Have you seen the brand new shop open on the parade?! We are very very excited to introudce you to the new kids on the block, the lovely Xover Nutrition. If you haven’t had chance go and say hello and welcome them to Kings Heath. Earlier this week we were lucky enough to have a quick catch up with the team, read below to find out all about the newest edition to Kings Heath.

Hello and welcome to Kings Heath, what can you tell us about Xover Nutrition?

Natural food & Organic Beauty Store and have recently opened our doors on the Parade on Kings Heath High Street. We stock Vegan, Vegetarian,

Fair trade, Gluten Free, Organic Natural Beauty & skin care products.

What makes you stand out from other health and wellbeing stores?

Our aim is to create a store that combines all your Natural Health food Needs along with your beauty & pampering requirements. Nearly all our products are

Vegan friendly and we put a huge emphasis on products that are natural & organic. For example, all our Bath Bombs, Soaps & Sugar Scrubs are all handmade using only the finest natural ingredients and essential oils and are approved by both the Vegan & Vegetarian Society’s and are most importantly Cruelty Free!

What inspired you to set up Xover Nutrition? 

I have for a long time been interested in Natural Health & Nutrition and what we ingest whether that be through consumption or what we put on our skin daily. So for us combining the different products and ranges is what we would look for when shopping.

Why did you choose Kings Heath?

Kings Heath is such an amazing vibrant place for small independent businesses. We looked at so many different quirky small businesses in the Kings Heath area we felt it would be the perfect choice for Xover Nutrition. For us Kings Heath really stood out on the map in Birmingham with such a wonderful mix of small business set ups it was a must and we have really settled in and the surrounding businesses have been amazing.

We’ve heard you’ll be selling a range of Superfood products, can you tell us abit more about what Superfoods are?

Now your talking! Superfoods are amazing they are natural foods that have not been enhanced in any way and have real health promoting properties such as phytochemicals, nutrients, and antioxidants! 

What about Kings Heath makes it such a good place to set up a business? 

Kings Heath has real history and character with such a vibrant community and wonderful mix. Again the number of independent businesses in such a small area is a credit to Birmingham. 

Where are your favorite places to shop/drink/eat in Kings Heath?

There are so many to choose from we love Loco lounge for a bite to eat on any given day and the hare & hounds has so many amazing events on during the evening Or maybe just a chill out in the black Lab lounge on the high street also there’s so many to choose from.

What’s your favorite thing about owning your own business?

Deciding on the direction of my business and what products we want in the store as well as finding new products that people have never seen before.

What three pieces of advice would you give to someone looking to set up their own business?

  1. Talk over your ideas with the people around you and don’t be afraid to share your ideas with them. 

  2. Create a plan of action! An idea will stay as “just an idea” without action.

  3. Be brave and take a step into the unknown. And if you fail learn the lessons and identify what went wrong and try again.

What advice would you give to someone who’s looking to live a more healthy life?

Any form of change in terms of diet or exercise is always a transition. Most people who jump into a change two feet first often don’t last very long. Implement small changes each week and stick to them! 

What would you say are the three biggest benefits of living a healthy lifestyle?

  • Overall physical health will greatly improve and help you live your best life.

  • Often talked about in today’s Society but often overlooked is your mental state and well being. Leading a healthy lifestyle is paramount to your mental well being as they say healthy body, in turn, leads to a healthy mind.

  • Influence on others is massive! Once you start looking great and feeling great your positive energy will soon be picked up on by other people around you whether it’s your partner, friends or family members and will help them work towards a more healthy lifestyle.

Where does your experience in health and wellbeing come from?

I’ve always read about and studied health and nutrition so for me it’s been a life of learning and I’m still learning new things each day.

Where do you see Xover Nutrition in five years time?

Our aim is to bring Natural Health & Organic products to everyone and reach as many people as possible far and wide.
