The Manchester Parkade Health Shoppe, the largest independent, family-owned health food store in the Greater Hartford area, is a true oasis for learning and achieving optimal health.
In 1956, we started as a Liggett-Rexall Pharmacy. In 1970, we transitioned to a full-service health food store. We were founded by Michael Dworkin, PD, CCN, a Connecticut Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Registered Pharmacist (1928-2017). We are well-known for providing cutting-edge information, caring service, and an abundant variety of affordable natural products.
Our knowledgeable staff includes our owner, Erika Dworkin, who is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition, and Kyle Ledonne, a Culinary Nutritionist.
Our 8000+ items include vitamins, herbs, homeopathy, sports supplements, natural body care, gluten- and other allergen-free foods, books, and green cleaners. We discount many of our high quality leading national brands every day, and offer a well-loved Loyalty Card with Rewards Points.
We would love to help you achieve your health goals! Contact us with your health and product questions.

BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM:
MAINTAIN THE PROPER pH BALANCE IN YOUR GUT
Diet can significantly impact immune function, especially because 70-80% of immune system cells reside in the small intestine.
To foster gut health, the body should be kept in the proper acid/alkaline balance. The correct ratio by volume is 25% acidifying to 75% alkalizing foods. It is generally important to eat a diet that contains both alkalizing and acidifying foods. Allergic reactions and other forms of stress tend to produce acids in the body. The presence of high acidity indicates that more of your foods should be selected from the alkalizing group.
SOME ALKALIZING FOODS
Most Vegetables, Green Foods
& Vegetable Juices
Eggs Whey Protein Tofu
Almonds Lean Chicken Millet
Teas: Herbal, Green, Bancha, Ginseng
Apple Cider Vinegar
