Herbal Pro, an herbal solution company that focuses on providing prevention and improvements to the most prevalent illnesses and diseases through herbal products is set on improving the health of Nigerians by providing easy access to health-related information via Nigeria’s first online health and wellness newsletter.
This was announced by Mr Kishore Uttamchandani, the managing director, at a press conference during the anniversary of Herbal Pro’s flagship product, EZ Slim at Ikeja, Lagos.
A previous study by Herbal Pro Limited showed that 89% of people suffering from high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are either overweight or obese.
The study also observed that people within the proper BMI (Body Mass Index) tend to manage and recover faster than those who are overweight.
According to Mr Kishore, a previous research by Herbal Pro pointed to the lack of insight about healthy living as one of the causes of obesity in Nigeria and the introduction of the online newsletter is aimed at providing information and advice on how to improve health through healthy living.
He said “there has been a significant increase in the level of Internet usage in Nigeria. The internet is a key avenue for researching and passing on information. Being a company that is into health and wellness, we would like to use the newsletter as another avenue to educate, inform and advise Nigerians on how best to live a healthy life. We believe that a healthy lifestyle goes a long way to reducing cases of illnesses.”
He also stated that subscribing to the newsletter is free. All you need to do is contact Herbal Pro via the phone numbers on the Herbal Pro website or via EZSlimNG social media handles.
Also at the event was comedienne and EZ Slim’s brand ambassador, Lepacious Bose. Speaking with newsmen at the event, Lepacious Bose emphasized the importance of weight loss and healthy living. She said “Being obese or overweight exposes us to a lot of health-related issues. I advise every Nigerian to take healthy living seriously”
Herbal Pro also announced new initiatives such as the introduction of other herbal remedies aimed at improving health and wellness and a contact centre where people can speak with nutritionists, health and wellness coaches for free.
