Sports + nutrition

Fitness and nutrition are major factors when it comes to health. We've designed our loyalty program to provide a true Circle of health, because holistic health and wellness is paramount to a positive lifestyle. We've come up with fun ways to inspire better health. You earn bonus points by participating in fitness, nutrition, or wellness challenges, and can then spend those points on your favourite health and wellness products.

Vitamins + supplements

Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients required by the body to carry out a range of normal functions. Many of these micronutrients are not produced in our bodies and must be derived from the food we eat. Supplements can play an important role when nutritional requirements are not met through diet alone.

Sustainability

We use eco-friendly vials for medications and deliver using 100% compostable mailers.

Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.

What is Virtual Pharmacy?

There are plenty of pharmacies out there. Many of them offer delivery and some are on every block. The DrugSmart difference is our commitment to you, our customer. You can count on us to always:

Give you the best care whether in person or online. Get all of the convenience benefits like ordering online and free delivery without sacrificing the in-person level of care you receive from a pharmacist. One of our pharmacists will be dispensing your medication in the exact same way we do in-person – the only difference is we conduct your medication counselling over the phone. You can also easily book a free phone or video chat with one of our pharmacists whenever you need to discuss your medication. Our pharmacists are available 7 days a week.

Help you understand your coverage and costs. We get that insurance is complicated and often confusing. We will help you understand what your medication will cost, what can be billed to your student, private, or public plan, and ensure you're comfortable with any costs before we dispense your medication. 

Provide a true Circle of health. Holistic health and wellness is paramount to generating a positive impact on your lifestyle. Our loyalty program, Circle, is designed to provide fun and inspirational ways to better your health. You earn bonus points while participating in fitness, nutrition, or wellness challenges, and can then spend those points on your favourite health and wellness products. 

Do better tomorrow than we did today. From eco-friendly packaging to same day delivery to an enhanced e-commerce store, we continuously evolve and innovate. We're committed to creating wonderful experiences that ultimately generate better health outcomes. This is what it means to #BeDrugSmart.
