Super Bowl Athletes Prepare for Game Day by Getting Feet and Hands in Shape

Callused, rough feet and hands are a common problem for professional and amateur athletes alike. When their feet and hands are not in top shape, it’s a silent factor that hurts a player's game. Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation, says, "A number of top professional football and basketball teams have used our products to keep their feet and hands in top condition, including the New York Jets, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, San Antonio Spurs and Orlando Magic." Xenna Corporation offers patented, natural solutions for discolored, thickened toenails, callused feet and hands and dry cracked heels.

Late last year their NonyX® Nail Gel was nominated by a professional football player to for inclusion in FX Sport's National Football League and National Baseball League Alumni Guide and Yearbook. Only products personally endorsed by a player are permitted to appear in these publications.

Patented NonyX Nail Gel is an ethanoic acid topical that rids toenails of their yellow or dark discoloration by exfoliating the source of the problem - keratin debris buildup under the nail. Dark or yellow keratin debris can build up under nails over time, causing them to lose their clear, healthy-looking appearance. A recent clinical study confirmed NonyX Nail Gel significantly improves toenail color and clarity by exfoliating yellowing keratin debris from under the nail, and is safe for use by diabetics. A 4-oz bottle is a three month supply.

Basketball players also need to keep their feet in top-notch form and are turning to NonyX Gel as one solution. Ted Arzonico, Head Athletic Trainer of the Orlando Magic basketball team, reports, "Basketball players are leery of new products, but when they see my results, it's a very different story. My nail looks really good."

In 2005, NonyX Nail Gel will continue to introduce its benefits to athletes by supporting professional golf tournaments and Little League Baseball instructional events. It can be purchased in the footcare section of Walgreens, Rite Aid, Longs, Drug Emporium and most Medicine Shoppe drugstores or from podiatrists and independent pharmacies. . Online sources are www.drugstore.com and www.xenna.com.

For calluses and cracked heels, professional teams such as the Jets have discovered newly patented Callex® Callus Ointment. It is the first foot product to use plant-derived enzymes rather than acids to exfoliate thick or dry skin. These enzymes are selective to dry, thickened skin and therefore do not irritate or burn normal skin, thinning only what needs to be exfoliated, while leaving normal skin moisturized and soft. Callex has been shown in consumer studies to reduce callus, dry, flaking skin and cracking on soles and heels within 15 to 30 days. It is also safe for diabetic use. Callex Ointment is available in the footcare section at Longs Drugs and online at www.drugstore.com and www.xenna.com.
