Innovation and Market Impact
Farmingdale, NY (October 9, 2014) — Patient One OpticOne™ by MediNutritionals Research LLC was selected as the Winner of the Antioxidant Supplements Category for the 2014 SupplySide Editor’s Choice Awards.
Five consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide team for achievements in innovation and market impact in 20 different categories. The winner in each category was announced at the SupplySide West 2014 Editor’s Choice Awards Reception on Wednesday, October 8 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Patient One President Gerard McIntee stated, “We are both honored and proud to be selected as winner, being recognized with the top distinction in a field of outstanding formulas industrywide.” Noting that Patient One’s formulas are developed based on scientific data, McIntee added that “We were especially pleased to formulate OpticOne™ in collaboration with two esteemed ophthalmologists: Dr. Luciano Barros Galhardo, an ophthalmologist postgraduate of geriatrics and subnormal vision and Medical Director of Benchimol Eye Clinic; and Dr. Amir Zisman, an ophthalmologist postgraduate in Glaucoma by UFRJ, Chief of Glaucoma Sector at the Benchimol Eye Clinic, and Fellow at Gundersen Clinic (US).
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 to help regulate ocular fluid and blood flow, promote reduced intraocular pressure and help maintain visual acuity.

“Tens of millions of people over the age of 55 are concerned with eye health, and as the population ages the number is expected to increase,” McIntee explained. “We’ve found that 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.”

"The out-of-the box thinking displayed by the companies on the short list in each category made selecting just one winner a challenge for our editorial team," said Heather Granato, Vice President, Content, in Informa’s Health & Nutrition Network.
