Health supplements to help you survive the holidays

Health supplements to help you survive the holidays 1

The holiday season is always a busy one and can be pretty stressful too, thanks to not-always-joyous family gatherings and a host of extra expenses. Happily, there are lots of supplements you can take to help you cope and we’ve got a few good suggestions.

Say no to stress
If you’re feeling the pressure or just needing an energy boost, considering investing in a goodie for stress, Medford L-Theanine. L-Theanine is derived from green tea and can help inspire a sense of calm. As it increases your brain’s alpha waves, the ones that make you feel relaxed, but not sleepy, you don’t have to worry about daytime drowsiness.

Still, when it’s bedtime, you’re going to want to get as much sleep as possible. Deep, restorative sleep is one of the best things we can do to combat stress. This is where Renewal Institute GABA can help you out. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is produced naturally in your brain. Consuming more of it can also help increase your brain’s alpha waves. Studies have also shown that it can have a positive effect on your mood. What’s not to love?

Take good care of your skin 
There’s nothing like getting a little holiday sunshine, but never step outside without using a high protection factor. You can also create a second line of defence with a sun smart like Heliocare 360 or Lamelle Ovelle D3. Both of these can enhance your skin’s resistance to the sun and minimise your risk of pigmentation. They also contain botanically-derived super antioxidants that can help fend off damaging free-radicals and preserve your skin’s collagen supply.

Another skin concern that tends to crop up over the holidays is a stress-related acne breakout. If you’re prone, consider taking Renewal Institute Acne Aid 2 in 1. It contains natural anti-inflammatory ingredients as well as antimicrobial ones that can kill the bacteria responsible for pimples.

Don’t let overindulgence get you down
The holiday season goes hand in hand with rich, decadent meals and, for some, one too many drinks. Fortunately, there are many things you can take to help your liver deal with the onslaught and one of them is Health Renewal Liver S Plus. It contains milk thistle and dandelion to improve your liver’s natural detoxification process.

You might also want to consider something like Medford Barlean’s Platinum Stomach Repair. It helps thicken up your stomach’s protective lining, reduce harmful bacteria and absorb toxins. It’s a top pick for anyone who battles with heartburn, gas or acid reflux.

With the right supplements, you can sail through the silly season and enjoy a healthy, happy holiday!
