Research and Markets: Global Medical Nutrition Market Is Expected To Grow At a Steady Pace, Clocking A CAGR Of 6.7 …

Posted: at 12:47 pm


DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Medical Nutrition Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The Global Medical Nutrition market includes a large number of small and large vendors. Groupe Danone S.A., Nestle Group, General Mills Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Pfizer Inc., Mead Johnson and Company, and Fresenius Kabi AG are some of the leading vendors in the market. The increasing number of mergers and acquisitions in the market is changing the market share composition frequently. In April 2012, Nestle acquired Pfizer's Infant Nutrition business for US$11.85 billion. The acquisition is expected to boost Nestle's presence in the Infant Nutrition market in China, since Pfizer had a major presence in that country.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team said: ''Vendors are leveraging their widespread distribution networks to increase their customer base. They are increasingly relying on online marketing and promotional activities to increase sales and brand equity. Through online marketing and promotional activities, more and more consumers are becoming aware of the positive health and nutrition benefits of probiotic products. Furthermore, online availability of medical nutrition products not only provides customers with easy access, but also helps vendors reduce their set-up, distribution, and operational costs. Thus, the increase in promotional activities by vendors is seen to have a positive impact on the Global Medical Nutrition market.''

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are Fresenius Kabi AG, Dairy Crest Group plc, General Mills Inc., HiPP GmbH and Co. Vertrieb KG, Hospira Inc., Hain Celestial Group, Nature's One, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory Inc., Perrigo Co.(PBM Nutrition), Pfizer Inc., Springfield Creamery Inc., and Terumo Medical Corp.

Complete Nutrition Unveils Comprehensive Line of Multivitamin Programs to Meet Growing U.S. Demand

Posted: at 12:47 pm


OMAHA, Neb., April 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fueled by a growing aging U.S. population and changes in consumer habits, the demand for multivitamins has reached an all-time high. To fill this need, Complete Nutrition, the nutritional supplement retailer known for its consultative approach to health and fitness, expands its general health offerings with TruForm, a new line of multivitamin packets formulated with condition-specific needs in mind.

Recent industry research shows that multivitamin usage has outpaced that of single vitamins, which has played a significant role in the demand increase. That trend is expected to continue in the foreseen future as the growing older population of Americans turn to multivitamins to maintain health and ward of age-related health issues. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans aged 65+ is expected to more than double between 2012 and 2060, from 43.1 million to 92.0 million.

Complete Nutrition developed TruForm by analyzing the leading vitamin packets on the market, and then enhancing their benefits by combining the most effective vitamins available for general health support with advanced blends of nutrients and herbs that boost metabolism and target the most common aging health concerns in men and women.

Designed for continuous daily use, TruForm multivitamin packets supply the full amounts of vitamins and minerals. TruForm also elevates metabolism levels to support ongoing weight loss through its Metabolism Boost Blend, a non-stimulant proprietary blend of high amounts of vitamins B12 and B6, which aid in energy production and metabolism, and key herbal extracts such as Wakame, Hawthorne, Cocoa bean, Holy Basil, Cayenne and CoQ10.

"We've taken the most effective vitamins, minerals and supplements and combined them in convenient all-in-one packets for health-conscious people of all ages and lifestyles," said Dr. Nicholas Rupcich, chief formulator for Complete Nutrition. "Taking TruForm multivitamin packets is like having an expert nutritionist guide your daily vitamin intake."

The TruForm line includes:

Complete Nutrition offers more than 200 exclusive general health, weight loss and sports nutrition supplements. Complete Nutrition's consultative staff -- made up of certified personal trainers, nutritionists and others experienced in health and fitness -- offers a one-on-one approach with expert advice to help customers reach their long-term health goals.

Spectra Systems Receives Notice of Allowance on Breakthrough Banknote Fitness Sensor

Posted: at 12:46 pm


PROVIDENCE, R.I., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Spectra Systems Corporation has received notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the company's patent entitled "CURRENCY FITNESS AND WEAR DETECTION USING TEMPERATURE MODULATED INFRARED DETECTION." Spectra will be working with its central bank customers to test this new fitness sensing technology in operational environments to validate its long term benefits in quality and cost savings in banknote replacement.

