Kyowa Hakko Launches Clinically-Researched Paraprobiotic for Eye Health

The EYEMUSE™-branded ingredient is supported by published studies, giving formulators a new option for products for consumers with digital device-related eye fatigue, from everyday professionals to gamers.

The ingredient is heat-killed Lactobacillus paracasei KW3110 and supports eye health by balancing the immune system, reducing inflammation, and supporting a proper response to stresses. Notably, the retina is made up of millions of immune cells.

“We are at a point in society where more and more adults are likely to face eye strain and fatigue from increasing reliance on technology and spending prolonged hours of the day staring at digital devices,” said Karen Todd, MBA, RD, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing at Kyowa Hakko USA Inc.

“This poses a real health and quality of life issue, so we are thrilled to be at the forefront of this scientific breakthrough that utilizes a novel mechanism of action that may help reduce digital stress related eye fatigue and other ocular discomforts.”

Science
Studies performed by Kyowa Hakko’s parent-company Kirin Holdings Co., Ltd. indicate that the heat-treated bacterial strain has anti-inflammatory effects and mitigates retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cell damage caused by blue-light exposure.

A paper published in Nutrients in 2018 reported results of in vitro and in vivo human studies. The in vitro data indicated that EYEMUSE™ could protect human retinal pigment epithelial (ARPE-19) cells from the damaging effects of blue light.

The subsequent human study included 62 healthy Japanese volunteers who had experienced eye fatigue and were randomly assigned to receive either EYEMUSE™ or placebo for eight weeks. The data indicated that exposure to digital displays led to greater eye fatigue, but this fatigue was improved in the EYEMUSE™ group, compared to placebo.

Another study, published in the International Journal of Molecular Science, extended these findings by exploring the potential mechanism of action for the ingredient. Data from a mouse cell study showed that EYEMUSE™ led to significantly higher levels of the anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) compared with other lactic acid bacterium strains.

“We also showed that KW3110 suppressed human RPE [retinal pigment epithelial] cell senescence and the aberrant expression of tight junction molecules induced by chronic inflammatory stress signals from macrophages,” wrote the researchers.

In addition, the Kirin scientists performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group study with 88 healthy adults aged between 35 and 50. The volunteers were randomly assigned to consumer supplements of EYEMUSE™ or placebo for eye weeks. Data from this trial indicated that EYEMUSE™ again improved measures of eye fatigue.

“Therefore, KW3110 might be a useful and safe tool to improve ocular disorders including eye fatigue,” concluded the researchers.

Daily professionals and gamers
Commenting on the target consumers, Todd said everyone can benefit from the ingredient. “We envision EYEMUSE™ to be geared toward the screen-glued multitaskers, young professionals who are always ‘on,’ and gamers, who are spending 14 hours a week playing video games, up from 12 hours a week in 2018,” she said.

The ingredient is non-GMO, vegetarian, and GRAS, according to Kyowa Hakko.

BCM-95® Curcumin Powerful Anti-Inflammatory for Knee Osteoarthritis

Results of a new study reveal Arjuna Natural Pvt, Ltd.'s proprietary turmeric extract as effective as paracetamol in reducing pain and other symptoms of knee osteoarthritis (OA). The study demonstrated that the highly bioavailable compound was more effective in reducing inflammation. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the articular joints characterized by the breakdown of cartilage, joint lining, ligaments, and underlying bone. Common manifestations of osteoarthritis are stiffness and pain.

Led by Shuba Singhal, PhD, this randomized, controlled clinical study was conducted at the Department of Orthopedics of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital/Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi. Results were published in the journal Biomed Central BMC. For the study, 193 patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee were randomized to receive either turmeric extract (BCM-95®) as a 500 mg capsule two times daily, or a 650 mg tablet of paracetamol three times daily for six weeks.

Knee arthritis symptoms of pain, joint stiffness, and diminished physical function were evaluated using the Western Ontario and Mc Master Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC). After six weeks of treatment, responder analysis showed significant improvement in WOMAC scores across all parameters comparable to the paracetamol group, with 18% of the BCM-95 group reporting 50% improvement, and 3% of subjects noting 70% improvement.

These encouraging results were positively reflected in the BCM-95 group's serum inflammatory markers: CRP levels were reduced by 37.21%, and TNF-α levels were cut by an impressive 74.81%, indicating BCM-95 performed better than paracetamol.

The study was a follow up to an Arjuna study conducted over a year ago that demonstrated a positive link between its flagship high-bioavailable curcumin formulation and osteoarthritic care. "The goal of the current study was to build on the earlier studies to give a better clarity and specificity by including more markers and a better scoring methodology," explains Benny Antony PhD, Joint Managing Director for Arjuna. "The anti-arthritic effect of BCM-95 in osteoarthritis is attributed to its capability to modulate anti-inflammatory markers TNF and CRP."

Knee OA is the leading cause of disability and pain among adult and old age populations. An estimated 10 to 15% of all adults older than 60 years have some degree of OA, with prevalence higher among women than men. "This Study re-affirms the anti-arthritic effect of BCM-95 and provides renewed hope for millions to improve their quality of life", notes Nipen Lavingia, brand innovation advisor for Arjuna Natural based in Dallas, TX, USA. "It is no wonder that leading natural supplement brands supporting joint health, have chosen BCM-95."

"We are learning more about the mechanisms behind curcumin's anti-inflammatory effect which we believe is a result of its ability to inhibit pro-inflammatory signals, such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and cyclooxygenase-2. In addition, curcumin has been demonstrated to suppress several pro-inflammatory cytokines and mediators of their release, such as tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), IL-1, IL-8, and nitric oxide synthase," explains Antony.

BCM-95's unique fusion of curcuminoids and turmerone-rich essential oil components overcomes curcumin's characteristic bioavailability hurdles due to its inherent high lipophilic nature. In a previous pilot crossover investigation in human volunteers, the relative bioavailability of Arjuna's formulation was shown to be nearly seven times higher than standard curcumin and scored considerably better than curcumin–lecithin–piperine formulations, as demonstrated by free curcumin levels detected in the blood.
