Teijin Group’s healthcare enterprise NOMON, Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) has, since November 6th, 2019, released its second nutraceutical product containing “hon-wasabi” extract (Wasabi-sulfinyl®) on NOMON’s e-commerce site.
A plant native to Japan, hon-wasabi is said to have been used for nourishment during the Asuka period. Moreover, hon-wasabi, which is served as a condiment alongside sushi and sashimi for its deodorization effect and antibacterial effects*1, is being tested for its promising benefits.
Wasabi-sulfinyl® is a component extracted from grated hon-wasabi with the pungency of wasabi removed. It contains the rare health ingredient 6-MSITC (6-methylsulfinylhexyl isothiocyanate).
With “LIFE IS LONG” as our brand message, NOMON Co., Ltd. seeks to achieve “Productive Aging” by which all people can live out their lives in their own way as they age, connected as much as possible to everything around them. We will continue contributing to a better quality of life for the world’s people by expanding our product lineup.
