WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB: ILIU) today announced the launch of a free app for the iPhone and iPad that links the Company’s comprehensive suite of DNA-based weight loss web tools on the Inherent Health website (www.inherenthealth.com) to users’ mobile devices.
