Innate Product Demonstration: Flu Prevention Protocol, Monday, November 25

Innate Response Formulas isn’t your everyday vitamin company. They have been in business for over 40 years, long before “whole foods” was a buzz phrase. Innate provides whole food nutrition, with the understanding that optimal health starts from the ground up – and thus, personal and environmental health are one and the same. Protecting health and environment means continuously striving for sustainable manufacturing and business practices.

On Monday, a representative from Innate will be at Village Green to tell you how you can protect yourself and your family from the flu virus by providing a safe, natural approach to strengthening your immune system.

Innate Immune Response is a supplement that does just that. This formula has been designed specifically to take advantage of the immune-supportive properties of some of the world’s most powerful botanicals and nutrients like beta glucans, astragalus, and mushrooms.

The product demonstration will run from 11:30 am until 2:00 pm. For more information, please call Village Green at 800-869-9159.

Please Note: Innate Response prohibits discounts of their products online. You can take advantage of our 25% off discount on these products during our current sale (through December 31) by shopping at our store in Bethesda, MD or by calling in your order. Phone: 800-869-9159.

BIG YEAR-END SALE: Stock Up on the Basics

It’s that time of year again! Village Green Apothecary’s Big Year-End Sale starts today and runs through December 31, 2013. Here are the details:

  • 35% off Pathway nutritional supplements
  • 25% off other supplement lines*

This is a great time to stock up on those everyday items like multivitamins, fish oil, and vitamin D! Especially if you have a big family.

Fish Oil provides omega 3 fatty acids, critical for heart health, brain function and hormone production.

Vitamin A for Healthy Immunity this Winter

I don’t know if you realize it or not, but adequate food sources of pure vitamin A have been missing in our diets for years now. This is in part due to a decrease in the amount of liver and organ meats consumed in the Standard American Diet. It can also be attributed to avoidance of butter, whole milk and egg yolk for fear of rising cholesterol levels. Vitamin A is an essential fat soluble vitamin that is vital for growth and development of all organs, but with a special affinity for eye health. It’s no wonder that science is now witnessing an increase in vision related disorders, with the most dramatic being diabetic retinopathy. At this time of year, vitamin A is also so very important in dealing with the cold and flu season. It’s time to boost your health by getting adequate amounts of vitamin A for good health.  Continue reading “Vitamin A for Healthy Immunity this Winter”

Tips for a Healthy Prostate

November is upon us, or should I saw Movember? Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities.

1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. And although treatment and early detection is what this Mustouche Growing Movement is all about, prevention is cirtical in slowing down the rates of prostate cancer, as well as other male cancers.

Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in men over 75 years old. Age and family history are the primary risk factors. Prostate cancer rarely occurs in men under the age of 45-50 years old. It is also much more likely (double the risk) if you have a first degree relative with prostate cancer, particularly a brother.
