GM Pharmaceuticals introduces line of specialized allergy OTCs

BY Michael Johnsen

DALLAS, – GM Pharmaceuticals on Tuesday introduced DayClear Allergy and DayClear Sinus Relief, a new-to-the-market product line that addresses a sometimes forgotten class of patients — those battling Celiac Disease, diabetes, alcohol intolerance, acetaminophen intolerance and dye sensitivities.
 
GM Pharmaceuticals believes the DayClear line fills a gap for millions of Americans affected by diseases and intolerances requiring special diets and pharmaceutical considerations. The owners of GM Pharmaceuticals answered this need because the matter hit close to home.
 
"When my son was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease, we struggled to find OTC medicines that he could take, even for something like allergies," explained Odes Mitchell, the owner of GM Pharmaceuticals and creator of the DayClear brand. "We created DayClear because we wanted my son, and anyone else with a sensitivity, to have an option."
 
DayClear could be a solution for anyone who has struggled with sensitivity to the active and inactive ingredients of name brand OTC allergy and sinus medicine.
 
One in every 133 Americans is diagnosed with Celiac Disease, demanding a gluten-free regimen. All DayClear products are gluten free, allowing people with Celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergies to avoid side effects and symptoms.
 
Approximately 29.1 million Americans must stringently monitor sugar intake due to diabetes, considering all ingredient labels, even for medicine. By choosing sugar-free products, like DayClear, consumers can lower their risk of illness and disease, control cravings, improve energy and avoid allergens.
 
DayClear products are free of alcohol, eliminating the side effects of alcohol intolerance that could include nausea, headaches, flushing, increased heart rate and fainting. Research indicates that cystic fibrosis and fibromyalgia patients may experience intolerance to alcohol and sensitivities to sugar, food colors and artificial flavors.
 
Each year, 80,000 people head to the emergency room due to accidental acetaminophen overdoses. Acetaminophen overdoses may present symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, sweating, vomiting, appetite loss and convulsions. All DayClear products use choline salicylate as a pain reliever.
 
Food coloring and artificial dye sensitivity can lead to hyperactivity, lack of attention, sleep problems, stomach and respiratory issues in some adults. Most prescription and over-the-counter products contain artificial dyes to make them more attractive in the store aisle. All DayClear products are free of artificial dyes and food coloring.
 
DayClear is currently being launched in the northeast states including: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia and Delaware. The product is also available nationwide via Amazon.

BY Michael Johnsen

RONKONKOMA, N.Y. – NBTY on Tuesday launched Ester-C Immune Charge Gummies to help busy families get 100% of the daily value of the patented Ester-C formula. 
 
Ester-C is calcium ascorbate, which is formulated to contain the same metabolites the body produces that help enhance the retention of vitamin C by the white blood cells – a vital component of the immune system.
 
"With families more on-the-go than ever, we looked to introduce new delivery forms to the Ester-C portfolio, like gummies, which make it convenient for families to support their immune health anytime, anywhere," said John Frame, VP Ester-C. "We're excited to launch new Ester-C Immune Charge Gummies because the benefits of the patented Ester-C formula can now be experienced by the whole family, whether it be those heading off to school on the bus or grabbing the train to work."
