A health store is a very general term which encompasses a large array of businesses which can be placed under the definition of being focused on 'health'. There are many health stores out there which sell very different products and services.
For many, a health store may represent a store which sells a range of products which are marketed towards better health, such as vitamins and supplements. Some of these stores also sell legumes, grains and pulses. Some may even stock a range of protein powders. It is important to remember that not all these products that are marketed to improve our health are supported by evidence.
Many health stores do not sell food but tend to focus on vitamins and minerals, however there are some larger health stores that do sell fresh food, such as organic varieties of vegetables.
Health stores are sometimes quite small and hard to find. There is usually one found in a shopping centre. Some health stores are entirely online only, so it can help to go online and have a look. Guides such as Local Business Guide will help you find a physical health store in your local area.
If you are trying to improve your health, you may find that a local health store has products and information to help you find nutrients and supplements to support your health. A health store also tends to employ staff who are very knowledgeable in health products and can guide you into what supplements may work for you.
