The largest global speciality health and wellness retailer, General Nutrition Corporation (GNC), has helped millions around the world improve their fitness, their health and their lives with an extensive range of health and wellness products – and now these world class quality products are available in selected Clicks stores across South Africa.
“South Africans deserve to have access to quality products, and as the leading retailer of health and beauty products in South Africa it is the Clicks Group’s vision to bring cutting-edge products and premium brands to South African consumers,” says Sean Kristafor, General Manager of GNC South Africa.
With 200 scientific minds powering the research and innovation behind their products, GNC sets the standard in the global nutritional supplement industry. Offering a wide range of vitamins, mineral supplements, herbal supplements, sports nutrition and slimming products, GNC’s products address the needs of modern consumers who want to improve their quality of life and who place a major focus on their personal health and preventative self-care.
Established in 1935 in the USA and now available in over 8 400 locations in 55 countries, the company has devoted itself to ensuring that it remains on the cutting edge of nutritional science. From scientific research and new product discovery to the manufacturing and packaging process, GNC takes pride in its rigorous approach to ensuring quality products.
In addition to the care and research that goes into developing new products and discovering new ingredients, GNC leads the market in demanding the truth in supplement labelling – with all ingredients clearly listed – as well as ensuring ingredient safety for consumers. Each GNC product undergoes up to 150 manufacturing and quality checks to guarantee that it is not only safe, but also potent and able to deliver optimal benefits.
GNC is committed to providing quality sports nutrition products that are free of banned substances and that adhere to the strict guidelines set out by the World Anti-Doping Agency – making their products the perfect option for professional sports people.
“GNC promotes ‘living well’ at the core of their business, wanting people to make the most of their lives, their health and their fitness,” says Kristafor.
“This is why we’ve chosen to appoint as our brand ambassador for the year, arguably the most famous athlete in SA at the moment and the epitome of health: Chad le Clos.”
Le Clos, an Olympic gold medallist and world record holder, attended the brand launch event in Cape Town on 12 February 2014.
“Preparing for major races like this year’s FINA World Championships and Commonwealth Games requires a lot of time spent in the pool. I need to make sure that my body can withstand the pace. The fact that I can trust that GNC products contain only what is listed on the label and are made from the best quality ingredients available, makes it easy for me to endorse this world class brand,” said le Clos.
GNC’s range of vitamins, sports nutrition and weight loss products will be available at larger Clicks stores nationwide from 25 February 2014. Four GNC concept stores are set to open through the course of this year.
