Revitalizing GNC Live Well

I witnessed GNC Live Well’s relaunch of sorts last December 1, 2010 at The Podium in Ortigas. Basically, GNC Live Well branches all over the metro will be getting facelifts, the new motif being bright white. It’s a far departure from the darker shaded wood-themed GNC stores of yore.

GNC Live Well at The PodiumGNC Live Well at The PodiumAside from showcasing GNC Philippines’ light new look, COO Frieda Lim also shared an array of health tips and pointers on how to avoid gaining weight this holiday season. She concocted a healthy fruit smoothie that you can have as a quick and healthy breakfast or snack.

GNC Berry SmoothieShe let everyone try the smoothie and it was very good! Cold, fruity, and refreshing plus it’s not overly sweet. I’d like to share the recipe here:

GNC Berry Smoothie

1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
½ cup cranberry juice
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 cup low-fat milk
2 ice cubes
1 scoop GNC Be Buff Powder

Combine strawberries, milk, cranberry juice, and ice in blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Add protein powder. Sweeten with sugar if desired. Serve immediately.

GNC ActiveCal Soft Chews

Then she let us try some of GNC’s products. First up was GNC ActiveCal Soft Chews.

GNC ActiveCal Soft ChewsIt’s like candy actually, each chew is individually wrapped so you can actually tote a piece or two around.

GNC ActiveCal Soft ChewsGNC Active Cal Soft Chews are sticky like caramel but with a light chocolate taste. It’s perfect for those who are lactose intolerant or those don’t like drinking milk because a single piece provides 500mg of calcium.

GNC Vitamoo Soft ChewsThere’s a kiddie version too, GNC Vitamoo Soft Chews. It looks and tastes exactly like the GNC Active Cal Soft Chews. It provides 300mg of calcium, which is equivalent to drinking one glass of milk.

Vitamin supplements at GNC Live Well, The PodiumI toured the store after the event. Vitamins and nutritional supplements for people of all ages and genders are readily available.

70% off GNC Triple CleanseThen I spotted this. GNC Triple Cleanse for 70% off! It’s a 3-week colon cleansing program. I’ve been longing to detoxify myself with the Lemon Cleanse but I have neither the time nor patience to make all the necessary preparations. GNC Triple Cleanse gives you three sets of capsules which can do the job in three weeks. You prep the first week, flush the second week, and then get a dose of probiotics on the third week. The original price was P2450 but since it was 70% off got it for only P735. I think it’s a steal! Can’t wait to try it. I’ll let you know how that goes. All the regular-priced items in the store sold for 30% off on that day, so I also bought a bottle of GNC Total Lean CLA supplements for P1200+. I’ll let you know how effective they are on me once I’ve tried them. 😀

You can actually apply for a GNC Gold Card which will give you 20% off on everything. It’s valid for stores located in the US too. 😀
