About Us

Welcome to Bassett's Health Foods


 From the inception, our concept was based on independence, health, freedom and being responsible for our own health. Our goal is to make our family and our customer's knowledgeable enough to control their own lives. Because of this, we always promote education, information and top-quality products. We have studied with some of the most famous natural teachers, doctors and scientists of these times and have taught classes all over the Midwest from Buffalo, New York to Chicago, Illinois and far south. We have taught as many as 100 classes a year. OUR MAJOR MISSION IS THE HEALTH OF OUR EXTENDED FAMILY—YOUR HEALTH!
