    chef2It can be frustrating trying to figure out which foods to eat to stay healthy. Which foods should you avoid and which ones are right for you and your family? Do you get in a rut making the same things over and over? It can be taxing just trying to figure out what to prepare. Whether you’re single or a busy parent, it’s the same issue: you need simple, easy-to-make meals that are nutritious. After all, it is true – you are what you eat.

  • Nutrient Deficiencies Are Common: We’re Here to Help

    by Marc Isaacson, President, Village Green Apothecary | November 12, 2014

    family-in-woodsRecent studies show that many people are not getting the nutrients their bodies need. In spite of the fact that 65% of Americans take supplements, 98% have nutrient deficiencies. Why is this? There are many factors at play here, and one of them is that taking a multivitamin without an understanding of what you need is like throwing darts in the dark.

    Here are a few more reasons why nutrient deficiencies are so prevalent:

    • Prescriptions can rob you of specific nutrients that are not taken into account in mass-produced multivitamins.
    • Our diets are not always nutritionally balanced.
    • Over-farming and other commercial farming practices have created foods with less nutrient density.
    • Stress, negative emotions and poor diet can lower body pH, which affects vital nutrients as the body works to rebalance pH.
    • Each person has unique biochemical needs that may be different from other people’s needs.

    Why does matching your body’s nutrient needs matter?

    • Nutrient deficiencies are a leading cause of chronic health conditions and diseases.
    • Nutrients are the essential building blocks for maintaining good health.
    • Nutrients allow the body to build, repair and to help you feel your best.  Read more
