TOP 10 SUPPLEMENTS FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON
There is no magic formula to help you make the most of your holiday season, the heavy meals, the binges and the tasty desserts without impacting your overall health, BUT!
There are tools to help you stay on track, limit the damage, optimize your digestive and immune health and enjoy the holidays in a calculated way.
Here are our TOP 10 SUPPLEMENTS to keep you on track during the holidays.
Let's start off with a bang in this category, because we want you to be able to enjoy Aunt Nicole's treats and Grandma Denise's desserts without worrying about late night digestive problems!
GLUCO CONTROL - ATP Labs
Have you ever had to force yourself on the fork and end up dozing on the couch? It's perfectly normal. When the volume of food is too large, our body has to produce a large amount of insulin (a hormone related to carbohydrate consumption), which can lower our blood glucose and impact our energy. Our body must metabolize a large amount of food, which greatly taxes our digestive functions. This formula will help you to metabolize your carbohydrates, in other words: a better management of carbohydrates and less storage in adipose form (fat).
To be consumed during the meal to avoid a drop in blood glucose.
ENZYMATIK CONTROL - ATP Labs
A complete digestive enzyme formula that promotes the breakdown of food... so less bloating and flatulence, but especially less regret for having eaten so much! To be consumed during the meal, between two bites.
ELECTROLYTE - ATP Labs
Let's talk about alcohol and binge drinking now! Here is your ally to stay hydrated and/or to compensate for the dehydration due to alcohol during your Brush-off. ATP Labs' formula: Electrolyte XL is composed, as the name suggests, of electrolytes. It contains the minerals necessary for good hydration.
To be taken during the evening and/or the next morning.
PROBIOTICS - PROGRESSIVE
Probiotics are the active bacteria of our digestive health and help maintain it while colonizing it on a regular basis. Progressive's formula: PERFECT PROBIOTIC 30 BILLION would be my formula of choice for the ideal amount of probiotics that your digestive tract is ready for.
ISOGOLD PROTEIN - PVL
Speaking of probiotics, this protein has them! In addition to this great little addition, the protein can be a great addition to your dessert recipes to make your holiday brownies a protein snack.
We shake hands and kiss, and germs spread. Let's protect ourselves by strengthening our immune system. Here are your secret weapons:
GLUTAMINE with VITAMIN C - PVL
This formula lends itself to both digestive health and the immune system. Why? Glutamine is an amino acid that supports digestive health, while Vitamin C helps lower cortisol, optimize recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Mixed in water, use it instead of your morning glass of orange juice for its citrus flavor and get 100x more benefits!
IMMUNO - PROGRESSIVE
This formula combines Vitamin C and Zinc to meet your needs on a regular basis and ensure a stronger immune system. Combined, of course, with a healthy diet, this is a great addition to your supplementation protocol.
Immunity, mood, overall health. Vitamin D is an excellent supplement to start your day and boost your immune system, especially during the winter when the sun is not so much with us! Combined with magnesium, it helps with its absorption.
SLEEP AND RECOVERY
Who says drunken evening says late night sleep, says lack of sleep...
OPTISOM - ATP Labs
To optimize your sleep or get you back into your usual sleep routine, ATP Labs' Optisom formula contains several adaptogens with relaxing properties and melatonin, which greatly helps with sleep rhythm and cycles.
Ideally, it should be taken 30 minutes before bedtime.
Magnesium is one of our favorite minerals because it is probably the one that has the most impact on the body! We are talking about...
- Calming the nervous system
- Reduce cramps and aches
- Helping deep sleep
- Calcium synthesis
- And much more!
Take before bedtime or after exercise.
Make sure you have this solid stack of supplements on hand to enjoy your holiday season and come back strong in January!
