Five Essential Supplements For The Holiday Season
No matter how much we make our health and fitness a priority, the one time of the year that we can probably all agree we don't feel our absolute best is during the holiday season. Spending time with our families we usually don't see, eating delicious home-cooked meals we only get to enjoy once a year and making lasting memories are what the holidays are all about. However, this time of year can cause a few missed workouts, less fruits and vegetables consumed, more bloating, and overall not feeling our best physically! We want to help you combat those feelings this holiday season by setting you up for success with our favorite supplements to get those important nutrients in, feel less lethargic, and aid in digesting all that delicious food!
Your digestion could probably use a little extra boost over the upcoming holiday season. Our Strong Greens is a nutrient dense powerhouse that supports improved digestion, boosts your immune system, reduces stomach bloating and increases natural energy. We consider Strong Greens® a "nutrient powerhouse" because it is packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and supports gut health.
2. Strong Reds
Strong Reds is our superfood reds powder that helps fill the gaps in your diet while improving your digestion and nutrient absorption. This formula is packed with essential vitamins, antioxidants and digestive enzymes to boost natural energy and protect your immune system. In addition to taking Strong Greens, we also recommend drinking one serving of Strong Reds a day!
Strong Multivitamin is formulated to optimize your body by fueling it with its required vitamins and minerals. Our Strong Multivitamin is created with Bacognize® which supports cognitive health, memory, focus, attention, mood, emotional health, and stress. Chromax® which supports cognitive function, weight management, food cravings, and healthy glucose metabolism. Finally, AuroraBlue® which has the richest natural profile of nutrients derived from the genus Vaccinium of any berry complex on the market.
In-Focus is a great option to have on hand for those days you are feeling extra lethargic from the inevitable #FoodComa. It is a great alternative to energy drinks and will keep you SHARP during those in-depth conversations with your extended family members. In-Focus supports an increase in mental focus and delays mental fatigue. It is an excellent source of energy to be used in the morning after a late night out, before an afternoon social event or to be dialed in for a those family gatherings. AlphaSize®, an ingredient in In-Focus, is considered to be one of the most effective brain nutrients in the world, and is used widely in clinical settings around the world involving memory. NeuroFactor™ can stimulate a key neuroprotein, called BDNF, involved in overall brain health that is vital to learning, memory and higher thinking. In-Focus will keep you on your A-game at any and every social gathering and holiday party.
We specifically recommend our Vegan protein powder to help maintain your #gains through the holiday season because of the added digestive enzymes. Our vegan protein powder is comprised of pea protein, watermelon seed and pumpkin seed protein powder. In addition to high-quality protein sources, we added DigeZyme® Multi-Enzyme Complex to help break down the food you are consuming and improve your nutrient absorption. Many people think that a plant based protein powder, like our vegan protein powder, is only for individuals who follow a vegan style diet, however this is not always the case! Vegan protein powder is also a great alternative for people who have issues digesting whey protein powder. If you have an intolerance to milk or milk based products, like whey protein powder, then a vegan protein powder can be a great alternative for you!
For us health and fitness is a lifestyle, so making sure we are enjoying life in between chasing after our goals is very important. We work hard, but we also play hard! Setting up a plan going into fun and memorable occasions revolved around food and family can allow us to be more present and live in the moment rather than be worried about losing all of our progress or feeling lousy. We hope these tips will help you to plan ahead and feel your best going into this holiday season!
