HEALTH shoppers are having a spree at Star FitForLife Penang 2017 with irresistible bargains from exhibitors that even come with free gifts.

A not-to-be-missed item is 100 chewable Vitamin C tablets for just RM5 when you buy a bottle of multi-vitamins for RM25 at Georgetown Pharmacy’s six-booth station.

Product marketing manager Victor Tan said the tablets come in various flavours such as orange, grape and chocolate.

“With the cold and rainy season we experience now, children need Vitamin C to keep their immune system strong to avoid colds and fevers,” he said at the fair at SPICE Arena in Relau yesterday.

Georgetown Pharmacy is also offering up to 40% price cuts on a wide range of other supplements and with purchases of more than RM150, an extra RM8 rebate is also given.

The retailer is also offering bone density, body-mass index, blood pressure and sugar tests, while prices are also slashed by 40% for electronic health devices from blood glucose monitors, pain therapy devices, test strips, digital and infrared multi-functional thermometers.

Not far from Georgetown Pharmacy is the Sunlighten Malaysia booth, showing off its one-seater sauna cabin.

Capable of creating an infrared heat of up to 60 degrees Celsius, it will give you a thorough cleansing sauna treatment.

This wellness company’s cozy one-seater, medical-grade sauna cabin is so compact that it could fit well in your condominium or apartment, so you can get a sauna spell in the comfort of your home.

Its sales and marketing director Candy Oon said visitors could sit and feel the warmth inside the 2m-tall cabin, which is different from the traditional sauna.

Oon said the infrared light used emulates the natural radiant heat of the sun and the light easily penetrates human skin.

She said infrared sauna causes water molecules in the body to vibrate and release toxins.

“Other benefits of this sauna are detoxification, weight loss, improved blood circulation, relaxation, pain relief and skin purification,” she said.

Oon added that, at the fair, they are giving away sauna sessions at 50% off and the offer comes in a package of 10.

The sessions are conducted at the Sunlighten outlet in Gurney Plaza.

They are also offering free in-body tests, featuring body mass index along with visceral fat levels and other mineral level readings.

Sunlighten also is offering consultation on electrical muscle stimulation training, which is touted to be the first of its kindintroduced in the northern region.

Star FitForLife Penang 2017 is organised by Star Media Group.

The event partner is Great Eastern Life and Nestle Omega Plus is the wellness sponsor.
