Wellness is right down the aisle!
From its own quality branded natural products, to popular national brands, Metropolitan Market has greatly expanded its selection of health and body-care products, including natural and organic options for head-to-toe health and beauty. Discover natural and specialty items for total wellness that stand out from conventional, mass-market products, with an emphasis on the best from local manufacturers. A dedicated team will guide you through the vast selection of nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, herbs and more.

Five Seattle and Tacoma locations; Kirkland is coming in June!


Healthy and Happy
Eat right and your body will thank you. When things seem imbalanced, try to get more fiber, which a majority of Americans lack enough of in their daily diets. Vivagave, a soluble inulin from the organic blue agave, is a fiber that seamlessly dissolves in food and beverages. Its molecular structure feeds the probiotic activity in your gut which leads to good digestion and promotes calcium and magnesium absorption. Another benefit: it keeps you fuller longer because just one tablespoon yields 40 percent of one’s daily fiber. Unlike agave nectar, Vivagave is low glycemic (just 4!) and simply adds “mouth feel” to whatever it’s added. See what you’ve been missing?!

Find Vivagave at Metropolitan Market, Central Market and nationally in Whole Foods as a March featured product. www.vivagave.com. Follow Vivagave on Twitter: @VivAgave

Golf naturally and experience Audubon aspirations
Oki Golf is following a landmark program for ecologically conscious golf courses; The Golf Club at Newcastle is Oki’s first property to pursue certification from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP-Golf), which will make it only the 12th course in Washington to obtain such credentials.
