We are very pleased that our production team was able to develop a formulation free of artificial flavors and sweeteners for those customers who either do not care for the mint flavoring or prefer not to use artificial sweeteners for a variety of personal reasons. Our goal in formulating Anatabloc® is to promote health and optimum nutrition, and removing barriers to use for any customer is always a good thing to do. Most people prefer the original formulation, but now Anatabloc® users have another choice."

Jonnie R. Williams, CEO of Rock Creek's parent company, Star Scientific, Inc., stated, "The brand extension of Anatabloc® Unflavored tablets at this time underscores our commitment to be responsive to consumer demands as well as drive consumer acceptance."
