Iskra Industry has been a pioneer in creating bridges between nations and promoting traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in the Japanese healthcare market.

ISKRA’S CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE FLAGSHIP PRODUCTS

“I envision a future where Chinese medicine contributes to improving the health of people in the era of the 100-year lifespan, making society strong, vibrant, and sustainable.”

Dr. Shisei Chin, President, Iskra Industry Co., Ltd.

 

Established as a trading company in 1960 in Tokyo, Iskra Industry has contributed to improving people's health through the import and export of medicinally-effective products. “In the early 1960s, amid a polio epidemic, we imported a live polio vaccine from the Soviet Union and contributed to the quelling of the virus, fostering relations in challenging times,” says Dr. Shisei Chin, President of Iskra Industry.

Iskra Industry continues to focus on its mission of creating bridges between people through trade with other countries. The company’s focus on TCM began in the late 1960s, importing not only medicines but also the concepts behind Chinese herbal medicines.

Dr. Chin, a doctor with a background in Chinese medicine, stresses the need to promote TCM in Japan. “I really feel that promoting TCM and herbal medicine in the medical field is meaningful not only for improving diseases, but also for self-medication,” he says, emphasizing the comprehensive approach of Chinese medicine.

“The company’s original product, Iskra Kangen-karyu, is intended to relieve headaches, stiff shoulders, and palpitations in middle-aged people or those prone to hypertension. In TCM, the condition of poor blood circulation is called ‘stagnant blood’, and this product can be used to treat disorders caused by stagnant blood due to aging or lifestyle-related diseases,” says Dr. Chin.

Currently, Iskra Industry’s innovative approach includes applying TCM to pets and making inroads into the dissemination of knowledge of yakuzen medicinal cuisine. “I envision a future where Chinese medicine contributes to improving the health of people in the era of the 100-year lifespan, making society strong, vibrant, and sustainable,” stresses Dr. Chin.
