Allergy Alert Labels from Name Bubbles for Extra Attention and Care When
Parents Aren't There
May is “Allergy Awareness Month” and the Name Bubbles Allergy Alert Label Pack helps keep
everybody in a child’s life aware of the extent of life-threatening allergies, and provides plenty of
space for contact phone numbers and guidelines about what to do in case of a sudden attack.
Saratoga Springs, NY (Vocus) May 4, 2010 -- Durable, vinyl Allergy Alert Labels from Name Bubbles helps
ensure that crucial information about a child’s allergies is always there, no matter where he or she goes or who is
watching them. They are specially designed to stay affixed to nearly any surface, from plastic to fabric to paper,
and they include key information that teachers, child-care givers, camp counselors and others might need to know
about when a child is away from mom and dad.



 “Name Bubbles Allergy Labels are specially designed to give peace of mind to the parents of kids with
life-threatening allergies,” said Michelle Brandriss, CEO and founder of Name Bubbles. “Knowing what my son
needed to stay safe while in the care of others, helped us design our labels to fulfill not only our family’s needs,
but also the similar needs of millions of families worldwide.”

 Designed especially for kids with serious allergies, these durable, vinyl, waterproof Allergy Alert Labels stay
firmly affixed to backpacks, lunchboxes, sippy cups, or any food container; plus, they focus extra attention on
what to do in case of an allergy attack on field trip forms, permission slips, and other school and camp documents.
Each label leaves room for four lines of information, so parents can include the types of allergies, directions about
what to do if an allergy attack occurs, and parent- and physician-contact phone numbers in case of emergency.

 The Name Bubbles Allergy Alert Labels ($32.88) includes 96 customizable labels, with four lines of information,
as follows:

 • 48 dishwasher-safe Allergy Alert Bubbles – Great for thermoses, lunch boxes and items that go through the
dishwasher, or sports equipment and needs to be waterproof.

 • 48 water-resistant Allergy Alert Stickies – These labels work on a variety of items, from toys to pencil boxes.
They also draw attention to a child’s allergies on paper documents like school forms and field-trip permission
slips.

 At the same time “mompreneur” Michelle Brandriss started to develop the Name Bubbles brand and suite of
label products, she and her husband learned the extent of her son’s food allergies to nuts, peanuts, and coconut.
She learned that even the wrong brand of gummi bears (those with coconut oil) could cause serious problems for
little Cooper.

 “I needed to be sure Cooper was safe when he was in others’ care, and that meant ensuring everybody who came
into contact with him knew his particular sensitivities to certain foods,” Brandriss said. “None of the existing
                                                                       Page 3/107

labels allowed me the space I needed to include all the information I knew would be important. Having the right
information available could be life saving for Cooper, so I designed labels for our needs knowing that this level of
personalization would be helpful for other children and their parents.”

 About Name Bubbles

track of toys, clothing, hand-held electronics, baby bottles, school uniforms, sports equipment, and much more.

Study Published in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's
Association Shows Algal DHA Improved Memory and Learning in Healthy
Adults Age 55 and Older
The Memory Improvement with Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Study (MIDAS) published online
this week in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association showed that
algal DHA improved memory function in healthy aging adults, providing a benefit roughly
equivalent to having the learning and memory skills of someone three years younger.
Columbia, Md. (Vocus) May 3, 2010 -- The Memory Improvement with Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) Study
(MIDAS) published online this week in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association
showed that algal DHA improved memory function in healthy aging adults, providing a benefit roughly
equivalent to having the learning and memory skills of someone three years younger.



MIDAS is the first large, randomized and placebo-controlled study demonstrating the benefits of algal DHA in
maintaining and improving brain health in older adults. The goal of MIDAS was to evaluate the effects of algal
DHA on cognitive outcomes in healthy elderly people with a mild memory complaint. The study was funded by
Martek Biosciences.

 MIDAS found that healthy people with memory complaints who took 900 mg algal DHA capsules for six months
had almost double the reduction in errors on a test that measures learning and memory performance versus those
who took a placebo, a benefit roughly equivalent to having the learning and memory skills of someone three years
younger. The DHA was well-tolerated and subjects taking the DHA also experienced a lower heart rate, providing
a significant cardiovascular benefit.

 The study population included 485 people age 55 and older at 19 U.S. sites who were considered to have
age-related cognitive decline. Age-related cognitive decline is defined as decline in cognitive functioning
consequent to the aging process that is within normal limits given a person's age. For example, individuals may
report problems remembering names or appointments or may experience difficulty solving complex problems.

 MIDAS study participants consumed an oral dose of 900 mg per day of algal DHA or a placebo (corn/soy) over
the course of six months. The primary endpoint was a cognitive test of memory and learning called the CANTAB
Paired Associate Learning (PAL). CANTAB PAL is an assessment of visual memory and new learning, and is a
useful tool for assessing patients with age-related memory loss.

 "The fear of memory loss and losing brain capacity looms large in the minds of boomers,” said renowned
neurologist and memory expert, Majid Fotuhi, M.D., Ph.D., author of The Memory Cure. "But as MIDAS
demonstrates in a clinical setting, there are some simple things you can do to maintain and even improve your
brain health as you age – like taking 900 mg of algal DHA every day.”

DHA is a structural omega-3 fatty acid in the brain that has been shown in epidemiological, preclinical, and now
                                                                       Page 6/107

in clinical research to support brain health. Yet, despite DHA's importance, most people eating a Western diet
consume low amounts of DHA.

 The source of DHA used in MIDAS was a vegetarian and sustainable algal DHA produced by Martek
Biosciences, and marketed to consumers under the brand name of life'sDHA™. Algal DHA supplements that will
enable consumers to easily achieve daily algal DHA intake comparable to the amount used in this study can be
found at major drugstores and retailers under the Algal-900™ product name and carrying the life'sDHA logo.

 "Up to one third of the more than 75 million baby boomers in the U.S. will experience a gradual decline in
cognitive function as they age,” said Dr. Edward B. Nelson, medical director for Martek and co-author of the
study. "MIDAS is significant because it shows for the first time that taking 900 mg of algal DHA daily may have
a very meaningful and important impact on cognitive function in the aging population.”

 "We have known for a long time based on the strong body of epidemiological research that DHA may play an
important role in cognitive function, particularly in the aging population,” said. Dr. Karin Yurko-Mauro, associate
director of clinical research for Martek and project lead of MIDAS. "With MIDAS, we now have clinical
evidence to indicate that 900 mg of algal DHA improves memory and learning in aging adults.”

 About DHA
 DHA omega-3 is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the brain and the
eyes and supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. There is a large and growing body of
scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages benefit from an adequate supply of DHA omega-3 in
their diets. Scientific reviews have highlighted the importance of DHA omega-3 in proper brain and eye
development and function, as well as its importance in cardiovascular health. Leading experts around the world
have noted that DHA is an important nutrient for health throughout the life cycle. Yet despite its importance,
Americans have among the lowest dietary intakes of DHA omega-3 in the world.

 Fish are often incorrectly thought to be the only source of DHA omega-3. However, life'sDHA offers a trusted,
vegetarian form of algal DHA that contains no oceanic pollutants or toxins. Fish are sources of DHA because of
the DHA-rich microalgae in their food chain; life'sDHA is derived directly from microalgae, a renewable,
sustainable source of DHA that does not deplete ocean resources, and is produced entirely in the U.S. in an
FDA-inspected facility. Today, life'sDHA is found in numerous foods, beverages and supplements for people of
all ages. It is also the only source of DHA used in U.S. infant formula and is included in more than 99 percent of
all formulas on the U.S. market, as well as in more than 350 brands of infant formula, nutritional supplements and
functional foods sold in over 75 countries worldwide. A dietary supplement designed to deliver 900 mg of DHA
daily is available at major drugstore chains and retailers under the Algal 900 DHA name and carrying the
life'sDHA logo.

 About Martek
 Martek Biosciences Corporation (NASDAQ: MATK) is a leader in the innovation, development, production and
sales of high-value products from microbial sources that promote health and wellness through nutrition. The
company is the world's leading provider of algal DHA omega-3 with its flagship product, life'sDHA, a sustainable

BioCosmetic Center Responds to Negative Discussions of Human Growth
Hormone
BioCosmetic Center responds to negative public perception of hormone balancing procedures
due to recent negative publicity regarding human growth hormone.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) May 3, 2010 -- BioCosmetic Center responds to the highly publicized negative view of
human growth hormone by releasing information regarding proper hormone balancing treatment. The Center
conducts extensive blood work on incoming patients to determine any hormone deficiencies. Prescription
hormone supplementation is utilized only when clinical deficiencies are obvious through extensive blood testing
and only after natural methods of stimulating increased hormone production to create the correct balance have
been implemented unsuccessfully.



 Eric Jantze of BioCosmetic Center clarified, “We do complete health evaluations. We look at all the various
levels including testosterone levels, insulin levels, thyroid levels, growth hormone levels and more. We don’t use
hormone treatment lightly. Clinical deficiency may result in hormone treatment, but some are quite rare.”

 While almost every person who comes in over the age of 30 needs some sort of hormone balancing many
hormone deficiencies that the general public sees as quick fixes are not actually a common problem. For instance
the highly requested human growth hormone is very rarely identified as clinically deficient, but the general public
continues to view it as an anti-aging solution.

 Professionals at BioCosmetic Center urge patients with slight to dramatic deficiencies (of human growth
hormone, testosterone, etc.) to implement natural solutions first. For instance proper nutrition and exercise can
increase the levels of human growth hormone substantially by balancing other hormone levels. A recent case
study that came through the Center achieved a 60 point increase through changes in diet and exercise alone.