The patent relates to the use of heat generated infrared signals to produce high contrast images of banknotes which reveal new information on the levels of soiling and particularly void free tears and tapes which are beyond the resolution of current optical inspection technologies employed by central banks.

Today the primary methods for evaluation of the fitness of banknotes rely on various types of optical imaging to determine excess wear and damage. These high speed camera systems produce images for examination but are often incapable of detecting severe creasing, pinholes, and transparent tape used for repairing torn notes. Spectra's technology represents an entirely new approach to sensing wear and damage and given the high volume of banknotes in circulation; the slightest improvement can affect a dramatic benefit in quality and cost.

"We are pleased to once again be bringing breakthrough technology to the centuries old banknote industry," said Nabil Lawandy, CEO of Spectra Systems Corporation. "The accurate determination of banknote fitness is of critical importance for maintaining the quality of banknotes in circulation as well as controlling spending on replacement orders."

About Spectra

Spectra Systems, headquartered in Providence, RI, is a leading provider of machine-readable banknote authentication technology and transaction security software with manufacturing and engineering facilities in East Providence, RI and Vancouver, BC Canada. Spectra Systems is a traded company on the London Stock exchange since July of 2011.

Developing a brand that is locally owned and operated has really paid off for us, said J.P. Green, president of Axiom Fitness. Weve maintained our commitment to our members, programs and facilities and improved our membership experience, become more involved in our community, and our position as the Treasure Valleys premier fitness facility has created the opportunity to open a new club and expand our services to a larger population.

The new club will be part of The Village at Meridian under development by CenterCal Properties, LLC. The Village at Meridian is currently home to Big Als Meridian and Gordmans, among other businesses. Located at the intersection of North Eagle Road and East Fairview Avenue, The Village at Meridian has the highest daily traffic counts to be found in the State of Idaho, exceeding 90,000 vehicles per day, officials said.

There could not be a better, more convenient place for a fitness facility in the growing Meridian area. We are excited for this opportunity to continue to spread the Truth in Fitness in the Treasure Valley, said Green.

This club will offer amenities and services that are not currently available in the Treasure Valley, including a virtual active cycling room, interactive touch-screen cardio equipment with web access, and AxFlix, a theater room with cardio equipment that plays popular movies for exercisers to watch. The club will also have a lap swimming pool with panoramic views, and will introduce the new Relax Spa at Axiom, which will feature signatures treatments to support wellness needs, and alleviate the stress of a busy life.

Axiom currently has three locations in the Treasure Valley: Parkcenter, Fairview and Cole, and Meridian Road and Overland Road.

Tabata metes out fitness in short, repeated flashes

Posted: at 12:46 pm


By Dorene Internicola

NEW YORK (Reuters) - For people who are too bored or busy to spend an hour on a treadmill an exercise regime that was developed for athletes but is being taught in gyms may help to build fitness in less time.

The Tabata Protocol is a four-minute regime that measures fitness in seconds - 20 seconds of full-out work followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated eight times.

Although it can boost fitness levels of the healthy and time-pressed, experts say it is not for everybody and should not be done every day.

"Tabata is about all-out maximum effort," said Jessica Smith, a Miami-based fitness expert and Tabata coach, adding it is a good workout in a shorter amount of time, especially for people who don't have hours to spend at the gym.

"The intensity has to be high to get the benefits, but you don't want to do it too often."

The Tabata Protocol was developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata after the Japanese scientist conducted tests on two groups of athletes, comparing moderate intensity training with high intensity interval training (HIIT).

He found that short bursts of highly intense exercise were at least as effective as hours of steady moderate training.

While Tabata falls under HIIT, its preset work-to-rest ratio is more specific, and usually more demanding, than other interval workouts, which can encompass anything from boot camps to circuits.
