Helios and their partner, Sunbio Corp, received Health Canada (NHPD) license certification for their branded ingredient called EstroG-100. This allows Canadian mfg. partners to use EstroG-100 in finished products and make up to ten end point claims concerning menopausal symptoms. EstroG-100 significantly improved 10 of 12 end points in their USA based Phase II human clinical study when utilizing the test model called the Kupperman Index. With the NHPD license and EstroG-100's NDI application and subsequent no objection letter from FDA, the USA, Mexico and Canadian customers can now receive the full benefits of EstroG-100 managing ten menopausal symptoms.

At the 2012 Engredea, Expo West Convention in Anaheim, CA Helios CORP was awarded the distinction as the " TOP Science Company" at the show. This was related to our continued effort to provide end use manufacturers with Nutra ingredient choices that are backed by human Phase I and human Phase II clinical studies. The benefit is that our customers have validated science backed to our Nutra ingredients which provides them the opportunity to make stronger or better structure function claims on their finished product labels.
