Our pharmacist team can help you with a customized solution.


At Associated Maritime Pharmacies Limited we understand that people are not the same and sometimes need medication made especially for them. Compounding is the science of creating custom medications from scratch to meet specific patient needs.

The amazing weight loss program


Our Guardian stores each have authorized Ideal Protein coaches to help you start living better today. Ask at our pharmacy counter how we can help you get started. 

The Ideal Protein Difference


Maintaining a stable weight after dieting often requires changes to your lifestyle habits. This is why Ideal Protein strongly emphasizes education and understanding. You must learn to eat “smarter” or risk regaining your lost weight. Therefore, when you begin our program you will be assigned a personal weight loss coach. Your coach will assist you through each of the 4 phases of the Ideal Protein method. In phases 1 & 2 your coach will help you set your weight loss goals and support you on that journey. In phases 3 & 4 your coach will shift focus to weight stabilization and post diet living, teaching you weight maintenance habits that may assist you in keeping the excess pounds off after dieting.


You will learn:

 • how your body fat is burned;

 • the relationship between insulin and weight gain;

 • which foods are best for healthy weight management

 • when, why what combination to eat carbs, fats & proteins;

 • and much more...

The Healthy Traveller - Travel Vaccinations Immunizations

Travelling? Make sure you have your vaccinations.


Any person, couple, family or group travelling to anywhere in the world for either work or pleasure can benefit from travel medicine vaccinations. 


The Healhty Traveller Pharmacist can reduce the risk of illness abroad by recommending the appropriate vaccines, medications and other safe practices such as food & water safety or disease-carrying mosquito protection.


It doesn’t matter if you are going to the Caribbean or along the Nile River in Africa, there are risks that we can help reduce.  We want you to come home with great memories of your travel, not malaria or typhoid fever.
