Relizen Honored as Top Women’s Health Consumer Packaged Goods Product at 2014 Editor’s Choice Awards

SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Award Winner

The Editor’s Choice Award is an honor for a new product like Relizen, but even more exciting are the testimonials that continue to roll in from doctors and consumers.

Relizen®, a patented, non-hormonal nutritional supplement for the relief of hot flashes associated with menopause, was named Best Women’s Health product at the SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards.

Relizen was selected by the SupplySide editorial team for innovation and market impact in the field of women’s health, as well as Relizen’s outstanding scientific research. The winners were announced at SupplySide West 2014 during the CPG Editor’s Choice Awards Reception on Wednesday, October 8 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Relizen is a patented, non-estrogenic nutritional supplement for managing hot flashes associated with menopause. The product was launched in the United States in the summer of 2014, but has been used for over 15 years by more than one million women in Europe, and is one of France’s leading menopause products.

Relizen’s clinically shown efficacy is one of the many merits that helped it stand out from the rest and secure the Editor’s Choice Award in the women’s health category. Studies on the product have been published in several leading medical journals, including Climacteric, Menopause, Genesis, and Cancers Au Feminin.** In addition, Relizen is backed by an Expert Physician Advisory Board comprised of prestigious physicians with a focus in women’s health.

“Relizen is different from most existing hot flash remedies because it is not a phytoestrogen and it is supported by demonstrated safety and efficacy published in peer-reviewed journals,” said Jed Rosenbaum, VP Marketing of JDS Therapeutics, the makers of Relizen. “The Editor’s Choice Award is an honor for a new product like Relizen, but even more exciting are the testimonials that continue to roll in from doctors and consumers who are excited and relieved that they have finally found a product that offers the best of both worlds – non-estrogenic relief from hot flashes and the science to back it up.”

Relizen’s active ingredient is made from a purified Swedish flower pollen extract, grown without pesticides and harvested in the fields of southern Sweden according to Good Agricultural and Collection Practices. A proprietary state-of-the-art biotechnology process removes pollen allergens and ensures every tablet of Relizen is easily absorbed by the body.