 BioCosmetic Center offers all inclusive, personalized programs to aid individuals in obtaining their physical
goals. Programs can include any of the following: liposuction, Botox, weight loss, scar removal, bio-identical
hormones, dermal fillers, acne treatment, laser hair removal, and more.

Silver Diner Brings Food From the Farm to the Table
Local Restaurant Commits to Fresh and Local Foods for Healthier and Sustainable Living
(Vocus) May 4, 2010 -- Silver Diner, the local MD, VA and NJ restaurants offering families high- quality, healthy
meals in a fun atmosphere, announced a new era for its classic diner menu. For more than 20 years, Silver Diner
has been a part of the DC metro area’s history, serving home style favorites to local families. Now, the local icon
has updated its menu with local, farm fresh ingredients.



 “Silver Diner is taking the lead in providing locally grown, farm fresh, sustainable food for casual,
family-friendly restaurants,” said Ype Von Hengst , co-founder and chef at Silver Diner. “While some of the
area’s high–end, expensive restaurants are beginning to offer customers farm fresh foods it comes at a price- and a
very high one. We are one of the only multi-unit family restaurants to change its food distribution system with
such a wide array of local farms, making the same and even better quality foods available and affordable right at
your local community diner.”

 Silver Diner now boasts a food supply that is locally grown and raised, offering chicken, eggs, milk, produce and
even coffee shipped within a few hours, rather than days. With the close proximity, customers can taste the
difference in freshness and flavor. The menu also features new sections for those guests with healthy eating in
mind including “600 Calorie Entrées” and “Gluten Free” in addition to the classics customers love.

 “With a 48 hour turnaround, local produce is focused on taste, and there is a tremendous difference in flavor,”
said James McWhorter, vice president at Coastal Sunbelt Produce. “Typical transit from the west coast means
produce won’t be eaten for 6-7 days after its picked, but buying local means we can get produce to the Silver
Diner the day after it is comes off the vine and literally get milk from the cow to a milkshake in as little as two
days. And, in addition to the great taste, Silver Diner’s efforts are supporting the local economy and helping
prevent the community’s farmland from being lost to industry.”

 “Sustainable farming is fundamental to our mission and we are proud to maintain a farm that lives up to very
high standards. We grow our own feed, produce and bottle our own milk right here on our own farm and we do
not give our cows growth hormone injections. In fact, in 2008, we were awarded the National Family Farm
Environmental Excellence Award,” said Ron Kreider, president and CEO at Kreider Farms, a 3rd generation
family owned and operated farm. “Working in partnership with Silver Diner, we are able to support another local
company that upholds our high standards for today’s families. The investment of resources Silver Diner has put
into bringing fresh products from the farm straight to their tables makes them unique among family restaurant
groups.”

 While there is a difference in taste, in health and in local economy, customers will still enjoy family friendly
pricing, though the change did not come cheap. In fact, the new farm to table approach has raised Silver Diner
food costs by nearly three-quarters of a million dollars. The team at Silver Diner sees this new move as an
investment in the health of local business and the health of their customers and has not raised its prices. From
                                                                      Page 12/107

creating local jobs to reinvigorating the local economy, the new menu benefits everyone in the community.

 According to Ype, “The options are there for everyone no matter what you choose to eat, so even if you choose a
burger you can count on hormone free meat to be the healthiest it can be.”

 About Silver Diner
 With restaurants throughout Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey, Silver Diner is the preferred local restaurant for
families seeking high-quality and healthy choices. The Diner offers classic American Favorites prepared with
fresh and local ingredients. Guests get a high quality family dining experience in a retro-cool diner atmosphere.

Loving Husband Discovers a New Natural Menopause Treatment for Wife’s Hot
Flashes
Millions of women suffer from symptoms related to menopause – namely, hot flashes and night
sweats. The search for safe and effective natural menopause remedies and treatments is nothing
new. A Midwestern inventor named John Bender recently discovered a new plant-based
menopause treatment and is marketing it under the trade-name FemFlax™ .
(PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- John never considered himself to be an expert on women’s health, especially in regard
to menopause treatments or symptoms. However, for the past several years he has been totally absorbed with the
topic and has been in pursuit of a safe and effective, all-natural means of supporting women suffering from hot
flashes and night sweats.

 It all started several years ago when his wife, Debbie, began suffering from the occasional, albeit irritating bout
with hot flashes and night sweats. It wasn’t long though before these episodes became much more regular and
pronounced.

 John realized “She was hardly sleeping at night due to night sweats, and with fifteen or more hot flash episodes
per day, these menopause symptoms were really beginning to take a toll on her.”

 Like so many couples before them, they sought out explanations and possible treatment plans, John through
intense Internet investigation and Debbie through consultations with the family physician.

 Almost immediately, they disregarded the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bio-identicals, due in
part to Debbie’s family history, her age – but most importantly, the increased risk of heart disease and cancer.
John summed up the general feeling at the time; “This thing is already on the verge of life-altering, why jump to
life-threatening?”

 Following the shift away from HRT “we tried almost every kind of natural menopause treatment plan, potential
cure, or over-the-counter menopause support imaginable, but nothing seemed to work or was considered safe for
long-term use” said John.

 Vowing to move forward and realizing that menopause sufferers can easily display hot flash and night sweat
symptoms for ten years or more, John eventually stumbled upon a small and not so widely publicized study done
several years ago on a group of Minnesota women, using flaxseed.

 Intrigued by this finding, John said “Finally, a prestigious and well-recognized research facility, The Mayo
Clinic, has hit upon an all-natural, plant-based (flaxseed) treatment plan that actually seems to diminish the hot
flash and night sweat symptoms associated with menopause!”

While showing promise, some health care professionals considered the Minnesota trials to be inconclusive.
Concerns remained relating to excessive fiber, dose delivery, potency and over-all effectiveness.

                                                                      Page 15/107

 Working tirelessly with nutritionists, health care professionals, chemists, laboratory analysts, growers and
manufacturers, John was eventually able to isolate an all-natural, highly concentrated, flax-based product with
seven to ten times the hot flash and night sweat stopping power than that administered to the Minnesota test
group.

 John’s new product brought Debbie complete night sweat and hot flash relief within three days. While Debbie’s
symptoms may have been categorized as severe (with as many as fifteen to twenty hot flash and night-sweat
episodes per day/night) Debbie is hot flash and night sweat free, and has remained so for more than a year
(without altering the dose).

 What started as a love story and a real desire by a husband to see his life-mate of twenty-five years free of
oppressive menopause symptoms, eventually evolved into a family business. The brand name FemFlax™ was
later decided upon and the product offering has been trademarked (using this name) for use in the U.S. and
abroad.

 Debbie continues her FemFlax™ regimen, as do many other women seeking relief from (menopause related) hot
flashes and night sweats.

 John recently remarked; “It’s strange in a way, thinking back about how this thing evolved…the best thing, by far
though, has been the look on my wife’s face and fact that she is comfortable and enjoys life again…that and the
knowledge that we are helping so many other women to do the same.”

ACT Certification Launches the First Free Certification Program for Personal
Trainers
The Athletic Certification Training Commission (ACT) is excited to announce the launch of the
world’s first free certification program for individuals who are interested in becoming personal
trainers. Most personal trainer certifications cost $400 to $800—with some programs priced at
thousands of dollars—which makes the new cost-free certification a valuable opportunity for
professional trainers.
(PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- The Athletic Certification Training Commission (ACT) is excited to announce the
launch of the world’s first free certification program for individuals who are interested in becoming personal
trainers. Most personal trainer certifications cost $400 to $800—with some programs priced at thousands of
dollars—which makes the new cost-free certification a valuable opportunity for professional trainers.

 “ACT brings a high-quality education and certification program to a demographic market that previously could
never afford to invest in a personal training career,” Media Manager David Williams said. “More than 1000
people participated in our program in our first month.”

 ACT is an online personal trainer certification program with instructors and staff members that work with
individuals worldwide. Its new certification is uniquely designed to allow people to explore a career in personal
training—without making a large financial commitment. Students can download a 315-page textbook full of
practical knowledge to prepare themselves for the personal trainer certification exam. They can also take
advantage of online classes featuring live instructors, study tools such as practice exams, flash cards and
discussion forums, and unlimited email support from ACT’s staff of instructors. While the textbook and
certification exam are completely free, there is a $65 fee for the online classes, extra support and study tools.
“This is still far cheaper than any other certification program,” Williams said.

 ACT’s online courses use Web conferencing technology that enables students to watch the instructors conduct
live presentations. Students can participate in the classroom through their telephone or computer speakers. They
can ask questions during class or submit questions to their instructor by email. Class schedules vary to allow as
many students as possible to attend. However, all classes are recorded, so they can be downloaded and watched at
students’ convenience.

 Most certification programs use a self study format and offer no instructor support, according to Williams. But
the ACT Personal Trainer Certification program gives individuals an unprecedented opportunity to complete
instructor-led courses from the comfort of home. “Our mission is to change the way personal trainers get educated
and to put the emphasis on education and practical learning rather than memorization and test taking,” he said.
“By improving the quality of certified personal trainers, we will improve the entire industry’s reputation.”

 By offering access to instructors and a strong educational component, ACT is providing a unique alternative in
the marketplace. The company was established by a group of personal trainers who were dissatisfied with the
state of the certification industry. They felt existing certification providers were charging exorbitant prices and
providing very little education, resulting in under-qualified personal trainers in the job market. However, ACT is
                                                                      Page 18/107

taking an aggressive, people-oriented approach to improving the situation. “We are out to change the world rather
than to collect profits,” Williams said.

