FORT LEE, N.J., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Ajinomoto North America, Inc. is offering “red carpet” nutraceuticals for weight management and better sleep quality to the 2012 Academy Award® nominees and presenters. The first Japanese nutraceutical to be featured at the GBK Luxury Gift Lounge for the Oscars®, Ajinomoto will showcase Capsiate Natura®, a dietary supplement substantiated to increase metabolism*, and Glysom(TM), an amino acid nutraceutical to promote sounder, more satisfying sleep for occasional sleeplessness*, at the W Hotel in Hollywood, CA, on February 24 and 25.
“Oscar season or not, weight management and sleep improvement top most people’s wish lists,” said Jun Tashiro, Director of Health Ingredients & Services, Ajinomoto North America, Inc. “Substantiated by Ajinomoto’s rigorous scientific research, Glysom(TM) and Capsiate Natura® are side-effect free nutraceuticals which, respectively, address the body’s need for healthy deep sleep and help increase its metabolism in order to burn more calories*. The Oscars Lounge is an exciting opportunity to present celebrities with a dietary supplement duo that cover the two areas for optimal benefit to the overall health.”
For the first time, Ajinomoto is introducing Hollywood to Capsiate Natura®, the only dietary supplement with rare, natural capsinoids extracted from the CH-19 Sweet pepper, a non-burning pepper variety. Capsiate Natura® is unique in addressing caloric output by increasing metabolism* without the side effects, an important aspect of overall weight management in conjunction with diet and exercise.
After a successful showing at the GBK Luxury Gift Lounge for the Golden Globes in January, Ajinomoto is bringing back Glysom(TM), an amino acid nutraceutical that promotes deeper, sounder and more satisfying sleep without morning drowsiness*. Made from glycine, an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body, Glysom(TM) is particularly effective in promoting the non-REM sleep crucial to feeling refreshed and restored in the morning*. Capsiate Natura® and Glysom(TM) are both available in the U.S. exclusively through healthcare professionals. The local distributors can be found at www.ajihealth.com
“Introducing Glysom(TM) to the Golden Globes nominees and presenters in January was very exciting. It showed us just how precious safe, better quality sleep is in Hollywood,” said Mr. Tashiro.
In addition to Capsiate Natura® and Glysom(TM), Ajinomoto North America, Inc. markets Natura Guard BP(TM), a milk protein-derived nutraceutical to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels already within the normal range*.
