Veganuary – Don’t let the name fool you


Veganuary is a charity inspiring people to try vegan for January and throughout the rest of the year. So just because January is over doesn’t mean they are stopping in their work to highlight the benefits of the vegan diet and neither are we.

The growth in the number of vegans, and people opening their minds towards a vegan plant based diet in this country is amazing and much of this is down to charities like Veganuary.

We know the benefits, we endorse the benefits and love all our customers who support us but it is great when we get new customers come in to the shop telling us that they want to know more about Veganism. This increase is due to charities like Veganuary.

The funny thing, when we do get new customers asking, it’s often our customers in the shop that tell them their stories, give their advice and support. Making that decision is not always an easy one – especially with traditional UK diets and food on offer. Many customers just want to know more and often suggest that they are dipping their toe in the water to try. We welcome this because even small changes make a difference; not only to food production industries but also personal health. For these customers sometimes having 1 or 2 vegetarian meals per week can be a start.

It’s not only charities like Veganuary that drive this change. Many bars & restaurants, especially locally also offer a wider range of vegan and vegetarian options on their menu’s – a Vegan section on a menu was unheard of just a few years ago. There’s no getting round that “Vegan” was a buzzword of 2018. This was greeted with positive & negative reactions but we believe their can be no denying the health benefits, mentally & physically of a plant based diet. We support this change of behaviour in UK consumers & we congratulate the open mindedness and will to try.

More than ever, we are a nation of people who recognise the effects of what we put inside out bodies. We are asking more questions. We are thinking more. We are seeking and taking advice that we have previously let pass us by.

We hope to see this continue in 2019 and further in to the future and we wish all charities and campaigns the best of luck! And we greet all customers, new and old with a smile and honest advice so come ans see us

Tell us what you want to see

Xover Nutrition Logo

We’ve been open for a couple of months now and time has flown! It’s been an exciting time. Exciting for us that we opened after years of planning and hard work. Exciting to get all your feedback and best wishes and we hope exciting for you to have a vegan, organic and health store that stocks products you want to see.

1000 products in store

When we opened we had approximately 750 products in our range and we made a point in our first few days and weeks to ask customers what we were missing and what you wanted to see.

We have added over 250 new products to our range that have been specifically asked for by you, our customers.

You wanted Kombucha – we got it!
You definitely wanted Booja Booja – yep! We got it.

Our fridges are stocked with a wider range of cheese alternatives and drinks, our shelves now have more gluten free foods and for those who wanted more snacks and treats you can now find vegan marshmallows and more vegan and organic chocolate bars than you could hope for.

But we aren’t done yet…

Our customers and the community play a pivotal role in our shop, not only in the product range but also in how we take things forward. We want to create workshops and put on events on topics like healthy eating & nutrition, first steps towards a vegan diet, even meditation and holistic therapies. We want to work on projects and create events that benefit the community and bring people together.

  • If you have any suggestions on how we can help by putting on events or how we could use our store, then get in touch.
  • If you can think of products you’d like us to stock, get in touch.
  • If you can think of any local groups or people we should be talking to (maybe yourself) then get in touch.

Xover Nutrition as a business may be new to Kings Heath but we aren’t. We are a local family who have a dream for our shop and you and everyone else play an important part in that.

Please come and see us in the shop or complete the form below with any thoughts you may have.

What is CDB oil and how does it work?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that are found in plants within the cannabis family, including hemp and marijuana. There are over 110 different types of cannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD) is one of them. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the cannabinoid that has far-reaching medical benefits that people are able to take advantage of in a way that is natural and non-habit forming. It is used in the form of CBD oil.

The Way It Works

Mammals have a system in their body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system regulates various functions within the body such as sleep, immune system response, pain, and various neurological functions through the use of neurotransmitters. It is based on the ability of CBD oil to affect this system and the way the neurotransmitters communicate with the brain that it has multiple medicinal benefits for people and pets.

  • Physical- The body produces endocannabinoids, a type of neurotransmitter, that interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBD impacts the activity of these receptors and thus provide pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects. If the transmitters are not telling the receptors to send out pain signals, there is not as much pain and not as much inflammation. There are some studies that suggest that it also has serious anticancer effects as well.
  • Emotional- CBD oil has been shown to improve the effects of emotional issues, such as anxiety, stress, and depression. It interacts with the receptors in the brain that release serotonin, which is a hormone that affects mood and behavior. The CBD oil elicits a response from the brain to release this hormone to counteract the effects of issues such as these.
  • Mental- CBD oil has also been shown to provide benefits for such conditions as multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. It works with the endocannabinoid system to curb the onset of symptoms such as muscle spasms, convulsions, and seizures. There are cases all over the world where people were not able to find relief for the symptoms that come with these conditions from the prescriptions, but CBD allowed for great improvements.

One of the best things about this oil is that it is giving people the freedom to be able to treat their conditions with a treatment that is natural. Most of these conditions are treated with prescription drugs with various dangerous side effects, including being addictive. Scientists all over the world are currently working on unlocking all the benefits and effects that CBD has for people. They are also working to discover the benefits of the various other cannabinoids that are in cannabis plants. There are also no serious side effects from this oil that have been discovered. It is not possible to overdose or become addicted to CBD oil. It helps a wide range of people with a wide range of various conditions and ailments.