UniqueU Medical Weight Loss Success Requires an Expansion and Move to a
Larger Location
In an effort to keep up with increased business and new patient traffic, the UniqueU Medical
Weight Loss Program will be moving into a bigger office location on April 26.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- The continued success of the UniqueU Medical Weight Loss Program
is requiring the office to relocate to a larger facility away from their existing location on Pine Road in Kenwood.
The office now occupies a shared space with the two doctors who introduced UniqueU to the Cincinnati area, Dr.
Dan Buchanan, DC and Dr. James Lutz, MD. Both are excited about the growth of this cutting-edge diet
phenomenon.

 The new office will be located at 4760 Red Bank Road, Suite 238, just off the Red Bank Road exit from I-71.
One of the benefits of the additional space will be a dedicated staff specializing exclusively to the needs of the
dieter.

The UniqueU Medical Weight Loss Program was first introduced to the Cincinnati area in January of this year.
The acceptance and growth of the program has been incredible.

 This four-phase, multi-faceted program begins with a medical examination, blood work and an EKG to insure
patients are medically fit. With ground-breaking appetite suppressants, light exercise and unique use of the
hormone HCG, this program has been called a “medical miracle diet.” For both women and men who typically
have excess weight on their belly, butt and thighs, the HCG targets stored fat, not muscle. The results are rapid
weight loss, decreased appetite and an amazing outcome for the typical diet dropout. An added element of support
and education continues once the ideal weight has been reached.

 “We are thrilled to have to expand to a larger location,” said Dr. Dan Buchanan. “The patients we see each week
are continuing to lose weight and they tell their friends and family about the long-term benefits of the UniqueU
Medical Weight Loss Program. We are growing because of so many satisfied patients.”

 While HCG diets are not a new thing, the combination of medical supervision, supplements, appetite
suppressants and education all work together to provide a whole life-changing program for people who have
struggled to lose weight and failed. This combination is what many the patients believe makes the difference in
their success. The quick weight loss experience by most patients eliminates the frustration of sticking to a diet for
a long period of time. It is a win-win situation for health and overall well-being.

 For additional information on this program or to schedule an interview with either of the doctors, please call
513-984-2700. UniqueU Medical Weight Loss Program’s new location will be 4760 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati,
OH 45227, effective April 26, 2010.

Social Support Offers Better Return Than Healthcare Reform for Business
Lowering medical costs and improving productivity is within reach for organizations investing in
social support, concludes new white paper.
(Vocus) May 3, 2010 -- As financial reform dominates the media and healthcare reform recedes into the
background (for now), organizations face an ongoing challenge — how to change unhealthy employee habits that
affect sick time, productivity, and medical expenses. One of the most effective ways to engage employees in
workplace wellness programs is having them work with colleagues, family, and friends to reach their goals.



 Backed by more than 40 studies, Social Support: Impact on Health and the Bottom Line highlights the benefits of
how social support can affect behavior change. “Employers are in a prime position to create an environment of
social support,” said Dean Witherspoon, Health Enhancement Systems President and Founder. “The data is clear:
when individuals are accountable to a team or get encouragement from others, it has a big impact on their
well-being — the more support they have, the greater chance they’ll achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

 As outlined in the paper, there are different levels of support — and each can help participants be successful,
which is good news for the bottom line. “With a strong social support network, studies show individuals can
enhance performance, reduce stress, boost self-efficacy, and be better at problem solving,” adds Witherspoon.

A supportive, inspiring cultures helps organizations, workplace wellness programs, and participants all to thrive.

 Health Enhancement Systems is a health promotion company serving organizations in North America and
throughout the world. In addition to numerous white papers, they have created more than 20 workplace wellness
campaigns including Walktober, Great American Fitness Adventure, 10K-A-Day, Get Fit on Route 66, Feel Like
a Million, Spring Into Motion, and NutriSum: Healthy Weight for Life.

Scilabs Nutraceuticals Inc., Files Multimillion Dollar Suit Against Naturade for
Fraudulent Business Practices
Scilabs Nutraceuticals, a dietary supplement manufacturer, has filed suit against Naturade, a
division of NNC LC, for the alleged misappropriation of trade secrets, fraud, and breach of
contract.
(PRWEB) May 3, 2010 -- Scilabs Nutraceuticals, a dietary supplement manufacturer, has filed suit against
Naturade, a division of NNC LC, for the alleged misappropriation of trade secrets, fraud, and breach of contract.
The complaint, case number 00341089, filed in Orange County Superior Court, Santa Ana, seeks to hold
Naturade liable for damages.

 As stated in the case, in late 2008 Naturade partnered with Scilabs to develop working formulas for thirteen
Naturade brand products. According to court documents from Richard Robinette, CEO of Naturade, these
products were distributed to over 25,000 major retailers nationwide including Sam’s Club, The Vitamin Shoppe,
vitacost.com, iherb.com, UNFI, Tree of Life, Stop n Shop, Publix, Meijer, and a “host of mid-size and small
chains…”. In December of 2009, after the investment of hundreds of hours of skilled research and development
on the part of Scilabs, Naturade abruptly severed its contractual ties. Naturade went on to work with other labs
and reverse engineer Scilabs’ formulas. In doing so, Naturade allegedly not only breached established contractual
agreements, but also violated Scilabs’ right to ownership of its own intellectual property.

 According to Paul Edalat, CEO and Chairman of Scilabs, Naturade and Robinette allegedly conspired to defraud
Scilabs. In the suit, Scilabs contends that Robinette fraudulently induced Scilabs to do business with promises of
longevity and large volumes of production, despite its recent bankruptcy. “(Robinette) had intentions to use
Scilabs to rebuild Naturade as a brand and move business elsewhere,” Edalat states. “Theft of intellectual property
cannot be taken lightly; we will battle this and we will prevail.” In order to accommodate the anticipated growth
in business volume Scilabs asserts that it was not only forced to cease pursuing new customers, but to make large
monetary and time investments to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

 Furthermore, Scilabs contends in court documents that Naturade is unfairly competing by misappropriating
Scilabs' formulas. What was once a method of advancement in nutraceutical research and development has turned
into a tool for propagating widespread fraud and unfair competitive practices. While the Food and Drug
Administration does not regulate what can be considered “knock-off” dietary supplements, a food in the eyes of
the FDA, Section 403 of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act , protects consumers from misbranded foods. As
Edalat states, “In an industry experiencing rapid growth, practices such as reverse engineering of proprietary
formulas should be illegal. While it harms the image of the industry, the consumer is the one who will suffer in
the end.”

One Doctor’s Cure for Childhood Obesity, Bringing About a Revolution in the
Way Families Eat
Dr. Marta Katalenas, a Round Rock, Texas, pediatrician, has developed an easy meal plan
solution for childhood obesity that parents can use at home to help their children control weight,
and the whole family can enjoy. Her effort dovetails with that of the Let’s Move! campaign
started by the First Lady Michelle Obama to resolve a U.S. health crisis affecting children
nationwide.
(PRWEB) May 1, 2010 -- Dr. Marta Katalenas, a renowned Round Rock, Texas, pediatrician, has launched a
local crusade called “The Prescription for Healthy, Happy Children–From Scratch,” to help families solve
childhood obesity, weight and health issues at home. Her effort dovetails with that of the Let’s Move! campaign
started by the First Lady Michelle Obama to resolve a U.S. health crisis affecting children nationwide.



 According to First Lady Michelle Obama, childhood obesity rates in the U.S. have tripled over the past three
decades. For the first time in history, American children may face a shorter lifespan than their parents because
obesity can lead to many preventable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and
asthma. Dr. Katalenas, founder of the Pediatric Center of Round Rock, has seen an increase in these medical
problems for her young patients and has answered the call of the First Lady to help in her campaign. She is taking
her own crusade of educating parents out of her practice--right into the community of Round Rock, Austin and
surrounding metropolitan areas.

 Childhood overweight issues and obesity are serious health problems facing families today and many parents feel
overwhelmed. They share with Dr. Katalenas their frustration about conflicting or partial information and the fact
that they don’t know how to prepare healthy food. “For as long as we have been aware of the obesity epidemic in
our country, we have been told what not to eat,” said Dr. Katalenas. “Different experts throughout the years have
given advice about calorie counting, about reducing the fat content of the diet and about what we should avoid,”
says Dr. Katalenas.

 She feels that our fast-paced society created quick meals and snacking on-the-go of high calorie, low nutrient
foods which leads her to a solution present in what we already know. Having grown up in Spain, the doctor has
incorporated what has been shown to be successful from her European culture in her “prescription” solution for a
cure of the epidemic. A recent study of over 20,000 people of Mediterranean origin concluded a lower incidence
of cardiovascular disease and obesity, and increased longevity. The study could not pinpoint a single ingredient in
the diet as responsible for the beneficial effects of the diet. “It is because there is no single ingredient, but a
life-style and eating habits combination that is possible to learn and reproduce in our society,” said the doctor.
“They don’t do it because they know better; it is their culture to enjoy home-cooked meals with their family.”

 In the U.S., most pediatricians find that lack of parental involvement is one of the greatest barriers to treating
childhood obesity, according to a study published in the journal Pediatrics. “If we change the way we eat meals,
we can change our society,” said Dr. Katalenas. “Good eating habits and cooking skills transfer from parents to
                                                                      Page 32/107

their children over time, creating a revolution in our community which can spread throughout our culture.” What
is the precise simple prescription? Easy, home cooked meals with your family using a menu developed for busy
families with little experience in cooking. No calorie-counting, no fuss—and a wonderful experience of being
together for the whole family.

