Three Ways to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
Guest post by Lee Crosby, R.D. My doctor found some suspicious spots in my left breast in 2010. A biopsy showed they weren’t cancer, but that I had a higher risk for cancer down the road. My doctor also found a “thickened” area in my right breast she wanted to keep an eye on. I was only 30 years old, so that got my attention! I was determined to...

The world of vitamins and minerals can be confusing and intimidating. There are eight forms of vitamin B alone! In the next few weeks, I hope to bring a little more clarity to vitamins and minerals, the reasons we need them, the different forms they come in, and...

Dinner Tonight: Carrot Ginger Soup
I picked up a bushel (yes, a bushel) of carrots at a local farm this past weekend. Apparently, it was a great year for carrots around here. With visions of stews, casseroles, and healhy-ish muffins, I hauled the 15 pound bushel of orange goodness home. First on...

Vitamin A for Healthy Immunity this Winter
I don’t know if you realize it or not, but adequate food sources of pure vitamin A have been missing in our diets for years now. This is in part due to a decrease in the amount of liver and...

Antioxidant Power of Carotenoids
Found in many yellow, orange and red fruits and veggies, carotenoids are a class of compounds related to vitamin A. The carotenes include beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin. Beta-carotene, often used in place of vitamin A for supplementation, is converted to vitamin A in the liver when your body needs it. The beta-carotene that is...

Support Your Immune System: Plant Sterols
Sterols and sterolins aren't what most people reach for when supporting the immune system - however, sterols and sterolins do have immune regulating effects. Plant sterols, also known as phytosterols, are healthy plant fats found naturally in cold-pressed or unrefined oils, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains. Along with helping the immune system,...

PRO Eye Floaters
I use it as an anti-inflammatory. It was recommended by a family member. I buy all my supplements from Village Green; and have done so for many years.
I have been taking this for about 6 weeks and have less pain in the joint/ muscles, have more energy and overall feel better. I would say it works.
Great product. Have used it for many years and I highly recommend it.
Village Green has excellent service as usual! 😊
I've been visiting Village Green Apothecary and its predecessor for at least 45 years: I trust them and they bend over backwards to guide you, find what you need, and solve problems. The staff are uniformly cheerful, and knowledgeable. It is a pleasant place to shop. This pharmacy is lightyears ahead of conventional drugstore pharmacies.
Used this for years for fibromyalgia and long covid muscle pain. Works wonders.
Have used cranberry concentrate for decades. Very satisfied with this product. Evelyne Laurin
Excellent service & delivery was quick too.
Helps with my reflux & leaky Gut
I discovered Sleepy Chocolate a couple of years ago. When I travel, or have an excess of stress, it’s sometimes difficult to sleep at night. I found that one, or two sections of a bar, is enough for a more restful sleep. Even if I wake a little later, I’m able to drift back to sleep. Keep in mind however, that it’s up to you to know when to stop drinking caffeine, alcohol or indulge in sweets and/or pre-bedtime meals. Sleepy Chocolate is a wonderful gift but it won’t cover for our choices.
Peppermint Oil 250mg
Very pleased with the purchase, was shipped with an ice pack at no additional cost which was nice. Pollen is potent and as high quality as I've had. Good texture and taste, leaves a sweet aftertaste. Will buy again :)
