This Christmas, give the gift of wellbeing! It can be easy to fall into bad habits over the festive period, most commonly by overindulging in various activities whilst getting into the Christmas spirit! Whilst it’s okay to enjoy yourself, overindulgence in fatty foods and alcohol can actually spoil your enjoyment of the season – especially if you spend the entirety of January trying to undo the impact.
This year, give yourself the gift of wellbeing, we’ve got everything you need to support you.
Watch Your Digestion
The Christmas period is often a time for multiple heavy meals with rich foods that can be challenging to break down. Digestive Enzymes can be a massive help when it comes to your festive wellbeing. Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes contain seven different enzymes which match those inside our digestive systems, helping to break down key nutrients. Each of the different enzymes focuses on a specific nutrient type such as protein, fats, and carbs.
Digestive enzymes can also be useful and provide support & relief for people who suffer from digestion issues such as gas, bloating, and IBS. With regular consumption of heavy meals over the festive period, these issues can be more common, so digestive enzymes can help provide some much-needed relief.
Maintain Good Gut Health
Keeping on top of your gut health is always important for your wellbeing, and it’s important to not let this slip over the Christmas period. Probiotics are the healthy bacteria that live in your gut and are essential for the body to function properly.
Overindulgence over the Christmas period can leave your gut unbalanced with unhealthy levels of bacteria, so it’s important you maintain the good bacteria in your gut to ensure normal function of your body. Many people turn to probiotic supplements, which can help to counteract any disruption to your digestive system. Udo’s Choice have a range of probiotics, with different probiotics being designed for different ages – so there are options for the whole family. One of the most popular Udo’s Choice probiotics supplements is the Super 8 Gold Microbiotics, which is ideal for the days leading up to Christmas and the days after.
Get Off to the Right Start
If you know you are likely to be indulging in social activities, heavy meals, and alcohol consumption, it’s a good idea you start the day off with a healthy breakfast to fill you up with goodness for the day ahead. A good smoothie containing Udo’s Choice Beyond Greens is a perfect choice, especially if you are in a rush with a busy schedule coming up!
Beyond Greens are an ideal choice for the breakfast because of the wide range of goodness they contain. They are an organic source of the most complete nutrition: protein, enzymes, vitamins & essential fatty acids. The Greens themselves are made up of alfalfa, barley, wheat, rye and oat grass powders, spirulina, dulse, chlorella, plus broccoli and kale. Beyond Greens are incredibly versatile, so can be used as part of a smoothie, added to baking or simply mixed with a glass of water.
Whilst Christmas is a time for giving to others, remember to be kind to yourself and give yourself the gift of wellbeing. Have fun and enjoy the festive season, but take care of yourself at the same time and you’ll likely have an even better Christmas.
