First Review by felipel

because there is nothing else - Edit

Well... Don't expect a healty shop: Yes they have vitamin, and some oils, and a lot of infusions/spices/herbal things, but that's not awesome.
I go there, because there is nothing more in Managua, but when I go out of Nicaragua, i run to others places to buy what I need.

I appreciate their own brand - Naturaleza - which is good, and not expensive: that cool and from Nicaragua.
But I have big doubts about the real "medicine" effect about all that vitamin, and pills with a very comercial packaging and promeses.

Pros: at least there is one shop like this in Nicaragua, Their own brand

Cons: small, There is everything, but there is nothing

Good for what it has - Edit

My biggest disappointment is that Naturaleza seems about 1/10th the size of what I would think Managua could support. It reminds me of a typical health food store of 1980 in Oympia Washington.
It has a large assortment of "medicine" and body care products but the food selection is pretty small. You can find brown rice, sugar-free peanut butter, soy flour and such. You also find a lot of Gringas shopping there -- the kind you would have found in that store in Olympia.

Pros: health care products, knowledgable staff, central location

Cons: needs more food options
