PITTSBURGH — GNC on Tuesday extended its Preventive Nutrition brand to help supplement a number of conditions, including eye health, liver health and digestive health.
"Health and wellness is important to men and women of all ages, and their health concerns are far-reaching and can range from supporting brain health to healthy digestion and cholesterol," stated Tom Dowd, EVP, chief merchandising officer and general manager for GNC. "This extension of our Preventive Nutrition line is part of GNC's goal of providing consumers with the best innovative products the nutritional supplement industry has to offer."
