With the objective of laying a foundation to “Live Well” amongst the Indian consumers, Guardian
Healthcare and GNC have identified four building blocks of nutrition – Multivitamins, Omegas, Proteins,
and Probiotics. Having complete nutrition is essential for a healthy life. However, just consuming food is
not enough, and today’s hectic lifestyle leads to incomplete nutrition. With over 80 years of expert
knowledge in health and wellness, GNC believes in bridging the gap created due to inadequate nutrition,
through nutrition supplements. These scientifically developed formulas undergo as many as 150 quality
and safety checks to ensure maximum Quality, Potency and Purity.
John Abraham, the newly-appointed brand ambassador for GNC India said, “GNC is a one-of-its-kind
brand devoted exclusively to helping people improve their quality of life and to encourage them to stay
fit and healthy. I have been a loyal, long-time customer and use a range of GNC products. The brand
believes in a holistic approach towards health and wellbeing. GNC’s vision resonates with my own
lifestyle and way of living. I’m delighted to join GNC India to create awareness about the right line of
nutrition for Indians.”
