When the holidays come around we know it means celebrations, home cooked meals, presents, yummy treats, our loved ones, and our favourite traditions.
But for many of us, it also means bloating and having to unbutton our pants at the dinner table....
Not this year though! Today we are arming you with the details you need to enjoy this holiday season while still feeling your best.
The key to avoiding any holiday disasters is to be prepared. This is especially important if you are not in control of the food you are eating and if you have any particular food intolerances.
Many times we may encounter ingredients that we don't agree with and this can quickly move our evening to the bathroom. But it doesn't have to!
Whenever you are eating out or might be overindulging be sure to bring any supporting supplements that will help you to avoid digestive discomfort.
Enzymedica Digest Gold
It's not called Digest Gold for no reason! This enzyme formulation is the Ferrari of the enzyme world assisting in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber.
Digest Gold was formulated to help you break down your food properly while assisting in the digestive process, which can result in reduced inflammation but also a boost in energy levels.
Enzymedica Dairy Assist
Did Aunt Sue sneak some milk into dessert? Not to worry!
Dairy Assist helps to support dairy intolerance, providing you with the enzymes lactase and protease to help break down the sugar lactose and proteins found in dairy, which can cause digestive problems and unwanted symptoms for many.
Carry Dairy Assist with you wherever you go to make sure you can avoid any discomfort and not miss out! Can't tolerate dairy at all? Check out our favourite dairy alternatives.
Bring back up
Whether you ate something you shouldn't have or indulged a little more than you intended to, either way you will need some TLC!
All you need to do is pop some into your back pocket or purse and you can rest assured there won't be any disasters. After all the holiday season is meant to be enjoyed right?
Enzymedica Acid Soothe
We all know the feeling of eating with our eyes instead of our stomach! Thanksgiving turkey coma anyone? When we eat more than our digestive system can handle at once this can bring about symptoms like acid reflux.
Instead of ending up on the couch for the rest of the night you can supplement with Enzymedica's natural acid soother. Acid Soothe works to ease digestive distress by providing enzymes to help support optimal digestion. Zinc carnosine and marshmallow root are included to soothe and strengthen the mucosal lining while acting as a buffer to gastric acid.
Feeling run down and phlegmy? MucoStop specifically targets buildup in the sinus and naval cavities by helping the body break down excess mucus so you can breathe better, without the drowsiness.
Mucolase, one of the enzymes in MucoStop , is a proteolytic enzyme (breaks down protein) that has mucolytic properties, meaning it targets and hydrolyzes inappropriate or excess mucus while reducing the effects of histamine induced inflammation.
Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology means that the enzymes found in MucoStop will work throughout the entire pH spectrum found in your body.
This formula also includes amylase and protease enzymes to help break down everything else that comes along with occasional and seasonal congestion, so you don't have to sit out on the festivities!
