We are unique in being totally focused on anti-ageing products and services which is why there was so much media interest in our launch and consumer demand for the magazine. Adding Radio Shows and Podcasts to our advertising mix has already generated huge interest from advertisers because the power of sound is so compelling and the potential to drive consumer traffic is huge.

Last month's launch of Elixir, was met by an avalanche of international media interest. In the UK, on BBC Television's Breakfast show, Elixir had two appearances on the famous red sofa in one morning! Each was seen by more than five million viewers when Editor, Avril O'Connor, was interviewed by the distinguished presenters Michael Peschardt and Susannah Reid.
Then came the turn of BBC Radio 4's flagship news show, the Today programme, hosted by John Humphrys and Sarah Montague, listened to by more than 6.2 million people. Moments before Elixir went on air, these award-winning broadcasters were grilling none other than the UK Conservative leader, David Cameron. But even the man who aspires to be Britain's next Prime Minister had to give way when the studio was cleared for more important matters - the launch of Elixir magazine.
Abroad, news of Elixir also spread world-wide. Millions of listeners tuned in to learn about our launch on the BBC World Service. And regional listeners around the UK, via stations such as BBC Radio Newcastle, Leicester and Three Counties, also heard all about our exciting new publication on their local radio station. As a result we now have subscribers as far away as Karachi and Russia.
The Times newspaper carried an opinion column on anti-ageing in which the acclaimed writer Michele Kirsch praised this magazine for its pioneering approach and well-balanced editorial stance. Michele declared: "Targeted at the well-to-do buyer of anti-ageing stuff, and swallowers of anti-ageing supplements, Elixir is not catering exclusively to the knifestyles of the rich and famous market, but it is not anti-surgery either…..The tone is balanced, putting health and inner being over looks but still covering the looks stuff for those for whom health and inner beauty are not enough."
Elixir has launched at a time when there is a growing ageing population who don't want to get old with the debilitating illnesses suffered by their parents and who want to spend money on looking good and living longer. It is also a time of exciting and unprecedented medical and scientific discoveries. Today, we are unlocking the secrets of DNA and stem cells to help fight and treat diseases. At the same time there are a bewildering array of anti-ageing and rejuvenation products and services on the market.
