About Panaceutics Inc.
Panaceutics delivers personalized monthly subscriptions of “pill free” suspensions combining up to 20 active macro and micro nutrient ingredients in tasty puree filled pouches that are a convenient way to take individualized formulas of clinical nutrition and pharmacy grade dietary supplements. In several market trials, this delivery form has been found to be favored by a large majority over taking multiple pills. Cloud-based software is used to choose the right ingredients and dosage for an individual, and the formula is then sent to Panaceutics’ proprietary robotic system that builds a 30-day supply in a few minutes under cGMP quality rules.
