BY Michael Johnsen

SPARTA TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Rise-N-Shine recently highlighted its Wake Up on Time supplement formulated to help night owls transform into morning people. Taken right before bed, Wake Up on Time starts to work six to eight hours later by releasing energy supplements for an alert, refreshed feeling.

“It’s more than a vitamin; it’s time in a bottle because, instead of hitting the snooze button over and over again, our product allows you bounce out of bed, ready to go,” Cathy Beggan, founder of Rise-N-Shine stated. 

Wake Up On Time is a proprietary blend of B vitamins, amino acids, guarana seed extract and siberian ginseng that are geared to address the psychological and physical reasons why people have trouble getting out of bed in the morning.

Study: Smoking cessation and reduced tobacco intake compels ‘non-quitters’ to quit

BY Michael Johnsen

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Smokeless tobacco users who said they didn’t want to quit changed their minds or significantly cut back when given nicotine lozenges or tobacco-free snuff in a Mayo Clinic study.

The findings are published in the February issue of Addictive Behaviors.

Mayo researchers recruited 81 users of chewing tobacco or snuff with no intention of quitting in the next 30 days. Forty were given 4-mg nicotine lozenges and 41 received tobacco-free snuff to help cut back their smokeless tobacco use. They were asked to cut back 50% by one month and 75% by two months. 

Participants received eight weeks of treatment and behavioral counseling on tobacco reduction strategies with follow-up to 26 weeks. Both groups significantly reduced smokeless tobacco use in cans used per week and dips per day and sustained it through the end of the study. About one-third of study participants continued using 75% less smokeless tobacco use 26 weeks after the study, and 12% of the participants quit using it completely.

“The reason why that is so striking and important to us is these patients had no intention of quitting,” stated addiction expert Jon Ebbert, a tobacco researcher at the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center. “Through the process of just reducing their tobacco, participants wanted to quit and were successful in doing so.”

The study was funded by the National Cancer Institute.

UrgentRx expands distribution into Duane Reade, Walmart

BY Michael Johnsen

DENVER — UrgentRx on Wednesday announced expansion of its line of fast-acting over-the-counter flavored powder medications into Duane Reade and Walmart. 

“As the reputation of our products has spread, we’ve been pleased by the response from consumers and retailers — who are both quickly recognizing that being on-the-go doesn’t mean you have to suffer when common ailments strike,” stated Jordan Eisenberg, president of UrgentRx. “Today, UrgentRx possesses a retail presence in more than 1,200 stores across the country. And through our current negotiations with retailers we expect to be in more than 25,000 locations by Q3 2013.”

UrgentRx was named “Best New Product” by attendees at the ECRM Health Care show in August. Soon after, the company launched its sixth product, Allergy Attack Relief to Go.

“Our goal has always been to make on-the-go ailments as easy to treat as when you are sitting in the comfort of your home within reach of your medicine cabinet,” Eisenberg said. “We’ve been incredibly excited to find that so many people are now considering UrgentRx to be a key part of their life and their health care.”
