Trovita Health Science Partially Closes Series A Round, Raises $1.5 Million to Launch ENU, a New Ready-to-Drink Complete Nutritional Beverage

MINNEAPOLIS, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trovita Health Science, a Minnesota-based specialty health and nutrition company, announces the partial closing of a private placement Series A capital raise.  The company has raised $1.5 million of the $1.9 million in financing offered for the round. Trovita is utilizing the proceeds from this financing to manufacture and commercialize an innovative ready-to-drink nutritional shake, sold under the brand name ENU™.

ENU is a naturally enhanced, complete nutritional shake that is remarkably flavorful, with more protein and less sugar than established brands. ENU is made with non-GMO and organic ingredients, and has no added sugar, corn syrup or artificial sweeteners.  A team of doctors and dietitians developed the product because of their dissatisfaction with current options for supporting the nutritional needs of cancer patients.

William Brown, CEO of Trovita Health Science, commented, "We are pleased to be moving forward with our operating plan, and with the very positive feedback we have received from major accounts that are evaluating ENU during the initial launch period.  Our investors believe in our mission, and understand there is an opportunity to improve the nutritional choices for people requiring supplemental nutrition.  There is a significant unmet need for a healthier ready-to-drink product that provides higher calories and higher protein content in a small serving size, while delivering on the customer's expectation of great taste. ENU provides a new option for a broad range of consumers seeking to supplement their diets, including people with active lifestyles, such as endurance athletes, or people experiencing undesired weight loss who seek to gain or maintain weight in a healthy way."

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.

Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between confe...
