Vitamin Shoppe’s telehealth service to provide access to weight-loss drugs

Whole Health Rx™ by The Vitamin Shoppe offers comprehensive weight-loss solutions for whole-body health, encompassing prescription GLP-1 medications, educational resources, and nutrition support.

The Secaucus-based Vitamin Shoppe on Wednesday said it launched Whole Health Rx, a telehealth service that offers a holistic approach to health solutions. The program aims to encompass prescription medications, nutritional supplements for whole-body health and guidance on lifestyle practices to support lifelong wellness.

Whole Health Rx is initially launching with a focus on weight-management solutions.  Monthly medication subscription to the virtual health care platform starts at an introductory price of $219, and does not require insurance, the company said in a statement. It offers virtual, streamlined access to GLP-1 agonist medications, including Ozempic, Mounjaro, Rybelsus and compounded versions of semaglutide and tirzepatide, via licensed medical providers.

Vitamin Shoppe said it was launching Whole Health Rx with weight management in focus but would expand the program to cater to other needs.

“Whole Health Rx by the Vitamin Shoppe is a meaningful evolution in our company’s mission to consistently and comprehensively support the health needs of our customers,” Lee Wright, CEO of the Vitamin Shoppe, said. “As a pioneer in the wellness space since 1977, the Vitamin Shoppe is uniquely positioned to offer a truly holistic approach to weight loss that unites proven pharmaceutical interventions with our unmatched expertise in nutrition support and whole-body health. As we continue to enhance the Vitamin Shoppe’s position as the leading destination for lifelong wellness, Whole Health Rx will expand to meet other health needs beyond weight management.”
