Renowned Nigerian Professor of Pharmacognosy, Maurice Iwu, and entertainment maestro, Charles Oputa a.k.a Charley Boy, have taken campaign for natural products for human health improvement to Gwarinpa, Abuja.
The campaign which marked the opening of Nature’s Emporium stores also featured introduction of its 100 per cent organic dietary supplements with zero additives to residents.
Opening the Nature’s Emporium store, Charley Boy commended Iwu and his team for promoting human health and wellbeing.
“I stayed youthful with natural products. It is a thrill for me that today we are having indigenous herbs which can also make you look as young and as boyish as Charley Boy, as long as you stay focused on doing the right and positive thing. I am very glad to be associated with this and to be the one to open this Emporium. Everybody in Africa must hear this message.
“If you want to live a longer life, apart from your lifestyle, you also need to invest in some of these. Health is wealth, I urge us to live a clear and healthy life.”
Promoter of the products, Iwu, said Intercedd Health Products Limited operates as a health and wellness company with specialisation in high quality herbal and dietary supplementary products.
“We want people to have access to the best of products that research can produce; products that has been certified to be safe and efficacious and can also help to promote health. This is a branch of our Bioresources Development Group. Nature’s Emporium is one of the constituent companies that make up the Group which I head.
“They are things produced here in Nigeria, they are essentially local, indigenous and organic. There are no pesticides in their preparation, no fertilizers added and no artificial fertilizers added. Everything is natural.”
Director of Intercedd Health Products, Mrs. Ijeoma Nwafor, stressed the need for people to plan to be healthy instead of waiting to be ill.
“This shop is Nature’s Emporium and is to promote natural food, natural products and natural supplements. The idea is to keep people healthy and not just to wait until they are sick.”
