The supplement department at Driver’s Market is stocked with a selection of carefully chosen vitamins and minerals, and is organized in categories: immunity; hydration; amino acids; antioxidants; sleep/stress; multi-vitamins; digestives; pain relief; homeopathy; probiotics, and more.
Driver’s supplement buyer, Danya Mosgofian, evaluates products and companies before bringing them in, and does the homework for our customers. “I prefer food-based products because they absorb better. Non-GMO, preferably organic, and no giant corporate manufacturers,” said Danya.
Top sellers at Driver’s include immunity boosters, cold and flu treatments, and digestive aids. Danya also gets a lot of requests for heartburn relief. Her first step is to ask questions and help the customer determine the cause. For example, does the heartburn kick in before or after a meal? Danya sometimes recommends a form of licorice called DGL, which is an anti-inflammatory herb that helps ease inflammation in the stomach and esophagus. She might also suggest slippery elm, which can soothe digestive tracts irritated by acid reflux.
