OpticOne™ Recognized Among Top CPG Products for Innovation and Market Impact

Farmingdale, NY (September 15) — Informa Exhibitions has named Patient One OpticOne™ by MediNutritionals Research LLC as one of its finalists for the 2014 SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards.

Five 2013 consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market impact in 20 different categories. OpticOne Vision Support Formula was named to the short list in the Antioxidant Supplements Category.

One winner in each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2014 during the SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards Reception, set for Wednesday, October 8 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“It’s estimated that 8 million people over the age of 55 are concerned with eye health, and as the population ages this statistic is expected to increase,” noted Patient One President Gerard McIntee. “We’ve found that generally the eye care category is underserved in the practitioner-exclusive supplement marketplace, and in particular, Patient One has identified a gap in formulas that support common conditions related to optic nerve damage.”

Patient One OpticOne™ supplies comprehensive support for optic nerve health and eyesight function. OpticOne combines over 15 ingredients—powerful antioxidants and synergistic nutrients—known to support healthy optic nerve function: Vitamins A, C, E, B12, Folate, Magnesium, Chromium, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ginkgo Biloba, Grapeseed extract, Bilberry extract, Quercetin, L-Taurine, CoQ10, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Lutein and Flaxseed bran. This evidence-based formula was created in conjunction with ophthalmologists to help regulate ocular fluid and blood flow, promote reduced intraocular pressure and help maintain visual acuity.*
