?
YHK has wonderful effects on recovering and repairing liver function. When the hepatocyte membrane is destroyed by virus, alcohol, drugs and so on, the enzymes (ALT and AST ) in liver cells will leak out. At this time, YHK can quickly and effectively repair impaired hepatocyte membrane and resist inflammation.
DTS plays a vital role in maintaining liver function and enhance immunity. Also DTS can help YHK to recover damaged liver cells. Using DTS can lower the cost.
Q3: YHK dose and the alternative methods with DTS
According to long-term data, daily intake of 3.8 pills YHK can effectively recover liver function. In order to reduce the economic cost of the patient.Patients can adjust the dosage according to their own conditions. The data below is for your reference only.
Alternative methods With DTS
  YHK DTS Remarks
GPT(ALT)abnormal 3~4pill/day After one month,check GPT(ALT)
GPT(ALT)become normal 2~3pill/day 4~12pill/day Patients can adjust the dosage according to the ALT values.
Maintain healthy liver 1~2pill/day 4~8pill/day
Q4: Why YHK is expensive?
The high cost of raw material and production process are the key reasons.
Limited by raw material(natural), we can just have small scale production.
We have special expert team around the world, they are doing high-level and high-quality research. All the research achievements are published in world famous journal. The high research fees is also part of our cost.
For the reasons above, YHK is expensive. But the price will be down-regulated with the increase of production quantity. (Maker)
Q5: YHK--good effects, but high price, hard for long-term use.
If the liver test index is normal, the YHK dose can be reduced from 4 pills everyday to 3 or 2 pills. For the decrement, you can take DTS (which is cheaper than YHK) to replace. Please refer to Q3 for detailed methods. (Maker)
A YHK Testimonial from Hepatitis C Cirrhosis patient: 9th June 2013    
Thank you for the opportunity to give my testimonial on my life improvements since starting the YHK Therapy in mid February of this year.I have had Hepatitis C for almost 20 years but have been symptomatic for the past 10 years. I am 62 years of age. I am a non-drinker and have been for about 15 years.
About a year ago my health was slowly deteriorating to the extent where I couldn’t walk to the shop that was less than a kilometre away. My previous blood test had indicated that my liver scarring was quite significant and after living with Hepatitis C for more than a decade I assumed that this was my lot and a slow fade out was all I could expect.
Despite keeping in contact with the Liver Clinic at the main hospital here in Perth, Western Australia, I had not tried the interferon program because I have always been under weight my whole life and now I was down to 47 kilos and falling. I am quite tall really should weigh 60 kilos or more. Accompanying my liver problems I have gastritis, a digestion complaint causing bloating and acid stomach resulting in a very particular diet. Consequently I was advised not to start the program as the loss of appetite that might ensue would result in further weight reduction.
One day I typed in “cirrhosis” into Google and it came up with YHK website. After reading a few of the testimonials which included people saying that had had success with symptom relief on YHK for Hepatitis C and cirrhosis, whilst having little success with Interferon. After seeing the size of the tablets (on screen) I suspected that they would not exacerbate my bloating (most pills and capsules do). I sent away for the smallest package and after 2 weeks of taking 6 a day I noticed a gradual reduction of the dizziness that I had been feeling and an improvement in my energy levels. My following blood test indicated that my ALT level had normalised from 120 to 33. I had never seen it this low. There had also been a slight reduction in my viral load. This happened in about 3 weeks with my weight also increasing to 50 kilos. I have yet to find the perfect dose for me, but at present I’m on 2-3 tablets a day.
Earlier this year my son had invited me to his wedding in May up in the north west of Western Australia. I had been feeling so bad that I knew I wouldn’t be able to attend, but after starting the YHK Therapy I had improved significantly enough to attend and have a delightful holiday for a week.
I’m obviously impressed by the effectiveness of YHK in relation to my condition and would certainly recommend it to anyone with similar symptoms and causes. I must inform that my symptoms have not completely disappeared and I still have to be strict with regards to diet, water, sleep etc., but they seem infinitely more manageable since starting the Therapy.The price, of course is the one thing that many of us using YHK dislike, however I also think we reluctantly appreciate that you pay for quality.
I find your service to be first class and with Perth, Western Australia being so close to Japan the time of delivery is about a week which is also very satisfactory.
I am curios to hear about other YHK users, their dosage and how they manage their conditions as I try and find my best dosage. Perhaps suggestions as to which chat-rooms to use for more information.
I have been lucky enough to spend a short time in Japan some years ago and was instantly charmed by the culture, the precision, design and eye for detail. I find it unsurprising that such a quality product should come from there.
Many Thanks,
Yours Truly, Clarence Bailey

Liver Health Improvement Review, By Sophia Flowers     
YHK was recommended to me by Jo Le-Rose and Mike Robinson who are trusted friends. They are amazing people who have introduced hundreds to improved health through their understanding of the human body. Jo used the YHK herself and it improved her liver health.
The reason I have problems with my liver is that I have an addiction to sugar and fatty foods, because I have an eating disorder. I am now changing this deep-seated habit, but it has left me with physical difficulties in my liver, ie
Pain in my liver.
Pain in the chest area, especially the right side where the liver meridian runs through the breast area.
Discomfort in the lymph round the armpit area.
Bloating on eating and swelling.
Heavy head/sluggish on waking up.
