BY Michael Johnsen

NEW YORK — HungerShield on Friday announced the launch of its appetite control product of the same name. The appetite suppressant is formulated with a blend of fiber, protein and probiotics and is designed to be mixed with 12-16 oz. of water to create a lemon-lime flavored drink that can be consumed on-the-go.

“With close to 70% of the U.S. population overweight or obese, and 95% of dieters gaining weight back within 1 to 5 years, HungerShield addresses a dieter’s biggest pitfall — appetite control — in a completely natural way,” stated Elizabeth DeRobertis, co-founder of HungerShield.

With only 40 calories, HungerShield contains 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber along with whey protein, flaxseed powder and probiotics.

BY Alaric DeArment

NEW YORK — In View, the Discovery Channel program of which Larry King is host, will include a feature about DivaCup, a reusable menstrual cup.

The show will air on March 7 at 7 a.m., examining the product and its role in feminine hygiene and featuring the mother and daughter who created it, Francine and Carinne Chambers. The product is made from healthcare-grade silicone and is designed to reduce the amount of disposable feminine hygiene waste created each year.

"This year, we are celebrating the DivaCup’s 10-year anniversary, so we can’t think of a better time to share our story and bring awareness about this altnerative and sustainable period care option to a national audience with the In View series," Francine Chambers said.

Banishing balding

BY Michael Johnsen

CHICAGO — Balding men will give up just about anything to get their hair back, according to a recent survey out of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery — including that monster 60-in. LCD HDTV bought for this year’s airing of the 49ers versus the Ravens. Of the 2,338 men with male pattern hair loss polled, more than 56% said they would be willing to give up something they owned in exchange for more hair. But they might not have to go as far as getting surgery with the launch of Lifes2good Natural Healthcare’s Viviscal Man. It’s a supplement that not only helps to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth, but also might keep that latest big screen off of eBay.
