A better tomorrow is today’s Vital Health.

Our passion for wellness, and our commitment to making a difference is what defines us from the ever competitive market. We are ‘qualitarians’! We respect whichever modality or avenue our clients chose to embrace to meet their nutritional needs, what matters is the quality of the food and supplements they put into their body. Through our knowledge, standards, and hearts, we make it easier for our customers to meet their needs. It has always been our mission to give our best service to each individual without compromise.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison


Nestled in the beautiful Creston Valley, Vital Health Food Store has been serving the area for over thirty years. Over those years it has gone through several dedicated owners who all devoted their energies to bringing health and wellness to this valley.

A personal journey to health lead Jeanna and Garry Reed to purchase Vital Health in 2009. Like the owners who came before, they have dedicated their lives to offering the highest quality natural food products with a focus on ethical, local sources and Canadian based companies. They have committed to quality customer service by staying up-to-date and informed on all of their foods and products. The atmosphere and energy in our store is personal, attentive and welcoming. It has also been overheard and expressed on a regular basis that folks come in here just for the smell!

We invite you stop by, introduce yourself, ask questions and browse around. And please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or inquires.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm. Walking is man’s best medicine.”                                     ~ Hippocrate



I have lived in Vancouver, Yaletown, and Calgary for many years. This health food store in Creston, Vital Health, has the widest variety of products I have seen in comparison to any health food store in big cities. Amazing selection and quality products.

I have been a health food connoisseur for about 18 years. Everywhere I go I must visit a health food store. To me they are like chocolate to a chocolate lover. Vital Health is number 1. I have found that when you shop at Vital Health you can just enjoy and be assured that the owners have done their research on the ingredients. They do not bring junk products into the store, as I have found in many other health food establishments. The ambiance in this store is safe (calming) and one of the reasons is the people working there. Thank you Vital Health.

The only store in the Kootenays where I don’t have to read labels!

The staff at Vital Health saved my life. Last summer I stopped at Vital Health as I was driving aimlessly down through BC and into the states. No idea where I was really going but I knew when I got there I was going to end my life. I needed a break and Vital Health just happened to be the place I stopped. The young man working there was counseling another person on depression and as I was browsing the shelves I listened in on the conversation, and asked the lady working there an occasional question.   Somehow during that hour and a half period I decided to do and take some of the things being suggested. Here I am, 8 months later, going home and passing back through Creston and stopping in at Vital Health , alive, ready to ask for help, and getting well.

This is one of the best health food stores I have ever been in. Selection is better than most stores in Vancouver. I will be back on my next trip through.

Love the Indie music playing. I was grooving the whole time I shopped – I could feel the welcoming atmosphere the second I walked in the door. Thanks guys!

~Rosie, Creston 

The best stocked health food store this side of Vancouver. Love it!

~ Barry, Toronto

 Vital Health is one of the best health food stores I have ever had the pleasure of being in. The staff are delightful, personable, and knowledgeable. I feel that they genuinely want to help, over just making a sale.

~Valerie, Oregon 

Very impressed by the professional skincare products that Vital Health carries. I’ve lived with skin problems most of my life, and thanks to Bronwyn and Reece for not only providing a product, but for providing an educated service. Vital Health is my first stop every time I visit. Thank you.

~Leanne, Vancouver 

Love the upbeat energy of this store! Awesome staff!

~ Oscar, San Fran

I travel up and down the North American coast on a regular basis for my job. As a health junkie I make it a point to stop at one wherever I can. Vital Health is the best I have seen and experienced.

~Lana, Los Angeles

I shop at Vital Health on a regular basis. The moment I get inside the door I have to pause for a moment, just to embrace the energy.   Gets me every time.   Thank you Vital Health.

~Brenda, Creston

I am in my 90’s and have taken care of myself all my life and have shopped at Vital Health for many years. It is my go to store in Creston as they make an effort and will eventually get most anything I ask for.

~Robert Betts, Creston

My two girlfriends and I try to travel to Creston at least one Saturday a month, roads permitting, just to come browse and shop at Vital Health. Wonderful store.
