Industry News: Persona™ Launches Vitamin Packs Pro Portal for Health Care Practitioners

 

Persona Debuts New Portal at the Cleveland Clinic 16th Annual Dr. Roizen's Preventative and Integrative Medicine Longevity Conference, December 7-9 in Las Vegas

SEATTLE, Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Persona™, the leading personalized vitamin program, today introduces Vitamin Packs Pro™ powered by Persona™, a physician portal that gives health care practitioners a dedicated nutritional assessment and dietary supplement analysis for their patients. Vitamin Packs Pro is designed to support a patient's holistic health by giving physicians a quick and easy way to cross-reference more than 650 prescription medications to avoid risky drug-nutrient interactions. The new portal debuts at the Cleveland Clinic 16th annual Dr. Michael Roizen's Preventative and Integrative Medicine Longevity Conference. The Conference, held at the Four Seasons, Las Vegas, from December 7-9, is designed for all medical professionals with an interest in applying preventative lifestyle and integrative medicine approaches into their practice.

Vitamin Packs Pro™ powered by Persona™ is a physician portal that gives health care practitioners a dedicated nutritional assessment and dietary supplement analysis for their patients.

"We've heard from our medical advisory board and physicians who specialize in integrative medicine that they are looking for ways to provide a more holistic experience for their patients. We've listened, and are now delivering," said Jason Brown, founder and CEO, Persona. "We are excited to bring a personalized vitamin and supplement program to physician's fingertips and into patient's overall wellness regimen."

How it works
Through its new portal, Persona is creating an unparalleled platform – giving medical professionals a tool to create or review vitamin and supplement recommendations for their patients. The first of its kind, Vitamin Packs Pro, seamlessly integrates vitamin and supplement regimes for the physician and the patient. Practitioners log into a personalized dashboard to guide patients through Persona's established nutritional assessment or input custom vitamin and supplement recommendations through the Prescription Pad app. Both modes retain Persona's unique drug-nutrient interaction identification.

Developed in collaboration with Dr. Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic and chair of Persona medical advisory board, Persona's proprietary algorithm uses inputs about lifestyle and nutrition habits while examining more than 650 potential medication interactions to recommend supplements that are personalized for each customer. Persona is the only vitamin subscription service that asks about medication use to help identify possible drug nutrient interactions. While the majority of multivitamin supplements deliver the recommended dietary allowance (RDA), which is only enough to avoid vitamin deficiencies, Persona delivers science-backed therapeutic levels of vitamins and minerals that support optimal health.

"We are pleased to have Persona demonstrate its capabilities of Vitamin Packs Pro with medical professionals attending this year's Cleveland Clinic Preventive and Integrative Medicine Longevity Conference," said Michael Roizen MD, program director of this Cleveland Clinic course and chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic. "As you know from my writings and role as chair of the Medical Advisory Board of Persona, I believe it is important to consider vitamins and supplements as a part of a person's comprehensive wellness plan. I am impressed by the ease in which the portal allows practitioners to review or input recommendations. That is groundbreaking for me, but the visitors to the exhibit will see it and hopefully decide for themselves."

Industry News: ORIG3N Unveils FUEL™, New DNA Assessment Test to Identify Your Unique Nutrition Needs

 

 

FUEL™ Genetic Test Launches at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Boston

BOSTON, Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Diet and nutrition have never been a one-size fits all activity, but now, consumers will be able to learn exactly how their genes impact their nutritional tendencies, weight and overall health. Today, ORIG3N, a leader in regenerative medicine technology, unveiled FUEL™, a new genetic test focused exclusively on nutrition.

Introduced at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Boston, FUEL™ is designed to reveal genetic information that will remove some of the roadblocks along the path to optimal health. This will alleviate the frustration consumers often feel when identifying an eating plan that will work best for their unique sensitivities, metabolic factors and more.

