NORTHVILLE, Mich., March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Boost, a health and wellness technology company, has closed a $1.25 million Series D capital raise to support the launch of Tespo, a proprietary system similar to a single serving coffee maker that holds an entire month of nutritional supplement servings in one fully recyclable disc.

"Our offering was significantly oversubscribed and we closed within three weeks of opening the round," said Ted Mills, co-founder of Life Boost. "We are in discussions to take in additional capital due primarily to the caliber of people involved and interested in Tespo."

The Tespo systems delivers on a simple vision: to eliminate pills forever and elevate quality in nutritional supplements by providing liquid formulas with only premium active ingredients — no additives, fillers or other unnecessary ingredients. The system also delivers a nearly 90% absorption rate versus just 20% in pill form.

"We know that consumers have pill fatigue, and yet there are no convenient, quality-based nutritional supplement alternatives for consumers," said Life Boost co-founder Jeff Linton. "The only scalable product offered by the industry today are gummy vitamins, but if you look at the active ingredients and sugar content in a gummy, you have to ask who is winning in this scenario. Today's consumers are incredibly savvy and they are seeking alternative products that provide real benefits." 

Tespo commenced a pre-sale in November 2015 and is launching with five product offerings initially.

"Our early adopters have been using Tespo for three months now and the feedback has been incredibly positive," said Mills.
