Sitraa, Inc. (http://www.sitraahealth.com), a Edison, NJ based technology and healthcare company focused on finding healthy solutions to combat chronic care diseases, announced the launch of Healthy Grocery Market Platform – http://www.sitraa.com – to help users conscious of finding healthier groceries.

Sitraa’s Co-Founder & CEO Mr. Sekhar Divakaruni said, “2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans is very clear. We need to change our eating habits. Sitraa Health Platform focuses on the western diet, which is the root cause of chronic diseases. Research shows that food is a key driver of chronic conditions. The current retail market model that just automatically sells every conceived food product, without having a qualified dietitian to advise the buyers, is not working. Sitraa Health gives a platform for users and patients to receive personalized advice from registered dietitians on virtually anything; feedback on everyday groceries, answers to a specific product query, and advice on healthy dining out and activity. Sitraa uses technology-driven personalized counseling to help users and patients buy healthier foods and change their eating habits gradually.

Mr. Sekhar said “Sitraa Health Market is a unique ecommerce platform that can be implemented for any retail partner in a matter of weeks. Sitraa creates its own content and customizes search and recommendation tools based on the user. Sitraa believes its technology and service can significantly contribute to improving the eating habits of our communities.”

According to the 2015 Dietary Guidelines issued by the US Government (http://www.health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015-scientific-report/), about half of all American adults—117 million individuals—have one or more preventable, chronic diseases, and about two-thirds of U.S. adults—nearly 155 million individuals—are overweight or obese, According to the American Diabetes Association, there are 29 million Americans who had diabetes in 2012 with an additional 86 million considered pre-diabetic.

uBiome Seeks Academic Partnerships with the Launch of the uBiome Academic Consortium


San Francisco, California (PRWEB) May 07, 2015

uBiome is launching this global consortium to bring together talented researchers worldwide, with an emphasis on under-represented areas. This consortium is intended to complement, not replace or compete with, efforts like the IHMC and NIH Human Microbiome Project. There is no charge to participate in the consortium and membership is available to scientists worldwide. Membership in the consortium includes many benefits, including:

Speaking opportunities at conferences and event invitations

Grants — up to $ 100k total in microbiome kits for exceptional research proposals

Early access to publications

Job listings for graduate students

Resources for continuing education

Discounts from partners

Free uBiome kit

“Collaboration is the fuel of research. We aim for this consortium to promote bonds among academics worldwide and allow all researchers to advance the state of research more quickly. We can accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and understanding of the impact of the microbiome on human health,” noted Jessica Richman, co-founder and CEO of uBiome.

uBiome’s scientific advisory board includes Dr. Joseph DeRisi, HHMI Professor of Biochemistry at the University of California at San Francisco and Macarthur Genius Award Winner; Dr. Jonathan Eisen, Leading Microbiome Researcher and Professor of Microbiology at the University of California, Davis; Dr. Larry Smarr, Leading Quantified Self Researcher and Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego, and many other noted researchers.

The human body is composed of 10 trillion human cells, but there are ten times as many microbial cells as human cells — the 100 trillion that together form the microbiome. These microbes are not harmful, but rather are co-evolved symbionts, essential partners in our physiology. Like the rainforest, the healthy human microbiome is a balanced ecosystem. The latest research suggests that the correct balance of microbes serves to keep potential pathogens in check and regulate the immune system. Microbes also perform essential functions such as digesting food and synthesizing vitamins.

uBiome’s technology provides a simple and affordable toolkit for researchers. It is committed to the success of it’s current academic partners, while also hoping to inspire novel applications by improving accessibility to research and supporting discoveries about the microbiome. uBiome currently collaborates with dozens of universities on academic research, including Harvard, Stanford, UCSF, University College London, and the Garvan Institute (Australia).

