PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuance Health, LLC, a company that develops products designed to help people maintain good health, today introduced Swype, a new product that enhances defense against viruses at the body's most vulnerable spot – the nose. In independent lab studies, the ingredients in Swype killed over 99.9% of 25 viruses that cause colds and flu. Dr. Kent New, a physician with a PhD in Immunology and Microbiology, developed Swype to help stop the spread of illness in his young family.
"My goal when creating Swype was to develop a gel that was tough on viruses while being gentle on the skin. And since Swype is applied to the entrance to the nose, I knew people would want it to be invisible," said Dr. Kent New, creator of Swype. "I used as many natural ingredients as possible, as long as they were proven safe and effective. And I made sure to avoid zinc and alcohol since there are reports that they are potentially toxic to the nose and airways."
Dr. Kent New came up with the idea for Swype by using his knowledge that viruses typically spread through hand-to-hand contact, and make you sick when they enter your body through your mouth, eyes, and especially your nose.
"Swype worked so well for my family that I decided to make more in order to share it with friends. As requests for Swype increased, my wife and I decided to start Nuance Health so we could provide Swype to more people and spread the benefits of good health," said Dr. Kent New.
Swype is available on the Swype website (www.SwypeForHealth.com). A tube that lasts approximately 2 months costs $12.99.
