3 Must-Have Supplements to Feast Easy for the Holidays

Whether it’s big turkey dinners with the family, leftover Halloween candy, fast-food runs during hectic gift-shopping trips, or comfort food after a stressful day with crazy in-laws, our digestive systems get quite a workout when the holidays are in full swing.

To help your body handle your holiday menu, we’re here with three essential supplements that will get your inner-foodie ready for the festivities.

Digestive Enzymes &‌ Probiotics

When it comes to gut health, digestive enzymes and probiotics are so good for you that they practically deserve a Christmas card.

In a recent post about digestive health, we mentioned that some of the most common of foods can be the hardest to digest. Everything from fried, spicy, and processed foods to certain fruits, veggies, snacks, and desserts can give your gut a run for its money – and we’re not just talking food comas, either.

Stomach troubles such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, lethargy, and poor nutrient absorption can be quite common when eating those foods.

So, just imagine how much tougher it is when traditional holiday foods are involved!

By taking digestive enzymes with probiotics before those big holiday dinners, you’ll have less gas, bloating, constipation, and stomach discomfort thanks to the enzymes’ ability to break down hard-to-digest foods with ease. Meanwhile, probiotics support your overall gut microbiome, as well as immune function.

Green Tea Extract

Many health-conscious people swear by green tea extract supplements for their powerful antioxidant support that aids skin, immune, and heart health.

But, did you know that green tea extract is also great for your metabolism?

Green tea extract contains a rich source of EGCG, which is a catechin that has been proven to increase metabolic function. This is especially helpful for those of us that avoid stepping on the scale when the holiday feasting catches up.

Plus, green tea extract also bolsters thermogenesis, which is the body’s way of burning calories to digest your food better, while also providing a gentle boost of jitter-free energy to help you snap out of your food coma and stay sharp.

We recommend green tea supplements over traditional tea for optimal uptake. To learn more, check out our post that reveals the six proven benefits of green tea!

5-HTP

With family flying in, huge dinners to prep, holiday parties to attend, and Black Friday chaos, let’s just say the “most wonderful time of the year” is also the most stressful time of the year.

Problem is, stress does a number on our digestive function.

When stress gets the best of us, our digestive systems can’t absorb nutrients as well as usual, which can lead to poor sleep, fatigue, diarrhea, indigestion, and reduced appetite. But thankfully, 5-HTP‌ is a great way to keep stress at bay.

5-HTP is a naturally-occurring amino acid that the body utilizes to produce serotonin to improve your mood, stress levels, and sleep quality. As a result, the stress reduction will help your digestive system absorb nutrients properly.

Less stress and optimal digestion sounds like a win-win to us! If you agree, be sure to include 5-HTP in your holiday health regimen.

We hope these recommendations will give your gut the advantage it needs for the holidays. As always, if you have any questions or comments for us, feel free to leave a comment below. Or, you can reach out to us directly at (800) 940-1972 or via email at Support@ZenwiseHealth.com.
