Certified Natural Products Advisor
LOCAL HEATH FOOD RETAILER RESPONDS TO GROWING INTEREST IN NATURAL PRODUCTS
Adds Services of a Certified Natural Products Advisor
As part of an ongoing commitment to the better health of the citizens of Sudbury, Mona Sims takes on the role of Advisor, having successfully completed the scientifically-based CNPA education program designed specifically for health food retailers. The education program is administered by the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) and contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on nutritional supplements in the country.
The CNPA education program was developed for the CHFA by professionals with expertise in naturopathic medicine and natural products at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
“Today, more and more Canadians are taking an active role in their own health and well being. In fact, the interest in natural products such as vitamins and herbal remedies has increased significantly,” says the owner of a local health food store. “With the increased demand comes and increased need to provide customers with accurate information and sound counsel. The CNPA is an essential course in this business; ultimately it helps us to serve our customers better.”
“When you visit a health food retailer with the CNPA designation, you can take comfort that he or she will be able to provide the latest information on natural-products and their possible benefits as well as expert knowledge on how to use these products safely and how to achieve maximum results."
Certified Natural Product Advisors can provide information on vitamins, minerals, herbal remedies, food supplements, and basic nutritional facts. “The Advisor in Sudbury can also assist you to choose natural products which are most appropriate for your needs and provide appropriate dosage instructions."
