Chrysantis Appoints CK Nutritional Ingredients Exclusive Distributor for Canadian Market

Chrysantis, Inc., a leading supplier of raw materials focused on eye health, is pleased to announce the appointment of Toronto-based CK Nutritional Ingredients as exclusive Canadian distributor for its growing range of products. Based in West Chicago, Illinois, Chrysantis manufactures and markets a line of zeaxanthin ingredients under the EZEyes® trademark name. EZEyes® brand zeaxanthin products are all-natural, GRAS, vegetarian, non-GMO and manufactured in the USA.

Michael Chernyak, General Manager of CK Nutritional Ingredients, states “We are very proud to have been chosen to partner with Chrysantis in the Canadian dietary supplement and natural health products market. Eye health is a growing segment of the natural health products industry and the impressive body of clinical evidence for zeaxanthin in the areas of age-related macular degeneration, central vision and glare reduction makes it an excellent choice for eye health formulations.”

Chrysantis offers EZEyes® natural zeaxanthin in a variety of forms and concentrations, including 5% and 10% oil suspension and, more recently, a 10% beadlet form. This makes it suitable for use in softgels, powders, tablets and capsules. Phil Gowaski, Sales and Marketing Manager for Chrysantis says “We have worked hard to ensure that the new EZEyes® beadlet protects zeaxanthin during the tabletting process and that it remains stable when in contact with a wide variety of ingredients, which makes it the product of choice for a multivitamin tablet.”

CK Nutritional Ingredients is in the process of introducing Chrysantis’ zeaxanthin range to the Canadian dietary supplement and natural health products market and expects robust demand due to the combination of high quality and purity, competitive pricing, reliable supply and strong safety and efficacy data.

Chrysantis will be exhibiting at Supply Side West in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 22nd – 24th at Booth #22039.
