Littleton, NH (PRWEB) March 11, 2009
Tender Corp., a leading manufacturer of over-the-counter topical cream and first aid products designed to enhance consumers' quality of life, today announced the release of HealthiFeet®.
A topical moisturizing cream clinically proven to relieve foot discomfort, HealthiFeet® contains L-Arginine, a naturally occurring amino acid which the body uses to regulate circulation. The L-Arginine in HealthiFeet® is transported through the skin by a patented delivery system, restoring normal temperatures to cold feet and keeping them warm and healthy. Developed by SST Inc., HealthiFeet's patented penetrating formula naturally absorbs through your skin, exactly where you need it.
"Our feet mirror our overall health, conditions such as nerve and circulatory disorders often show their first symptoms in the feet," says Tender Corp. president Jennifer Cusick. "With three out of four Americans experiencing serious foot problems at some point in their lives, proper foot care becomes critical to maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle," she continued, adding, "Regular use of HealthiFeet Foot Cream is essential to maintaining healthy feet."
Proper foot care is especially important for people with neuropathy or diabetes. Poor circulation in the feet of diabetics results in 82,000 foot amputations each year*. However, comprehensive foot care programs have been shown to reduce amputations by 50%.**
When used as directed, the podiatrist-recommended HealthiFeet® has been clinically proven to increase blood flow by 33% - 35% and foot temperature by five to eight degrees.*** As such, HealthiFeet® also provides a much-needed solution for people who suffer with everyday cold feet.
HOW TO APPLY HEALTHIFEET®:
Simply rub HealthiFeet® Foot Cream into the feet for five minutes, liberally covering the entire foot, top and bottom. Warmth can be experienced in less than ten minutes and last for several hours. The warmth will occur gradually and is an indication that HealthiFeet® is working to restore normal temperatures to your feet. Apply the cream twice per day, morning and evening, for seven days. After seven days, apply once per day to maintain soft, healthy feet.
HealthiFeet® comes in 1.8 OZ (MSRP$9.99) and 4 OZ (MSRP$19.99) tubes. HealthiFeet® is available nationally at Wal-Mart and other leading food and drug retailers. For more info on HealthiFeet® visit HealthiFeet.