 Marta Katalenas, M.D. is a native of the town of Oviedo, in northern Spain. A board certified Pediatrician, she
believes the cooperation of the entire family is essential in the fight against childhood obesity. Dr. Katalenas is the
Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics of UT Medical Branch, the Adjunct Clinical Instructor of the UT School
of Nursing and provides care for newborns at the Round Rock Hospital and North Austin Medical Center. She
founded the Pediatric Center of Round Rock where she oversees a nutrition management program designed to
help children and families make the lifestyle changes necessary to promote and maintain health.

 Dr. Katalenas is available to speak to your employees or group about how to prevent and solve childhood obesity.
Visit http://www.DrKatalenas.com to obtain recipes for her menu plan and to subscribe to her blog where she
offers frequent advice for parents on this subject and raising children.

The Diet Solution Program: Popular Online Weight Loss Program is Revised to
Include More Metabolism Boosting Meals
Certified nutritionist and exercise specialist Isabel De Los Rios created The Diet Solution
Program to help dieters take control of their weight, their health and their life. After figuring out
which foods boost metabolism naturally, De Los Rios was able to drop the thirty pounds that for
years had weighed down her petite frame. She has kept the weight off for ten years and has
helped 30,000 other people throughout the world do the same.
Florham Park, NJ (PRWEB) May 1, 2010 -- Certified nutritionist, author and exercise specialist Isabel De Los

for Disease Control and Prevention. According to a recent study conducted by researchers at the University of
Texas’ Medical Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, more than ½ of U.S. women considered overweight
by American standards are obese by international standards.

 Isabel De Los Rios can sympathize with the challenges the overweight and obese face. Just ten years ago, she
struggled to take off the thirty extra pounds that had for years had weighed her down. She diligently worked to
count calories, cut carbs and eat only low-fat “healthy” foods without results. Frustrated but determined, De Los
Rios began learning about how food works in the body and its impact on the body.

 Eventually, De Los Rios identified the foods that boost metabolism naturally and was soon able to drop the thirty
pounds. She has kept those pounds off for the past ten years developed The Diet Solution Program . Her program
has helped tens of thousands of people throughout the world lose weight and keep it off.

 The Diet Solution Program is an all natural approach to weight loss. It offers the solid, scientifically backed
information that De Los Rios stands behind as a Certified Nutritionist and Exercise Specialist.

FDA World-wide ‘Import Alert’ for Packaged Raw Seafood: Many Non-U.S.
Firms Affected According to FDAImports.com, LLC
For Vacuum Pak or Modified Atmosphere Packages
Columbia, MD (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- All firms around the world that export to the USA vacuum packaged
or modified atmosphere packaged raw seafood are automatically subject to Import Alert #16-125, “Detention
without Physical Examination of Refrigerated Vacuum Pak or Modified Atmosphere Packaged Raw Fish and
Fishery Product” (IA 16-125). Under IA 16-125, FDA automatically detains all shipments from firms that are not
on an FDA ‘Green List’. The alert was designed by FDA to prevent fatal botulism poisoning (Clostridium
botulinum), which can be a risk associated with raw seafood shipped in packages that prevent the seafood from
oxygen exposure (anaerobic conditions). Since September 2009, FDA had only placed 46 foreign firms (from
around the world) on the ‘Green List’ for Import Alert #16-125. According to Benjamin L. England, of
FDAImports.com, LLC, this is because “…botulism is a serious threat. It’s a threat to consumers and a threat to
the legitimacy of FDA. Protecting America’s food supply is their [FDA’s job. Botulism can be fatal, especially
to infants. Therefore FDA issued an exceptional worldwide import alert to address the agency’s concerns. This is
one of the few Import Alerts you want your firm’s name on. There are about 50 firms on the ‘Green List’ (those
who are not subject to DWPE), nobody else will be permitted to export raw seafood in anaerobic packaging to the
USA.”

 Importers of vacuum packaged (Vac-pac) and modified atmosphere packaged (MAP) raw fish and fishery
products are automatically subject to IA 16-125. To be permitted to ship to the U.S. at all, foreign processors
must first get on the ‘Green List’ or get their “Green Ticket”. FDA and Customs Agents detain all refrigerated
(not frozen), raw fish in Vac-pac or MAP packaging. “Not even discussing the legality of this alert, this is a case
of being declared guilty until you prove you are innocent.” stated Mr. England, “It’s not impossible, it’s just
costly. Getting on the Green List is the only ‘way through’ in this case.”

 Food importers and foreign food manufacturers and processors will face a more vigilant and more heavily funded
FDA in 2010 and 2011. FDA’s budget was increased in 2010 by about 20% over previous years and the current
administration is seeking an additional 19% increase in FDA funding for 2011. Due to all of the pressure and bad
press FDA has received regarding the risks associated with imported food, a significant part of those funds will be
spent on imported food safety enforcement.

 If you want to obtain your IA 16-125 ‘Green Ticket’, or you currently have entries subject to detention, or are
concerned about your firm’s FDA compliance, let FDAImports.com, LLC show you ‘the way through.”
FDAImports.com, LLC is a consulting firm that can help you get your ‘Green Ticket’ and gain access to the U.S.
market. FDAImports.com, LLC, can also advise and correct any other violations that have caused your shipments
to be detained and get your products back on the market. Don’t let a lengthy detention derail your business plan
and wreck your reputation. FDAImports.com implores manufacturers who are in one of the above mentioned
situations, or who need assistance in getting on the ‘Green List’, to contact them promptly for advice tailored to
your particular situation.

IBS Affects from 10% to 15% of the U.S. Population, Says the International
Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders
IBS affects people of all ages, even children. About two of every three sufferers are female. Fiber
supplements such as psyllium can be an effective treatment for the discomfort and pain
associated with IBS.
Easton, MD (PRWEB) April 27, 2010 -- April is IBS Awareness Month. People who suffer from abdominal pain
or discomfort and their bowel habits have changed, they might have a disorder known as irritable bowel
syndrome, or IBS. IBS affects from 10% to 15% of the U.S. population, says the International Foundation for
Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD). IBS affects people of all ages, even children. About two of every
three sufferers are female.

 Key symptoms of the disorder are pain or discomfort in the abdomen (the area below the chest and above the
hips). Other symptoms have to do with bowel habits, such as diarrhea or constipation. Peppermint oil and fiber are
effective treatments. Dietary fiber can improve mild constipation. Soluble fiber soothes and regulates the
digestive tract; it helps to stabilize intestinal contractions resulting from the gastro colic reflex and helps in both
conditions of diarrhea and constipation. Soluble Fiber also helps form a gel and creates bulk as it passes intact
through the gut, preventing diarrhea. On the other hand, soluble fiber also effectively relieves constipation by
softening and pushing through impacted fecal matter, making Konsyl Original All-Natural Psyllium Fiber an
excellent form of soluble fiber for IBS patients with chronic diarrhea or chronic constipation.

 Add fiber to a diet slowly, over a period of several weeks. If bran causes bloating or excessive gas, the IFFGD
suggests a fiber supplement such as psyllium, taken with plenty of water.

Go to the Konsyl website for more information about IBS and treating it with a psyllium fiber supplement.

 About Konsyl Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
 Konsyl Pharmaceuticals, Inc. produces high quality, all natural fiber supplements and digestive aids for improved
intestinal and digestive health. Konsyl products address a variety of digestive issues, such as Constipation,
Diarrhea, IBS and Diverticulosis. For over 45 years, doctors have recommended 100% natural Konsyl products

From the Cornfields of Iowa to the Neon Lights of Las Vegas
Aeroroot Selected to Compete in Fortune’s 10th Annual Battle of the Corporate Bands
Norway, IA (Vocus) April 30, 2010 -- While it’s not exactly the same as American Idol, for the Iowa band
Aeroroot, it’s a shot at the top. Fortune magazine and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum just
announced that Aeroroot is one of the 16 semi-finalists for the Tenth Annual Battle of the Corporate Bands.

 Formed at Frontier Natural Products Co-op five years ago, the band will be traveling to the Western Regional
competition held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, on Saturday, May 22. Other regional
competitors include corporate bands from companies such as Deloitte Consulting, Chesapeake Energy, and
Northwestern Mutual.

 “This is certainly one case where we want what happens in Vegas, not to stay in Vegas,” says Clint Landis, lead
vocalist and Chief Marketing Officer for Frontier. “Our goal is to reach the final competition at the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, in October.”

 Aeroroot submitted its CD entry to the contest in March and a panel of judges from the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame and Museum selected the 16 semi-finalists bands. Last year, which was Aeroroot’s debut at the competition,
the band made the semifinals and went on to compete at the finals. “Now that we know what to expect, nerves
shouldn’t be as much of an issue for us this time,” asserts Brett Karminski, lead guitarist and brand manager.

 “We formed Aeroroot during a lunch break in Frontier’s on-site organic café,” explains Steve Krusie, drummer
and public relations director. “Our intent was only to provide entertainment for the upcoming holiday party. But
Frontier employees encouraged us to stay together. Since then, we’ve been playing primarily at fundraisers,
including the American Cancer Society, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Flood Them with Love and
many others.”

 Rounding out the quartet of rockers is Tracy Tunwall, formerly Frontier’s VP of Human Resources and currently
assistant professor at Mt. Mercy College. Playing bass guitar for Aeroroot, Tracy keeps the groove going while
Brett, Clint and Steve are constantly trying to one-up each other with stage-presence shenanigans. “It’s not easy,
but somebody has to be focused on the music,” jokes Tunwall.

 The band’s name comes from the herb arrowroot, one of the natural products Frontier produces. The spelling was
changed as a nod to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Aerosmith. Aeroroot will perform five songs during their
20 minutes in front of the judges. Meanwhile, the band is practicing in the Landis’ garage to prepare for the Las
Vegas semi-finals.

