• photos should be taken in at least 5 different major pharmacies, or specialized stores/drugstores (DM style) – major selling points of high quality food supplements. Supermarkets or smaller local stores with lower price and lower quality products are not of interest – we are looking for the upper half of the price range.
• Photos should be sharp (readable) and contain the front of the packaging, back of the packaging (where ingredients are stated), brand (company) and price
• data from photos should be put into excel with the columns filled out in latin characters: company, product name, health area (beauty, gut health, immunity, cognition etc.)

• The included products should be targeted at one of the following health areas: iron supplements, immunity, prenatal (pregnancy), urinary tract, sleep, cognition, stress, vision, menopause, other women's health, fertility (but not impotence), bone & joints, pain, liver, cardiovascular. Priority should be given to the first 4 listed health areas and all iron products should be covered.
• Products that should be left out: sports nutrition, weight loss, energy, beauty, probiotics, and effervescent tablets
• It is very important that the top products and top companies in price and quality are covered.

• In at least 5 different selling points you should not only take photos of what is available on the shelf, but also go to the pharmacist/employee and ask if there are any additional iron supplements available behind the counter (not displayed) and document them as well.
