GetHealthy Network Hosts E-Commerce Supplement Stores with a Network of Over 1,000 Medical Practitioners Nationwide
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a bionutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition that helps build lean muscle, announced today that it has partnered with GetHealthy.store ("GetHealthy"), a Texas-based e-commerce platform serving a network of over 1,000 anti-aging practitioners nationwide. MYOS believes that this platform will greatly increase the level of awareness, education of, and encourage the adoption of, MYOS' products among medical practitioners and their patients.
Since the launch of MYOS' Longevity Business at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) Conference in December 2019, MYOS' healthy aging products have been adopted by various anti-aging medical practices across the United States. At the forefront of MYOS Longevity is its brand, Physician Muscle Health Formula®, which is distributed exclusively to medical practitioners and leverages the extensive portfolio of research behind our proprietary ingredient, Fortetropin.
In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial that was conducted at the University of California, Berkeley, subjects who received a daily dose of Fortetropin experienced an increase in the rate of muscle protein synthesis by approximately 15% relative to subjects who received a macronutrient-matched placebo. These results were presented by the Principal Investigator, Dr. William J. Evans at the International Conference on Frailty & Sarcopenia Research in Toulouse, France in March 2020.
"We are absolutely delighted to work with GetHealthy to leverage their cutting edge e-commerce platform and extensive medical provider network to expand the reach of the MYOS Physician Muscle Health Formula brand," commented MYOS CEO, Joseph Mannello. "GetHealthy has a unique platform that enables physicians to educate patients about the specific nutritional supplements that best meet their medical needs. Facilitating dialogue between patients and their medical providers offers improved overall outcomes and compliance in terms of dosing and consuming the right nutritional supplements," added Mr. Mannello.
"We are very excited about working with MYOS to make MYOS Physician Muscle Health Formula available to our nationwide network of medical providers. We are very impressed by the extensive human clinical research behind Fortetropin® and know this research will be well received by our practitioners. We are eager to provide access through our Get Healthy Network to practitioners nationwide," commented Jon Armstrong, Founder and CEO, GetHealthy.store.
