Vitamints blend supplement, breath mint
June 14th, 2013
NEW YORK – Natural health product maker The Winning Combination Inc. has unveiled Vitamints, which combine a vitamin and a breath mint.
Vitamints address such health needs as immunity, energy, stress relief, memory and women's health.
The company said Thursday that the product, available this spring nationwide at Walgreens, is the first-ever "vitamin and mint in one" and can be taken anytime, anywhere.
Vitamints are sugar-free dietary supplements with natural mint flavor that freshens breath. The tablets can be chewed, or users can just let them dissolve in their mouth.
Each of the five varieties of Vitamints targets a specific health need: Immune (helps boost immune function), Energy (helps maintain stamina and endurance), Calm (aids relaxation to alleviate symptoms of stress), Focus (helps enhance concentration and memory), and Multi for Women (specifically addresses women's health needs).
Vitamints are conveniently packaged in sleek tins that are designed to easily fit into a pocket, a gym bag, a purse or a computer case. A daily dose of one tablet taken four times per day helps provide the recommended daily allowance of several vitamins and minerals while enhancing absorption of key nutrients, the company said.
The suggested retail price for a 60-count tin of Vitamints is $4.99.
"In our fast-paced world, schedules are always changing, and the last thing we want is to stop and remember to take that giant horse pill in the morning," stated Shazad Bukhari, chief operating officer at The Winning Combination, a Canadian company. "Vitamints not only offer the recommended daily dose of essential vitamins and minerals, but they taste great and you can take them anytime throughout the day, whenever and wherever works for you, without a fixed schedule and even without water."
