PregPrep launches line of supplements to support conception

BY Michael Johnsen

NEW YORK — PregPrep in May announced the launch of its doctor-formulated products to support conception across the retail pharmacy channel, including Walgreens and Rite Aid.

“We’re thrilled to be on the shelves of Walgreens and Rite Aid,” stated Marjorie Jaffe Goldner, PregPrep CEO. “PregPrep’s mission is to help women and men be proactive and kick start their conception, and these drug retailers are helping us reach our goals of being accessible to the masses.”

To date, the company has helped thousands of couples nationwide conceive and achieve their dreams of starting a family through affordable over-the counter products. The PregPrep product line Includes the Complete Conception, which contains VitaPrep and FertilPrep, two supplements that work together to provide the essential vitamins a woman needs all in an easy to use, one-month kit. Suggested retail price is $29.99.

Specifically, VitaPrep is a pre-conception vitamin that contains folic acid as well as vitamins D and B12, both of which are designed to support normal ovulation. And FertilPrep contains NAC, mucolytic and an antioxidant. NAC thins cervical mucus, helping facilitate transport of sperm to egg. FertilPrep works to help optimize the quality of cervical mucus to help facilitate conception, reduce free radical oxidation and support natural fertility function. A stand-alone one-month supply retails for a suggested $29.99.

PregPrep also has Male FertilPrep, a $29.99 supplement for him that supports sperm concentration, motility and morphology while promoting ideal conditions for reproductive health using a combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including vitamin C, folate, zinc, selenium, and n-acetyl cysteine.

Rounding out the product lineup are Nausea Relief, a blend of ginger root and lemon work to quell nausea with a pleasant, soothing flavor for $15.99 and Essential Balance Oil, a blend of lavender, bergamot and primrose that eases muscle tension and puts couples in the mood at a suggested retail price of $11.99.

Tampax to donate 1M tampons in 30 days

BY David Salazar

CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble’s Tampax brand is kicking off a major philanthropic initiative on May 28, which is Menstrual Hygiene Day, the company announced Friday. Within 30 days of May 28, the company will work with 20 social influencers to donate 1 million tampons to charities across the United States.

“It’s widely recognized that women and girls in developing countries often lack access to menstrual hygiene products, but what most Americans don’t realize is that this is true in our own backyard,” P&G marketing director for North American feminine care Amanda Hill said. “We believe that every woman and girl deserves access to feminine care products, and this donation is part of our continued efforts in supporting those in need.”

Tampax highlighted that 1-in-3 women live in poverty or on the brink of it in the United States, which can make accessing period products regularly difficult.

“The women behind Tampax share my vision in providing equitable access to menstrual hygiene, especially to those in need, and changing the narrative around menstruation,” PERIOD nonprofit founder Nadya Okamoto said. “I’m inspired by what Tampax is doing to shine a light on this issue and thankful that we can make access to period products a reality for even more people with periods.”
