Xen by Neuvana: First-of-its-kind Vagus Nerve Stimulation Device Now Available to Canadians
U.S.-Based Wellness Tech Company Neuvana Expands its Footprint,
Marking the First Step in the Company's International Launch Plans
By: Neuvana, LLC
Xen by Neuvana is a pocket-sized device that connects to your mobile phone through an app and sends a gentle electrical signal through patented earbuds to stimulate the vagus nerve in the ear. Invented by a leading cardiac surgeon and supported by science, Xen's innovative design targets the vagus nerve, the longest cranial nerve in the body, which acts as the information highway from the brain to most of the body's major organs. When stimulated, the vagus nerve activates the parasympathetic nervous system by signaling the brain to release calming neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine and norepinephrine. This natural chemical process can help the body feel calmer, more focused, increase mood, and achieve better sleep too.
"We have had an outpouring of interest from consumers outside of the U.S. wanting to try Xen and experience the health benefits users have shared that improve their day-to-day lifestyle," said Vince Manopoli, CEO of Neuvana. "We are excited to expand our footprint to our neighbors in Canada first and deliver Xen into the hands of people who are looking for alternative ways to manage the health impact of stress, anxiety, and poor sleep."
Initially launched in the United States in 2019, Xen was specifically designed to meet the high standards of Underwriters Laboratories for Canada (cUL), a world leader in product safety testing and certification. The cUL mark applies to products intended for the Canadian market that have been tested and found to comply with the country's high safety requirements.
"With the safety of our customers always at the forefront, we continue to work diligently to meet the most stringent guidelines for our products according to each country's specific requirements,"
Starting this week, consumers can preorder their Xen product starting at $519 (USD) online at www.neuvanalife.com. The company will start shipping to Canada beginning October 18.
