Supplements: "A Super Pill Defence?"
As we ramp up our social activities for the festivities ahead starting with Thanksgiving, Halloween, peaking over the Holidays and ending with New Years celebrations, there are many rich foods, alcoholic beverages and late nights that can take their toll on our bodies. Many of us stress about entertaining, money, family, not having enough time in the day or the calendar to do it all; add in not getting enough rest, drinking enough water or eating nutritious meals and you realize it can compromise even the toughest immune system.
Time for a Rescue Strategy.
Along with good lifestyle habits, Massage therapy and Chiropractic care, good quality supplements* may really act like a magic super pill, when taken as directed. Factors like weight, age, food sensitivities, over indulgence and stress can create a weakened environment that precipitate unwelcome and uncomfortable side effects like gas, bloating, pain and inflammation that can impair a healthy immune system. Here are some of our fave "Super Stars" to buddy-up with in the upcoming season:
break down foods (protein and fats) into nutrients that our body can absorb and use as fuel. Think about all the parties, restaurants and heavy meals over the next month or so, digestive enzymes can be your
favourite "plus 1."
: busy "good guy" organisms that keep our gut flora healthy and balanced, limiting the growth of the toxic organisms that may cause gas, bloating and even diarrhea. It's like having your
very own "body guards!"
Vitamin C and Bioflavinoids:
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural defenses, Bioflavinoids (derived from plant compounds) act like a super protective antioxidant boost against
that are responsible for destroying cells and contribute to aging and illness.
We also have a few choice products that provide a calming influence, giving you the temporary relief you need to
handle stress more effectively.
Ask your health care practitioner what is right for you.
