Evergreen in Eyre Square, Galway

This issue store manager Polly Morgan, assistant manager Lisa Caulfield and sales assistants Mairead Noonan and Aoife Redpath review cherry kefir, a bone broth, scrub bar, multivitamin and magnesium supplement.

1. BONE BROTH

Lisa says: “Sadie’s Kitchen Comforting Chicken Bone Broth is cooked slowly, resulting in a delicious, nutrient-dense drink. I like to take some every day and find that in times of infection, it can thin mucous and clear nasal passages. I drink it on its own, but it can also be a good base for a soup or stew.”

2. MUSHROOM POWDER

Polly says: “I’m excited to see mushrooms becoming more popular in health food stores. I’m taking Lion’s Mane powder from Organic Mushroom Nutrition every day in a hot drink. I feel more alert yet calm at the same time.”

3. MULTIVITAMIN

Polly says: “Solo Nutrition Multififty is a seriously strong multivitamin containing 50 nutrients. It also contains an impressive 50mg of CoEnzyme Q10 in each capsule. It’s a one a day formula which I find handy when I’m on the go. I find it great for energy and blood sugar balance.”

4. SCRUB BAR

Mairead says: “Nia Firming Scrub Bar is a lovely poppy seed, cocoa butter and coconut oil exfoliator that scrubs deep down into your pores. The coconut oil heals as it moisturises. It’s Irish made, plant based and it smells great.”

5. MAGNESIUM SUPPORT

Lisa says: “MAG365 is one of my favourite products because I find it useful for so many things. It’s great for all symptoms of PMS and gives relief from tummy cramps. It is also helpful for stress and anxiety and even sleep problems. It tastes great too!”

6. CHERRY KEFIR

Aoife says: “Bio Dairy Morello Cherry Kefir is such a nice way for me to get some of my daily probiotics. I find my digestion and skin improving after taking this for a few days in a row. It’s a great recommendation for kids too.”

Raw Health Foods and Sligo Wellness Centre

This issue owner and chiropractor Grainne Gilmartin, massage therapist Coeurine Murray, nutritionist Doris Rabe, acupuncturist Shane McMunn, psychotherapist Jacinta Kelly and shop assistants Leah McVeigh and Outi Kater review vitamin D, eco cleaning products, black seed oil, cherry concentrate and a brain support

BRAIN SUPPORT

Coeurine says: “Eskimo Brain 369 helps me with concentration and those busy days when I might be feeling forgetful. It’s a great brain booster.”

VITAMIN D SPRAY

Grainne says: “I love the Better You Vitamin DLux3000 D3 spray. It gives you a nice high dosage and is very convenient for keeping in your bag.”

CHERRY SUPPLEMENTS

Doris says: “Viridian Cherry Night is an amazing supplement to help with sleep. Whether you cannot fall asleep at night or you wake up in the middle of the night, this supplement will help you fall back into a restful sleep.”

BLACK SEED OIL

Leah says: “Black seed oil for psoriasis is the best treatment I have used in years. I took a double dose of the oil for two months and my skin improved hugely. Perfect in one absorbable supplement for us older ladies.”

ECHINACEA

Outi says: “Irish Botanica Echinacea oral liquid with full spectrum extract of E. purpurea root is just amazing and I use it for the whole family to help with cold symptoms.”

LILLY’S ECO CLEAN

Shane says: “I use all the Lilly’s Eco products around my home and find they work equally well if not better than any other cleaning agents. It‘s great to be able to avoid using those toxins at home.”

REVIVE ACTIVE

Jacinta says: “I stopped taking my Revive Active Joint Complex and the pain came back in my thumbs, so I went straight back onto it. I can’t believe the difference it makes.”

CHICKWEED BALM

Customer Mary says: “My skin was in bad condition after medical treatment, so I tried using Viridian Chickweed Organic Balm. It took less than a week for my skin to be back to normal and I am now always getting compliments on my radiant skin.”

CHERRY CONCENTRATE

Customer Philip says: “I am a big fan of Active Edge Cherry Active and this drink is great for many things, but mostly it is a powerful antioxidant and aids sleep. Time, persistence and patience is very important when using this product.”
