BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- mCig, Inc. (OTCQB:MCIG) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary VitaCig, Inc. has officially launched two exciting new flavors: VitaCig® Calm and VitaCig® Grace targeting stress-reduction and skin rejuvenation.

New Flavors – "Calm" and "Grace"
When you need to de-stress or enjoy a moment of serenity throughout the day try VitaCig "Calm" the only nicotine-free eCig with Valerian. Valerian is widely used around the world for relieving mild nervous tension and sleep disorders. Also known for antispasmodic properties, dysmenorrhoea, and menstrual cramping relief. It can be beneficial for relieving pain from migraine & rheumatic pain.
Flavors: Matcha green tea + vanilla bean and valerian, a natural herb that has been shown to reduce anxiety and assist with insomnia. Encased in a snow-white colored casing.
Vaporized Skincare - the only nicotine-free eCig with Collagen, the most important structural protein in the human body. The degradation of collagen causes wrinkles and other skin issues. As a result, collagen is one of the most popular supplements due to its skin healing properties that are considered to be the "glue that holds the body together".
Flavors: Mint + light cherry and collagen. Encased in a shiny metallic gold casing.
Every VitaCig® includes the following base Vitamins A, B, C, E, and CoQ10.
"Today we announced our entrance into two new markets: Skincare, and stress-reduction. Collagen is the only protein which the body is unable to regenerate on its own. As women age, they need to supplement their collagen loss. Many women world-wide take collagen pills on a daily basis and the industry is one of the fastest growing in the nutritional supplement space. Unlike the other VitaCigs, we chose to encase "Grace" in a sleek and shiny metallic gold, appealing to women as an accessory item like lipstick. We are very excited about VitaCig "Grace" and believe it has the potential to become category-killer. VitaCig "Calm" was perfected over nearly two months of rigorous testing. The natural matcha green tea extract coupled with vanilla-bean produces an incredibly soothing and satisfying flavor that we hope will become synonymous with our brand. This calming flavor is coupled with the delivery of valerian extract, one of the most impressive compounds in the world that has shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce stress levels," said Mark Linkhorst, CEO of VitaCig, Inc.
"When we launched VitaCig, we had no idea how much this product would positively affect the lives of our customers. Since launching only three months ago, we have listened to our customers and have innovated accordingly. The more customers use the product, the quicker they realize that VitaCig® is nothing like a traditional electronic cigarette. While it appears to satisfy ones urge to quit smoking traditional nicotine cigarettes, it more closely resembles chewing gum in terms of a consumer product. In other words, there are a multitude of additional applications we can address with this technology while mitigating the urge to smoke. As we have always stated, we see mobile vaporization technology as a unique opportunity to more efficiently deliver compounds/nutrients into the human body," said Paul Rosenberg, CEO of mCig, Inc. the parent of VitaCig, Inc.
