  • New at Village Green: Bulletproof Ground Coffee

    by Paula Gallagher | January 13, 2016

    bulletproofFrom help with weight loss to improved overall health, Bulletproof Ground Coffee can help jump-start your day and energize your mind and body for hours.

    Bulletproof® coffee beans are meticulously grown at high altitude on single estates in Guatemala, hand-harvested, carefully processed, handled and roasted to maintain maximum integrity and flavor. The final roast then undergoes lab testing to verify that the coffee meets the Bulletproof quality and purity standards.

    To maximize the beneficial effects of coffees, it is recommended that you blend the coffee with grass-fed butter for improved performance and energy. This gives it a creamy, frothy taste that is a delicious start to the morning.

    To learn more about Bulletproof coffee listen to this past radio show, where Dave Asprey, the creator of Bulletproof Coffee, discusses strategies for taking control of and improving your body and mind so they work in unison.

    And for a limited time, Village Green Apothecary is offering 20% off Bulletproof Ground Coffee.

  • Village Green Uses BPA-Free Receipts

    by Margo Gladding | January 11, 2016

    VGA-receiptIn recent years, the dangers of bisphenol A (BPA) have been the subject of many news and health reports. Research shows that elevated levels of BPA can lead to dangerous neurological and hormonal disruptions. As a result, many companies have voluntarily removed the chemical from plastic products such water bottles, food storage containers, baby bottles, and toys. But, did you know that another dangerous source of BPA is in cash register receipts? Many of the receipts that come from major retailers, grocery stores, convenience stores, gas stations, fast-food restaurants, post offices and automatic teller machines (ATMs) contain BPA that is easily absorbed through the skin.

    Studies have found that people who continuously handle store receipts wind up with significantly elevated levels of BPA. Further concern is for people who handle BPA-coated receipts after sanitizing their hands or after touching fast food items. Aware of the potential health consequences of BPA, we at Village Green Apothecary are happy to let you know that we are using BPA-free receipts for the wellbeing of our employees and customers.

  • Village Green Launches New Rx Advantage Program for Generic Prescription Drugs

    by Village Green Admin | December 2, 2015

    Rx symbol-12Village Green’s Rx Advantage is a prescription drug program that offers select generic medications at lower prices without submission through insurance. It helps to minimize trips to the pharmacy for refills by allowing for the flexibility of a 3, 6 or 9 month supply. (Please note: all prescriptions need to be written for the 3, 6 or 9 month quantities.)

    This innovative new cash-only program was brought to Village Green by our pharmacist, Emily Shewmaker, and it promises to be a hit with both our customers and area medical practitioners. In fact, you don't have to be local to take advantage of Rx Advantage – prescriptions are welcome from health professionals in many other states, as well. This list of over 50 generic prescription drugs is being offered at a significant discount over generic prices at most other pharmacies (local price comparisons are here); a 3-month supply of any of these generic drugs costs $27, a 6-month supply is $42, and a 9-month supply just $55 – these prices constitute a flat rate for anything on the list. This program bypasses health insurance companies and pharmacy industry middlemen to save money for patients and self-insured businesses. Read more
