  • Health Benefits of Melatonin – Not Just for Sleep!

    by Margo Gladding | August 11, 2015

    melatoninWhen I think of the supplement melatonin, the first thing that comes to mind is supporting sleep. It can be very helpful for initiating sleep, increasing sleep duration, as well as regulating circadian rhythm and reducing jet lag. But, new research shows many more exciting health benefits of melatonin. For example, studies indicate that it can also protect against neurodegenerative diseases and brain injury, help with migraines, provide important support for cancer patients, support heart health, and protect the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

    Melatonin is a hormone that is produced from the pineal gland in the brain. But, it is now known that it is also produced in multiple sites in the body. In fact, up to 500 times more melatonin is synthesized in the intestinal tract than in the pineal gland. Derived from the amino acid L-tryptophan, melatonin has powerful antioxidant capabilities and anti-inflammatory properties. Promising new areas of research include: Read more

  • Enhance Your Workout with Pathway Cleanfit BCAA

    by Paula Gallagher | August 4, 2015

    bcaa_1Branched-chain amino acids (or BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: valine, leucine and isoleucine. Essential amino acids are amino acids that our bodies cannot produce from other materials, and so we must ingest them regularly. Good sources are lean meats, egg whites, and dairy products. Pathway Cleanfit™ BCAA powder is also an excellent source. This water-soluble formula of BCAAs, glutamine and B vitamins mixes easily into water for maximum absorption.

    Pathway Cleanfit BCAA provides branched-chain amino acids that are essential to building and maintaining muscle tissue and have long been used by athletes and other active individuals to activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training or physical activity.

    In addition to helping build muscle, BCAAs can be used by muscle cells as an indirect energy source during strenuous exercise without forming pain-causing lactate. Normally, when we perform strenuous exercise while burning other fuel sources such as fat or carbohydrate, a byproduct called lactate is produced. Lactate is the chemical responsible for your painful and stiff muscles the morning after a hard workout. Read more

  • Village Green Event: CELLFOOD Demo

    by Paula Gallagher | July 14, 2015

    cellfoodVisit Village Green Apothecary on Friday July 17 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm to learn more about CELLFOOD.

    CELLFOOD is an oxygen plus nutrient supplement, an antioxidant that contains minerals, enzymes, and amino acids. Antioxidants are directly responsible for the prevention of cellular damage by neutralizing and eliminating free radicals, which are thought to contribute to cancer and other health issues. In a recent study, CELLFOOD was shown to decrease excess free radical activity by up to 27%.

    CELLFOOD also helps detoxify the body and balance pH, as well as support athletic performance. In a study conducted at the University of Pretoria, it was shown to increase oxygen uptake (VO2 Max), increase ferretin (iron storage), and decrease lactic acid accumulation (muscular fatigue).

    Come by our store this Friday to check out CELLFOOD products!

  • Pathway MYO-MAG : Energy Support

    by Paula Gallagher | July 8, 2015

    myo-mag_1I recently had a customer email me about how tired she was. Her diet was pretty good, she was sleeping well, and blood work was coming back normal. She eventually tried numerous supplements. The one she had success with was Pathway Myo-Mag.

    Pathway Myo-Mag is a supplement that contains ingredients known to participate in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. ATP basically is our energy source and it is in every single one of our cells. One capsule of Myo-Mag contains 100 mg of magnesium and 440 mg of malic acid. Important B vitamins are also included for added energy support.

    It is known that when certain nutrients are not present in adequate amounts within the mitochondria, a vicious cycle can occur in which ATP is not created in amounts sufficient for proper cell function. Insufficient amounts of ATP mean that the B vitamins will not adequately be produced, leading to improper metabolism and further reductions in ATP production. The result: fatigue and  muscle weakness.
