PURICA Wins Gold in 2019 Alive Awards Showcasing Excellence in Natural Health


…PURICA Immune 7 selected by retailers as best immunity product in national competition of leading natural health products

DUNCAN, B.C (Thursday, October 3rd, 2019) – For the second time in three weeks, PURICA has earned national recognition in the Canadian health food sector, winning a gold medal in the prestigious alive Awards for 2019. PURICA Immune 7 is the winner of the Retailer’s Choice Award in the immune product category, one of 34 award categories in the annual alive Awards (17 consumer choice and 17 retailer choice).

The alive Awards recognition follows on the heels of last month’s CHFA East at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where the Canadian Health Food Association awarded PURICA the distinction of Best Large Booth among the more than 1,100 exhibits showcasing the best in natural health, specialty and organic products.

Presented by alive Magazine, the alive Awards have been showcasing “the best of the best in natural health” – from immunity products and protein powders to coconut oils and multivitamins – for more than 20 years.

“It’s just so gratifying for the entire team at PURICA to receive this kind of recognition and support from the natural health food stores that vote each year in the alive Awards,” said Jason Watkin, Co-Founder, CEO & Chief Formulator of the Canadian-owned and operated whole food and natural supplements company headquartered out of Duncan, B.C. “We’re proud to be honoured given the meaning that the alive Awards have gained over more than 20 years, especially since we’re approaching our own 20th Anniversary in December.”

Canadian retailers voted PURICA Immune 7 as the gold standard in the immune category for 2019. PURICA Immune 7 is a full spectrum supplement with a proven 20-year track record of improving immune system performance. The comprehensive formula features six organic medicinal mushrooms and Nutricol, a powerful blend of natural antioxidants. PURICA Immune 7 optimizes immunity, wards off sickness and complements mainstream therapies.

“We thank alive Magazine and we thank our retailers for giving our company and PURICA Immune 7 this vote of confidence,” said Trevor Watkin, Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer of PURICA. “We’re particularly humbled to win the retailer choice award in the immune category given the respect that we have for the other nominees and finalists in the category. We understand the significance of retailer trust and this alive Award only strengthens our resolve to live up to these gold standards and continue to produce natural whole food products and supplements that truly make a difference for our customers.”

Both Jason and Trevor Watkin acknowledged alive Magazine for standing for “Peak performance for the conscious consumer” and how the performance of PURICA Immune 7 is something the company is most proud of.
