New WellWise.org Web site focuses on supplements

BY Michael Johnsen

BOULDER, Colo. WellWise.org on Monday launched its Web site around supplements, the science behind them and other health strategies, the nonprofit announced.

“We aspire to become a trusted source of information on supplemental nutrition and news, as well as a meeting place for intelligent consumers, nutritionists, integrative medical practitioners and researchers in this important field of dietary supplements,” stated James Townsend, the site’s editor-in-chief.

“It is not easy to find real evidence-backed information on supplements and nutrition on the web,” Townsend said. “The vast majority of it is thinly veiled marketing for a specific brand of supplement. We feel the public needs something more objective in order to make informed decisions about health.”

Visitors to WellWise.org will find information on a range of supplements, the latest on their impact on various health conditions and links to the scientific research supporting use of those supplements.

TechWorld Medicals product best in show at ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy conference

BY Michael Johnsen

DALLAS TechWorld Medicals was awarded “Best New Product” Wednesday evening at the ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy conference held here for its NasalCare nasal rinse starter kit.

NasalCare is a nasal-sinus irrigation system with a patented anti-backflow technology that’s been granted 510(k) approval by the Food and Drug Administration. According to the company, the anti-backflow technology helps prevent contamination and is easier to clean after use. A protective cap prevents bacteria and debris from entering the NasalCare reservoir when not in use.

As opposed to some more traditional nasal irrigation systems, NasalCare also features a positive pressure flow so that patients don’t have to tip their heads when using, noted Lilly Zhang, president of TechWorld Medicals.

The patented nasal rinse mix included with the product contains sea salts, aloe vera and citric acid/sodium citrate as a pH balancer.

Suggested retail price is $14.99 for both the adult size and pediatric version.

Sponsored by Drug Store News, the “Best New Product” honor is selected by retail buyers in attendance.
