1. Rigorous Product Pre-Selection of all food, body care and supplement products.
Shopping at a typical supermarket is almost useless for anyone focused on healthful eating. Even the well-known health food stores stock far too many items that should be avoided.
Adding to the confusion, just because a product’s packaging contains phrases like “natural”, “gluten free” or “organic” doesn’t mean it should be part of a healthy diet as they often contain large amounts of sugar, refined grains, additives, poor quality proteins and fats, and worse.
At Essential Health we have done the work for you to cut through the marketing fog. We have carefully examined each product we sell to ensure it meets our strict guidelines, providing you with the pre-selected staples and snacks upon which you can build a healthful diet.
Our standards include:
- With rare exception, no added sugar. (Exceptions include residual sugars in Kombucha, etc.)
- No crop oils like canola, soybean, corn, etc.
- With rare exception, no added grains that are not sprouted.
Through our free monthly workshops, knowledgeable staff and personalized nutrition partner, you will become highly knowledgeable on cutting-edge nutrition research to take control of your health like never before.
3. Value and Pricing
We put much effort into sourcing the best values we can find to provide maximum “nutrition bang per buck.” We also buy many items in bulk and repackage to pass along lower prices.
Furthermore, we have our very popular pre-order bulk discount program , which functions much like a co-op. (Order by Monday, and you can pick before the weekend!)
We also accept EBP cards / SNAP program.
