Dr. Weil's Vitamin Advisor Offers a Complete Supplement Plan Based on Consumers' Unique Vitamin Health Needs
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHOENIX - November 11, 2008
Weil Lifestyle, LLC, a leading internet provider of information, products and services that enhance health and well-being, offers a free online resource to help individuals take the guesswork out of your vitamin health. Andrew Weil, M.D., world-renowned leader in the field of integrative medicine, and his science advisory team created Dr. Weil's Vitamin Advisor®, an online tool for those seeking guidance on optimal supplementation. The tool provides visitors with recommendations based specifically on their lifestyle, medical concerns and diet.
Based on expert opinions and Dr. Weil's medical knowledge accumulated over 40 years, Vitamin Advisor's personalized vitamin health recommendations guide visitors in making prudent choices in supplementing their diet or modifying their existing supplement regime. Supplements can provide benefits to a wide variety of people, including those who are over 55 years of age; those following weight loss diets or who have irregular eating habits; and individuals lacking generous amounts of vegetables, fruits and whole grains in their diets. Nutritional and herbal supplements can also support those who have specific health problems or are taking medications that may deplete or inhibit the absorption of certain nutrients.
Using the Vitamin Advisor is simple. Visitors log onto www.DrWeil.com and select the "Vitamin Advisor" page, then complete a free online questionnaire on family health history, exercise habits, sleeping behavior and other lifestyle factors. The questionnaire takes about 15 minutes. The visitor is then offered a list of recommended supplements, and may then take the list to their health care provider, or to any store or online merchant to fill it. The visitor can also choose to purchase supplements directly from www.DrWeil.com. As an individual's lifestyle changes, they are encouraged to retake the questionnaire, at no cost, to determine the most appropriate supplements to consider that reflect their new vitamin health needs. To support these personalized recommendations, Weil Lifestyle offers products to exactly match the suggested formulations and ships them in personalized Complete Program, Daily Dose Packets directly to the consumer's door, making multiple bottles and confusing supplement regimens obsolete.
There is also the option to purchase condition-specific formulas from the DrWeil.com Web site in the Marketplace, without taking the Vitamin Advisor. These selections include: Dr Weil Condition-Specific Vitamin Packs; Antioxidant and Multivitamin Heart Health, Bone Support, and Joint Support as well as the option of purchasing individual Weil bottled products.
Consumers can go to www.DrWeil.com and click on the Vitamin Advisor tab to take the free questionnaire, get a recommendation or order the Dr. Weil vitamins in Daily Dose Packets.
