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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
