A Q&A With Holland & Barrett

Posted on 16th April 2024

The knowledge the Holland and Barrett CastleCourt staff have is simply incredible.
Did you know that the amazing team at are qualified to advise? They all hold government accredited qualifications, equivalent to an A-Level!
So, whatever you need help with they’ll be there.
We popped in store to chat to the lovely Rachael about what products would be most popular for specific problems.

The Viral Sensation – SEAMOSS!

“Our customers love sea moss for its high mineral content, it’s especially high in iodine which may help stimulate the thyroid gland. Our thyroid helps our body regulate metabolism, so sea moss is often used for weight management. It’s also a wonderful supplement to help maintain healthy skin, hair and nails!”

Currently available in tablet form and gummies.

Struggling with concentration and focus

“We have a great range of products in store to help with focus and concentration, whether you’re struggling with brain fog or need help with your studies, we’ll have a product to help.

Lion’s Mane is something our customers use for mental alertness, focus, concentration, memory etc. It comes in many different forms so everyone can find their favourite- capsules, powder, tea, coffee (caffeinated and decaffeinated!)

Often paired with Omega 3 which is also used for brain and nerve function, heart health and formation of neurotransmitters and hormones in the body.”

“Did you know B Vitamins play a massive part in brain and nerve function too? We also have a wide variety of foods and drinks that contain vitamins, minerals and adaptogens to increase blood flow and get that brain back in action!”

Regulating Blood Sugars

“We would recommend Berberine for this. Our customers would use this to regulate blood sugar levels and help maintain healthy digestion! Used in conjunction with a healthy diet could reduce the risk of diabetes- make sure to check out our new food range while you’re in, we have some delicious healthier alternatives waiting for you!”

(We can confirm, the food range is fantastic!)

The Magical Menopause

Don’t worry, we know its definitely NOT magical!

“We have an amazing range of products in store to help you on your journey.

Some of our most popular products for menopause and hormonal balance are pictured here- our menopause gummies in particular have an amazing mix of vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts that our customers use to tackle many symptoms of menopause including hot flushes, low mood, anxiety, lack of energy and lowered metabolism! (Sign me up!!)

Have you spotted our menopause chocolate in there? (Yes, really!) Rich, dark chocolate is paired with crunchy almonds to create a tasty combo. Enriched with Affron® and vitamin B6 to create a treat that will satisfy your taste buds and support your mood. We have lots more where that came from, so call in any time to discover our new food range with benefits!”

A massive thank you to Rachael and the team for taking the time to answer these questions!

We hope you find these answers beneficial if you are struggling with any of the above topics.
