MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Divine Skin Inc. (DSKX.ob) confirmed that NutraOrigin, its brand of 63 premium nutritional supplements, had been tested successfully in four of the roughly 300 US locations of Whole Foods Market Inc., and that NutraOrigin would propagate throughout the upscale chain in 2012.
Distribution began with NutraOrigin's Omega line, the first brand of high-potency omega-3 fatty acids proven effective in large-scale clinical trials. During a recent double-blind study conducted for a US government agency, volunteers taking the NutraOrigin product improved their reaction time and accuracy while reducing drowsiness and anxiety. When the Whole Foods rollout is complete, NutraOrigin's Vitamin and Clinical lines will also be available.
Divine Skin CEO Daniel Khesin said, "NutraOrigin fits perfectly into the Whole Foods business model. We expect this deal to yield significant new revenue for both companies."
