DUNCAN, B.C. (Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015) –Dr. Cory Holly, the popular and widely-recognized ambassador of sports nutrition, will help many active living Canadians and health food industry leaders better understand the benefits of whole foods, supplements and positive lifestyles as part of a comprehensive new educational partnership created by PURICA and the Cory Holly Institute.

The year-round partnership will feature retailer seminars, customer workshops and presentations at Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) trade shows, along with entertaining and informative content developed by Dr. Holly for www.purica.com and the company’s social media channels, including on Twitter (@puricawellness) and Facebook (PURICA Wellness).

PURICA will also partner with the Cory Holly Institute in the promotion of the Certified Sport Nutrition Advisor (CSNA) course that has produced graduates around the world.

“We’re delighted to have Dr. Cory Holly and the Cory Holly Institute join with us in our commitment to empower people; not only with the best in whole foods and supplements, but on the strength of education, information and advocacy,” said Jason Watkin, Founding Chair, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Formulator for PURICA.

“We’re inspired to provide natural supplements and positive lifestyle solutions that help people perform at the top of their game in life, at work and at play,” added Watkin. “Our partnership with the Cory Holly Institute is right on strategy with that bigger picture commitment that we have behind the PURICA family of products.”

The partnership will be officially launched Tuesday, June 9th, with a seminar at Health Essentials in Victoria, B.C. (more information 1-877-746-9397). Dr. Holly will also be speaking on behalf of PURICA at the CHFA East trade show in Toronto September 12-14. Additional seminars and workshops will be announced throughout the spring and summer and into the fall of 2015.

“Given the PURICA vision and values around empowering active living people, I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to use this partnership to help bridge the gap between whole foods, natural supplements and active lifestyles,” said Dr. Holly.

“Sports nutrition and science has never been more important, especially in this generation adversely affected by sedentary lifestyles and fast-food diets,” added Dr. Holly. “By working with PURICA, leading retailers and the many active living people who are interested in health and vitality, our partnership will go a long way towards promoting and widening the understanding of the benefits of whole foods and natural supplements.”

The new partnership with the Cory Holly Institute follows on the heels of the launch earlier this year of Provascin, the new heart health supplement that is one of the major milestones associated with the 15th Anniversary year of PURICA, one of Canada’s leading providers of natural health food products and supplements. The PURICA line includes Recovery, medicinal mushroom products such as Immune 7, Red Reishi, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Maitake, Shiitake and Coriolus and other supplements such as Nopal and Fiberlicious, Grape Seed Extract and Menopause Relief.

“Combining natural supplements such as Provascin, Recovery and medicinal mushrooms — with an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits — can lead to enhanced performance and improved heart health, cell and tissue health, brain health and other important body functions and processes,” said Tawnya Ritco, a Vancouver-based Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) who doubles as part of the team of product specialists at PURICA. “That will be a consistent message inherent in the educational partnership between PURICA and the Cory Holly Institute.”
