Bionorica introduces sinus syrup for kids
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. Bionorica on Thursday launched Sinupret for Kids syrup, a natural remedy for healthy sinus, respiratory and immune support that features a combination of natural ingredients that doesn’t exist in any other clinically-tested natural products, the company stated.
“With OTC medicines’ safety and efficacy now in question, parents need safe and effective non-drug options that keep children healthy,” stated Narinder Duggal, associate professor at the University of Washington
“We are proud to be able to bring Sinupret for Kids to the U.S. market to give parents a safe and effective product that has been tested with over 3,000 children in just one of Bionorica’s scientific studies,” stated Michael Popp, chief executive officer of Bionorica.
And even though Sinupret is now being into the U.S. market, it has a strong sales pedigree in Germany. For the 12 months ending April, more than 7.5 million units of Sinupret were purchased in Germany, with over 500,000 units purchased for kids under 12.
Sinupret for Kids syrup promotes healthy drainage in the upper respiratory tract, improves airflow in the nose and supports healthy mucous flow in the nose and sinuses. The natural remedy is developed through a proprietary blend of European Elder, Sorrel, Cowslip, European Vervain, and Gentian that supports healthy sinus and respiratory function for children 2 and older.
Bionorica is registered in over 35 countries as a phytopharmaceutical product.
Study shows healthy living in women reduces mortality risks
NEW YORK Women who live a healthy lifestyle reduce their risk of dying young from any cause, especially heart disease and cancer, according to a Harvard University study.
The study found that women who avoid smoking, exercise and keep their weight at a healthy level and eat healthy foods live longer than those who don’t.
The study used data on 77,782 women who participated in a health study at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital collected through annual questionnaires over 24 years, starting in 1980. Of the 8,882 women who died, 4,527 died from cancer and 1,790 died from heart disease, but those who lived healthy lifestyles reduced their risk of death by 55 percent, including the risk of cancer-related death by 44 percent and of cardiovascular disease-related death by 72 percent.
The study appeared online in the Sept. 17 edition of the British Medical Journal.