BioCosmetic Center Cites Findings Indicating 50% of Tattooed Individuals
Seek Removal
BioCosmetic Center cites findings indicating 50% of individuals who have one or more tattoos
eventually seek tattoo removal services.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 28, 2010 -- BioCosmetic Center cites findings indicating 50% of individuals who
have one or more tattoos eventually seek tattoo removal services (American Dermatological Survey 2002).
According to The National Geographic News (April 2000) 15% of Americans were tattooed; this is the equivalent
of 40 million Americans. A Harris Poll conducted in 2003 indicated 36% of 25 to 29 year olds have one or more
tattoos.



 The popularity of the tattoo is unquestionable. The reasons behind tattoos are many and they are varied. They are
often used to commemorate events, as a memorial to the deceased, as a sign of inclusion in particular groups, and
often as sheer decoration.

 But the consistency of the eventual desire to have the tattoo removed is also undeniable. Many mistakenly
believe that pain is a must for tattoo removal. But undergoing tattoo removal through a reputable cosmetic center
utilizing the latest laser technology and appropriate medications actually provides painless tattoo removal.

 Eric Jantze of BioCosmetic Center responded, “Tattoo removal can be one of the most painful things an
individual goes through in their life…if they go to the wrong place. It can be so painful that many never complete
the process. Here at BioCosmetic Center we offer complete tattoo removal and it’s pain free. The sad thing is that
some people believe that the pain is just part of the process that they have to endure…and they don’t.”

 BioCosmetic Center offers all inclusive, personalized programs to aid individuals in obtaining their physical
goals. Programs can include any of the following: liposuction, Botox, weight loss, scar removal, bio-identical
hormones, dermal fillers, acne treatment, laser hair removal, and more.

Provo, UT (Vocus) April 28, 2010 -- Tahitian Noni International (TNI) received the company’s third Novel Food
approval from the European Commission on Food Safety. Now, not only do noni juice and noni leaf have Novel
Food approval, but also noni concentrates and noni puree have authorization to be sold within the European
Union. In terms of the total number of Novel Food approvals, Tahitian Noni International shares an equal number
with Danone and is outnumbered only by the five individual approvals granted to the Unilever Group.



 Committed to Science and Quality from Day One
 Approval procedures for Novel Foods take time, money, and require significant scientific research assuring the
safety of the product in question. It is not uncommon for an application to take five years or more being reviewed,
before approval is granted.

 Kevin Asay, Tahitian Noni International’s Managing Director in charge of Regulatory Affairs and Quality
Assurance, says: “14 years after the founding of our company, we are in a position to compete with Danone in the
category of approved Novel Food applications. We take pride in this achievement and are confident that it stems
from our commitment to science and quality from day one.”

 Noni is now a Full-Fledged Novel Food
 With this third approval, Tahitian Noni International now holds Novel Food approval for all food categories
relevant to their wide variety of products. In 2003, the first approval was issued for the use of noni juice as a
novel food ingredient in Tahitian Noni™ Original, then marketed as Tahitian Noni™ Juice in Europe. This
approval was followed in 2008 by the authorization of noni leaves as a novel food ingredient for the preparation
of other products, including tea. This latest approval now gives Tahitian Noni International the ability to use noni
concentrates and noni puree in products as well.

Currently, Tahitian Noni International is focused on the worldwide product launch of its new product line of
Tahitian Noni® Bioactive Beverages™ introduced in the USA at the end of February 2010. A graduated launch in
Europe is scheduled to start at the end of May 2010.

 About the Company
 Tahitian Noni International is a global, research-driven bioactive products company that was the first to introduce
the health benefits of the noni plant—a bioactive-rich, adaptogenic plant, containing iridoid compounds—to the
world outside of Tahiti. Tahitian Noni International is the leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing,
and marketing of noni-based bioactive products including beverages, beauty, and weight loss lines. Tahitian Noni
International has a presence in over 70 markets worldwide, and is the world-wide leader in bioactive beverages.

declining health of our nation by providing healthier snacking alternatives to on-the-go individuals at schools,
hospitals and businesses. The company’s mission is to support improved eating practices by offering healthy

business management, experience, including successes with many companies ranging from start-up ventures to
public companies. With the merger, Vend Natural will offer new, dedicated technical service and general
support telephone lines for immediate response trouble-shooting on machine operations.

William H. Carpenter, Jr., managing partner of Vend Natural Middle Atlantic and now President of Vend Natural.
 “Our combined company is in a strong position to ensure that our nation’s students, workers and community
members have access to fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy snacking alternatives that transform how America
thinks about snacking,” said Carpenter.

 Vend Natural’s state-of-the-art machines offer a market-customized assortment of natural and organic snacks and
beverages. Always looking to provide the healthiest options possible, Vend Natural recently announced an
agreement with Del Monte Fresh Produce to offer an assortment of Del Monte’s fresh-cut fruits and vegetables in
its machines as well.

Success is No Secret to This Fitness Machine Company Despite the Economy
Rowbike.com has combined a total body workout with an outdoor fitness bike and the results are
in: Fitness enthusiasts are flocking to Rowbike.com and sales have quadrupled this quarter from
the previous quarter. Rowbike is growing by leaps and bounds and there are now thousands of
Rowbike owners worldwide.
(PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -- Rowbike.com has combined a total body workout with an outdoor fitness bike and
the results are in: Fitness enthusiasts are flocking to Rowbike.com and sales have quadrupled this quarter from
the previous quarter. Rowbike is growing by leaps and bounds and there are now thousands of Rowbike owners
worldwide.

 Created by Scott Olson, the inventor of Rollerblades, Rowbike gives the rider twice the workout in half the time.
Imagine getting a full body workout while being able to enjoy the outdoors. That’s the beauty of Rowbike.
Rowbike works the upper body, core and lower body all while providing a great cardio workout. Because of the
fully adjustable 7-speeds, Rowbike is very versatile and can take on significant hills. One of the reasons Rowbike
has been recognized as one of the best overall fitness machines is because benefits include muscle building,
toning, stretching, improved posture and an amazing calorie burn.

 'Shape', 'Outside' and 'Avid Golfer' Magazine have all contributed to the success of Rowbike with extremely
positive reviews. Shape Magazine’s Marissa Stephenson says, “Take a ride on a cross between a rowing
machine and a recumbent bike and you’ll burn 50 percent more calories than you would on an ordinary
two-wheeler.”

 In addition to print reviews, Rowbike was recently featured on The Gadget Show in the UK. Many US local
news affiliates including KABC in Los Angeles, California have featured in depth pieces on Rowbike as well.

 Rowbike was invented over a dozen years ago by Olson whose passion for inspiring outdoor exercise is evident:
“I invented the Rowbike as an exercise machine to provide total body conditioning with the speed and excitement
of a bicycle, inline skates or downhill skis. It's a fitness machine that will take you where you want to go.” He
says. And, Rowbike owners agree with Olson’s fervor – many become so enthusiastic about their rapid
transformation in health and fitness , the testimonials seem to come into Rowbike Headquarters on a daily basis.

 Rowbike owners are more than customers, they become part of a family. Take for instance, Dave Olson (no
relation to inventor Scott Olson) a passionate Rowbike owner; About five years ago Dave, on his own accord,
designed a new cam for the Rowbike that ultimately doubled the speed of the Rowbike. The “Dave Cam” is now a
part of the manufacturing process and is used on every Rowbike being shipped today. Dave donated his designs to
Rowbike and was pleased he could make the Rowbike experience a better one for all customers.

 Rowbike’s commitment to never cut corners is possible due to their consistent innovation . Every new generation
of Rowbikes have improvements small and large all due to the collaboration of staff suggestions and customer
feedback. “Customer service and integrity of our product have always been equal in importance. We see Rowbike
as the verb and not the noun. Owning a Rowbike is a life changing experience and we see that happen on a pretty
                                                                      Page 62/107

consistent basis” says Rowbike VP of Marketing, Karen Levy.

 Levy is aware that Rowbike ownership is prohibitive for some – the cost is just north of $1,000. “Rowbike is a
solid, highly engineered exercise machine. There’s never a question of value from customers. However, being that
our mission is to expose as many people as possible to fitness, we have just rolled out a financing program. Low
monthly payments have allowed our company to cast a wider net, no doubt. And, frankly we couldn’t be happier
about that.”

All-Natural Alternative to Artificial Sweeteners Added to Swanson Premium
Line
Swanson Health Products introduces PureLo® Lo Han Sweetener; a natural, calorie-free
alternative to artificial sweeteners.
Fargo, ND (Vocus) April 29, 2010 -- Looking for an all-natural alternative to artificial sweeteners without the
bitterness of stevia or the calories of honey? Swanson Health Products’ Swanson Premium PureLo® Lo Han
Sweetener is a natural, calorie-free sweetener made from the concentrated extract from Lo Han, a traditional
Chinese fruit also known as Monk Fruit.



