Our Customers’ Top Picks

You may have tried one of our best-selling products, but I thought it would be fun to share what I call “Customer Top Picks” from each of our departments and a little about why our customers & staff all love these products:

SUPPLEMENTS:

1)  NEW EARTH DYNAMICS RESTORE Fulvic Acid & Trace Mineral liquid. Dr. Zachary Bush of Revolution Health Center in Scottsville, VA helped formulate this groundbreaking supplement for digestive & immune health. Clinical studies at UVA proved the claims that by supporting the tight junctions in the intestinal tract, RESTORE promotes bowel ecology, immune function and mental clarity. It comes in a 3 week 8 oz size and a 3 month 32 oz size. The positive feedback from customers on this product has been astounding and it is our #1 seller in the Supplement department. http://www.newearthdynamics.com

2) Arnica Montana 30C pellets and Arnica Gel or Cream. These are staples for your first aid cabinet, whether you are 2 or 102. Arnica is a go to for bruising, muscle pain, stiffness, swelling, and athletic overexertion pain. Take 5 pellets under the tongue as needed, or rub on the cream or gel for relief.

3) Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega. Nordic Naturals has long been lauded for their exceptional fish oil quality and sustainable practices. 100% of the fish used in Nordic Naturals products are line caught and processed with minimal environmental impact. They use the superior natural triglyceride form of fish oil, which studies show has 70% better absorption. Whether taking fish oil for cardiovascular, joint, skin, or mood, Ultimate Omega is a therapeutic level of fish oil free of heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, backed by research and has no fishy after taste.

BODY CARE & GIFT ITEMS:

1) Close to 1,000 pairs of locally made GG Beads earrings have sold over the past year. Earlysville jewelry designer, Gayle Guiterrez, comes by every few months after a bead show buying spree and prolific creative period and I hand pick hundreds of new and unique earrings. All posts are stainless steel and free of cadmium and nickel and the best part, after their beauty, is the $8.00 price tag!

2) Natural Beeswax candles in all shapes & sizes. Beeswax candles burn cleanly with no sticky, black petroleum based soot, are non-toxic, long-burning, dripless (in draft-free rooms) and are a natural air cleaner that produces negative ions, plus the smell WONDERFUL. We have a large selection and they consistently are customer top picks.

3) Thayers Alcohol Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner. Maybe it’s the rumor that Rose Thayer looked 10 years younger than her age her whole adult life because of using this formula. Most likely it’s the purity of the un-distilled witch hazel and organic herbs and how soft it makes your skin feel that makes this an inexpensive top seller.

2) GoMacro bars were requested by a customer and have been a hit ever since they graced our shelves. They are USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan and have options for all palates such as Peanut Butter Chocolate, Cashew Caramel and Sesame Butter & Dates. The Cherries & Berries is my favorite!

Grocery:

1) 6,000 bottles sold over the past year indicates that Watt-Ahh is more than just your average bottle of water. The water is restructured to activate the hydrogen to make the water more stable and hydrating. The label claims it recharges your immune system for healthy cellular and mental energy. Customers and staff alike love it! Try a bottle and see how you feel!

2) Sami’s Bakery Gluten Free Breads, Lavash, Bagels, Rolls, Flax Chips & Cookies fly off the shelf every single day. They are fresh and tasty and consistently prove to be a staple in the diets of many of our gluten-free customers or those simply seeking great taste.

3) Taste Nirvana Coconut Water. Clean, clear taste distinguishes this sugar-free, preservative-free coconut water and it provides wonderful hydration and electrolytes. Our customers favor this, as do we!

4) EPIC 100% Grass Fed Bison bars fly out of here by the case. The Bison Bacon Cranberry is the top pick of customers and staff alike, but there are several healthy EPIC options in Beef, Lamb or Turkey jerky as well.

4) Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate powder is a grass-fed beef supplement recognized by the Weston Price foundation. Being cold water soluble, it easily dissolves into most any liquid without altering taste or consistency. It helps to regulate the body’s metabolism and because of its low molecular weight it is easily absorbed. Our bodies have a natural ability to repair supportive connective tissue, however, after the age of 25 the body stops producing collagen on its own. This powder provides necessary amino acids to the body to repair joints, hair, skin, digestion and more and has an ever increasing fan club, led by our Grocery Assistant Manager, Denice.

Freezer & Fresh:

1)  Our locally sourced eggs are all free range using non-GMO feed. They often sell out within a day of arrival, so you are welcome to call before you come to see if we have any in stock. The hens can’t keep up with demand because the egg yolks are bright orange and the eggs are TASTY! We usually get hundreds of dozens in our deliveries on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but they fly outta here!

2) Wolf Creek (Animal Welfare Approved) & Polyface locally sourced grass fed beef and poultry taste divine and are kept in our freezers. As the staff says, “they taste like meat should taste”. Try some today!
