One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep things natural. Whether it’s eating natural foods without preservatives or taking nutritional, natural supplements and herbal vitamins, carefully selecting what you put in your body will help keep your immune system strong and keep you healthy all year long. Filling your life and your body with natural health products can be a challenge if you’re just getting started. Here are the top five natural health products you can buy (and should consider purchasing) at a natural health store. There are several different kinds of natural health stores; some focus on vitamins, herbal medicine and other natural supplements and others offer organic foods and fruits and vegetables. We’ll take a broad look at products as we consider all varieties of health stores in our discussion. 1) Vitamins, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements Your body needs vitamin supplements in order to run at the highest level. Vitamins do everything from supporting with your eyesight to boosting your memory. They also support your immune system and keep it running at a high level so you can stay healthy and avoid illness. Vitamins and nutrients can come naturally through healthy fruits and vegetables and other foods, but they can also come in the form of a pill or some other health products. One of the best ways to ensure your body is getting the vitamins it needs is to take a multivitamin daily. Multivitamins can come in many forms. Some are simply a pill that you swallow while others are chewable and hard or chewable and soft.
Pills


While multivitamins contain a good mixture of the main vitamins, nutrients, and minerals your body needs to function at a high level, often just taking one specific vitamin can be very beneficial. For instance, if you want to support and boost your immune system, vitamin C is one of the most powerful vitamins you can take. You might consider getting a bottle of just vitamin C pills and taking one daily. The mineral zinc is another powerful one when it comes to strengthening and supporting your immune system.

2) Fresh fruits and vegetables There are few better ways to naturally get the vitamins and nutrients your body craves than to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Not every natural health store will have these, but many will. If you can, search for organic fruits and veggies as they don’t contain harmful chemicals and preservatives. Though research is still being done, some say that organic fruits and vegetables are more nutritious in some cases than their non-GMO partners.
Fruits and Vegetables


The fresher the fruits and vegetables are, the shorter their shelf life. You may also find that some fresh fruits and veggies are cheaper especially if they are grown by local farmers. Search out farmers markets as they’ll offer some nutritional, naturally-grown, and wholesome foods. Fresh fruit is usually really sweet and it allows you to satisfy your sweet tooth in a much healthier way than through a candy bar that is high in fat and calories. Vegetables can be prepared in a multitude of different ways for different flavors. Steam them, bake them, or combine them with olive oil or natural dressings for a fresh way to get the nutrients you need. 3) Topical creams and moisturizers Often, a natural health store will carry organic health creams with natural health products to support soft and healthy skin. Moisturizers with natural vitamins and minerals are common, but you may also find a topical cream that may serve as a natural shingles treatment or treat the symptoms of other painful skin conditions like eczema in a way similar to drugs and medicine. Keeping your skin healthy is critical since the skin is the is the greatest barrier against infection that you have. Many people will apply cream in the morning and the evening. Applying a moisturizer to your skin before you sleep is a good idea. You may consider a heavier moisturizer at night and a lighter one during the day. While you’re sleeping, there’s a lower possibility that your moisturizer will rub off, so a richer cream at night may be more effective than during the day when several activities might cause the cream to rub off. At night, your skin has an opportunity to soak up the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