Inability to focus, take action and lack of concentration/difficulty in remembering. Feeling heavy and down.
Blurred vision in both eyes, partial blindness at times in the left eye.
Insomnia and tension in my muscles.
Itching during the night for the last 7 years. Night calf cramps.
Much pain in my right shoulder that drops forward as the liver itself and meridian are blocked and pull down.
Problems with haemoglobin and ferratin levels in my blood which lead to lack of energy and tiredness.
Pain in joints.
I started taking YHK on 22nd March 2013 and took the maximum dose for 10 days. During this time, the pain in my liver, the meridian, shoulder and lymph were more painful so initially it felt my symptoms were worse, but I knew it was because it was initiating change. I then continued with 30 days of DTS, again at the maximum dosage, and started to notice changes in my right shoulder and my head was starting to feel lighter in the mornings. In addition, I found it soothed my kidneys which used to ache on waking up and it seemed to help my spleen which also caused pain in my back.
I partly stopped because of the expense. In the past few weeks, I have started taking the DTS again and would like to take the YHK for at least a month and follow the protocol suggested on your website until I am fully recovered (I am saving up). Then I can take the DTS as a maintenance dose.
I had a full set of blood, glucose, liver and kidney function tests last October 2012 – the Doctor found them to be satisfactory. I had these done again recently on 22nd July 2013 and again, these have been found to be satisfactory, although my Urea levels have dipped. My results are as follows:-
Serum Birillium 10
Alkaline Phosphate 57
Serum Total Protein 68
Serum Alanine Aminotranferase (ALT) 11
My haemoglobin result was 12.4 with my ferratin being 39. These have always been low my whole life, but I am convinced that these will improve as my liver becomes healthier. It is my intention to have another test when I have completed the YHK for a full month. I have no doubt that this is one of those products that will benefit humanity helping those who are seriously ill and those who need help with long-standing issues such as myself.
This is where I feel you could spread the net wider on your website with the information given out. In addition, to those serious illnesses the site have mentioned, it will assist any liver health issue ranging from those with obesity to those with depression. I would highly recommend both YHK and DTS. Having been a complementary health practitioner for 17 years, I have tried many things and know that this works.
It is a product which is easy to take. The tablets are neat and small in size; very easy to consume. The size means that those seriously ill, the elderly or anyone who may have difficulty in swallowing can take these tablets with ease.
YHK is not a cheap product. Taking high dosages means the tablets do not last long, but if you are committed to your health then it is worthwhile doing this as results are felt quite rapidly. My problem started 30 years ago so to experience a change within 40 days of which only 10 were on the YHK is quite amazing.
I would like to compliment the company on their delivery of the product. It travels to me in the UK, all the way from Japan. However, I receive my order within days. In addition, I find staff polite, efficient and ready to help in whatever way they can.
Finally, I would like to say thank you. Please use my testimonial to help others.

YHK Review By Chronic Hepatitis Patient, Fanny Wong
Chronic Hepatitis B Patients: 27 March 2013     
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I would like to use my review to thanks YHK, and whom invented YHK. I have always been a hepatitis B virus carrier. For many years, I did not have any problem living with it as my liver health was normal. About 2 years ago, when I was 46 years old, I started feeling tired easy, but nothing too serious that I would think it is a problem, then after a month or so my skin started to go darker, and that was when I went for a liver function test after my family members suggest that I should. The result come out showing that I have an increased hepatitis B virus count to about 8000000, ALT and AST level well over 150, and my doctor told me that I have chronic hepatitis B.
My doctor prescribed me “Baraclude” and told me that I need to control the hepatitis B viruses, but before I started using the prescription, I looked at the Full prescription (http://packageinserts.bms.com/pi/pi_baraclude.pdf) of this drug and found that it can causes some bad side effects. After doing some research and seeing some of the review of this medicine, I decided not to use it, and during my research I found some positive reviews on YHK. And as some users of YHK said that they can see the effects of YHK quite soon, I decided to try YHK first before using “Baraclude”.
So I purchased 2 boxes of YHK and started taking 8 tablets per day for about 25 days and I went for a liver function test, the result come out surprisingly well, with my virus count drop to 30000 and AST and ALT level drop to 23 and 30 respectively. My doctor was just as surprised. I carry on to use YHK for the next three months and my AST and ALT remains in the normal levels, but my virus count has gone up after I reduced the YHK tablets to 4 tablets per day.
After discussing with the support from YHK site, and my doctor, I am now taking 4 YHK tablets and 1 Baraclude tablet together as a combine treatment. And I have been doing so for over 1 year now, and I feel great. I does not feel any side effects at all, and I think this is due to the effects of YHK also. After using YHK, I sleep better and eat better, my skin colour, ALT and AST level and virus count is back to normal now and I keep going for liver function test every three months.
I would strongly recommend people with hepatitis B to consider using YHK or combine YHK with your current treatment. I hope that I can stop using Baraclude next year. As for the price of YHK, I think it is expensive as a supplement, but if you look at it as a medication for treating Hepatitis then it is not so bad, but in Hong Kong, we can not clam insurance for supplements. Maybe this is different in other countries?
Anyways, I would like to thank you YHK once again, and also thank you for the wonderful support I get from the YHK support team. Thank you!
Best Regards
Fanny Wong, Hong Kong
