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.