FUEL™ is the newest member of the LIFEPROFILE suite of genetic tests, which identify how genes impact specific areas of one's body, providing insights into consumers' genetic makeup.

"There are several types of nutrition genes – from your likelihood to regain weight and have high cholesterol, to why you hate cilantro and how high your caffeine tolerance is," said Robin Smith, co-founder and CEO of ORIG3N. "Once you understand your genetic makeup, you can make choices to change your lifestyle in a way that's tailor-made for how your body works."

FUEL™ assesses the genes that impact your nutrition in the following areas:

  • Food sensitivities, including if you are lactose intolerant, your perception of bitter taste, your level of alcohol tolerance and whether you love or hate cilantro
  • Food breakdown factors such as your cholesterol and lipid counts and how your body stores fat
  • Genes associated with hunger and weight, including the gene that signifies hunger and fullness, appetite, propensity toward obesity, risk of addictive food behaviors, sweet tooth and tendency to re-gain weight you have lost
  • Vitamin conversion for beta carotene, vitamins A, B6, B12, D, E and folate levels

Other LIFEPROFILE™ tests include FITCODE™, AURA™ skin and SUPERHERO™ assessments.

FUEL™ retails $149.00.  For more information on ordering FUEL™, please visit: http://www.orig3n.com/lifeprofile/fuel/.

About the Company
We make tasty food from hemp. It's healthy too. Hemp is one of the most exciting natural ingredients with all kinds of benefits.

Go into any supermarket, good food store or look in the cupboard of a kitchen savvy chef today and you will find food made from hemp seed.

It wasn't always so.

Historically, hemp seed was seen as an aid to health - a neutriceutical. You might find a small bottle of hemp seed oil in a fridge of a health food store, expensive and intended as a medicine. In fact, in much the same way 25 years ago, you would more likely find Olive Oil sold in a Chemist as an aid for earache than in a Grocer's store sold for cooking. So complete is the revolution in food over the last 30 years, that we almost forget that every dish in northern Europe began with a slab of animal fat rather than a splash of oil.

We, Henry Braham and Glynis Murray, began a small revolution in food in 2005 when we launched our first bottles of Good Oil in Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, high end delis and then Waitrose.

Supplement Spotlight: Introducing Bulletproof Coffee Brain Octane Softgels 60 Ct.

 

 

Benefits:

• Balances beneficial bacteria in the gut
• Supports healthy digestion and immune function
• Convenient and travel friendly

 

Brain Octane Oil, when encapsulated, slows the digestion of Caprylic acid and spends more time in your gut, balancing beneficial bacteria and helping maintain normal yeast levels. Studies have shown that Caprylic fatty acids have gut biome balancing and potent microbial balancing effects that help to support healthy digestion and immune function.

Travel friendly Brain Octane Softgels go with you everywhere to support healthy digestion, cognitive function and provide a boost of energy from Bulletproof fats.

 

 

Ingredients:

Brain Octane Softgels were created using the most upgraded methods and ingredients.

Made with Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil, our most effective C8 medium chain triglyceride found in the heart of the coconut. Brain Octane Oil undergoes the rigorous Bulletproof Process® and is extracted, cleaned and refined without the use of harsh chemicals.

Brain Octane Softgels contain the lowest particle size possible to support optimal absorption. The Caprylic fatty acid particles do not separate, but because it is a fat particle, it will change size and translucency depending on its temperature. It will be solid white at cool temperatures, and liquid clear in warmer temperatures. A cloudy or whiter appearance can be normal depending on environmental temperatures.

Optimum storage conditions for Brain Octane Softgels is 59 to 86 °F (15-30°C). Protect from extreme temperatures. Freezing & excessive heat may damage softgels.

Brain Octane Softgels Ingredients: Caprylic Acid Triglycerides (Brain Octane Oil), Bovine Gelatin, Glycerin, Oleic Acid (Derived from Olive Oil), Vitamin E (TPGS), Purified Water, Natural Flavor.