uBiome’s research partnerships include studies of the human gut, mouth, skin, genitals, nose, and gingival sulci. Dr. Jeremy Horst, a post-doctoral researcher at UCSF and practicing dentist, participated in a recent study to better understand the role of bacteria in periodontal disease and caries. “Our work with Dr. Horst and others has inspired us to reach out to the broader academic community,” said Dr. Zachary Apte, co-founder and CTO of uBiome. “We’re excited to extend our reach and collaborate with a more diverse group of academic partners.”

uBiome provides participants with a catalog of their microbiome through a self-collected sample that is then processed in their state-of-the-art laboratory in San Francisco. The service details the microbial composition of various populations on the body, explains what is known about each type of microbe, and relates the participant’s microbiome information to the latest scientific research on the role of the microbiome in health, diet, and lifestyle. The global academic consortium aims to help researchers advance knowledge of the microbiome at a more rapid pace.

This video series is another way for us to impact the well-being of the communities we serve.”

Diagnosed at a young age with Type 1 Diabetes, Talbot lives with a deep understanding of the impact food can have on a person’s life. This perspective has allowed him to develop unique recipes highlighting the importance of eating right and cooking healthy.

“Partnering with a health care system like Barnabas Health has been a wonderful opportunity to fulfill my mission to showcase the special blend of science and the art of cooking while promoting health and wellness, said Talbot. “The videos and unique recipes were designed to make cooking enjoyable and help educate families on the importance of nutrition and eating healthy.”

The “Life is better healthy cooking series with Sam Talbot” was designed to help educate families on how to eat healthier in a fast paced, fast food environment. The series also highlights the importance of making healthy choices of fruits and vegetables instead of highly processed, fast and convenient foods. These recipes are simple, quick, nutritious, and inexpensive.

The 11-episode series includes videos on breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacking, fast food, processed food and balanced diet as well as episodes featuring seasonal foods and recipes.

Content for the videos were developed by Talbot in conjunction with Barbara Mintz, RD, Vice President of Healthy Living and Community Engagement for Barnabas Health.

In addition to the ‘Life is better healthy’ cooking videos, the enhanced Wellness Website also features healthy recipes, health quizzes, diet and exercise tips, age-specific guidelines for appropriate health screenings and tests, as well as health blogs and an A to Z health library.

“At Barnabas Health, ‘Life is better healthy’ is not just our motto – it’s our way of life. We incorporated that philosophy into this website redesign and truly made it all about the people we serve and gave them access to resources they can use to achieve optimal health,” added Ms. Mintz.

FitClick Announces Launch of Innovative Talk-to-Track Diet App for Mobile Users


Vienna, VA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Diet and fitness service FitClick has just released its Talk-to-Track mobile app, which uses innovative voice-transcription auto-tracking technology to track a user’s calorie intake. The FitClick Talk-to-Track app allows users to count calories by audibly recording foods using their smartphone’s keyboard mic.

As the only diet app with the company’s patent-pending natural language analysis technology, Talk-to-Track is able to interpret spoken or typed diet entries to identify food items and calculate calories. Talk-to-Track can track a user’s calorie consumption over the course of days, weeks, and months.

The innovative FitClick Talk-to-Track app stands out among all other calorie-counter apps for its dynamic technology and unparalleled ease of use. As James Mrowka, President and Co-Founder of FitClick, states, “By allowing users simply to state the food they’ve eaten, our app is much easier to use. Other apps require users to enter each food item individually, search long lists of food options and enter food quantities. With our app’s voice-to-auto-tracking technology, users can track meal items and quantities all at once, without ever needing to use their mobile keyboards. Talk-to-Track has reduced diet tracking from a tedious multi-minute process into something that is done in mere seconds.”

The Talk-to-Track app also leverages learning technology, allowing the app to recognize common foods and quantities a user eats for highly accurate tracking.

The FitClick Talk-to-Track app can be downloaded for free on Android and iOS phones, and maintains no additional features that require purchase. In addition to tracking calories, the FitClick Talk-to-Track app also breaks down food by carbohydrate, protein, fiber, and fat content for a comprehensive look at nutrition.

Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

Wojo Nutrition announces the launch of their six liquid single serving supplements formulated to be added to any beverage and designed to fit the needs of one’s day.

At Wojo Nutrition, they don’t see the multivitamin as a one size fits all solution to one’s nutritional needs. Every day is filled with its own challenges, and every challenge has its own solution. This is why they’ve developed a line of six liquid single serving supplements that can be added to any beverage and are each specially formulated to tackle a distinct problem head-on.

Its light taste blends instantly with any hot or cold beverage for a quick pick-me-up that’s easy on the palette and can be taken at any time.

It’s then enhanced with a blend of herbal extracts and naturally derived amino acids and vitamins specific to its intended use.

This summer they’ll be releasing four new offerings including wojoFOCUS, wojoSUN, wojoWELL, and wojoMOOD.

“I hope that people may reach for a Wojo before they make the decision to reach for a pharmaceutical product or sugary energy drinks,” said Knowles.

Wojo Nutrition will be showcasing their line of products at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California, running from March 4th-8th.

Founded in June 2012, Wojo Nutrition spent over two years developing their special formulas before bringing them to market in 2015.

“I launched Wojo as a way to provide men and women with a supplement that lets them focus on their journey, not just surviving from day to day,” said Knowles.

“Sometimes that means harnessing more energy, focus, or a better mood to face what’s ahead, and that’s where Wojo gives the body and mind a gentle nudge in the right direction.”

Develop Your Personal Brand As a Leader Workshop to Launch February 26-27, 2015 in Newport Beach, CA


Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2014

On February 26-27, 2015 Glenn Llopis Group (GLG) will be hosting its popular workshop program – Develop Your Personal Brand As Leader in Irvine, CA. Glenn Llopis, a nationally recognized thought leader, bestselling author and contributing writer to Forbes, Harvard Business Review and Huffington Post will facilitate this high-impact two-day program that teaches business leaders to develop/manage their leadership brand identity to maximize their workplace influence and overview performance.

According to Llopis, “the uncertainty of the post-2008 economy has demanded more from the workforce. All too often, leaders have been forced to sacrifice their own identities in the rush of business necessity. Leadership can no longer live in a highly-structured, overly-defined box of silos, but rather must move into an interconnected, boundary-less ecosystem of diverse minds, ideas, and ideals – where it’s more about the role your personal brand plays rather than your job description alone. As such, leaders are now eager to reclaim those personal identities as the economy improves and opportunities return. In order for organizations to recruit and retain top leadership talent, they must enable them with a leadership brand identity that matters.”

Based on a survey conducted by the Glenn Llopis Group (GLG), less than 15% of leaders have truly defined their personal brands and less than 5% are living them consistently at work each and every day. Through group-think situational analyses, case studies and pre-work assessments, participants will:

•Learn how and why personal branding is no longer about self-promotion, but about trusting yourself to be a more effective leader and make your voice and identity respected

•Seamlessly deliver their most genuine executive presence that represents who they are and what they stand for

•Align their leadership role and responsibilities to more authentically amplify and create greater impact and influence

•Create their personal brand leadership value proposition

•Manage their personal brand by continually refining the answers to four critical questions that serve as the foundation for their ultimate workplace success and significance

•Experience GLG’s “speed branding” exercise where workshop participants obtain real-time feedback and valuable insights from their peers

Prior GLG workshop participants that have included leaders from Fortune 500 clients such as Home Depot, Coke, Catamaran, State Farm, Target, Walmart, Pepsico, and many others have described the workshop experience as “awakening, transformational, eye-opening,” with a 100% approval rating.

For more information about how to attend the workshop and/or sponsorship opportunities for your corporation, please contact Vice President of Client Relations, Annette Prieto-Llopis at aprieto(at)glennllopisgroup(dot)com or at 949-387-2609.
