Twinlab Launches New Single-herb Organic Teas, Showcases Sports and Herbal Supplements at Natural Products Expo East

Twinlab expands offering with a broader range of products for more healthy living choices

NEW YORK – September 13, 2012 – As more Americans seek healthy options to enhance their lives, there is a demand for new products from all categories represented at Natural Products Expo East. Twinlab, a trusted leader in nutrition for more than 40 years, is proud to showcase its benefit-specific, high quality supplements and teas at the Natural Products Expo East Show in Baltimore September 19-22, in booth #5431.

At the show, Twinlab will be showcasing new additions to its 90-year-old Alvita® Teas line. Started in 1922, Alvita offers premium quality teas that cover the gamut of herbs nature has to offer. Alvita is launching three new organic teas and previewing a new look exclusively at Expo East.

• Elder Flower: Long held as a symbol of good luck, European elder flower has traditionally been used to help support respiratory health.*

• Uva Ursi Leaves: The leaves of the uva ursi shrub, which have been a part of many cultures around the world since the second century, traditionally have been used to support urinary tract health.*

• Black Cohosh Root: Used by Native Americans and Europeans for more than two thousand years, the roots of black cohosh have been traditionally used to help support women's health needs.*

Nature’s Herbs®, using ingredients harvested from nature, is a complete line of herbal supplements stemming from traditional plants to the latest clinically tested herbs and bioactive ingredients. A new product from Nature’s Herbs, Forskohlii Power™, represents the perfect balance of Ayurvedic tradition and modern science. The recently updated formula now contains a higher percentage of forskohlin for increased potency to help support weight management.* Each capsule delivers 125 mg of premium quality forskohlii standardized for 10 percent (12.5 mg) forskohlin, the same standardized level of forskohlin used in clinical research.

Twinlab Clean Series™ Sports Nutrition, one of Twinlab’s latest innovations that will be previewed at Expo East, is a series unlike any other: it contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, or parabens, uses whey protein from hormone-free sources, is batch-tested for banned substances as part of HFL’s Informed Choice Program, and will be 3rd party certified NON-GMO. This new series range will target athletes in search of “clean” supplements that don’t sacrifice performance for peace of mind.

Twinlab produces products from some of the finest quality nutrients, minerals, herbs and plants on earth and is committed to making the world’s most consistently reliable and user-friendly supplement formulas. Twinlab products are available at retail locations nationwide.
