femMED health supplements for women will now be available in the Middle East, Turkey and Caspian Regions

Women in several other parts of the world will soon have access to femMED products, a Canadian-based line of natural women’s health supplements for a wide variety of important health concerns from breast and bone health to symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome, among others. The news comes as parent company Fem Med Formulas enters into an agreement with NewBridge Pharmaceuticals, a specialty therapeutics company commercializing pharmaceuticals, biologics, diagnostics and medical devices across the AfMET region.

The exclusive license and supply agreement will expand femMED’s market to include countries of the Middle East, Turkey and Caspian Regions. NewBridge will manage all aspects of the local regulatory approval process, as well as product sales, marketing and distribution.

The agreement gives NewBridge Pharmaceuticals licensing rights to all 13 doctor-formulated femMED supplements designed to address the unique health needs of women, including its flagship Breast Health formula which underwent a Health Canada approved, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial resulting in a proven mechanism to promote a healthy estrogen metabolite ratio. The study was published in the PubMed Index Journal, Breast Cancer: Basic & Clinical Research, as well as the Natural Medicine Journal. The other products in the femMED line are diverse, and designed to address symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS); support the maintenance of healthy bones, heart and weight; aid with sleep disturbances, declines in energy and libido levels; and improve the appearance of hair, skin and nails. The brand also includes a superior multi plus antioxidants formula and two prenatal supplements providing premium supplementation and management of nausea for mothers-to-be.

“We work hard to provide women with best-in-class supplements for their most common health concerns, and are excited to partner with NewBridge Pharmaceuticals to broaden our reach and provide our doctor-formulated supplements to women living in countries of the AfMET region.” said Shawna Page, founder and CEO of femMED. “Helping women live a healthy and balanced life is core to femMED. Being issued NPNs from Health Canada for all 13 of our formulations is assurance that our rigorous testing and commitment to women’s health, results in effective natural health products.”

“We are delighted to partner with femMED Formulas to launch a novel line of quality all-natural supplements to physicians and patients in the AfMET region”, said Joe Henein, President and CEO of NewBridge Pharmaceuticals. “This partnership represents an important addition to our growing product portfolio of therapeutics addressing disease areas for women. Introducing femMED, which consists of 13 doctor-formulated supplements will complement the unmet health needs and improve the overall well-being of women in our region.”
