Event: What’s On with Watsons? NOW Supplements and Buy Generic Advocacy Media Launch

Hello again. A couple of weeks ago, I attended Watsons’ Press Launch at The Stock Market at BGC, The Fort. It was for the launching of NOW Supplements, which is the No. 1 Selling Supplements in the USA, and Watsons’ Buy Generic Campaign.

NOW Food Supplements and Buy Generic Campaign by Watsons Philippines.
Watsons’ Buy Generics and Save advocacy makes quality healthcare more affordable in the country.  
The campaign aims to ensure that consumers are educated to know the difference between trusted and questionable generics. To address the hesitations on buying generic medicines, Watsons will showcase the corresponding generic counterparts of branded medications. Watsons assures that these generic medicines highlighted and sold at the counter satisfy three important criteria, namely 1. Manufactured by a trusted pharmaceutical company 2. FDA approved 3. Sold by a reputable pharmacy retailer. 

Watson’s Buy Generics and Save Campaign aims for health management that is of good quality and more affordable. Eventfully, people will start to do away with self medicating, non-compliance to the full dosage of prescriptions, and delaying medical consultations at the onset of symptoms.

Watsons Personal Care Stores (Phils.) Inc. is part of the Health and Beauty Store chain of A.S Watson, the largest health and beauty retailer in the world. For more information, visit their website: http://www.watsons.com.ph.

Established in 1968 by Elwood Richard, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling health food brands in the U.S.A.  What started out as a small family business in Illinois is now an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a pioneer in the fields of nutritional science and methods development.  NOW Foods may have grown considerably since its humble beginnings, but it remains a family-owned company committed to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. 

What truly sets NOW Foods apart from other herbal and supplements brands is its unique philosophy of a natural and holistic well-being.  A healthy body is not enough; one must also maintain a balanced lifestyle.  NOW Foods supplements are specially designed to help individuals achieve their full potential, whatever they do and wherever they may be in life.  With a goal to provide health products that empower individuals to lead healthier lives, NOW Foods is able to help people nourish their passion.

NOW Foods is welcoming its first ever Filipino Ambassadors:  Melanie Siy Tan, a full-time mom and yoga instructor; Erwan Heussaff, celebrity foodie and health buff; Sam YG, popular DJ and TV host; and model and vegetarian Isabel Roces.
…with Sam YG ;-D
Now Food Filipino Ambassadors, except for Erwan Heussaff, graced the media event. As the NOW Foods product range caters to all lifestyles, the ambassadors hail from diverse backgrounds, but are united by their exemplification of healthy living and their unique drive to live life with passion.   
Part of the press kit was a bottle of NOW Salmon Oil plus other Watsons goodies. We have an existing Fish Oil Supplement, but I decided to take NOW’s instead. NOW doesn’t have any unfavorable after-taste and fishy scent, unlike our previous brand. 

Other  fastselling NOW Foods products are Acai Juice, Calcium & Magnesium, Cholesterol Support, CoQ10, Goji Juice, Joint Support, and Salmon Oil. NOW Foods is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Watsons. Watsons has over 250 stores in the Philippines.