 Monk Fruit is grown exclusively in the southern mountains of China and has been used for centuries as a
sweetener and as a traditional Chinese medicine. Now, it has found its way out of the Asian markets and into the
mainstream as a calorie-free way to sweeten. It's perfect for coffee and tea and can even be used for cooking and
baking. Because Lo Han can be up to 200 times sweeter than sugar, Swanson Health Products has tempered the
natural sweetness by blending PureLo® with natural inulin so it's ready to use in recipes or at the table.

possible. Swanson Health Products, located in Fargo, ND, offers the highest quality vitamins, supplements and

Sixteen New Firms Placed on 'Import Alert 99-08' for Importing Processed
Foods Containing Illegal Pesticide Residues, According to FDAImports.com,
LLC
On April 8, 2010, U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) added sixteen (16) new firms to
Import Alert #99-08, "Detention Without Physical Examination Of Processed Foods for
Pesticides". (IA 99-08). FDA has jurisdiction and enforcement power over most processed
foods, whether foreign or domestic. FDA is now requiring these 16 foreign food processors to
provide a valid certificate of analysis, showing that their products do not contain illegal residue
of certain pesticides.
Washington, D.C. (Vocus) April 27, 2010 -- On April 8, 2010, U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) added
sixteen (16) new firms to Import Alert #99-08, "Detention Without Physical Examination Of Processed Foods for
Pesticides". (IA 99-08). FDA has jurisdiction and enforcement power over most processed foods, whether
foreign or domestic. FDA is now requiring these 16 foreign food processors to provide a valid certificate of
analysis, showing that their products do not contain illegal residue of certain pesticides. According to Benjamin
L. England, of FDAImports.com, LLC, regarding pesticide residues, "If the EPA (US Environmental Protection
Agency) hasn't established an acceptable tolerance level for a pesticide, it can't be used. FDA's Center for Food
Safety & Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) will prevent the importation. Even those pesticides that are permitted can't
be found in excess concentrations. This is poison and FDA tightly regulates it. A brand can be severely damaged
by simply being associated with pesticides. Getting off this alert is a must for any firm doing business in the
U.S.”



 Hundreds of companies from all over the world are presently listed on Import Alert #99-08, for shipping
processed foods found to contain illegal pesticide residues. FDA has already rejected hundreds of shipments for
this violation. Firms placed on IA 99-08 expose their shipments to Detention without Physical Examination
("DWPE”)—which means their products are automatically detained at the Port of Entry. In the alert, FDA
indicates that all subsequent shipments from listed firms must provide a valid certificate of analysis proving that
the products do not contain the illegal pesticides. "A certificate of analysis is going to cost firms upwards of
$2,000 per shipment,” stated Mr. England, "The world economy is slumping, so competition is more fierce than
ever before. Firms stuck on an Import Alert are at a serious competitive disadvantage.”

 FDA has been beefing up inspection at the ports over the last two years. In 2009 and 2010, Congress increased
FDA's budget an unprecedented 19%. A large portion of this appropriation was dedicated to food safety
enforcement at the ports of entry. Therefore, greater scrutiny is placed on importers and many more foreign firms
are being added to Import Alerts, including IA 99-08. Firms that avoid being placed on Import Alerts maintain a
distinct competitive advantage.

 If you or your firm is interested in getting ahead of the competition by staying clear of FDA scrutiny, let
FDAImports.com, LLC show you ‘the way through.” Similarly, if you currently have shipments subject to DWPE
for alleged pesticide contamination, or have been listed on IA 99-08, FDAImports.com, LLC can help.
                                                                      Page 67/107

Jarrow Formulas, Inc. Launches First-Ever Interactive Probiotic Profile at
All-New www.JarrowProbiotics.com
Jarrow Formulas has launched an all-new Interactive Probiotic Profile, which gathers important
information about a responder’s Lifestyle and Body Systems in order to identify the most suitable
probiotic products and strains for overall health maintenance.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2010 -- Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas®, a nutritional supplement
formulator, marketer and leader in probiotic research and development, has launched an all-new Interactive
Probiotic Profile, which gathers important information about a responder’s Lifestyle and Body Systems in order
to identify the most suitable probiotic products and strains for overall health maintenance.



 The 3-step questionnaire has been designed by Jarrow Formulas’ research and nutrition professionals to garner
feedback on a consumer’s current health status, wellness goals, and any areas of concern to help determine which
probiotic strains would be most beneficial for body chemistry, lifestyle attributes, and/or probiotic deficiencies
that may or may not be present.

 Jarrow Formulas’ newly designed probiotics website, www.JarrowProbiotics.com, also contains in-depth
information on the history of probiotics, the health benefits of the various strains, and the very latest on clinical
uses. The site features comprehensive product information for all of Jarrow Formulas’ probiotic products as well
as relevant studies, science news, media information and Jarrow Formulas’ entire library of product and special
event videos that can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/JarrowFormulas.

 Jarrow’s line of high-quality probiotic supplements includes the #1-selling probiotic product in the U.S.,
Jarro-Dophilus EPS® and the all-new Ideal Bowel Support (IBS) 299v, which has been shown in clinical trials to
survive and colonize the digestive tract and alleviate intestinal discomfort in 95% of the patients studied.

 The new site design and Interactive Probiotic Profile are the brainchild of Jarrow Formulas’ Marketing
Department members Ara Soghomonian and Rory Lipsky and the IT Department’s Javier Martinez and Brian
MacDonald who together have crafted a user-friendly profile that explores age, gender, health concerns, and
associated lifestyle markers to recommend probiotic strains that best match the health needs and lifestyle
attributes of the responder.

 “We’re hoping our probiotic customers really take advantage of all the hard work we’ve poured into the
interactive profiler,” says Ara Soghomonian, a member of the Jarrow Formulas Marketing Team. “It’s a
wonderfully informative tool that they themselves customize to help educate them on which Jarrow probiotics
best fit their needs.”

Jarrow Formulas is a nutritional supplement formulator and marketer founded in 1977 and incorporated in 1988.
The company markets its products throughout the United States and internationally in more than 20 countries in
Europe, Asia, Israel and Latin America. The company offers a complete line of nutritional products that includes

Breakthrough in HCG Weight Loss Therapy
A breakthrough in HCG Diet Therapy has just been developed. Experienced weight loss
physicians have raised the HCG diet caloric daily allowance from 500 to 800 calories and
created a complete revision of Dr. Simeons original HCG diet protocol written 50 years ago.
The physician’s goal with this new HCG diet protocol was to achieve higher standards, and
promote a safer and more tolerable program for their patients.
(PRWEB) April 27, 2010 -- Experienced weight loss physicians from Inches and Pounds, LLC have re-designed
and modernized Dr. Simeons original HCG diet protocol. The most significant revision which has been the center
of controversy for decades among physicians and critics is the 500 calorie daily allowance. The new protocol
which can be viewed at www.inchesandpounds.com suggests that an 800 calorie daily diet restriction, combined
with 6 weeks of HCG medication, 30 minutes a day of low impact cardiovascular exercise and use of a vitamin/
mineral supplement may show similar weight loss results and may be tolerated more effectively by most patients.
Additionally, increasing the calorie standard from a VLCD (very low calorie diet) to an LCD (low calorie diet)
may encourage more physicians to incorporate this diet method in their practices. Dr. Connie Odom says, "The
revised protocol may help reduce the risks of headaches and fatigue due to the higher daily caloric allowance."
Other key highlights on the revision include: an increase in the allowable fruit and protein servings from 2 to 3
daily, use of a multi-vitamin/ mineral supplement and infusing the HCG medication with B12 (methylcobalamin).




Revised HCG Diet Protocol Inches and Pounds:

Effectively is an LCD (low calorie diet); is safer than the original

Healthy Diet From Down Under To Help Brits Shape Up For Summer
Boots UK launches exclusive weight loss programme with diet expert Tony Ferguson as Britons
prepare to wave goodbye to winter weight.
(PRWEB) April 27, 2010 -- World famous diet expert Tony Ferguson is collaborating with Boots to help fight the
obesity epidemic in the UK and bring a new range of healthy eating solutions to the High Street.

 Overindulgence at Christmas, cold weather comfort eating, a lack of resolve to stick to New Year diets and the
annual Easter chocolate binge may have all helped to stretch waistlines over the first few months of this year.
Boots UK is delighted to announce that help is at hand as a revolutionary new diet plan, the Tony Ferguson
Weightloss Programme, lands on the UK high street exclusively available at selected Boots stores. The launch of
the diet is just one of the ways Boots UK is responding to the increasing levels of obesity in the UK.

 The Tony Ferguson Weightloss Programme, which has already proved successful in Australia with over 600,000
Australians helped to lose weight fast through the programme, is a simple, affordable, flexible diet. It has been
developed by pharmacists and nutritionists based on sound nutritional science and the latest thinking on food
psychology. The programme offers a wide range of delicious and healthy food and healthy snacks.

 Furthermore, the one-off fee also includes access to a Tony Ferguson trained Boots Healthcare Advisor plus
24-hour freephone access to the Tony Ferguson Support Centre to provide round the clock support to help you to
lose weight effectively. There is also a wealth of information and advice at www.TonyFerguson.co.uk.

 Boots Nutritionist, Vicky Pennington said: “Losing weight isn’t about shedding pounds as quickly as possible,
it’s about sticking to a sensible diet that gives you the energy and nutrients you need. The Tony Ferguson
Weightloss Programme combines two nutritionally balanced meal replacements with one healthy meal every day.
This method can help customers to learn healthy eating principles that will ultimately aid their transition to
everyday healthy eating and weight control.”

 This year in particular, the long cold winter has taken its toll on our waistlines as well as our heating bills with
many people exceeding the typical winter weight gain of around half a kilogram. However, the research suggests
that weight gain over the winter months may not simply be down to a lack of physical activity, comfort eating and
Christmas excesses, but the way our bodies react during colder temperatures.

 For instance, scientists have discovered an increase in the activity of enzymes that promote the storage of fat
during the winter, while the amount of fat burned for energy is reduced. , This means that over-indulgence and
comfort eating over the winter is less likely to be counteracted by physical activity and excess weight can be
harder to shift.

