Biolife, LLC Release: First Clinically Proven Product to Stop Bleeding Instantly for the Growing Senior Population on Blood Thinners, Now Available OTC


9/19/2012 10:56:12 AM

SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- WoundSeal, a topical powder that stops bleeding instantly for the more than 50 million seniors on blood thinners, is available for the first time over-the-counter. Created by seniors for seniors, WoundSeal was invented by accident when the product's innovator, Dr. James Patterson, was testing potassium iron oxyacid salt for water purification technology. Dr. Patterson cut his hand and noticed that when the powder mixed with his blood, it formed an instant scab that stopped the bleeding.

Please visit www.stopbleedinginstantly.com for additional product information, success stories and hi-res images.

Trusted for years in leading hospitals like The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Mayo Clinic and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, this availability coincides with the federal government's Million Hearts Campaign. The campaign's goal is to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes over 5 years. Heart Attacks and Strokes are directly linked to Cardiovascular Disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. The launch of WoundSeal can assist the campaign by helping patients stay compliant with their life-saving blood thinning medications by reducing one of the most significant side effects, nuisance external bleeding. Many patients stop taking blood thinning medications because minor wounds can bleed for hours or even days, disrupting daily life common products used to stop bleeding, such as gauze and bandages, simply don't work. Now, consumers finally have the same easy-to-use solution as hospitals. WoundSeal is available nationally in the First Aid section at Walgreens and CVS stores, or online at WoundSeal.com. MSRP is $6.99.
