Mount Laurel, N.J.—Fuji Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. Hosted the inaugural symposium of the Japanese Society for Astaxanthin (JSA). The event featured recent research on astaxanthin, including a Hokkaido University study connecting astaxanthin supplementation to improvements in visual asthenopia (eye fatigue) and accommodation levels (switching focus between two fixed distances)l a University of Medicine mechanism-of-action study illustrating how astaxanthin may inhibit kidney damage and modulate blood sugar levels; and a University of juntendo study linking astaxanthin to improved visual acuity and reduced lactic acid levels in athletes. Other topics discussed at the symposium included astaxanthin’s safety profile and beneficial effects on blood pressure. Charles DePrince, president of Fuji Health Science said, “I see the new Japanese Society for Astaxanthin as an impetus to more science and an opportunity to globalize the awareness of this exceptional carotenoids. I would like to see the society expand to an international level. To further this idea and the awareness of astaxanthin, Fuji Health Science would like to sponsor a similar symposium next year in North America.”
