Nature’s Forest Go Vita has been at the heart of the Q Super Centre for nearly 20 years, and the shop has grown alongside our loyal customers – and our staff, including lovely Mandy, who has been here since the start! In our small, dedicated team, we have three qualified practitioners, along with two team members who each have 20+ years experience in the industry. Customers know they can trust us for helpful and friendly advice.
The community here is a vibrant blend of young families who appreciate our diverse range of sports supplements, skincare products, and attention to current lifestyle trends; and an older demographic, dedicated to those “Old Faithful” health food shop products like Apple Cider Vinegar, castille soap and fresh natural peanut butter, which we make on-site.
Our great range of bulk foods have high turnover so they are always fresh and tasty, and for all the eco-warrior customers, we are more than happy to fill your containers or jars for a plastic-free option.

What product can you not live without? I LOVE the Hab Shifa Black Seed range. As well as a strong history of traditional use, Nigella Sativa has so many amazing health benefits proven in clinical research, and it tastes great too! I use the seeds on veggies and gluten-free baking, and the oil makes my skin and hair so nourished and soft.
What is your secret to a vital life? Connecting with nourishment every day, through fresh air and connection with nature, physical activity, wholefoods, and positive relationships.
I consider my role as a Nutritionist as equal parts evidence-based medicine and reconnecting people with their own innate body wisdom. I am so grateful to have found a career where I wake up in the morning and think "Yay, I get to go to work today!" - and on the Gold Coast, I am lucky enough to be able to take a sunrise beach walk before I do ! Helping people uncover the root causes of their health challenges, rather than using band-aid 'solutions', is a very rewarding part of this profession. I also love utilising medicinal foods - some of the most commonplace pantry foods have amazingly potent effects!

What is your secret to a vital life? Great diet, exercise and lots of laughter
I love helping people achieve their happiness, whether it's a friendly chat with the locals or helping with their health care needs. I love developing relationships with my customers and over the years becoming their friend and support. I see great results in health. Seeing their families and friends grow and developing great relationships with them also.
