Advanced BloodStop now available at CVS/pharmacy

BY Michael Johnsen

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — LifeScience Plus recently introduced Advanced BloodStop, a bandage that helps stop bleeding in less than one minute, at CVS/pharmacy.

“We are very excited to be able to offer this product through CVS,” stated Wayne Korteweg, COO of LifeScience Plus. “BloodStop is so much more effective and versatile than ordinary bandages; it’s an essential for any medicine cabinet, first aid kit or car for home or travel emergencies.”

The bandage looks and feels like ordinary cotton gauze when dry but transforms into a gel once it comes in contact with blood. BloodStop adheres to the skin’s surface and creates pressure to seal and protect the wound while stopping the bleeding. BloodStop is easily removed with water or saline.

Advanced BloodStop will retail for a suggested $10.99 to $13.99 for a package of five, individually-packaged, sterile gauzes.

Honey Naturals employs social media on competitive product exchange

BY Michael Johnsen

SANDY, Utah — Honey Naturals last week started offering parents a free bottle of Zarbee’s children’s cough syrup in exchange for a Facebook photo of them discarding a competitive brand of cough syrup.

The exchange was launched in response to a recent C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital national poll on children’s health, which found 61% of parents of children ages 6 months to 2 years gave over-the-counter cough-cold medicines to their children within the last 12 months, despite a 2008 warning issued by the Food and Drug Administration against the use of OTC cough-cold products for infants and children under 2 years of age.

After posting that photo here on the Zarbee Facebook page, parents can mail a receipt for a reimbursement of the purchase. The promotion runs through Feb. 25.

Zarbee’s children’s cough syrup combines a blend of buckwheat and wildflower honeys with other all-natural ingredients to calm coughs.
