Newest online tool finds the right vitamins for you
(NC) With so many choices, vitamin and supplement aisles are often overwhelming. To make this shopping easier to navigate, one Canadian retailer has launched an innovative online tool to help us find the products we need.
At www.lifebrandvitamins.ca, the new vitamin finder can be used to access information about vitamins, minerals, supplements and natural health products that are available in any Shoppers Drug Mart store. A few clicks can yield important information about product benefits, ingredients and recommended dosage. The product finder can be used to search for products that support specific health concerns or conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, asthma, pregnancy, cognitive function, immune health, heart health and eye health.
“More and more people are finding their health information online, so it's important to get it from a trusted source,” says Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist Christine Yu. “Online tools like the vitamin finder make it easier for Canadians to find the information they need when it's convenient for them.” Yu adds that pharmacists are a vital resource who can answer questions about vitamins and supplements and check to see if they might interact with other medications.
Whether it's to support pregnancy or contribute to overall health and vitality at any age, there are many vitamins, minerals, supplements and natural health products to choose from. Shoppers often spend a lot of time scanning the supplement shelves searching for the products they need, the new online tool can help them find a lot of this information easily and when it's convenient for them
