Response Marketing Campaign for Type2Defense™. Bio-Solutions today announces
a major step in their company's expansion process across the USA and

that has been developed to help support healthy blood glucose levels in
health-conscious individuals and those diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. The
Product's goal is to provide a safe and natural supplement that will assist in
the stabilization of healthy glucose levels along with providing strong

launching our unique product via direct response television in the USA, and

exclusively or as a complement to traditional treatment. GVP Digital Media, a

their media contacts and network of brokers, sales consultants and agents. GVP
has already started test marketing Type2Defense in a National radio campaign.
