We say a healthy mind lies in a healthy body and surely good nutrition is needed for the same. Most of the people in today’s generation ignore good nourishment and unknowingly are malnourished even after belonging to a good family. I recently attended a convention in Mumbai on Oct 10, 2017 organised by GNC (General Nutrition Centre), headquartered in Pittsburgh, US, and a leading global specialty health, wellness, and nutraceuticals retailer, is strengthening its presence in India through its association with Guardian Healthcare, the official importer and seller of GNC products in India.
Globally, GNC is a multi-billion brand and has around 9,000 locations and franchise operations in approximately so countries.
GNC launched the #BuildingBlocksofNutrition campaign with a panel discussion along with eminent personalities including Sheru Aangrish, Co-founder & CEO, Sheru Classic (First International level bodybuilding championship in India), Satnam Singh (first player from India to be drafted into the NBA) and Ms Noorie M Gada, a Professional Sports nutritionist.
The panel spoke about the need for additional nutrition intake apart from regular food in today’s day and age. The panellists deliberated on the fact that current prevailing hectic lifestyles, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy dietary habits, and lack of nutritious intake are causing serious health issues. Nutrient intake in the modern day is vastly reduced due to lower nutrient availability in soil, as well as long travel times reduces micronutrients in our intake through fruits and vegetables. The food we eat not necessarily provides the entire nutrition that our body needs. The panel agreed that the right balance of regular exercise, nutrient-rich food and dietary supplements are need of the day.
GNC is committed and invested to make a mark as premium sports nutrition and vitamins, minerals and health brand in its first interaction with the audience as the partners for the Sheru Classic event at lHFF (International Health Sports and Fitness Festival) from 13mm 15th Oct in Mumbai.
This convention has really helped me know the importance of proteins and that not only ones who desire a good body but also normal people can have an intake of it cause it helps to gain back the proteins that a healthy body desires.
