Engaged in the development and marketing of a line of revolutionary, new, non- prescription medicines targeting major consumer health needs including the treatment of migraine headaches, insomnia and tension-type headaches. PuraMed products comply with all FDA and other regulatory requirements associated with the manufacturing and marketing of its products. PuraMed BioScience, Inc. emphasizes science as the key to success. The Company has engaged leading researchers to conduct human trials as well as In-Vitro studies. On September 20, 2011 PuraMed announced that it has achieved national distribution with a major US retail chain.
4 Intellectual Property Clinical Studies: Although not required, PuraMed is committed to conducting scientific studies to provide independent third party validation to its claims. PuraMed has conducted studies that include: In-Vitro – Test tube or Petri dish studies. In-Vivo – Human trials. Patent – An initial patent on the LipiGesic M product is pending. As a result of the In-Vitro clinical work, PuraMed expects to further bolster its intellectual property by creating a new proprietary ingredient.
5 The Company To build a substantial and profitable business rapidly, beginning with three products developed by its founders, with markets collectively worth well over $6 billion in the U.S. To establish a leadership position in the highly fragmented non-prescription market by introducing a new kind of product line.

6 Are all effective alternative to both non-prescription & prescription products currently available. Have essentially no competition in the alternative category. Will compete effectively against established standard (non prescription & prescription) products - well prove it. Address predictably recurring ailments. No seasonality. The same consumers continue to suffer. Each customer becomes potentially long-term, substantial, recurring revenue. Product Pipeline: LipiGesic M, LipiGesic H and LipiGesic PM
7 Sublingual delivery is efficient and superior to most other delivery systems. Sublingual Delivery means under the tongue. Faster than pills. The capillaries under the tongue are very close to the surface enabling very fast absorption and action. Avoids the first pass effect. Since the drug is absorbed under the tongue it does not get broken down by the stomach and liver as in the case of pills and liquids that are dosed orally. What is Sublingual Delivery? More Than a Product – Its a Platform

Provide evidence to substantiate product claims to retailers and government agencies.
