BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, February 28, 2006 - BioLogic Health Solutions Pty Ltd., an Australia-based company whose mission is to research, develop and promote a range of well-researched natural products that improve the quality of people's lives, was awarded a product merit award by the Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ) for UroLogic(TM), the company's all-natural branded ingredient specifically designed to address overactive bladder and incontinence associated with aging and childbirth.
The NBJ Business Achievement Awards recognize companies for their distinguished achievements in various business categories within the natural products industry including: growth in large, mid-size and small companies; growth in ingredient suppliers; stock performance; investment in science and research; efforts on behalf of the industry; personal achievement; environment and sustainability; social responsibility; customer service and education; and product merit. Awards will be presented to attending companies in a special ceremony at the NBJ Newport Summit, July 26 - 28, 2006, in Dana Point, Calif.
"We are very pleased to be honored by the Nutrition Business Journal for our ongoing work surrounding UroLogic," stated Debra Seipel, managing director, BioLogic Health Solutions. "This caps off a momentous year which began with the launch of UroLogic into the U.S. market. Today UroLogic is available to consumers in finished products from several companies including NorthStar Nutritionals, Doctor's Best and Purity Products."
The patent-pending, proprietary natural formula in UroLogic contains the Western herb Horsetail, traditionally used to address the symptoms of urinary incontinence, and the Ayurvedic herb Crateva, that assists bladder tone, combined with added minerals to support nerve transmission. It is estimated by the U.S. National Association for Continence that the nearly 25 million Americans experiencing transient or chronic urinary incontinence spend roughly $5 billion every year on incontinence products. UroLogic offers incontinence sufferers an all-natural alternative for managing symptoms, which until now has been limited to prescription medicines, surgical treatment, continence pads and appliances.
