Researchers at Kirin are the first to discover the benefits of EYEMUSE™, Lacticaseibacillus paracasei KW3110†, a proprietary heat-killed probiotic strain for eye health.* EYEMUSE™ is the only lactic acid bacteria that has been suggested to reduce the effect of blue light by activating immune cells.*
What is Lacticaseibacillus paracasei †?
L. paracasei is a commonly used lactic acid bacteria for the fermentation of dairy products and has benefits for gut health.*
What are postbiotics?
Postbiotics are defined as dead bacteria (or dead probiotics) with benefits for human health when taken orally. Postbiotics, in general, have a superior stability profile compared to probiotics.
What is EYEMUSE™?
EYEMUSE™ is heat-killed Lacticaseibacillus paracasei KW3110†, the only strain in the world that has been clinically researched to support eye health and reduce eye fatigue.*
Recent published clinical trials have shown:
Study 1: Addressing occasional blue light effects and supporting retina health with EYEMUSE™
In vitro and in vivo studies were performed to study the protective effects of the Lacticaseibacillus paracasei KW3110† (EYEMUSE™) strain on retinal functions.1
EYEMUSE™ stimulates immune cells that produce regulatory cytokines such as IL-10 to support eye health.* By helping the regulatory cytokine induction and supporting a balanced immune response, EYEMUSE™ may help reduce digital stress-related eye fatigue and other ocular discomforts.*
Study 2: Effect of EYEMUSE™ on Eye Fatigue
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, researchers studied the effects of EYEMUSE™ for eye fatigue on 88 healthy subjects over 8 weeks.2
Using critical flicker frequency (CFF), an indicator of eye fatigue, EYEMUSE™ significantly reduced eye fatigue.*
Study 3: Effect of EYEMUSE™ on ocular health
A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in 62 healthy Japanese participants aged 35 - 45 with eye fatigue over an 8-week period.3
EYEMUSE™ was shown to reduce eye fatigue symptoms such as ocular discomfort, stiffness in the waist and/or shoulder, and ocular fatigue sensation.*
The bottom line
To keep your eyes performing at their best, add EYEMUSE™, a proprietary heat-killed probiotic strain, to your daily routine.
