Bloc Products Ltd. is involved in the manufacture and supply of innovative healthcare products. Their current product range includes “PuriBloc”, a small water purification device that removes bacteria and contaminants in tap water and adds missing minerals and balances pH levels for healthier and fresher tasting water. A version of PuriBloc has also been designed for dog and cat bowls to help reduce pets exposure to bacteria and other contaminants – there is no similar pet product on the market. Also “NicoBloc”, a natural and drug-free method of removing tar and nicotine from filter cigarettes to allow smokers to either give up smoking completely in a stress-free manner or to keep smoking but with reduced health risks associated with the consumption of tar and nicotine. Products yet to be brought to market include the NicoBloc “NicoPen” device. A pen device the size of a normal cigarette to fit into the normal cigarette packs but operates like an epipen to dispense the NicoBloc product for the user. Sleek modern design and convenience for the user.”PainuBloc”, a device for curing lower back and many different body pain ailments associated to spinal pain etc. for which FDA registration is already in progress
The NicoBloc product is manufactured from 100% FDA approved food grade ingredients, is drug free and blocks up to 99% of Nicotine and Tar from the smoking experience without changing the taste of the normal brand of cigarette smoked by the smoker.
PuriBloc is NOT a water filter. PuriBloc is an innovative new product designed to purify and keep clean water clean. It removes 100% of bacteria from the drinking water, it balances the pH level and it releases minerals into the water in order to optimize the mineral content for human consumption.
It improves the taste of the water and keeps the water fresher for longer and prevents any bio film from forming. One PuriBloc capsule will keep working for up to six months and can process up to 1000 litres of water over this time. All clinical trials and efficacy results were conducted under Professor R J Russell, Associate Professor of Microbiology, Moyne Institute of Preventive Medicine, Trinity College Dublin.
