MADISON, Tenn., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- She has appeared on the big screen in films such as The Blind Side and Scary Movie 5. Her numerous television credits include a recurring role on "Drop Dead Diva," and co-starring roles in "Army Wives," "The Gates," and "The Game." But now, actress Ashley LeConte Campbell is undertaking a new role: She is the official spokesperson of AminoActiv®, the natural, non-toxic anti-inflammatory pain reliever consumers are increasingly choosing over aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and other NSAIDs.
Campbell's unique combination of skills and experience seem tailor-made for AminoActiv. As an actress, she has a strong camera presence, poise and voice talent. But Campbell also brings something to the table not many other actresses possess: experience in the pharmaceutical industry -- and, said Mark Faulkner, president of AminoActiv developer and manufacturer Vireo Systems, Inc., that gives her a deeper understanding of the benefits of a nutraceutical like AminoActiv.
"Ashley is a perfect match for AminoActiv. Before she went into acting, she enjoyed a successful career as a pharmaceutical sales manager and trainer, so she knows the industry well enough to recognize a product worth supporting," Faulkner explained. "Ashley will tell you she scrutinized the data on AminoActiv and found that it supports the fact that AminoActiv is an effective and safe pain reliever."
That was important to Campbell because she needed to be able to represent AminoActiv with integrity and conviction. As she pored over the safety and necropsy studies performed at a major university medical center, Campbell saw the research showed conclusively that AminoActiv delivers the same dose-related anti-inflammatory properties as ibuprofen, but without any ibuprofen side effects. Because AminoActiv does not inhibit cyclooxegenase enzymes, it is not a COX inhibitor like most popular NSAIDs.
"Because I worked for a pharmaceutical company, I understand a bit of what doctors look for, what patients seek, and what the data should look like," Campbell stated. "What is so impressive about AminoActiv is that it is as powerful as the medications doctors use on patients, but unlike NSAIDs, AminoActiv is completely safe -- and it doesn't just mask pain, it actually promotes healing. There is nothing else out there like this cool little molecule Vireo created."
