Jodie's offering a healthy choice
WHEN Jodie O’Keeffe moved to Rockhampton recently, she noticed many fast-food chain outlets here.
As a nutritionist, this wasn’t what she wanted to see in the city she was living in with her fiance and so she decided to open her own health and nutrition store.
Vibrant Health and Nutrition has been open in the Metro Complex at 235 Musgrave St for about a month. Opening her own business was a daunting task, but Jodie loved the rewards.
Jodie said many were turning to the internet to get health and fitness supplements.
“I think Rockhampton has a bit of a lack in general health knowledge, awareness and education.”
Hoping to fill the void, Jodie opened the store, selling health foods and weight supplements.
She said the store catered for those who used supplements before and after fitness training as well as those who were just looking to get healthy.
“We also have the gluten-free and organic range of foods,” Jodie said.
The store also stocks probiotics that help improve immunity, decrease allergic and inflammatory responses and maintain proper function of the intestines.
She said she was looking forward to using her education and knowledge to help local clients through sound advice.
