Kosher Vitamins and Supplements at Village Green

If you want to ensure that you’re taking the most scrupulously produced supplements, you may want to consider kosher supplements. What makes them the best?

  • Kosher supplements are meticulously examined and evaluated to make sure they meet especially strict standards.
  • The kosher symbol ensures that the product and its ingredients are being stringently supervised, with each ingredient tracked to its origin, and strict hygienic rules imposed on production.
  • Kosher certification guarantees an extra level of purity and quality.

Yesterday, I wrote about the importance of multivitamins. Well…Village Green Apothecary also offers kosher multivitamins from brands like Maxi Health, Solgar and Bluebonnet.

Support Your Immune System: Multivitamin/Mineral

Even the most conscientious, healthy eaters may have a hard time getting all the vitamins and minerals required to prevent disease and illness.  Eating right is the first line of defense against all bugs, but a good multivitamin/mineral can provide some assurance against nutrient deficient diseases like rickets and scurvy. Look for a multivitamin that contains at least 100% of the required daily allowance (RDA) for vitamins A, C, D, E and your B vitamins. Choose one that is iron-free unless you are pregnant, or have been tested for iron deficiency.

Taking a multivitamin more than once per day can help keep water-soluble vitamins in your system longer. Look for one that is designed to take multiple times during the day.  Take your multivitamin with meals and a full glass of water to ensure proper digestion.

If you’d like some help picking out the right multi for you, give Village Green a call at 1-800-869-9159.

Supplements You Shouldn’t Live Without

This past Friday, Dr. Oz told his viewers what supplements he takes. Not surprisingly, they align very well with what Village Green Apothecary has been saying for years. He particularly targeted women over 40. The supplements he recommends  are:

1. Mutlivitamin: Only 1% of the population gets enough essential nutrients from diet alone, so a comprehensive multivitamin/mineral should be part of everyone’s routine. Divided doses are better because you get the most out of them.

2. Calcium: Important for muscles, teeth and bones, many women are not getting enough of this important nutrient. Add magnesium to calcium and you have an important foundation for strong bones. The best way to get calcium is a combination of food sources and supplements. Continue reading “Supplements You Shouldn’t Live Without”
