The Science Behind VitaCig*
The VitaCig device is designed to deliver vitamins and phytonutrients via direct inhalation of rapidly absorbed vapor. Phytonutrients are compounds found in plants that provide significant health benefits. Every VitaCig includes the following base Vitamins: A, B, C, E, and CoQ10 (Ubidecarenone).
The "end of the day" VitaCig that can be enjoyed after a long day at work or before bed-time. Extracts of blueberry and black currant provide flavor as well as the potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients known as polyphenols and anthocyanins. B-Myrcene belongs to a class of aromatic plant compounds called monoterpenes and is incorporated for its sedative, muscle relaxant and analgesic properties.
The "go-to" VitaCig that can be enjoyed throughout the day for a refreshing and uplifting feeling. Oils of peppermint and spearmint provide flavor and a natural source of menthol. Menthol, a monterpene derivative, has analgesic, local anesthetic, decongestant, expectorant and cooling properties. Eucalyptol belongs to a class of aromatic plant compounds known as oxides and has expectorant, decongestant, antiseptic, bronchodilatory and cough suppressant properties.
The calorie-free "energy booster" that will help you get through a slow day. Extracts of orange and grapefruit provide flavor, vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids. Citrus bioflavonoids have been shown to provide antioxidant protection and immune system support. Orange oil is added for flavor and as a natural source of limonene. Limonene is a monoterpene incorporated for its stimulating, uplifting, antiseptic, and anxiolytic properties.

VitaCig and Future Electronic Cigarette Regulation
VitaCig, Inc. management believes that the VitaCig should not be classified as an electronic cigarette ("eCig"). With the exception of certain design elements, the VitaCig bears little technical resemblance to traditional nicotine-based eCigs. The VitaCig delivers a vapor that contains a mix of natural flavors and vitamins as opposed to nicotine, a regulated substance. The company is closely monitoring regulatory developments within the Electronic Cigarette Industry and is committed to operating with best industry practices. More explicitly, if guidelines or regulations are published that require standardization of components or testing for electronic cigarette like devices, VitaCig will be the first to abide by such regulations. In lieu of such guidelines, VitaCig is proud to have its products manufactured in facilities that abide by current globally accepted best industry standards such as: Restriction of Hazardous Substance Directive (RoHS) and European CE conformity marking.
VitaCig, Inc. Dividend and IPO
