Firm launches WhiteHouse Apple Cider, stakeholders seek ways to curb drug abuse
The launch in Benin City, Edo State, was part of activities at the 37th annual national conference of the Association of Community Pharmacists of Nigeria (ACPN), which attracted community pharmacists from different parts of the country.
During the event, Pharmacy Plus unveiled the product and communicated its benefits to the participants.
Its Chief Operating Officer, Chukwuemeka Obi, said Apple Cider Vinegar was an ancient folk remedy, and had been used for various households, natural health remedies and cooking purposes.
He added that the WhiteHouse Apple Cider Vinegar, which had been in existence since 1908 was very popular among the natural health community because of its acclaimed benefits and included weight loss, reduced cholesterol, skin rashes, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes, among others.
“The product is a widely accepted drink in the United States owing to its long standing tradition of serving American homes with their brand of organic, raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar with ‘Mother’ since 1908.
“Through this launch, we are keen on making the product the choice health drink for health conscious Nigerians considering its many benefits.
“It comes in three sizes of 500ml, 1000ml and 2L and is available at all leading pharmacies nationwide.”
Deliberations featured contributions from community pharmacists to discuss drugs abuse, medications and their attendant harmful effects.
Participants offered suggestions on how best to discourage people from engaging in drug abuse, with the young and old as focus of the disturbing trend.
