Fontanella was launched in Australia in February and is the brainchild of Dr Mike Pukanic, a medical doctor with over 40 years' experience treating illnesses.
As an expert in the medical field, Mike set about educating his patients and prescribing lifestyle changes and recommending nutritional support by way of diet and supplements.
After several years, and seeing the great changes that these added recommendations were making to his patients, he wanted to make it easier with an all-in-one nutritional supplement that could offer the support for a healthier, happier life for all.
A healthy lifestyle and the right combination of concentrated supplements, can support vision, protect the body from damaging effects of free radicals, maintain healthy blood circulation and help you to feel stronger and more energetic.
Fontanella currently has two formulations available: Memory Boost and Super Antioxidant.
Memory Boost: A complete memory and concentration supplement consisting of seven powerful natural ingredients which work together in perfect harmony to support healthy cognitive function, memory and concentration, as well as relieving the symptoms of mild stress and anxiety. These seven natural ingredients support circulation of blood in the blood vessels in the brain, encouraging better energy and vitality in the brain, resulting in better long and short-term memory and improved concentration.
The Memory Boost formula has been made using powerful antioxidants, which have been shown to protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Free Radicals appear to be a major contributor to ageing, cancer, heart disease, degenerative diseases, a declining immune system and impaired brain function. By protecting the body from these Free Radicals, you can dramatically change your overall health. Memory Boost assists with healthy cognitive function, contributing to a better memory and supporting your healthy immune system functionality.
This supplement is not only recommended for the elderly, who often struggle with their short term and long-term memory, but also for anyone who needs improved concentration in their day to day life, including those with detail oriented or high stress positions requiring a higher level of cognitive function and better energy, as well as students studying at either a high school or university level, who need to remember large amounts of information and have high levels of concentration during long study periods.
Super Antioxidant: Antioxidants are one of the most talked about nutrients readily available in the health food market today. Commonly found in fruits and vegetables, antioxidants are essential to overall health, and the best advice for ensuring that you have enough antioxidants in your diet is to make sure that you eat your five servings of fruit and vegetables each day. However, specific blends of antioxidants have been shown to have different effects on the body, such as those found in the Super Antioxidant supplement.
There are several different enzymes in the body that hunt down free radicals, helping the antioxidants in controlling the presence of free radicals in the body, and contributing to overall health.
The principal micronutrient(Vitamin) antioxidants are Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Beta Carotene. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients by itself, so they must be supplied in the diet. Fruit and vegetables are an important source of Vitamin C and carotenoids, while whole grains are major source of Vitamin E. However, there are supplements available, such as Super Antioxidant and Memory Boost, that combine these enzymes and micronutrients with antioxidants, to create a free radical-busting formula, designed to support your overall general health.
Memory Boost supplements retail at $29.95 per bottle (one month's supply) and the Super Antioxidant retail at $39.95 per bottle (two month's supply), or you can buy as a bundle pack for $89.85. All products are available to buy online at https://fontanella.com.au/shop-now/
Soon to launch will be two new formulations: Libido and Menopause.

Question: What is the Fontanella™ supplement? What inspired you to create this?
Dr Mike Pukanic: Fontanella was founded and created by Dr Mike Pukanic who realised that there was a shortage of efficient formulas in so called complimentary medicine. As you know there is a mainstream medicine and complimentary medicine, both heavily regulated by Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
In mainstream medicine, big pharmaceutical companies use different drugs/chemicals derived or extracted from plants or animal products or synthesised in labs in order to protect their products with trademark and eliminate competitors. They do not use plants as they cannot be protected with trademark.
Complimentary medicine uses ingredients from plants (leaves, flower, roots etc.) which cannot be trademarked.
Currently Fontanella has two products/formulas Superantioxidant and Fontanella Memory Boost.
Question: Can you tell us about the ingredients found in this supplement? What are the benefits of the Fontanella™ supplement?
Dr Mike Pukanic: Superantioxidant contains 5 ingredients (listed on the label) working together in harmony assisting the body in fighting free radicals and maintaining its health and wellbeing.
Free radicals cause severe damage to the body like degenerative changes in different organs, speeding the ageing process and even cancer.
Superantioxidant protects the function of the retina, supports and protects the cardiovascular system and assists the blood circulation in hands and feet. This complex formula is efficient in protecting eye health, circulation and general wellbeing.
Question: What are the benefits of the Fontanella™ supplement? What types of illness will this supplement prevent and treat?
Dr Mike Pukanic: Feedback from satisfied clients is positive, many have experienced increased energy level.
It is important that Superantioxidant is taken regularly over a prolonged period in order to achieve the maximum effect. The same rule applies to treatment in mainstream medicine.
Complimentary medicine cannot cure diseases but can support the healthy body from damage caused by free radicals.
Fontanella Memory Boost is another formula consisting of 7 ingredients working together to improve healthy memory and concentration.
It is recommended for all people with poor memory, people working in demanding jobs and also students at different levels to support cognitive function, memory and concentration and also to relieve the symptoms of stress and anxiety.
Our memory formula cannot cure Dementia or Alzheimer's, but mainstream medicine cannot cure them either. As a matter of fact, mainstream medicine does not offer any support in confronting the problems of memory loss. Fontanella Memory Boost can support and improve symptoms of failing memory in many cases (but not in all naturally).
Feedback from customers is encouraging. Again, consistency in taking this supplement is of utmost importance.
Question: What's next for Fontanella™ supplements?
Dr Mike Pukanic: Fontanella is now ready to introduce another formula Fontanella Libido Formula with 4 ingredients to support and increase libido in men, but also possibly in women as well.
Another formula will also be introduced soon Fontanella Menopause Formula with 3 ingredients. It is designed to help menopausal Women to ease terrible symptoms of hot flashes, palpitations etc. The formula is completely natural and recommended for women reluctant to use hormones.
Several other formulas are being designed at present one of them is Anti-arthritis formula.
