Family-owned since 1998, the Sarasota GNC’s opulent aisles display a wide variety of vitamin and mineral and herbal supplements, as well as sports nutrition, diet, energy, bodycare, and other health products. The Mega Men Sport multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets) supports muscle recovery and energy levels and aids speedy male metabolisms without dangling steaks in front of their treadmills. Fuel feats of female strength with the Women’s Ultra Mega Active multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets). Two pounds of Pro Performance 100% whey protein ($38.99) distract taste buds with the flavor of chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry and smuggle 20 grams of high-quality protein into the body in each scoop. Promote healthy bones with a calcium supplement, such as coral calcium ($27.99 for 180 capsules) sustainably harvested from the Okinawa sea to provide a healthy two-to-one ratio of calcium and magnesium.
GNC pumps up palates with energizing smoothies that help athletes perform at their best. The Strawberry Classic infuses mouths with sun-drenched strawberries, and the Brazilian Super Fruit smoothie crams antioxidants into glasses with açai berry, blackberry, pomegranate, blueberry, and banana. Punch up smoothies with add-in supplements such as protein (whey or rice), micronized creatine, multivitamins, or the powdered tears of vanquished rivals.
