Supplements for a Healthy Holiday Season!

Crowded shopping malls, overeating, increased alcohol consumption and strained family relations can leave even the most health-savvy individual physically, emotionally and nutritionally drained. We’ve put together a list of beneficial supplements that will support you & help you to get through this busy & often indulgent period.

Stress

  • Magnesium - is vital for energy production, regulating the stress response and reducing inflammation. "Remember, Magnesium comes in a variety of forms, some healthier than others". 
  • Gaba - As joyous as they are, the holidays have the uncanny ability to send our brains into a decision making frenzy. GABA is a naturally occurring amino acid that works by preventing neurotransmitters from over firing during high periods of stress and anxiety.
  • St Johns Wort - The extracts of this summer perennial help to manage anxiety, sadness, depression and fatigue, whilst enhancing the body’s ability to cope with stress.
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil - Studies have concluded that the EPA and DHA compounds in Omega-3 essential fatty acids seem to have a very positive impact on how well the body handles stress and anxiety. Not limited to times of stress only. Fish oil plays a number of roles within the body that can influence holiday wellness, and year-round health. "Ensure you only use High Quality, High Strength Fish Oil or you are wasting your money".

Digestive Support

During the holidays, our digestive systems are subject to food and goodies that lack fiber and other nutritional properties, making digestion an arduous task. Luckily there are several ways you can support the digestive process during this time to assist with such issues.

  • High Potency Digestive Enzymes – Plant based enzymes to enhance digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
  • High Strength Probiotics - Strain specific probiotics, help to maintain barrier integrity and reduce gut derived inflammation. A daily dose of these non-pathogenic microorganisms help to protect against gut infection, manage gut disturbances, balance immunity, prevent carcinogenic changes in the colon, support detoxification, control systemic inflammation and reduce cardiovascular risks.

Energy

  • B Complex Vitamins - The family of B vitamins play an active role in virtually every aspect of life, and are of considerable importance for anyone who lacks energy during the hustle and bustle of the busy holiday season. Look for a "stress" formula for added support.
  • Multiple Vitamin & Mineral Formula - Whilst taking a multi-vitamin won't send you bouncing off the walls, make no mistake - a good supplement can provide the nutritional foundation essential to thousands of biological actions, including cellular energy production.
