During these uncertain times, the need for healthy supplements is more than ever. A Way of Life located at 9515 N Milwaukee Avenue in Niles stocks their shelves with a variety of herbal supplements, essential oils, natural health and beauty products, and herbal teas. 

They provide a wide selection in all of these options, but recently the product with the most demand is Vitamin C. Some of the many benefits that Vitamin C includes is protection against immune system deficiencies, boost in antioxidant levels in the blood, cardiovascular health and much more. 

Owner, Joshlyn Atoyebi chose to do something in light of these demands! She decided to donate Vitamin C Supplements to the local senior centers. As many of us know, COVID-19 also known as Coronavirus is affecting us all, but the virus is a higher risk for individuals 65 and older.

Joshlyn chose to join the Niles Chamber in January of 2020 to expand her business and A Way of Life officially welcomed their new owners to Niles on March 14th, 2020 with the Village of Niles Mayor Andrew Przybylo. Below Joshlyn tells us a little more about her spark of generosity.


Can you tell us about the benefits of Vitamin C, as well as the choice to provide this supplement over the rest? 

Most people know Vitamin C for its benefits of boosting the immune system, but it actually has several benefits outside of that.”

Vitamin C also has been proven to aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease and even skin wrinkling. 

Right now, the best defense our bodies have against COVID-19 is a strong immune system as there are no approved vaccinations or drug treatments.


Tell us a little bit about your business and background. 

A Way of Life Nutrition Center has been a part of the city of Niles community for over 41 years. The previous owner retired last year and we purchased the business.

 We specialize in all kinds of natural vitamins, supplements, herbs, CBD and health and beauty products. We have a nutrition background and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. 

We also have special supplements for some well known health issues like diabetes, blood pressure, joint pain and inflammation, arthritis, cholesterol and many more.


What sparked your generosity to do this? 

This is an unprecedented time which is causing a lot of uncertainty and fear in people- especially the communities that are most at risk. 

We are very fortunate to be able to continue to serve the city of Niles as an essential business and we wanted to help in any way possible to ease some of the worry and tension that others may be feeling.

We also know that it’s hard to purchase vitamin C supplements from some stores now due to high demands. That’s why we decided to ease the tension of supplement scarcity off our seniors in the city of Niles.
