43 Receive Recognition for Innovation and Dedication In Skin and Muscle Health and Wellness

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- (SAM) announced today, the recipients of the 2018

Awards for Excellence in Skin and Muscle Health. Those awarded have proven innovation in their respective fields. "It is an honor to award those who have surpassed dedication, determination, and distinction in health and wellness," expressed SAM Editor, Mandy Murry. "Congratulations to all of our 2018 winners. It has incredible to get to know your work and share it."

A total of 43 awardees complete this year's fifteen categories, including skin care, mental health, microbiome, oncology, and muscle health. As health care continues to shift towards more preventative measures, the work of SAM award recipients is more vital than ever. Aaron Gani, CEO of BehaVR, who placed first in SAM's mental health category stated, "Behavioral health is such an important part of overall well-being, and we are delighted to be recognized for our work helping patients overcome chronic pain and improve stress resilience."

Leading edge researchers, doctors, and companies are understanding more about our microbiome than ever before. With skin playing a vital role in our health, both education and products such as Mother Dirt and Lexli are needed to help protect and revitalize. "It is a great privilege to have two Lexli products honored with a SAM Award," said Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, founder, and president of Lexli Skin Care. "We truly believe that our products' combination of a pure aloe vera base with advanced active ingredients of the highest quality represents a game changer in the skin care industry. Recognition with a SAM Award only solidifies this fact."
