These guys are the hub of Glastonbury for supporting local organic and sprayfree growers of fresh vegetables, fruits and other fringe items. They stock a big range of Riverford Organic produce delivered fresh from Devon. They've got the pantry sorted with everything you need from breakfast cereals, coffee, vegan milks, cows milk, chocolate to crisps, cheeses to Sauerkraut. We bought the vegetarian sausage rolls which were great. They have another savoury selection in the display fridge but don't warm them up for you - I tried eating the Potato cakes and they weren't good cold. I took them home and heated them up and were way better. They gave a deal going where you can buy 3 for 5 pounds which was pretty good value. The takeaway coffee was good - we ended up walking down the road to the church grounds and sat in there to munch on our goodies before hitting some of the crystal shops and clothing boutiques. It makes for a good day out when you can good coffee, organic food and chilled out vibes meandering around the streets of Glastonbury!

This place was great to buy nice local produce like the Pennard Organic Mead I enjoyed for Lammas. A great choice of natural soaps, lots of yummy foody treats, this is well worth a visit and a good browe.

Amazing selection of wholefoods and other 'health' foods and supplements. One of the best wholefood shops in the south west

I love this shop and would have given 10 stars if I could! Very friendly, knowledgable and helpful staff, top quality food. I am sad that your Portishead store has closed as that was much nearer for me. I will now resume my fortnightly trip from Clevedon to your lovely shop. Thank you to all of you. Best wishes Myra.

This must be one of the biggest and if not one of the best organic food stores in the UK. A real beacon for Glastonbury.

Love it in here, staff are super friendly and there's a great selection of stuff at reasonable prices. Live in London but always make sure I come here when I am in Glastonbury to stock up on soaps, vegan chocolate and other lovely bits. The sausage rolls are fab too.

Amazing variety of products, alternatives and essentials. Was really cool just to browse actual vegan products rather than buying all online (we don't have anything similar to this where we live!) On top of that the samosa from the bakery at the back was to die for!

Love this shop, I come here for a lot of my organic supplies. Great range of foods. I particularly like how they have a lot of ready to eat food aswell can highly recommend the Fritata. I also really like their range of toiletries, it's the only place I will buy my shampoo bars from, Great value compared to other brands. Very helpful and friendly staff too. It's good to see they are trying to follow covid guidelines, but there did seem to still be a lot of people especially families not wearing masks or distancing

Ageing is a natural part of our life cycle which we cannot change, but we can influence the way we age to promote a good quality of life in our later years.  

Dan Buettner in his film Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones, researched the places where people live to be the oldest and healthiest on the planet. He identified key lifestyle and dietary factors that were common to all. Some of the practices that can be adopted to enhance our own wellbeing include:

1 Bionutri Carotone
Carotenoids are the pigments found in brightly coloured plants and algae. They act as a type of antioxidant and are key supporters of skin, eye and connective tissue health

2 Bionutri Fish Oil
Omega 3 from either oily fish or plant-based sources (nuts, seeds and algae) can support the body by reducing inflammation, improving cellular communication, brain health and mental health

3Bionutri Lignan Plus
Plant based oestrogens can help to balance our hormones, which is essential for bone and heart health. Some food sources include whole flax seeds, tempeh, soy, cruciferous vegetables, red clover and sprouted alfalfa

4Bionutri Rosehip Q10
Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant the body produces naturally, but production decreases as we age. At around 80 years of age, we generally produce 50% of the amount a 20-year-old can. CoQ10 is linked with good heart health and circulation as well as the release of energy from food

5 – Bionutri Phyto-Epicell
A combination of plant-based nutrients designed to support the cells that line the internal surfaces of the body, keeping you healthy from the inside out

For most people, 10-30 minutes in the sun daily is enough to maintain optimal levels of vitamin D in the summer months, but everyone in the northern hemisphere needs to supplement with vitamin D in the winter months to maintain immune, cardiovascular, bone and mental health.

Older people, those with a darker skin, or those who wear clothing that limits access to sunlight, are less able to synthesise vitamin D from sunlight. So this is when supplementation throughout the summer months is required.
