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

When entering the detoxification stage of this protocol, it is essential to ensure your diet is clean by removing any foods that fuel inflammation, make digestion difficult or create toxins. Carbohydrates, especially when refined (white), readily turn into sugars in the body which are inflammatory and can play havoc with blood sugar levels. Wheat, dairy and alcohol can also cause digestive issues and bowel sluggishness.

Most people think of detoxing as fasting; however, 
you can detox by flooding the body with organic plant-based nutrition, in the form of juices and smoothies, soups, steamed veg and nuts and seeds. Using plant-based foods full of chlorophyll, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will provide nutrients and therefore energy to the cells in your body so they are more able to throw out the toxins while at the same time replenishing themselves.

Dried fruit and figs to gently cleanse the colon; apples for their antioxidant effect and energy production (Malic acid); asparagus for its glutathione content (master antioxidant in the body); carrots are also high in antioxidants and can support elimination from lungs, colon, kidneys, liver, bladder and skin; ginger is another antioxidant that fights free radical damage in the body but also has antiviral, bacterial and parasitic properties; warm water with lemon can help to flush toxins out.

As well as flooding your body with nutrients from plants, it is also important to encourage elimination so that any toxins flushed out of the cells are removed from the body. Gently promoting a sweat through going to a sauna for example is a great way to do this.

Chlorella, cilantro and barley grass juice are all helpful in binding to toxins to remove them from the body.

Maitake Mushrooms have also been shown to be especially beneficial at ridding the body of mercury toxicity, supporting liver health and they contain antioxidants.

Bentonite and Zeolite clay are known as highly purifying mineral clays. Bentonite can be used in the bath or in foot baths to remove heavy metals from the skin and can also be taken internally to absorb toxins in the body and help cleanse the digestive tract.

Zeolite can be taken internally to bind to and help remove heavy metals from the body.

As well as eating well and supporting your body with clean nutrient dense foods, it’s also important to rest and engage in activities that promote relaxation such as: mindfulness, gentle exercise, yoga, Qigong and breathing exercises. Dry skin brushing is also useful for removing toxins.

Milk Thistle, Cysteine, Dandelion and Artichoke can all support the liver, the main organ of detoxification in the body, which will be working overtime while your body reduces its toxic load.

Alpha-lipoic acid is an integral part of any detoxification process, an antioxidant with proven ability to support the liver and help the body reduce toxicity.

Maitake Mushrooms for binding to heavy metals and for their antioxidant activity.

Shilajit contains many essential minerals, iron and amino acids, Humic and Fulvic acid which helps it to penetrate deeply into body tissues and aid in metal detoxification.

Glutathione known as the master antioxidant in the body. Supplementation is best in a liposomal form (nano-sized bubbles that mimic the body’s own cell membranes) as absorption is difficult. Alternatively supplement with N-acteyl cysteine which is one of the amino acids that make up glutathione.

Chorella can support with heavy metal detox and gut motility, it is also a rich source of nutrients.

CoQ10 is an antioxidant that supports with energy production in the mitochondria.

Vitamin B12 has been shown to support with energy production.

Magnesium has been shown to support many critical detox enzymes in the liver and is involved in energy production.

Folate is involved in energy production and liver detoxification.

B vitamins especially riboflavin (B2) and Niacin (B3) support the liver and phase 1 liver detoxification. B2 is involved in the production of glutathione and all B vitamins are involved in energy production.

Epsom salt baths have been shown to have a similar effect to supplemental magnesium (see above), but Epsom Salts also contain Sulphur which supports liver detoxification as well. So, it’s good to have lots of Epsom salt baths whilst detoxing.

Important: if you have a health condition or are taking medication it’s important to consult with your GP before embarking on a cleanse or detox.
