This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get asked. How do I know which supplements to choose? With literally thousands of nutritional supplements on store shelves and available online, how do you know which ones are quality and which are not? The first thing I always suggest is that you trust where you buy your nutritional products.

We have worked with the best companies, doctors and nutritionists to develop Pathway, our own in-house supplement line that provides the best ingredients and most up-to-date science.

Did you know that Village Green Apothecary has safely provided prescription drugs for over 50 years? And compounding is a big part of that. Our compounding pharmacy specializes in custom compounding of vitamins, minerals and prescription drugs. Individualized compounds are prepared on orders from a nutritionist or physician, like a regular prescription, and offer several distinct advantages over mass-produced bottled products.
One of the most important aspects of Village Green is our pharmacists’ depth of knowledge. They know a lot about nutrition and alternative medicine, drug-nutrient interactions and drug-herb interactions. Continue reading “Reasons to Choose a Compounding Pharmacy”
On October 26, a number of collection sites around the country will be taking back unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs through the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Are you about to start a course of antibiotics? Well, don’t forget your probiotics. While the appropriate use of antibiotics does serve a role in fighting off unruly bacterial infections, it can also do a number on your gastrointestinal tract (and vaginal tract for females). As the public’s familiarity of probiotics increases thanks to the marketing of such products as Activia yogurt, the advice to supplement with probiotics while on antibiotics isn’t so “alternative” anymore.

Do you have either over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medicine that is expired or that you want to get rid of? Throwing these things in the trash, pouring them down the sink or flushing them down the toilet are all the WRONG things to do. Medicine disposed of in this way can end up in the environment (e.g., in our waterways), as well as in the hands of children, teens and adults who might accidentally or intentionally look to use them inappropriately.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. Continue reading “Got Drugs?
