Cardium Therapeutics, Inc. (CXM) Prepares Launch Of Expanded VitaRocks® Kids Vitamin Line With New Retail Distribution

|Includes: Cardium Therapeutics, Inc (CXM)

Earlier today, Cardium Therapeutics announced that its To Go Brands® division has expanded its VitaRocks® kids vitamins product line and that retail distribution of the newly-designed products is being been expanded to include select Target stores.

The VitaRocks products are inspired by a popping pellet candy that is popular with kids and represents a next-generation, easy-use delivery platform for multivitamins and nutrients, dietary supplements, and potentially over-the-counter (OTC) medicines for children as well as adults. The Kids VitaRocks product line tastes great and delivers important vitamins and minerals needed by the body. Each packet provides 50% of Daily Value, so that children four and above can safely enjoy this nutritious treat twice a day. VitaRocks products include cherryBLAST, grapeGUSHER, the new blueRAZZ, as well as orangeBURST, providing 250 mg of Vitamin C. To Go Brands' adult VitaRocks C delivers a powerful dose of 1000 mg of Vitamin C in every packet.

"Special formulations allow VitaRocks to melt cleanly in the mouth and deliver vitamins and nutrients while being fun and great tasting. Unlike many other products in this class, VitaRocks require no mixing with water and can be directly consumed. While the initial product line was designed for children, with the success of new adult multivitamin chews and gummies, consumers of all ages are increasingly seeking easy-to-use and great tasting nutritional products, and we believe that our VitaRocks platform aligns with this important and rapidly emerging trend. Because of our unique manufacturing process, we now have the flexibility to expand the product line into formulas that could include enzymes, electrolytes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, as well as nutrients, and into other applications including OTC drugs," stated Hanna Wagari, Cardium's Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Current VitaRocks products are available through retailers, including Whole Foods, Sprouts and Vitamin Shoppe. The new product line will be available at the beginning of April 2013 in select Target stores, as well as directly from the To Go Brands web-based store at
