BHHS grad invents product that combats affects of altitude

Lisa Lent, former Brookings Harbor High School student, former flight attendant, and current chief executive and founder of Vitalah LLC, was featured at Chetco Pharmacy and Gifts during the pharmacy’s Customer Appreciation Day Friday

Lent and her sister Stephanie discussed and demonstrated Oxylent, an award-winning nutrition supplement created by Lisa in 2008 after she was diagnosed with pulmonary embolus, multiple clots in her lungs.

Never one to give up easily, according to her mother, Gro Lent, she began her investigation into a way to combat the effects of altitude, dehydration and poor air quality that can create a negative environment in the body and can lead to serious health issues.

According to her mother, Lisa, even as a young girl, was always determined to find answers to problems, and never gave up

And she was determined to find a way for herself and other colleagues to protect their health.

That determination and confidence kept her at it until, with help from a team of health industry leaders, she created Oxylent, a high quality multi-vitamin, with the idea of helping airline employees and constant air travelers.

However, Oxylent proved to be popular with many in other careers, and was rated as one of the top 10 products of the year by Vitamin Retailer, a leading industry publication,

Lisa said that Oxylent, the nutritional supplement she created for those who travel, has become the supplement for everyday life. She noted that it has been incredible to follow the progress of Oxylent.

She said, “Just last week we were in Florida where we trained 500 store owners and employees of The Vitamin Shoppe.”

Oxylent is available at health food stores and retail outlets, as well as online at www.vitalah.com. For more information, call 877-699-5368 or 877 OXYLENT.

  • No rest for the Street after a tough January
    Equities took a hit in January, while bond yields and the U.S. dollar jumped. As February kicks off, there will be a slew of corporate earnings and economic data for traders to parse through.
  • Bearish omen? Wall Street caps volatile January with 3% loss

  • U.S. oil spikes 8%, traders eye month-end short covering
    Oil prices rocketed more than 8 percent higher on Friday, their biggest one-day gain in two and a half years, after data showed U.S. drillers were slamming the brakes on the shale drilling boom. In a rally that may spur speculation that a seven-month price collapse has ended, global benchmark Brent crude shot up to more than $53 (35 pounds) per barrel, its highest in more than three weeks, after Baker Hughes data showed the number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States fell by 94 - or 7 percent - this week. Two weeks of relatively stable oil prices have helped shift sentiment after months of decline, setting the stage for the violent rebound on Friday afternoon. With drillers having idled about 24 percent of their oil drilling rigs since the summer, some traders may be betting that an anticipated slowdown in U.S. oil production is nearer than expected.
