Getting to Know B Vitamins
The second installment of Vitamins and Minerals: From A to Zinc, is all about the Bs. Actually, four of the Bs, particularly B1, B2, B3 and B5. Watch for the B6, B7, B9 and B12 in a blog next week. B vitamins are complicated because there are 8 of them, and although they are all lumped under the term vitamin B, each one has...

Niacin, No-Flush Niacin & Niacinamide - What's the Difference?
A question I get asked frequently is about niacin and what forms to take. It does seem confusing, especially when using the correct chemical names. Let's start with what niacin really is. The Composition of Niacin Niacin (nicotinic acid)...

The study, published in the The New England Journal of Medicine, involved 363 people who had heart disease or were at high risk of heart disease. All the patients...

Lower Lipids Naturally
So often I am asked if cholesterol or triglycerides can be lowered without prescription medication. The answer is yes. First, know what your low-density cholesterol (LDL, “bad cholesterol”) is and what it should be. If it is greater than 130, it is probably too high. If it is over 100 and you have one...

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 :)
