Slow Down When You Eat... It May Prevent Heart Disease
While exercise has been shown to reduce obesity and other health conditions, including helping prevent Syndrome X, a metabolic illness largely characterized by resistance to insulin, research suggests that people who eat slowly are less likely than speed-eaters to become obese or to develop metabolic syndrome. Syndrome X, also known as metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance syndrome, has been proven to be...

New Sugar Limit Recommendations For Children
Why We Have Obese Children
I walked into the room where my kids were watching TV. Within a few short minutes, I was bombarded with commercials for highly sugared, highly processed nutrient-void “sub foods.” These commercials promised fun, friendship and a way into the “in crowd.” What’s the REAL promise our children can count on? A future of obesity....

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 :)
