(ZEXPRWIRE) Peter St. Lawrence is an American inventor and entrepreneur (inventurepreneur) who has teamed up with innovative nutraceutical and biotech developer Acenzia, Inc. to launch the first-ever patent pending oral nutraceutical pouch delivery system for distribution to the global market under the brand PRO-DIP.
The idea for the invention to put nutrients into an Oral Pouch came to St. Lawrence in his collegiate football days. While in a film session he noticed that close to 50% of his teammates were constantly using a similar oral pouch to “dip” (deliver) smokeless tobacco to their bodies.
In 2012 St. Lawrence felt the calling to begin the journey of inventing an innovative and market-ready product for the biotech and nutraceutical industries. He knew how notoriously fast-paced and competitive these fields were, but felt with his athletic background and innate product design abilities he had a decent shot. Midway through 2013 he leased a small live-work lab in New York where he spent two years engineering the Oral Pouch technology. Finally, in April of 2015 the Nutritive Oral Pouch was invented and its patent was submitted to the USPO. St. Lawrence founded PRO-DIP, LLC as a New York LLC. After the protype was perfected came the next major challenge, and that was to find a qualified nutraceutical manufacturer who would share in the vision of producing this innovation at scale and bring it to the global market. After 1.5 years of searching and meeting with countless manufacturers, St. Lawrence landed in Windsor, Canada where he met with Indrajit Sinha and Grant Bourdeau; the co-presidents of Acenzia, Inc. The rest was history. PRO-DIP® Powered by Acenzia is now recognized as the global leader in nutritional Oral Pouch tech innovation and distribution.
Acenzia is a highly innovative, pharma-grade GMP certified nutraceutical formulator and manufacturer that is widely known in the industry for its cutting-edge research and commitment to quality. St. Lawrence quickly noticed this when he stepped into Acenzia’s state-of-the-art 36,000 square ft. facility. One of things he like most was that Acenzia backed their products with unparalleled scientific research, which was unlike anything else he witnessed along his quest and interviews with previous manufacturers. St. Lawrence was further impressed with how vertical and versatile Acenzia was in their capabilities. Not only could they invent, formulate and develope novel products from the ground-up, they could also fully manufacture at scale for an ever-expanding nutraceutical industry. They’ve come a long way since their story first began, growing from a small start-up in 2001 with two employees and 8,000 square feet of space to a multi-million-dollar organization with connections around the globe. Now with over 50 employees, Acenzia is efficiently formulating, manufacturing, labeleling, packaging and shiping PRO-DIP to its thousands of customers across North America.
“We are proud to have Acenzia as our partner in the manufacturing and further development of this category-creating product,” said PRO-DIP’s inventor and CEO Peter St. Lawrence. “It took us almost two years to find a manufacturer who was willing to pioneer something completely original in an industry that has been hungry for inventiveness for years. Acenzia sharered the vision, answered the call, and we just never looked back. Since day one our mission has been to expand the reach of products that will be a benefit for people’s health and wellness on a daily basis. We believe this partnership will help us meet the ever-expanding demand for innovations that make people’s lives a little better, and we’re all in.”
PRO-DIP Energy’s flagship ION Energy Pouches are currently taking off in the U.S. market since mainstream distribution partners like J. Polep, Atlantic Diving Supply (ADS) and SportLife jumped on board in the first half of 2020. The PRO-DIP ION Energy Pouches deliver flavorful bursts of vitamins and natural energy supplements through small, semi-permeable sachets placed in the mouth, between the gum and cheek or lip. The material within the Pouch is a premium energy powder blend of natural B Vitamins, Caffeine, Vitamin C, Taurine, Beta-alanine and more. The initial burst of supplements is followed by extended delivery and absorption of the nutrients, providing long-lasting energy even at high-exertion levels. With its hand-free ease of consumption, the energy-rich pouches are an alternative to traditional sports supplements and deliver a daily serving of natural vitamins and nutrients for the endurance and stamina required during exercise and sports. One PRO-DIP® Energy Pouch is one serving and has 100mg of Caffeine, which is equivalent to one cup of coffee. The product is being dubbed as the first-ever “during workout” supplement.
