NEW YORK – Mediterra on Tuesday announced it has added distribution in more than 800 stores nationwide that include H-E-B, Fresh & Easy, Schnucks and Dierbergs. The stores will feature Mediterra nutrition bars, which are based on the Mediterranean Diet.

Harris Teeter picks up solution for premenstrual breast discomfort
MENLO PARK, Calif. – BioPharmX on Tuesday announced that its product to address premenstrual breast discomfort, Violet iodine, will soon be available through 235 Harris Teeter stores by September 2015.
BioPharmX is expanding distribution methodically by rolling out to regional grocers to offer natural product to alleviate premenstrual breast discomfort.
"The Violet woman finds herself already shopping in grocery stores for personal hygiene and wellness products," stated Anja Krammer, president of BioPharmX. "Making Violet available in select grocers where she already purchases everyday essentials for her family just makes sense. This expansion is a natural next step in distribution for the company."
According to the company, iodine-deficient breast tissue is an underlying cause of fibrocystic breast condition. Multiple studies show that iodine supplementation reduces indications of this condition. And in the developed world, iodine deficiency has increased more than fourfold over the past 40 years, BioPharmX noted on its website. In the United States alone, iodine intakes dropped by 50% between 1971 and 2001. This is likely due to the fact that over the last several decades the amount of iodine found in food has decreased significantly while many substances that inhibit iodine uptake have become mainstream.
The US recommended dietary allowance for iodine is 150-290 micrograms for adults, while the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine has set the tolerable upper limit at 1,100 mcg. These guidelines may be inadequate to address certain health conditions because 60%-80% of a person’s iodine intake is absorbed by non-thyroidal tissues, such as breast tissue.
Clinical studies have shown that a daily regimen of molecular iodine can provide relief from cyclic breast discomfort. Molecular iodine has been used in clinical trials of 1476 women. A recent study showed that up to 74% of women experienced improvement in their breast discomfort, the company stated.
Q-In Medical Technologies launches SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid
WASHINGTON, N.H. – Q-In Medical Technologies earlier this month introduced its new SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid, an oral retractor that relaxes the tongue, minimizes the gag reflex and increases visibility of the throat in an effort to better examine the throat area and report these observations to a healthcare provider.
According to the company, SayAhh! is great for anyone with a strong gag reflex and is ideal for parents of school-age children who often struggle with knowing when to call the doctor. The device is recommended for use in children over the age of six.
In addition to the oral retractor and flashlight, the SayAhh! system offers an online health management resource and an App available in the Apple App Store. The SayAhh! system also includes an illustrated chart with clear pictures and descriptions of six common childhood throat ailments, providing the user a solid basis for comparison to what should be seen in a normal throat.
“The angles and curves provide true control of the tongue, which helps improve visibility, and the unique curvatures and retraction ridges on the underside help to minimize the gag reflex,” stated Gil Mettler, president Q-In Medical Technologies.
Created as an examination aid and not for the purpose of diagnosis, the SayAhh! package retails for a suggested $9.49. The SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid will be rolling out in select drug stores in late 2015, the company noted.
