The Supplements You Need To Survive The Holidays Healthfully
If you're like me, the stress of the holiday season, combined with travel and being exposed to sick family members, can really take its toll on health and negatively affect our weight. There are simple things that we can do to protect our health and continue to lose weight throughout the holiday season.
Whether you’re looking forward to the holidays or dreading it, one thing is for sure, the holidays can be harder on your immune system unless you take precautions to protect it. By the time the holidays are over, and it's time to go back to work, your body can get so run down that it needs another vacation to recover, which is not an option. Sound familiar?
For me, the combination of stress, being exposed to travel germs, struggling to fit in exercise or wellness routines, and nutritional challenges like excess sugar consumption, can be a lethal combination that can take me down big time, and last until spring. But I've got a solution... here is the Happy, Healthy Holiday Survival Guide.
If you follow these supplement essentials for a healthy holiday, you'll keep your immune system functioning optimally, keep those extra pounds from creeping on, and avoid the adrenal stressors that can negatively affect thyroid function.
This one will never go away, and remember your body needs consistency when it comes to protecting gut health to keep your metabolic fires burning. Drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake or eating a Lean Bar will help keep you regular, keep your digestive system operating smoothly, and keep your gut in check. Not to mention, it will prevent weight gain and might even help you lose weight this holiday season. And don't forget to pack them when you travel!
Do your shots of LynFit Daily Power Shots... the best liquid multivitamin you can buy.
One shot daily contains all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body needs to stay healthy while providing natural energy so you can power through your day during this busy time of year.
The not-so-healthy, simple sugar and carb-loaded holiday foods, stress, and medications all deplete b-vitamins and weakens our immune system. A shot of Daily Power Shot is not only the best high-quality multivitamin you can buy without a prescription, but it also delivers a clinical dose, which is the amount you need to stay healthy. Power Shot and is absorbed versus digested, so it goes to work right away. *NOTE: If you feel like you're getting sick, have a shot right away!
Take (2 droppers full) of LynFit Thyro-Boost daily to keep the pounds away and your body detoxified!
Alcohol, baked goods, cookies, mashed potatoes, or even starchy squash all make it a little tricky to get your nutrients in; not to mention, they slow thyroid health and weaken adrenal function. Chances are, you’re not going to be nourishing yourself during the holidays as much as you do before bathing suit season, so yes, I do suggest that everyone take Thyro-Boost, even if you don't have thyroid issues. (We all do from time-to-time, and also as we age, our thyroid slows from stress.)
Thyro-Boost is one of the best kept nourishing superfood secrets. It contains spirulina, kelp, and nutrients that keep our thyroid and entire body super-healthy. Nettles and Ashwagandha help ease stress and keep our bodies leaner and lighter. I highly doubt any of these super-nutrients are in your holiday food menu :)
Everyone can safely take Thyro-Boost. It's also the perfect way to pack vitamins, minerals, and photo-nutrients into your day to support detoxification and immunity.
Don't forget your LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost!
While sunlight is our most important source of vitamin-D, during the holiday season, for most of us, that is when we get the least amount of it. Vitamin D3 Boost has extra benefits because we added wellmune, which is a proprietary blend of natural beta-glucans and arabinogalactans that have been shown to greatly enhance immune function, especially in people who are fighting cancer or their immune systems are dramatically impaired due to cancer treatments.
Wellmune is well-studied, safe, and natural. It's gluten and allergen-free, as are most LynFit supplements. D3 Boost begins to work within 1-2 days of taking it and should be used regularly for the best results, especially in pregnant or nursing mothers, as well as anyone over the age of 50. A dropper full of D3 Boost daily keeps the colds and flu away!
Take D3 Boost to kill off bacteria and boost your immunity while you’re on-the-go. I recommend a double dosage of one dropper full twice daily when traveling, during the holidays, or when you're exposed to sick folks.
Don't forget your digestive enzymes (aka Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore).
It's more than just a cravings killing, fiber-full supplement that can keep you regular; it has may more benefits. We all need an extra dose of the life-giving digestive enzymes to break down food into nutrients, and even more so during times of indulgence. If you haven't been taking Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore, you'll want to start... NOW! Taking it with your holiday meals will help you break down fats better, break down carbohydrates, break down simple sugars, and break down proteins, so your body uses them versus storing them as fat to be burned off later (hopefully).
The added bonus is that taking this dynamic duo of digestive enzymes/cravings and hunger killing superhero can also help ease the pain and discomfort caused by the food on your holiday plates, or over-consuming them. This includes relieving gas and bloat, reducing feelings of over-doing it, and helping to eliminate constipation and gas.
It's recommended to take two (up to 150 lbs. or 3-4 if you're over 150 pounds) before large meals, or as soon as you remember for best results.
Of course, exercising in addition to supplementing, is the turbocharging device that makes supplementing even more effective, while also boosting mood and reducing stress.
Here are fast and easy exercise tips to get through the holidays healthy:
- Stay active. Walk for at least 30 minutes daily. You can break your walks up into 5-10 minute walks if needed. Walk your dog or walk around your house... BUT WALK! It's important for everyone for physical and mental health, and it also boosts immune function!
- Lift weights for 5 minutes daily. The Fit in 5-minute workouts can be done daily, or you can do all of them, three times per week. They will reduce stress, increase immune function, and boost your calorie burn for up to 24 hours post-workout. They also tighten arms, flatten abs, and lean out your legs.
Of course, all of this is contingent on getting enough sleep. Take (1-2) LynFit Lean Sleep, or if you're like me and need a little more help thanks to menopause, combine it with LynFit Daily Wellness Liquid Drops, and in 1-2-3 you'll be asleep and wake up feeling refreshed and forget what was bothering you.
No matter what your travel schedule or holiday party plans are, prioritizing good sleep will increase your chances of staying well and having a happier, healthier holiday season. Aim for a 10 p.m. bedtime to guarantee that you will get maximum restorative sleep (happens between 10 p.m.-2 a.m.) and 8 hours per night is a must!
