MARCH News
Go local and save 10% on Michigan products! 

During our annual March Michigan Madness event, look for the "Support Michigan" shelf tags and find coupons near all the Michigan products.  Present upon checkout to get 10% off retail.
As many of you locavores know, sourcing products closer to you is a more sustainable choice, saves on energy and reduces your carbon footprint.  When it comes to fresh food, there are even more reasons to eat local and seasonally.  We will be featuring more fresh offerings from our local farmers as springtime draws near.  Plus, it's good to know that your purchases are supporting neighbors and small businesses close to home, where that money is reinvested into the community. 

You can find Michigan meat and dairy, beans and canned fruits, maple syrup and honey, flours and pasta to name a few.  Many gifts and bodycare items are locally made, like a variety of soaps and skincare products, jewelry and wooden toys.  Find a complete list of Michigan-based vendors and the type of products here.

Herb of the Month: Uva Ursi
for National Kidney Month
Literally translated, Uva Ursi means  bear's grape, bears love this hearty little perennial's berry.  It grows in colder northern climates, including Michigan!  It thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soil and makes an excellent groundcover.  

Historically the leaves (not berries) of the Uva Ursi plant have been taken for urinary tract infections and edema.  That’s why we are highlighting it for March, National Kidney Month
It's active properties include: antiseptic, astringent and diuretic.  Uva ursi's ability to fight infection are due to arbutin and hydroquinone. The herb also contains tannins that have astringent effects, helping to shrink and tighten mucous membranes in the body. In turn, that helps reduce inflammation and fight infection.
 To get the best effect, it's important to have a diet rich in alkaline-forming fruits and veggies and drink alkaline water while taking Uva Ursi.  Researchers believe the herb works best when a person's urine is alkaline  to maintain its antibacterial effect.
We carry Uva Ursi capsules by Nature's Sunshine and in combination with other kidney-friendly herbs in Urinary Maintenance and Kidney Activator formulas.  
Cautions:  Uva ursi works best at the first sign of infection.  Not recommended for long term use as hydroquinone in large doses can cause liver damage.
