At Dr. Nutrition, there's no cure-all nutritional supplement?instead, there are more than 100 to choose from, each with a distinct function. Gingko biloba, for example, helps boost memory and brain function, whereas antler velvet alleviates symptoms of menopause, and calcium fortifies bones more effectively than walking with self-imposed preventative crutches. The Canada-based company also crafts a line of all-natural liquid herbal concentrates.

Teaopia dispenses more than 100 varieties of loose-leaf teas, spanning a catalogue of black, green, white, oolong, yerba mate, rooibos, and blended teas, plus hard-to-find harvests. Selections range from the flavourful Amazing Vanilla ($5.50/50g) to the Caramelissimo ($6.50/50g), a blend of ceylon black tea, caramel pieces, hard biscuit pieces, and cream caramel flavour, to the Pomegranate Green ($7.00/50g), a green tea distinguished by its sencha, cranberries, pomegranate flowers, and off-beat sense of humor. While deliberating brew munitions, customers can sip one of Teaopia's concoctions, such as a tangerine dream iced tea ($2.75), classic Chai latte ($4.50), or raspberry matcha fruit smoothie ($5.50). Home brewing gets simple with Teaopia's helpful and attractive accessories, including the 16-ounce tea master ($20), a BPA-free infuser for loose-leaf teas that keeps pours warm and nests a stainless steel filter that strains out bad karma.
