BioAstin now allowed to use 17 different Structure/Function Claims

BioAstin has now undergone US FDA review for a total of 17 different structure/function claims. This allows companies marketing BioAstin to use any of these claims on their product labels, in literature and on their websites. Legality of claims vary greatly in other countries; in some markets claims are already allowed, while in others claims are still awaiting approval. “Finally, we can advertise the benefits of BioAstin to consumers in the USA,” said Gerry Cysewski, Cyanotech’s CEO and Founder.

Cyanotech is the worldwide leader in production capacity of natural Astaxanthin, and has conducted several human clinical studies to validate the benefits of BioAstin. In addition to the 17 allowed structure function claims, Cyanotech holds three patents on the use of Astaxanthin in human nutrition, as well as three patents related to the production of microalgae.
