?PS ? The New Clean? Wins Retailer Award for Best New Product of the Year

‘PS – The New Clean’ Wins Retailer Award for Best New Product of the Year










Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 14, 2006

Retail grocers have recognized an innovative, germ-fighting hand spray (made by St. Petersburg, Florida-based American HomeHealth) with the ‘Retailer Choice’ Award in the Health and Beauty category at the annual Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Trade Show.

PS was launched earlier this year with a humorous ad during the Super Bowl and is currently being advertised on Oprah, Dr. Phil, Martha, and The Price is Right. The PS brand consists of a complete line of hospital-grade infection prevention products including hand soaps and sanitizers, and surface disinfectants. These products were adapted from the formulae used in hospitals and by doctors and dentists multiple times each day between patients as protection from copious strains of harmful bacteria. The surface disinfectants and wipes are effective against MRSA, Staph, and TB. AHH adapted the hospital product for home-use with a convenient Twizz-Top (spray cap and twist lock), the only hand sanitizer available to consumers by spray application. The hand spray contains the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride, an antimicrobial.

“PS appeals to the ‘Security Mom,’ the modern-day version of the traditional soccer mom, a busy woman who wants to keep her home as germ-free as possible for her active family,” said Ruly Lora, Chairman and CEO. “PS is reformulated with fragrance and repackaged for the consumer market with the industrial strength used by healthcare professionals.” Lora noted that new scents will be available in 2007.

Food Marketing Institute conducts programs in research, education, industry relations and public affairs on behalf of its 1,500 member companies – food retailers and wholesalers – in the United States and around the world. FMI’s U.S. members operate approximately 26,000 retail food stores with a combined annual sales volume of $ 340 billion – three-quarters of all retail food store sales in the United States. FMI’s retail membership is composed of large multi-store chains, regional firms and independent supermarkets. Its international membership includes 200 companies from 50 countries. More information is available at http://www.FMI.org.

PS is widely available to consumers in all 50 states at retail chains such as Target and Publix. General information is available at http://www.PStheNewClean.com.

Madison, WI (PRWEB) June 22, 2011

The Vity Awards are sponsored by industry leading Vitamin Retailer magazine and honor the top selling vitamins and supplements in each category based on feedback from health food store retailers across the country.

Prevagen is the only supplement to contain the breakthrough ingredient ‘apoaequorin’, a naturally-derived protein from a jellyfish which is neuroprotective and proven to improve memory by addressing the age-related calcium imbalance in brain cells.

“We are very pleased Prevagen has become the preferred memory supplement in a short period of time,” says Quincy Bioscience President Mark Underwood. “Our customers have been telling us how much Prevagen has helped them with thinking, learning, and memory. We are thankful to receive this award confirming their experience.”

Calcium in the nervous system is a requirement for vital brain cell functions. Research has shown the natural course of aging produces calcium imbalances which affect the ability to remember. Apoaequorin helps restore calcium balance by buffering intracellular calcium and improve the health and function of brain cells leading to better memory.

Prevagen is available in health food stores and pharmacies nationwide. Retailers interested in carrying Prevagen can call (888) 814-0814 or visit http://www.prevagen.com/retailers/.

Canadian Hockey Fan Wins Stanley Cup Tickets in Poker Game










Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) June 7, 2007

With just over 24 hours to go before the puck dropped for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and ticket prices climbing into the stratosphere Jason Inman, was beginning to lose hope he would get to see his favorite team, the Ottawa Senators, play. That was until he decided to put his poker skills to good use.

As it turned out, Canada’s longest running play-for-fun poker site TigerGaming.net was running a free online poker tournament Friday night and giving away two prime 100 level tickets to the hottest game in town, limousine transportation to ScotiaBank Place and a food and beverage budget for the night.

It was a Texas Hold’em tournament and Jason beat out hundreds of other competitors from Ottawa and area over several hours of poker play. When the smoked cleared he was the excited owner of the tickets.

On top of all that TigerGaming.net also donated $ 1 for every participant to Roger’s House and Ottawa Palliative care center. Roger’s House is dedicated to providing pediatric palliative care with the objective of enhancing the comfort and quality of life for children and their families.

Sean Harris, TigerGaming’s Poker Manager, explained their reasons for organizing the tourney: “We were moved by the story of Alexander ‘Elgin’ Fraser, and respect the excellent work done by Roger’s House.
