Choosing Top-Quality Supplements

Spread the love

Best-Brands_Fall18Right now, Village Green Apothecary is having its annual fall Best Brands Sale. This is a terrific time to take advantage of great deals on some of the best top-quality supplements on the market. Pathway products are currently 30% off, and Thorne, Xymogen, Metagenics, Nordic Naturals, Life Extension and Pure Encapsulations are 25% off.  We also have 20% off personal  care products! The sale runs until September 29.

This is a good opportunity to stock up on multivitamins, omega-3s and other supplements that you take. And if you have never taken a supplement and do not know where to start, we can help.

When it comes to choosing the most beneficial products, there are four important things to look for:

1. Quality ingredients: Look for patented, trademarked ingredients (examples: Ester-C®, Suntheanine®), as well as vitamin and mineral forms that are highly absorbable (examples: calcium hydroxyapatite or calcium citrate, rather than calcium carbonate).

2. Purity: Read the label. Ideally you want products that are free of wheat, gluten, corn, dairy products, eggs, yeast, heavy metals, preservatives, and artificial colors or flavors, as well as products that do not contain any unnecessary binders and fillers.

3. Scientific validation: Products need to work and should only contain ingredients and formulas demonstrated to be effective in clinical trials and research studies, as well as have independent third-party testing.

4. Careful manufacturing: Meticulous quality assurance procedures should be followed and products tested to ensure proper breakdown by the body.

Different supplement lines have different values regarding these four aspects of product quality. At Village Green, it is our passion and commitment to provide our customers with premium products, and to this end, we created the Pathway line, which has over 150 single nutrient and combination formulas. Pathway products meet all of the criteria listed above – they are carefully formulated to contain the finest raw materials in forms that are well absorbed and assimilated into the body, as well as being 100% natural and hypoallergenic, designed with our customers’ health in mind.

And these points aren’t just for supplements! At Village Green we try our best to offer personal products that are pure and clean.  MyChelle Dermaceuticals, Alteya and Valley Green Naturals are just a few of the many personal care product lines that we carry.
