Top Five Reasons the #1 Alternative to NSAIDs Makes Good Business Sense

Independent pharmacies and healthcare providers expand business with AminoActiv reseller program

MADISON, Tenn., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — All across America, independent pharmacies and healthcare providers are on the frontlines of pain relief. Consumers and patients rely on the advice and expertise they receive from professionals on the ground locally to control pain and inflammation related to arthritis, muscle strain, joint and back injury, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, headaches, menstrual cramps and more. Given the following facts, retailers and health practitioners bear a tremendous responsibility and opportunity in meeting consumer and patient needs:

  1. According to the American Pain Foundation, 75 million Americans suffer from pain, and that number will only increase as the population continues to age.
  2. 33 million people use NSAIDs regularly to treat their pain and inflammation.
  3. An extensive range of NSAID adverse effects, including gastrointestinal ailments, renal failure, and increased heart failure risk, has been documented worldwide.
  4. About 75 percent of pain sufferers do not comply with or seek adequate treatment because of fear of side effects or addiction.
  5. Despite an abundance of NSAID alternatives on the market, few are backed by reputable safety and efficacy studies.

These facts are not simply alarm bells for the retailers and professionals who are face to face with pain sufferers every day. They also represent a business opportunity for pharmacies and healthcare providers invested in offering an effective and safe pain relief option. That is the motivation behind a growing number of resellers who are now offering AminoActiv® (, the #1 alternative to ibuprofen and NSAIDs.

"People are becoming more aware of drug toxicities but available pain relief alternatives, including herbal remedies, holistic therapies, plant extracts and natural or home remedies, have proved inconsistent, often ineffective and sometimes unsafe," stated Mark Faulkner, president of Vireo Systems, the manufacturer of AminoActiv. "The exception is AminoActiv, a non-toxic, scientifically proven solution that doesn't just relieve pain but promotes healing."

As outlined in the first-ever ebook dedicated to resellers on the topic, AminoActiv is unlike other alternative options because medical studies actually demonstrate this medication's safety and efficacy. Available through Vireo System's website, the AminoActiv ebook also presents the research-backed data that substantiates AminoActiv's unique ability to provide powerful, safe pain and inflammation relief while supporting restoration of damaged tissue. It also outlines the empirical data highlighting the dangers of ibuprofen and NSAIDs, plus the reasons behind the void in the marketplace for effective alternatives.

"With our AminoActiv ebook, resellers have all the information they need to help their patients make the switch to AminoActiv," Faulkner says. "Since AminoActiv offers a highly advantageous reseller program, medical and pharmacy professionals will appreciate promoting a product that provides peace of mind and makes good business sense. Retailers and practitioners who sell AminoActiv are very successful with it simply because it satisfies market demand safely and effectively."
