DreamPak launches appetite control snack Trimma

BY Michael Johnsen

ALEXANDRIA, Va. DreamPak Nutritional Supplements on Monday launched its appetite and weight control snack called Trimma, which contains natural appetite-reducing ingredients, the company stated.

According to the company, Trimma chocolate soft chews contain two clinically-tested ingredients, PinnoThin and Slendesta. PinnoThin stimulates the production of hunger-eliminating hormones in the body, signaling feelings of fullness to the brain. Slendesta enhances and extends the release of hunger-eliminating hormones.

“Trimma works to reduce food cravings and satisfy hunger,” said Waleed Gamay, account manager of DreamPak. “We’ve seen a shift in consumers’ attitudes toward diet as well as health and wellness, with more consumers seeking product choices that support active lifestyles.”

Mexican product released in U.S. may prevent erectile dysfunction

BY Alaric DeArment

SAN FRANCISCO Hispanic men between the ages of 20 and 50 are two and a half times as likely as men of other races and ethnicities to develop erectile dysfunction, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2005.

A product on the market in Mexico since 2004 and recently introduced in the United States might address the problem. CRB Ventures said the product, The Sensual Tea, has a rate of effectiveness of 87.3 percent in treating erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation and has no side effects.

“It is possible to prevent sexual problems from ever occurring,” CRB Ventures president Christian Beasley said in a statement. “The Sensual Tea overcomes low libido and sexual fatigue and enhances the pleasure and intensity of sex.”

Medical Nutrition USA said its total sales were steady, increasing about 0.01 percent. The company also said that gross margin remained steady at about 53 percent.

The company reported that its incoming net cash from operating activities was $492,200, compared to $598,600, in 2007. And net loss was reportedly $50,900, compared to a net income of $220,000, or $0.01 per share.

Total sales rose 5 percent to around $10 million, up from $9 million for the same time period the previous year, the company said. Gross profit totaled $5. million, comprising 53 percent of sales.

“Our results reflect the ongoing successful implementation of our plan to accelerate market penetration through expansion of our sales force and more aggressive pricing. Unit sales of branded products continue to increase handsomely, growing at 26 percent for the quarter and 28 percent for the nine months as a result of sales to both new and existing customers as well as new products. Private label sales are expected to continue to decline modestly over time as part of our long-term strategy to deemphasize private label sales in favor of branded product sales. Overall, we remain very much on track and are pleased with our performance for the quarter,” chairman and chief executive officer Frank Newman said.

Medical Nutrition USA develops and distributes supplement products, such as Pro-Stat bottled liquid protein and UTI-stat liquid antioxidant supplement for cleansing the urinary tract, for “nutritionally at-risk” patients under longterm care and/or medical supervision.
