Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 4, 2021) - Glow LifeTech Corp. (CSE: GLOW) (FWB: 9DO) ("Glow" or the "Company"), a biotech company focused on producing next-generation, science-backed natural ingredients, is pleased to announce the successful delivery of the first commercial production run of ArtemiC™ at its supply partner, Swiss PharmaCan AG ("SPC") in April 20211, and a second production run worth nearly $1 million2 CAD that is scaled to service the growing demand around the world.

Building on the Company's recent application to Health Canada for its natural oral spray, ArtemiC™, following its successful COVID-19 Phase II clinical trial (see Glow's release dated April 27, 2021), the Company's strategic focus is on expediting the launch of ArtemiC™ in Canada and beyond as cases of COVID-19 are spiking globally, with some countries seeing record numbers of daily cases as new variants circulate widely and vaccine shortages prohibit widespread access.3
"With successful COVID-19 clinical trials already complete, if Health Canada approves it, ArtemiC™ provides several advantages as an at-home oral spray. Being able to take the spray at home, at first signs of illness may help avoid a trip to the hospital and is a cost-effective way to distribute at large scale, compared to a complex injection supply chain," said Rob Carducci, Chief Commercial Officer, Glow LifeTech.
The recent successful production of ArtemiC™ and scaled up second production order of nearly $1 million CAD placed by the Company's supply partner, SPC, positions Glow with immediate product supply as it prepares to launch ArtemiC™ in North America. SPC is the global master distributor of ArtemiC™, which is manufactured by MGC Pharma.
"Our team has been carefully putting together the necessary logistics infrastructure which will meet the needs of today and allow us to scale growth in the future," said Tom Glawdel, Chief Operating Officer, Glow LifeTech. "Our supply partners, Swiss PharmaCan and MGC Pharma, have been significantly ramping up production of ArtemiC™ to fulfill the growing demand around the world."
ArtemiC™ is a clinically tested oral spray containing four natural active ingredients: Artemisinin, Curcumin, Boswellia serrata, and Vitamin C. The formulation uses the MyCell™ delivery system technology to increase bioavailability and effectiveness of natural active ingredients. Glow has exclusive rights to market, sell and distribute ArtemiC™ in Canada, U.S., Mexico and all Carribean countries as a food supplement (nutraceutical, dietary supplement, natural health product).4
ArtemiC™ was submitted to Health Canada's Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) on Mar 11, 2021. The application, which is currently under review by Health Canada, included supporting ArtemiC™ COVID-19 Phase II clinical trial results. Under Canadian regulations, all NHPs must obtain premarket approval by Health Canada to assure they are safe, effective and of high quality before being allowed to be sold in Canada. Once Health Canada makes this assessment, they are issued a unique Natural Product Number (NPN).
The Company is not making any express or implied claims that it has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the COVID-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.
