PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Ten thousand Americans enter the ranks of senior citizenship each day, making senior nutrition absolutely vital to society and to many households. Research has shown that proper nutrition in individuals aged 60 and above can help to mitigate certain disease conditions associated with aging. However, many seniors are not getting adequate nutrients from their diet alone. This month, Kirkman® launched their new 60 to 90 Senior Essentials supplement line to give seniors adequate nutrition and to help them, and anyone who cares for them, attain 30 additional years of healthy living.
The Kirkman's Senior Essentials supplement line offers nine proprietary products that specifically target the nutritional needs of seniors. They include a multi-vitamin for women that help support the urinary tract and a men's multi-vitamin with ingredients that support a healthy prostate.
The other products in the line focus on specific areas of senior health and include the following:
- 60 to 90 Memory Boost (3936-090): A supplement that supplies 100 mg of the important nutrient phosphatidylserine, which is showing promise in maintaining cognitive function and memory.
- 60 to 90 Advanced Eye Care Support (3939-060): A supplement containing lutein and zeaxanthin, two powerful carotenoids that promote good vision.
- 60 to 90 Heart Support Omega-3s (3938-120): An easy-to-swallow and odorless supplement containing essential omega-3 fatty acids.
- 60 to 90 Super CoQ10 (Ubiquinol) (3934-090): The reduced and more absorbable form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which eliminates the conversion process of CoQ10 in the body, in 100 mg capsules.
- 60 to 90 NK Killer Cell Support (3510-060): A supplement that blends natural antioxidants with special antioxidants CoQ10, lycopene, pycnogenol and resveratrol, which help reduce free radical activity and potential cell damage.
- 60 to 90 Vitamin D-3 4000 IU (3434-120): A 4000 IU vitamin D-3 capsule to help maintain sufficient vitamin D status and reduce the rates of disease formation.
As with all products that Kirkman® manufactures (except lotions, creams and oils), Kirkman's 60 to 90 Senior Essentials supplement line is Ultra Tested®, which means that it has been purity tested for more than 950 environmental contaminants. No other nutritional supplement company in the world even comes close to Kirkman's purity testing standards.
Kirkman® is the leading manufacturer of nutritional supplements for individuals with special sensitivities and dietary requirements. Founded in 1949, Kirkman® is also the oldest nutritional supplement company serving the special needs community. This experience has allowed Kirkman® to pioneer effective products in many areas of nutritional supplementation for individuals with special health needs.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
