Hicural for Hiccup Relief

BY Michael Johnsen

Hicural used the NACDS Marketplace convention as the launchpad for its new product: Hicural for Hiccup Relief. Studies attribute hiccups to eating or drinking too much or too fast, anxiety, stress, excitement and even pregnancy in women. The Hicural is a reed-like device that you place across the mouth and sip a beverage through. The question is, where do you merchandise it? At the checkstand and within children’s remedies are ideal display points, Hicural executives told Drug Store News, as is the digestives aisle. Suggested retail price for the impulse purchase item is $6.95. For more information, visit Hicural.com/default.asp.

Nature Made Krill Oil

BY Michael Johnsen

Pharmavite’s newest product, Nature Made Krill Oil, offers a new source of omega-3 fatty acids in addition to a naturally occurring antioxidant called astaxanthin. The algae that krill eat produce the bright-red pigment astaxanthin that gives krill and other crustaceans, such as lobster and shrimp, their reddish-pink color. The Krill Oil comes in a small, easy-to-swallow soft-gel capsule and offers an alternative source of omega-3 fatty acids without a fishy burp or aftertaste. Each soft gel delivers 90 mg of omega-3 and 75 mg of phospholipids. Suggested retail price is $24.99. For more information, visit Naturemade.com.

Intimina by LELO

BY Michael Johnsen

LELO has launched a high-end line of Kegel exercisers called Laselle under the Intimina by LELO brand for women with incontinence issues. Such factors as pregnancy, childbirth, aging and obesity can result in the weakening of the pelvic muscles, leading to possible urinary or bowel incontinence. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials by the Cochrane Collaboration concluded that pelvic exercises should be included in first-line conservative management programs for women with urinary incontinence. The Kegel exercisers are available in three weights — 28 g, 38 g and 48 g — and retail for a suggested $12.95 each. For more information, visit Intimina.com/products_Laselle_Beads.html.

There are sensitive health issues that require special care, otherwise they can reflect in serious condition in a while. I got to think these days about the drug rehab programs, they have a strong strategy behind and they keep enhancing people`s lives, just like any other medical service.
