"Having had children, I know that broken sleep is the least restful sleep you can have," said Teri Polo (Meet the Parents series).  "Good sleep is incredibly important to your health and your mental and emotional being and I'm grateful to be able to try Glysom™."

"Basal metabolism is something that you'll want to take control of," said Dallas Roberts (The Grey).  "Capsiate Natura® seems like it would do that for you."

"The Hollywood community is tuned into the importance of both weight management and better quality sleep for optimum benefit to overall health," said Jun Tashiro, Director of Health Ingredients & Services, Ajinomoto North America, Inc.   "Capsiate Natura® and Glysom™ offer a safe and unique approach to these vital health challenges."

Capsiate Natura® is the only dietary supplement with rare, natural capsinoids extracted from the CH-19 Sweet pepper, a non-burning pepper variety.  Unique in addressing caloric output by increasing metabolism* without the side-effects, Capsiate Natura® can be an important aspect of overall weight management in conjunction with diet and exercise.  Glysom™ is an amino acid nutraceutical that promotes deeper, sounder and more satisfying sleep without morning drowsiness*.  Made from glycine, an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body, Glysom™ is particularly effective in promoting the non-REM sleep crucial to feeling refreshed and restored in the morning*. 

Effective, safe and side-effect free, Capsiate Natura® and Glysom™ have been trusted, supported and recommended by many healthcare professionals and are available to be purchased in the U.S. exclusively through these doctors.  In honor of the 2012 Academy Awards, Ajinomoto North America, Inc. is rolling out special New Registration Campaign.  The first 100 healthcare professionals who register as a new distributor of Capsiate Natura® and/or Glysom™ between March, 1 and 31, will receive Glysom™'s "Trial Sample Pack" (3 stick packs x 10 boxes: Not for Sale) after registration is completed.  Call 1-877-227-2030 or email and mention "Oscar" for registration.
