It's that time of year again! Village Green Apothecary’s Big Year-End Sale is on now and runs through December 31, 2019. Here are details of our year-end sale: • 35% off Pathway nutritional supplements • 25% off other supplement lines like Metagenics, Thorne, Xymogen and Nordic Naturals* • 20% off body care products This is a great opportunity for you to get your multivitamins, omega-3s, natural sunscreens and any of your natural healthcare needs. And if you have never taken a supplement and do not know where to start, we can help. When it comes to choosing the most beneficial products, there are four important things to look for:

1. Quality ingredients

Look for patented, trademarked ingredients (examples: Ester-C®, Suntheanine®), as well as vitamin and mineral forms that are highly absorbable (examples: calcium hydroxyapatite or calcium citrate, rather than calcium carbonate).

2. Purity

Read the label. Ideally you want products that are free of wheat, gluten, corn, dairy products, eggs, yeast, heavy metals, preservatives, and artificial colors or flavors. Also look for products that do not contain any unnecessary binders and fillers.

3. Scientific validation

Products need to work and should only contain ingredients and formulas demonstrated to be effective in clinical trials and research studies. Also look for independent third-party testing.

4. Careful manufacturing

Meticulous quality assurance procedures should be followed and products tested to ensure proper breakdown by the body. Different supplement lines have different values regarding these four aspects of product quality. At Village Green Apothecary, it is our passion and commitment to provide our customers with premium products. To this end, we created the Pathway line, which has over 120 single nutrient and combination formulas. Pathway products meet all of the criteria listed above – they are carefully formulated to contain the finest raw materials in forms that are well absorbed and assimilated into the body. They are also 100% natural and hypoallergenic, designed with our customers’ health in mind.