 Furthermore studies show that levels of serotonin, one of the body’s feel good chemicals, naturally fall in the
winter and when serotonin is in very short supply, your brain is tricked into believing you need to eat. Researchers
even believe there is a direct link between obesity (due to overeating) and decreased brain serotonin levels. There
is also evidence to show that you'll find it harder to control your appetite in the winter than the summer.4
                                                                      Page 84/107

 The Tony Ferguson Weightloss Programme is aimed at helping people shift the excess weight that may have
been gained during winter months and will be available in larger Boots stores from 21 April 2010. For a limited
period, life-long membership to the programme will cost just £10.

 Chris Ferguson, one of the pharmacists who developed the programme, added, “We are thrilled to be able to
extend the success of the Tony Ferguson Weightloss programme to the UK and believe the partnership with Boots
UK will help to make our effective weight loss programme accessible to everyone. We know from experience that
support and education is critical for lasting weight loss and feel the combination of our programme with trained
Boots Healthcare Advisors will help achieve great results for anyone trying to lose weight.”

 For more information on weight loss and healthy eating, the Diet Health Centre on www.Boots.WebMD.com
combines information from leading UK health resources including the British Medical journal and NHS Choices
as well as offering up-to-date, practical help and advice.

BioCosmetic Center Notes Seasonal Increase in Photofacial Treatments
BioCosmetic Center notes the seasonal increase in photofacial treatments.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 25, 2010 -- BioCosmetic Center notes the seasonal increase in photofacial treatments.
With summer on the horizon and the Valley of the Sun preparing for another up close and personal relationship
with the heat of summer in the desert many are becoming increasingly aware of the sun damage that has already
been done.



 Eric Jantze of BioCosmetic Center said, “Sun damage is there. It’s there regardless of age. It’s there in the young
people and the older people. The beauty of photofacial treatment is that it actually makes someone look younger
by taking the photo damage out.”

 Photofacial treatments reduce fine wrinkles and change the appearance of wrinkles. Wrinkles are white inside so
if the pigment and the sun damage are taken off it looks like the wrinkles are gone. Successful photofacial
treatment is completed after 3 to 5 treatments. Photofacials are popular amongst the 25+ demographic.

 BioCosmetic Center suggests that residences of the Valley of the Sun take extra precaution in order to avoid sun
damage as much as possible:

1.    Avoid sun exposure in the middle of the day when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
2.    Wear sun block when you will be in the sun.
3.    Wear good sunglasses that block a lot of the sun’s rays.

 Sun damage is unavoidable, but by taking care individuals can avoid a large portion of the sun damage they are
destined for throughout their life time.

 BioCosmetic Center offers all inclusive, personalized programs to aid individuals in obtaining their physical
goals. Programs can include any of the following: photofacials, liposuction, Botox, weight loss, scar removal,
bio-identical hormones, dermal fillers, acne treatment, laser hair removal, and more.

Leslie DeeAnn, Trivani International Owner and Co-founder, Calls on 12 Years
Experience to Create Toxin-Free Product Line
Leslie DeeAnn, owner and co-founder of Trivani International, the world’s first purpose-driven
network marketing company, calls on more than 12 years of chemical manufacturing experience
to shape Trivani’s “Do No Harm” personal care product line.
Springville, UT (PRWEB) April 25, 2010 -- Leslie DeeAnn, owner and co-founder of the philanthropic network
marketing company Trivani International (http://www.trivani.com), relies on more than 12 years of experience in
the chemical manufacturing industry to shape the company’s personal care products line. Dee formerly owned a
chemical production company and worked regularly with dangerous chemical toxins like propylene glycol and
sodium lauryl sulfate. After selling her chemical company, Dee created a highly successful line of toxin-free,
eco-friendly, hair, skin and personal care items which all adhere strictly to her “Do No Harm” philosophy.

 “Many of these toxic agents build up in the kidneys, liver and other parts of the body, causing serious health
problems over time, but these harmful agents make their way into thousands of products because they’re cheap
ingredients to use,” Leslie DeeAnn says. “When I created the "Do No Harm"
(http://www.trivani.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=102&Itemid=96) line, I committed
myself 100% to not only creating and developing products that never use any of the 287 chemical agents known
to cause health problems, but also do exactly what they promise to do. Paying for quality, safe ingredients is more
than worth it.”

 Trivani’s “Do No Harm” line includes everything from shampoo to vitamin supplements, all using toxin-free,
environmentally-friendly packaging and ingredients. A significant portion of the sales revenue is used to support
the Trivani Foundation, a sister non-profit organization (http://www.trivanifoundation.org), which uses the money
to build schools, provide surgeries and fund businesses in impoverished places across the globe. Trivani has
rescue operations underway in six countries including Asia, Africa, Latin American and the U.S. They expect to
expand to other parts of the world this year.

 Leslie DeeAnn believes that “Do No Harm” products do much to reverse the effects of the accumulation of
toxins in the bloodstream which results from using products with harmful ingredients. She says, “Did you know
that 60% of toxins in the blood were absorbed by the ski? By the time a woman leaves the house, after showering
and using shampoo and conditioner, using skin cream and putting on makeup, she’s introducing 29 or 30 harmful
ingredients to her body that day. With Trivani, we’re willing to spend more to create products that completely free
of harmful preservatives, irritants, allergens and carcinogens.”

 About Trivani International
 Trivani is the world’s first Purpose Marketing® company, using the power and profit of network marketing to
provide ongoing humanitarian aid around the world. Trivani’s unique business model consists of two distinct but
closely intertwined entities: Trivani International and the Trivani Foundation. This business model helps Trivani
fulfill its humanitarian goals through three main missions: Purpose, Health, and Prosperity.

Great Harvest Bread Co. Hosts National Fundraiser on April 23
Proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS)
Great Harvest Bread Co. will host a One Day, One Dollar, One Goal fundraiser on Friday at
select bakeries to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) cancer research and
honor Mauri Booton, a former owner of the Des Moines, Iowa bakery, who recently died of
leukemia, as well as those across the country who have suffered or died from cancer.
Dillon, Mont. (Vocus) April 23, 2010 -- Great Harvest Bread Co. will host a One Day, One Dollar, One Goal
fundraiser on Friday at select bakeries to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) cancer research
and honor Mauri Booton, a former owner of the Des Moines, Iowa bakery, who recently died of leukemia, as well
as those across the country who have suffered or died from cancer.

 Check with your neighborhood Great Harvest Bread Co. to see how to become involved or support this worthy
cause.

 “Cancer is a disease that takes too many of our loved ones away,” said Great Harvest CEO Mike Ferretti. “When
Mauri was diagnosed with leukemia more than five years ago, he became a powerful spokesman and fundraiser
for the LLS. He has inspired bakery owners across the country to continue his outstanding efforts to find a cure
for cancer,” added Ferretti.

The nationwide fundraising goal is $100,000. The donations will be presented to the LLS by Mauri’s wife Mary
Hellerstedt, who is participating in the LLS Team in Training “Rock n’ Roll”half-marathon in San Diego in June.
A small portion of proceeds will also fund a Mauri Booton Memorial Scholarship.

 According to Ferretti, Great Harvest Bakery owners want to raise enough money to assure #1 is printed on Ms.
Hellersted’s race jersey. The more money she contributes through the One Day, One Day, One Goal campaign,
the lower her number on her running shirt.

 “The Great Harvest mission statement simply states – be loose and have fun, bake phenomenal bread, run fast to
help customers, and give generously to others,” said Ferretti. “Mauri Booton exemplified the mission statement in
so many ways, especially when it came to giving generously. I invite customers and community members to show
generosity through a one dollar donation on Friday. Many bakeries have been hosting the fundraiser all week.
Together we can all make a difference.”

 Founded in 1976 in Great Falls, Mont., Great Harvest Franchising, Inc. has more than 200 bakeries located
throughout the nation including Alaska and Hawaii. Great Harvest is known for handcrafted breads made with
freshly ground whole wheat from the high plains of Montana. Today the neighborhood bakeries create an array of

Whimsical Tahitian Noni International YouTube Video Yanked after
Competitor Complains
The Iridoid Difference Video is Still Available on Other Websites
Provo, UT (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- Tahitian Noni International (TNI) announced that XanGo’s parent company
DBC, LLC, asked that YouTube pull a Tahitian Noni International video about its new bioactive beverages. The
lighthearted video portrays multiple superfruit juices trying to attack the stable iridoids of Tahitian Noni®
Bioactive Beverages™. True to life, the superfruit juices fall short. TNI responded to the action, and fully expects
that the video will be available within ten business days—the time allotted for the assertion to be reviewed. In the
meantime, the video continues to have wide exposure on other major websites like Yahoo, Flickr, Facebook, and
Vimeo.



 The Iridoid Difference video was created to inform people—in an interesting and fun way—about the difference
between the flavonoids and carotenoids that are found in most superfruit juices, and the 12 unique iridoids that are
found in noni fruit. An important difference between them is the fact that the flavonoids and carotenoids in most
superfruit juices degrade rapidly after processing, pasteurization, and in excessive light and storage
periods–whereas the iridoids in Tahitian Noni Bioactive Beverages remain stable for years after processing. This
means that you continue to get the promised benefits of Tahitian Noni Bioactive Beverages for the entire shelf life
of the product.

 “Interesting that a competitor asked YouTube to pull the video,” stated Jeff Wasden, vice president of Global
Marketing for Tahitian Noni International. “Such a strong reaction to the video has brought more attention to it,
and actually increased the interest and viewership. TNI has responded to YouTube, and the video should soon be
back up.”

To see the video that competitors don’t want consumers to see, go to www.TNI.com/difference.

