The aim of this study was to investigate the bioavailability of Allium hookeri root extracts and evaluate its beneficial effects on hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative stress in cultured H9C2 cardiomyocytes. After H9C2 cardiomyocytes were treated with the AHE, a substantial decrease in the H2O2-induced cytotoxicity was observed in a dose dependent manner. These results suggest that AHE has beneficial effects on cardiac dysfunction which can be used as a valuable supplement in the health-care products.
