Nutraceutical maker Glucose Health announced plans to relocate its small corporate office from West Palm Beach, Fla., to Bentonville near its manufacturing, sales and marketing operations. The new address will be 609 S.W. Eighth St., Suite 600, Bentonville, AR.

“We manufacture our products in Northwest Arkansas and all of our shipping and fulfillment takes place from this region. Combining certain functions with sales and marketing, which is already based in Bentonville will result in administrative synergies and efficiencies for our company,” said CEO Murray Fleming.

The nutritional supplement startup Glucose Health is preparing to pitch its powdered tea mix that helps Type 2 diabetics maintain blood sugar balance to retailers in the coming weeks. The drink mix is being compounded by John Lykins, a local pharmacist and the owner of Natural Solutions Labs in Gravette. Lykins also operates pharmacies in Lowell and Lincoln.

His pharma lab in Gravette already compounds and manufactures supplement products such as Happy Joints, which can be found on Wal-Mart shelves. The lab employs five but is set to double that as more retailers sign-on to sell the product in the coming months.
