Life Tech introduces fertility supplement
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Life Tech on Wednesday launched its Fertili-T supplement, a supplement formulated to support fertility, for both men and women.
The comprehensive product line is comprised of programs specifically designed for the varied conditions affecting fertility in approximately one in six American couples, including diagnosis of endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine fibroids, male factor infertility and unexplained infertility.
“We’ve spent years developing Fertili-T to be effective for both men and women,” stated David Tieman, Life Tech co-founder and lead inventor. “After a development process involving extensive review of the leading published study results, our own ingredient analysis and clinical trials, we are confident that Fertili-T offers an evidence-based approach to preconception with the utmost product quality and safety assurance. …
“As a husband who has experienced the difficulty of infertility firsthand—personally familiar with both In Vitro Fertilization and miscarriage—the development of Fertili-T has become a passion for me,” Tieman said. “I’ve learned that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution and it’s what has pushed me to use my extensive background in sciences and health to formulate a customized, all-natural line that really improves people’s chances of conception.”
Life Tech’s Fertili-T preconception supplement programs will be available for purchase online at www.Fertili-T.com beginning this month. Available in powder form or daily pill packets, the products are recommended for ages 25-45.
Jinsitec working on prototype medication reminder
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. A new life-sciences company, Jinsitec, is working on new devices to help patients remember to take their medication on time, according to the indystar.com.
The devices are pocket-sized timers—one of which fits on top of a pill bottle; the other attaches to blister packs or tubes of medication—that beep and flash at preset hourly intervals to remind patients to take their medication.
The company’s vice president explained the thought process behind developing the timer, “It’s not that the medication doesn’t work if the patient doesn’t take it in a timely manner, [but] it can be ineffective,” said Yvette Jules, Jinsitec vice president.
A prototype is in development and the company hopes it will hit market in six to 12 months.
