  • July 29: Vibrant Health In-Store Product Demo

    by Paula Gallagher | July 22, 2014

    Visit Village Green Apothecary on July 29 from 11 am to 2 pm to sample Vibrant Health Green Vibrance and Vibrant Health PureGreen Protein.

    Vibrant Health's products provide supplemental nutrition that supports human biochemistry. One of their main principles is "Be The Best." This can be seen with their most popular product, Green Vibrance.

    Green Vibrance was the first green superfood introduced into health food stores in 1992. Since that time, it has undergone 12 reformulations. The trace nutrients help each cell function at peak efficiency; when we push each cell toward peak efficiency through diet and supplementation, the result may be increased energy and endurance, greater clarity of thought, and more robust immunity. There are a whopping 74 ingredients in Green Vibrance, put together to maximize the synergism among nutrients.

    PureGreen Protein is vegan and offers the amino acid ratio of human muscle by combining a variety of plant proteins in correct amounts and adding a few specific free amino acids. PureGreen Protein is a non-GMO protein from pea, rice, spirulina and alfalfa combined with four select free amino acids to create the first all-vegetable protein ideally balanced for human consumption.

    To try these two wonderful products and to learn more about Vibrant Health, please come by on July 29 from 11am to 2pm!

  • 2 More Weeks of Village Green's Summer Sale

    by Paula Gallagher | July 1, 2014

    Village Green's Summer Sale is going strong. If you haven't taken advantage of the great deals yet, you still have 2 weeks to do so. Pathway products are currently 30% off. This is a great opportunity for you to get your multivitamins, omega-3s, and all your essential nutrients. Pathway B Complex is one of my favorite onproducts from this line. It contains all the B vitamins necessary for metabolism of carbs, protein and fat, nervous function, adrenal health, healthy hair, skin and nails, energy, hormone health and so much more. As we get older, it becomes more difficult to assimilate the Bs, and B vitamins all work better when taken together.

    Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), also known as the "anti-stress vitamin," is just one of the many vitamins included. It supports the adrenal gland, where it aids in the production of hormones that help the body respond to stress, and the brain, where it produces neurotransmitters that are depleted in stressful situations.

    For more information about Village Green's Summer Sale, or any of our supplements, please contact us.
