NEWARK, N.J. — Inergetics and the Podiatree Co. on Tuesday launched Intrinsix, a podiatry-exclusive nerve health support supplement enriched with calcium and vitamin D.
Developed alongside pharmacist, Robert Graci, Inergetics has created a unique formula to support healthy nerve function and specifically help diabetic patients who experience nerve-related symptoms in their extremities, which include tingling, pain, burning and loss of sensation, the company stated.
"With approximately 15,000 podiatrists practicing in the U.S., we are taking a direct sales approach to help them support the ever-increasing proportion of the population suffering with diabetes," Inergetics CEO Mike James said. "Intrinsix is a great addition to the Inergetics family and we look forward to continuing our work with The Podiatree Company to advance foot care for the benefit of patients."
"As a company dedicated to the podiatry specialty market, we take pride in being able to provide our physician partners with unique and efficacious specialty products to meet their patients' needs," Graci said.
Intrinsix contains a unique blend of alpha lipoic acid, benfotiamine, calcium and vitamins B6, B12 and D. The formula is safe for patients with strict dietary restrictions, including vegetarians and those with sugar-free, sodium-free and starch-free diets, Inergetics noted.