 About the Company
 Tahitian Noni International is a global, research-driven bioactive products company that was the first to introduce
the health benefits of the noni plant—a bioactive-rich, adaptogenic plant, containing iridoid compounds—to the
world outside of Tahiti. Tahitian Noni International is the leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing,
and marketing of noni-based bioactive products including beverages, beauty, and weight loss lines. Tahitian Noni
International has a presence in over 70 markets worldwide, and is the world-wide leader in bioactive beverages.

BioCosmetic Center Sees Increase in Need for Hormone Balancing
BioCosmetic Center sees increase in need for hormone balancing. The majority of incoming
patients aged 30 and above need some type of hormonal adjustment. Expert hormone balancing
ensures that clinical deficiencies are treated with natural methods being accessed first and
patient requests for hormones that are not deficient do not override test results.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- BioCosmetic Center sees a noted increase in the need for hormone
balancing. The majority of incoming patients aged 30 and above need some type of hormonal adjustment. Expert
hormone balancing ensures that clinical deficiencies are treated with natural methods being accessed first and
patient requests for hormones that are not deficient do not override test results. Interfering with hormone levels
without solid evidence of deficiency can have drastic results; some even worse than the patient’s original
symptoms.



 Hormone balancing is an effective treatment for many individuals who find themselves with negative health or a
decreasing quality of life. The cause of the recent increase in hormone imbalance amongst the general public is
not yet clear. Industry professionals continue to speculate, but there seem to be many contributing factors in
today’s society that are leading to a greater number of middle aged individuals in need of help keeping their
hormones balanced.

 Some factors experts attribute to causing or helping to cause the issue include: lack of sleep, bad nutrition, lack of
exercise, high stress levels, chronic stress, etc. Eric Jantze of BioCosmetic Center responds, “It seems as if
everyone is being forced to work twice as hard for half the money in today’s economy. And that is hard on the
systems of the body. By using a very thorough and very exact method of testing hormone levels we’re able to
alleviate a lot of symptoms that are having a negative effect on the day to day lives of patients through accurate
hormone balancing.”

 Attempting to adjust hormone levels without very thorough testing prior to treatment can have a lasting negative
effect on the body. One common mistake being made is the introduction of testosterone shots as treatment for
symptoms without first confirming that testosterone levels are deficient. Common symptoms include that can be
effectively treated with testosterone shots include: depression, low energy, decrease in muscle mass, low sex
drive, constant tiredness, and/or loss of strength. These symptoms are indicative of low testosterone levels, but
they can also be a symptom of many other health conditions. So verification through extremely thorough and
accurate testing is a necessity prior to any hormone treatments.

 BioCosmetic Center offers all inclusive, personalized programs to aid individuals in obtaining their physical
goals. Programs can include any of the following: weight loss, liposuction, Botox, weight loss, scar removal,
bio-identical hormones, dermal fillers, acne treatment, laser hair removal, and more.

Denver Youngster Issues Earth Day Challenge: Kids Give Up Fast Food to
Improve Health, Save the Planet
Colorado Connections Academy Middle-Schooler Launches “Spring into Healthy Eating
Challenge”
Denver, CO (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- It’s not easy to convince kids to give up fast food, but twelve-year old
Koa Halpern wants to do just that. The Connections Academy middle-schooler is so committed to educating his
fellow youngsters about healthy eating that he started his own organization, Fast Food Free,
www.fastfoodfree.org, when he was just ten years old. Koa’s goal is to ‘school’ kids on the nutritional,
environmental and animal welfare impacts of eating fast food, and to encourage kids to take action personally,
and in their schools and communities. To that end, Koa has issued a challenge to kids everywhere – the “Spring
into Healthy Eating Challenge.” The challenge, which kicks off on Earth Day 2010, asks kids to sign a pledge to
give up fast food for two weeks.



 Koa hopes to attract thousands of students to visit his website and inspire them to take the pledge by showing the
difference that one person can make by giving up fast food for two weeks. His teachers at Connections Academy
were so impressed by his initiative, they sent out a letter inviting the school’s 1,200 students to participate. Word
spread to other Connections Academy schools, and students around the country are now taking the pledge.
Having the support of Connections Academy means Koa will be able to communicate his message of eating
healthy while protecting the environment to the school’s 20,000 students nationwide.

 Koa, a dedicated environmentalist and vegetarian, had never been interested in eating fast food. But when a
Korean foreign exchange student living in his home developed a desire for the drive-thru, Koa’s curiosity was
sparked. He embarked upon an independent study project and thoroughly researched everything about fast food
from the health risks to animal rights violations to the impact on the environment. From that research, a
youth-run, start-up organization was born.

 “The mission of Fast Food Free is to reduce the consumption of fast food through education and community
awareness, resulting in healthier people and a better world,” reads Koa’s website. “Fast Food Free is important to
me because of the health risk fast food poses to people, animal rights violations, and the effects the fast food
industry has on the environment. Personally, my number one concern is how the fast food industry impacts the
world we live in. I don’t want kids growing up obese, I think it's awful for chickens to be packed in cages with no
room to move and it's irresponsible to cause the deforestation of any country (like Costa Rica) just to feed the
world fast food.”
 Koa designed his website from scratch, teaching himself HTML and hand-sketching the graphics. He assembled
a board of directors, composed entirely of kids who share the mission of eliminating fast food from our diet and
hopes to become an official nonprofit organization – as soon as he is old enough to legally apply.

 Attending Colorado Connections Academy allows Koa to balance and blend his education with his real-world
interests. The virtual school supports students like Koa who want to pursue outside activities, like the arts,
                                                                     Page 100/107

Outside Magazine Names LeBootCamp as One of America's Best Places to
Work in 2010
LeBootCamp today was named to Outside magazine’s third annual “Best Places to Work” list.
LeBootCamp.com - the #1 French diet online - ranked No. 8 out of 50 selected companies, a
reflection of high standards in their work environment and work ethics.
San Francisco (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- LeBootCamp.com today was named to Outside magazine’s (
www.outsideonline.com) third annual “Best Places to Work” list. LeBootCamp ranked No. 8 out of 50 selected
companies, a reflection of high standards in their work environment and work ethics. The full list and related
story is published in the May issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands today.



 Outside’s “Best Places to Work” list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association
(outdoorindustry.org) and Best Companies Group (bestcompaniesgroup.com). The year-long selection process
began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of non-profit and for-profit organizations with at least
15 employees working in the United States. Participating companies were then sent confidential
employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation,
policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. All of the results were
analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 50 companies that strive to enhance their
employees’ enjoyment of active endeavors, and environmental and social involvement.

 "Here at LeBootCamp, we believe in a friendly work environment with 100% flexible schedules," said Valerie
Orsoni, CEO & Founder of LeBootCamp. "We pride ourselves in providing our employees with the best work
environment possible, and this approach extends to our clients as well, in exceptional customer service. As the
CEO of LeBootCamp.com, I am truly honored that our company has been ranked No.8 of Outside's Best Places to
Work for 2010."

 "These 50 companies come from a vast array of industries but they're all following the same enlightened path,"
said Michael Roberts, Executive Editor of Outside. "They're successful businesses in a challenging economy
precisely because they support a proper work-life balance. They know that benefits like on-site gyms and fitness
classes, reimbursements for ski passes and sports racing fees, and support for community service efforts during
work hours make their employees happier and thus more productive."

 www.LeBootCamp.com is the #1 French diet online, which helps clients achieve their weight loss goals with
daily nutritional and fitness advice, weekly meal plans, gourmet recipes, a community forum, and most
importantly, constant communication with a certified weight loss coach.

 Previously featured on Good Morning America, and most recently in Food & Wine, LeBootCamp has received
high acclaim from the media worldwide, and is available in Europe, the USA, the UK, and Australia, with more
versions soon to be released in other languages.

                                                                     Page 103/107

Tahitian Noni Extra Sales Exceed Expectations
Extra Includes the Broadest Spectrum of Iridoids of any Tahitian Noni Bioactive Beverage
Provo, UT (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- Tahitian Noni International (TNI) announced that sales of Tahitian Noni®
Extra™ have exceeded all expectations, and that it has been a challenge to fill all of the product requests for the
new bioactive beverage. Extra is unique in that it provides the broadest range of iridoids of any Tahitian Noni®
product–with 16 different iridoids.



 Tahitian Noni Extra delivers a potent blend of noni, blueberry, and olive iridoids that boosts energy and
endurance, supports joint health, aids recovery, promotes heart health, enhances the immune system, and helps
protect against oxidative stress. Extra is ideal for people with advanced needs and provides 60 mg of iridoids per
60 ml serving.

 Noni, blueberries, and olives all contain powerful bioactive compounds that posses a wide range of potential
health benefits. Chief among these compounds are iridoids, which have been studied for over 50 years and include
a broad range of research. The combination of these 16 different iridoids makes Extra one of the most powerful
bioactive beverages available today. And unlike flavonoids or carotenoids in so-called “superfruit” juices, iridoids
are extremely heat and time stable. The iridoids in Tahitian Noni® bioactive beverages have been shown to retain
their potency and bioactivity long after processing, pasteurization, and storage.

 Tahitian Noni Extra is loaded with over 150 phytonutrients that also make it a powerful adaptogen. Adaptogens
take a personalized approach to safely benefit the health and function of your body’s systems. These compounds
help living things maintain a natural, healthy balance.

 “This new bioactive beverage could possibly be the healthiest drink on earth,” stated Jeff Wasden, vice president
of Global Marketing for Tahitian Noni International.

 About the Company
 Tahitian Noni International is a global, research-driven bioactive products company that was the first to introduce
the health benefits of the noni plant—a bioactive-rich, adaptogenic plant, containing iridoid compounds—to the
world outside of Tahiti. Tahitian Noni International is the leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing,
