Professor Chihiro Tohda, Ph.D.
Department of Functional Neurology, Institute of Natural Medicine, University of Toyama
It still inspires me. I was so surprised and impressed, here at Univ. of Toyama in 1995 in the first time, to recognize what a wonderful power the natural medicines have.
The natural medicines, which is natural-origin, are a kind of goldmine for biologically active substances. As the natural medicines have been used for prevention and treatment of diseases for long period, it is the proof that those natural medicines have been recognized as both effective and safe.
I have been continuing the research for prevention and treatment of dementia more than twenty years to look for the biological substances in the natural medicines, after I experienced such a wonderful power of the natural medicines in the first time before. One of those wonderful powers found in the natural medicines was diosgenin contained in Yam
The important issue in current Japan is the expanding gap between the healthy life expectancy and the life expectancy. In preparing for coming unprecedented aging society, we developed and commercialized the diosgenin supplement “Diosgenin Gold” that, we believe, could surely contribute to individuals’ happy cheerful lives through extending the healthy life expectancy.
Please try our diosgenin supplement ”Diosgenin Gold” as one of important health management tools, together with appropriate meal, appropriate physical exercise and enough rest.
