A local businessman is having some early success with a new product. It’s sold through multi-level marketers, similar to Mary Kay.

But Clayton Fowlie isn’t selling make-up. He’s selling health, on a strip.

Fowlie brought Enlyten strips to the East Coast in January. The product delivers supplements through a strip placed on the inside of your cheek.

“Rather than ingesting supplements through the digestive tract, they determined going through the buccal mucosa, a highly vascular region of your cheek and gum, could deliver them more effectively and efficiently,” he says.

Enlyten was developed by researchers a few years ago. Fowlie, who’s the director of the Maine Center for Integrated Rehab, is hoping they’ll catch on in our area.

There are strips with electrolytes, antioxidants, melatonin, energy, and most recently, strips developed for weight loss.

“These are things people are using already. We’re just giving them a new delivery system,” Fowlie says.
