The deli operates from 8:30 – 3 each day. Our fresh organic soups in particular are a perfect option to take home for a healthy dinner. We offer them in decorative mason jars to go home with you. Our manager Lisa has also introduced energy bites to our deli counter. They are filled with nutritious goodies like dates and spirulina and make a great add on to a sandwich wrap.

Who isn’t affected by “brain fog” during our busy lives? Food sensitivities, fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, and toxic abuse all act as ballast to our normal brain function. The Brain Smarts station offers a selection of “Nootropics” to help alleviate this syndrome. Simply put, nootropics are supplements which enhance brain cognition by addressing all the deficiencies which have built up over time.
Fountain of Youth
The quest for anti-aging strategies is the holy grail. We prefer to think of anti-aging as a search for solutions which enhance your quality of life rather than simply extending it. We offer supplements like reservatrol and NAD which have been shown to do both. We have highlighted some great collagen products from Ancient Nutrition which help your skin and tendons to feel young again.
The Inflammation Station
Pain & Inflammation are common concerns for both young and old. The underlying causes of inflammation vary from allergies, toxins, stress, and overuse of muscles and tendons. Treating the symptoms is important because chronic inflammation can prove more damaging than the underlying cause . Our Inflammation Station features products such as curcumin which has been proven to help break the cycle and allow the body to reset. Our CBD products offer an even greater impact on relieving the inflammation by targeting our endocannanabinoid system. Its like pressing the master reset on your body.
We have fashioned our Botanical greeting center around herbs and plants which offer therapeutic benefits. We believe good health starts with eating right. Pure and organic botanical products are a good second line of defense. Hemp and CBD products from our partners at Straight Hemp should be a part of everyone’s health program. Our due diligence in this area has uncovered the astounding anti-inflammatory health benefits that are possible from this plant. We offer a tincture which is created from a cold pressed extraction process in Colorado. The growing and extraction process is done in a manner which ensures purity of the product. The team of experts at Straight Hemp have been in this business for 20 years. Their product is full spectrum collection of all the cannibinoids in the cannabis plant (with the exception of THC). you wont get high .. but you will see results in your blood pressure and anxiety.
Our stomachs have formed symbiotically with good forms of bacteria to be able to digest food, regulate our hormones, create serotonin, and make us regular. Science has learned that the bacterial balance of our stomachs is in serious jeopardy these days as our diet of processed foods and sugars has caused new colonies of bad bacteria to take over. We really have no choice but to supplement the good bacteria in our gut to combat the bad and encourage proper hormonal balance in our bodies. In addition to a variety of probiotics and fiber products, we carry specific stomach enzymes which are suitable to a variety of modern diets.

Our health is predetermined to some extent by our genetics. Many of us have an ancient genome that is challenged by modern processed food sources. Autoimmune disorders are often the result of assaulting our bodies with modern sources of carbohydrates and sugars. The solution to this dilemma is to switch to a ketogenic diet. Remarkable things can happen to our bodies when they are relieved of the trauma of fighting foods we are not equipped to digest. Science has also learned that ancient genotypes actually need more fat — not less. We just need good saturated fats like Bullet Proof Brain Octane and grass fed butter.
Self Hacking/Bio Hacking
Biohacking is a crazy-sounding name for something quite intuitive; the desire to be the absolute best version of ourselves.
What we put in our body has an enormous impact on how we feel. What we eat and drink alters our state of being.
What goes into us affects what comes out of us (not just poop). Our behaviors, our health, and our performance in all areas of life are the outputs of what we ingest.
If we desire better outputs (MEMORY .. DISEASE FREE .. ENERGETIC) then we need to tweak the things we ingest to stack the deck in our favor.
Our bio-hacking station offers home kits to help determine your current state of health in areas such as blood sugar, cholesterol, hormones, toxins etc..
After interpretation by medical professionals we can offer solutions to make a better you.
The “Organic” label is helpful in helping customers seeking to promote good health through what they eat. It is important to remember what we are seeking to achieve; good quality produce made with no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers, and no toxins. At For Goodness Sake we strive to achieve that objective by also knowing the farmers who are supplying us. We review the government reports on the produce to ensure quality. We just started stocking seasonal produce and fresh honey from East Fork Creek Gardens in Fort Myers. It is a natural aquaponics farm with a balanced ecosystem.
The advantage of a boutique health food store is we can react quickly to changing tides in the field of supplements and nutrition. We are paying particular attention to new products in the area of nootropics (supplements that enhance neurotransmitter function). More companies are popping up which specialize in making one pill really well. We spend time examining them and trying them ourselves before we bring them on board. To highlight our new products we will highlight them in the manager picks display.
