Natural Grocers is the nation’s largest family-operated organic and natural grocery retailer. The retailer also provides extensive free science-based nutrition education programs that help consumers make informed nutritional health choices.
The initial two Healthy Extracts products sold by Natural Grocers include Ultimate Brain Nutrients™ (UBN™) ACTIVATE™, which naturally increases brain activation by 46%, and the company’s proprietary, clinically-proven formulation to reduce or alleviate neurological discomfort, UBN RELIEF™.
“Our relationship with Natural Grocers broadens our sales channels with a major grocer and opens a key new revenue stream as our first strategic launch into the retail marketplace,” stated Healthy Extracts president, Duke Pitts. “Natural Grocers’ acclaimed high standards for natural and organic products represents a tremendous validation of our plant-based formulations for brain health and builds additional trust to consumers.”
The World Journal of Advanced Research and Reviews recently published the results of a clinical study which showed that taking a daily serving of UBN RELIEF for 60 days can naturally reduce or alleviate neurological discomfort. It also improves cognitive function, sleep satisfaction and overall quality of life. A pilot study published in Annals of Reviews and Research highlighted the ability of UBN™ ACTIVATE™ to naturally increase key brain activity by as much as 46%.
“We welcome Healthy Extracts’ Ultimate Brain Nutrients formulations to Natural Grocers’ Dietary Supplements Department,” said Laura Perkins, VP of Purchasing for Natural Grocers. “We are very selective with the supplements we offer, ensuring that each one is GMP or Good Manufacturing Practices certified and verified for authenticity of ingredients. Though our review process takes time, it ensures unrivaled quality standards for our customers. From raw materials to purity testing methods, Ultimate Brain Nutrients RELIEF and ACTIVATE embody the same Commitment to Quality that Natural Grocers’ customers trust and depend on.”
Healthy Extracts will provide educational support to Natural Grocers floor staff members so that they can become knowledgeable about ACTIVATE and RELIEF and their clinically proven benefits.
“Natural Grocers’ nationwide presence will also elevate our brand awareness among health-conscious customers seeking natural, high-quality products backed by clinical studies,” added Pitts. “We also see the potential for eventually offering through Natural Grocers our heart health support formulations based on our exclusive Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™.”
