Military-Strength Anti-Bleeding Product Coming to Stores

It may not be in your medicine cabinet just yet, but Celox—which is billed as a product that stops bleeding fast---is coming to a supermarket or major retailer near you later this year and is already available on line, according to National-Certa officials in the Town of Tonawanda who say it is great for seniors, adults, children and even pets.

So what is Celox? According to literature describing the product, it was originally created and used for years by the military but the same military-strength, hospital grade products are now available to non-military markets and will soon be showing up at major local retailers here in WNY, according to local distributors.

CELOX, which comes in granules, dressing, and gauze, has FDA approval and is described as able to stop nosebleeds and minor, moderate and severe bleeding and is deemed safe even for people who take anti-coagulant blood thinning medications.

According to literature we examined, the U. S. Navy tested five treatments for severe bleeding and Celox gauze had the highest rate of survivability of them all.

The Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), described as responsible for recommending the frontline medic training and equipment for all U. S. front line troops, voted to approve the use of Celox Gauze, paving the way for troops to include it in their packs.

Chris Marsden from MedTrade said, "Celox works alongside other innovations from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, such as the new tourniquets and drugs that help keep clots intact. It stops bleeding with simple pressure and is suitably rugged for front line use. We're delighted with this review by the CoTCCC and to be able to make a difference in this area."

It is described online as perfect for home or travel and also great for pets who suffer minor bleeding injuries.

According to local officials, the product will soon be sold locally in kits that include granules, a gauze roll, and a nosebleed dressing. You can buy the products online at or by calling the local distributor's office at 716-328-8981.
