NOW Foods Adding Cycle Comfort, Fit & Tone, and HMB 500

NOW Foods

NOW Foods is best-known for its high quality vitamins, hosting an eclectic blend of popular vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential oils, and more. The ever-expanding product line is comprised of approximately 1000 supplements. These products help with weight loss, sleep, energy, immune health, and provide cardiovascular support.  Nothing replaces exercise, healthy diet, and frequent trips to a physician, but these products can sometimes address health issues without more invasive treatment.

The introduction of 3 new products is going to solidify NOW Foods as much more than a vitamin retailer.  NOW is adding Cycle Comfort, Fit & Tone, and HMB 500.  The company is targeting the female demographic with the release of a menstrual cycle aid and the title of their protein supplement with added weight loss ingredients.  A brief summary of each product is listed below.

Cycle Comfort

Created for women with experiencing mild symptoms during their menstrual cycle. The formula uses Zinc and Organic Ginger to help ease cramping and pain.  Many over-the-counter products exist for helping women during their cycles, but this formula takes a more natural approach by including a popular mineral and herbal extract.

Directions: Take 1 capsule 3 times daily for four days, starting one day before menstrual period. Not for continuous use. Do not exceed recommended dose.
