Abstract: Allium species are widely used for both medicinal and food purposes because they contain multiple functional ingredients such as polysaccharides, flavonoids and volatile oils that can exert immunoregulatory effects in the body. Immune dysfunction can increase the risk of many diseases such as inflammation and cancer, which pose a great threat to human health. The immunoregulatory effects of functional ingredients in Allium species are reviewed herein, which will provide a reference for their development and applications in the future.

Key words: Allium species, functional ingredients, immune regulation, progress, development
