Ritter Pharmaceuticals, develops novel therapeutic products that modulate the human gut microbiome to treat gastrointestinal diseases. We are advancing human gut health research by exploring the metabolic capacity of the gut microbiota and translating the functionality of prebiotic-based therapeutics into applications intended to have a meaningful impact on a patient’s health. Our first novel microbiome modulator, RP-G28, is currently under development for the treatment of lactose intolerance. RP-G28 is designed to stimulate the growth of lactose-metabolizing bacteria in the colon, thereby effectively adapting the gut microbiome to assist in digesting the lactose that reaches the large intestine. RP-G28 has the potential to become the first drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for the treatment of lactose intolerance.

The first thoughts of an organic company came during the summer of 2008 when my house was damaged by a severe storm and became infested with insects. Pregnant at the time and increasingly eco-conscious, I started reading the labels of traditional insect repellents and realized they were ridden with harmful chemicals and other ingredients that were unknown to me. Fearful of what these chemicals could do to my unborn child, my family and I began to research various essential oils and the properties they contained.
Shortly thereafter, we invested in a small machine that allowed us to mix small quantities of essential oils. After much research we wound up with a variety of oils, all of which had repellent properties to varying degrees. By dint of hard work and extensive mixing and matching we eventually derived a formula that actually repelled insects, was kind to skin and was safe. Sharing with friends and other family members led to positive confirmation of our findings and Greenerways Organic Bug Spray was born.
August Cruz talks about writing his book from the eyes of the stalker.
In "Stalker", Everest witnesses this remarkably beautiful woman perform one of the few acts of kindness towards a needy stranger he has seen in years, and the memory of that kindness awakens something in him that he thought was lost forever, hope. He resolves to find out more about this woman until eventually the darkness that has eroded his mind and soul over the years begin to take hold over him and drive him into a dangerous obsession – all without her knowing that he’s watching her every move. As he secretly delves deeper into her life, his own begins to unravel until one day, imagining her to be in danger and himself as her protector, he takes matters into his own hands with life-altering results.
