Interested in the benefits that omega 3’s provide but don’t want to a fish source? Neuromins may be for you. Neuromins is derived from algae grown outside the ocean, so you don’t have to worry about ocean-borne pollutants. Neuromins DHA is also the only FDA approved omega 3 supplement to be put in infant formula.
So what are the benefits of DHA? There really are plenty, but here are three that demonstrate that everyone from infants to adults can benefit from this supplement. Continue reading “Pathway Neuromins: The Vegetarian DHA Supplement”

Food allergies are no fun. They can result in an immediate reaction such as anaphylaxis, wheezing and or hives. There can also be delayed reactions that the body has in response to certain foods. Many people have food sensitivities but are unaware of them. Fatigue, mood swings, runny nose, forgetfulness and digestive symptoms, like gas and bloating may all be symptoms of food sensitivity. Common culprits are dairy, wheat, eggs and soy.
The problem with continuing to eat foods that cause allergic reactions is that it can, over time, lead to chronic health conditions like leaky gut syndrome (more on that lovely topic in a future blog).
ALCAT is a food sensitivity test that can test for 200 foods, additives and colorings, environmental chemicals, molds and more. If you think you may have a food allergy, consult with your health care practitioner about what you can do. If you do have a food allergy, Village Green nutritional consultants can help you with supplement and dietary questions. We offer a large selection of supplements that omit common allergens.

A Northwestern University study, published today, suggests that parents should ease up on the antibacterial soaps because germs can be beneficial. According to the lead author, Thomas McDade, “Contrary to assumptions related to earlier studies, our research suggests that ultra-clean, ultra-hygienic environments early in life may contribute to higher levels of inflammation as an adult, which in turn increases risks for a wide range of diseases.” Hygiene is still important, but if the cookie falls on the floor, it may not be so awful if your child picks it up and eats it. The message that he wants Americans to get from this study is about the importance of being exposed early in life to common microbes and bacteria.
Everyone wonders what vitamins they should be taking. Even I sometimes wonder if I am overdoing it. Besides a multi-vitamin, essential fatty acids and some digestive aids, what else should I be taking?
Spectracell Nutrient Analysis can help you determine that. A simple blood test measures levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients in your white blood cells (lymphocytes). This will give nutrient levels over a 4-6 month period (rather than a snapshot of nutrient intake). Did you know that the Journal of the American Medical Association connects nutrient deficiencies to disease processes? The best part of the Spectracell test is that it is covered by most health insurance plans.
