SUGAR LAND, TEXAS, January 10, 2007 – Bluebonnet Nutrition is proud to sponsor the first in a series of free online educational seminars through Virgo Publishing’s Nutrilearn.com website geared towards retailers in the natural products marketplace. Set for Thursday, March 29 at 2:00pm EDT, the first retailer Webinar entitled: "The Most Relevant Breakthrough in Baby-Boomer Nutrition Since Glucosamine: Ubiquinol - The Active Form of CoQ10 " will be presented by Carl Germano, RD, CNS, LDN, clinical nutritionist, best-selling author, frequent radio guest/lecturer and SVP, R&D at Millennium Biotechnologies. With more than 20 years of product development experience, Mr. Germano has been instrumental in bringing some of the most cutting-edge nutritional ingredients and formulations to the dietary/medical supplement industry.
This free retailer Webinar will focus on the science behind this revolutionary ingredient and how converging health factors in the baby-boomer market as well as the tremendous growth of CoQ10 sales over the past decade make Ubiquinol the most important innovation to hit the senior market in years. In addition, this online presentation will address how the technical challenges were overcome in stabilizing and manufacturing this ground-breaking ingredient. Q&A will follow the live presentation. Registrations for this complimentary retailer Webinar are being accepted online at www.nutrilearn.com
“Instead of taking valuable time away from the store by attending off-premise seminars or trade shows in addition to incurring the expense,” adds Bob Barrows, Jr., “we wanted to offer retailers an easy and convenient way to get informed and providing a Webinar through Virgo’s Nutrilearn.com made perfect sense. By sponsoring these types of complimentary online educational opportunities, our retail partners and their staff can remain informed in the comforts of their own office. Plus, if you join the presentation live, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to Mr. Germano, which will be addressed during the Q&A session at the end of the presentation.”
“Virgo Publishing and Bluebonnet have a common goal – to educate the retailer, and ultimately the consumer,” said Peggy Jackson, Director of Publishing for Virgo Publishing’s Health & Nutrition Division. “Nutrilearn.com offers free online training and education programs based on articles in Natural Products Marketplace (formerly known as Health Supplement Retailer), so offering this informative complimentary retailer Webinar with Bluebonnet is a natural extension.”
“A Certificate of Completion will also be issued to each participant when they attend our free live retailer Webinars to provide retailers with the confidence that their staff utilized this convenient educational resource,” continues Bob Barrows, Jr. “And, if for some reason the retailer and/or his or her staff members cannot attend this event at the time scheduled, each retailer Webinar will be recorded and made available online at www.nutrilearn.com to listen to and to download at any time at absolutely no cost.”
“It’s our way of giving back to our retailers who have supported us so loyally over the past 16 years culminating in Bluebonnet being awarded Vitamin Retailer’s 2006 Manufacturer of the Year,” concludes Gary Barrows. “Plus, we believe that a unique product mix, which Bluebonnet has exclusively offered natural products retailers since its inception AND EDUCATION are the primary features that separate independent retailers from the mass market; therefore, keeping retailers and their staff conveniently educated is a win-win situation.”
