The 4 Best Supplements To Survive The Holiday Season

The festive season is upon us, and that means plenty of food and fun times with family and friends! Even if you’re diligent with your diet during the year, it can be easy to let things slip as soon as the delicious holiday treats come out. Not to mention, there’s likely to be plenty of alcohol to celebrate the season. Don’t fear the Christmas blowout. We’ve got you covered with the best supplements to help you stay on track with your fitness goals!

1. Protein

Without a doubt, protein is an essential aspect of gaining and maintaining muscle. Without it, you’ll most likely overindulge in tasty carbohydrates and fats, especially the processed ones found in all the holiday snacks headed your way!

By regularly eating protein in the form of food (think plenty of lean meats, and tofu if you’re plant-based), you can help ward off cravings that’ll prompt you to sneak in a few too many bites of Christmas pudding. When you go to your social celebrations, load up on healthy high-protein foods and plenty of fresh salad. It’ll keep you fuller for longer and help you maintain a trimmer waistline while still enjoying a couple of champagnes!

If you’re worried about overeating at social events, a great way to prevent it from happening is by enjoying a delicious protein shake beforehand. Not only will it help you satisfied, but it’ll also help you meet your protein targets, so you can maintain muscle in the gym even if you’re in holiday mode.

2. Fish Oil

If you’re planning to indulge, help your body offset some of the negative repercussions by supplying it with a healthy source of fats. Fish oil is rich in omega-3 fats that your body needs to promote balance, with its anti-inflammatory effects. Most processed foods contain an overabundance of omega-6 fatty acids, which pushes the ratio of omega-3 to omega -6 out of whack.

 Product recommendations:

3. Digestive enzymes

When you eat food your body isn’t used to, it can promote feelings of bloating and stomach distension. Even though you want to enjoy those delicious Christmas hampers and gorgeous platters, it can come at a cost when your body is used to processing the same kinds of foods.

With a little helping hand from digestive enzymes, you can be in a better position to sit and enjoy your food without fear. This isn’t to say you should go full ham and gorge on everything you see, but it does mean you can have more confidence in enjoying the foods you love over the holidays. Less time worrying about digestion = more time enjoying your family and friends!

If you feel like you’ve taken things too far this time around, you can embrace the new year with a ‘reset’ by using one of our comprehensive gut-health blends.

4. Liver-supporting herbs

Had a few too many drinks? We all know it’s not healthy, but sometimes it happens. Instead of beating yourself up, you can use it as fuel to bounce back stronger. We don't want to be a party pooper, but remember to enjoy alcohol in moderation – not only will you avoid any embarrassing holiday memories, but you’ll also wake up hang-over free and ready to smash any workout you choose!

If you overdid it, put the past behind you and plan so you can avoid the same pitfall next time. A great way to start feeling better is nourishing your body with healthy foods that give you vitality and energy. Though a green juice won’t undo the damage from the night before, it can be a kickstart to a healthier you.

To give your hard-working liver the support it needs, you can supplement your diet with carefully constructed blends that are designed to help put you back into balance.
