Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Health Science
Fermentation has been traditionally used to preserve fresh foods and improve their shelf life, increase nutrient density, and enhance flavour. Fermented foods and beverages like apple cider vinegar, olives and miso have also been shown to contain health-promoting phytonutrients, especially polyphenols.

These days, modern health science is both validating and continuing to evolve many of the world’s food fermentation methods developed over hundreds of generations. We now have access to a great number of convenient bioavailable, nutrient-dense superfood products.

Our October flyer features savings on fermented foods, drinks and nutritional supplements as well as some of your favourite staple brands.

Summer Challenge Week 8: Replenish Your Minerals

Just like vitamins, minerals help your body stay healthy. Your body uses minerals to perform many different functions from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses.

MAGNESIUM

  • You lose it when you sweat, making it even more important to supplement through the hot months. Magnesium also helps with insulin regulation, sleep, mental health, muscles and more!

IRON

  • Symptoms of low iron don’t show up as easily in the summer. Why? Because we are tanned (masking dark circles and pale skin). We also often have our hair up and under hats (hiding hair loss).
