When heading out to party this weekend – consider taking a few supplements along with you to ease the suffering later in the evening and the next morning:

 

Our Staff Fav is Party Smart by Himalaya.  All of us who like to enjoy a drink or two have tried it (including at our staff Christmas Party) and we LOVE it!  All you need is 1 – 2 pills during your festivities and you wake up feeling great!  If you’re a smaller person (150lb or less) one pill is typically enough, however if you’re a bit larger, or you’re really enjoying your drinks – another pill at bedtime helps!

Party Smart is a blend of herbs that cause the by-product of alcohol metabolism to be easily flushed by the body, thus avoiding the awful hang over symptoms we’re all trying to avoid at this time of year!  Perfectly safe and fine to take along with any medications.  Plus – it’s totally affordable!  Pop in a grab one for New Year’s – we’re open until 6:30 New Year’s Eve this year.

 

Digestive Enzymes are another life saver – none of us leave the house without them!  If you plan on over indulging a basic digestive enzyme will help your body break down all that extra food!  If you are vegetarian, there are enzyme specifically for you, too.  If you are gluten intolerant – and you can’t be sure of the foods you’re going to be eating at a party GlutenEase is a staff favourite.  And if you’re lactose intolerant, and you’re not positive what’s in that baked good, Lactase is a life saver!

Digestive enzymes help prevent bloating, discomfort, gas, and that awful heavy exhausted feeling you get from eating too much.  They’re lifesavers at a party!

 

Probiotics are a great way to help digestion along as well – make sure you take a double dose at bedtime to prevent constipation and support strong digestion overnight (and even help with nausea if you’ve drunk a little too much!)

 

Magnesium is a great hangover cure too!  Lisa always takes 2 New Roots Herbal Magnesium Bisglycinate pills before bed after drinking to prevent that awful pulsing headache that goes along with hang overs!

 

Be safe everyone and have a Happy New Year!!!

Party Survival – Avoid the Bloat!

Is your stomach bloated?

Have you noticed that certain foods make your stomach feel bloated to the point that you feel like it might… explode?

Feeling bloated and uncomfortable at any time of the day or night is unpleasant. There are simple rules you can follow to reduce internal bloating.

Practical advice

  • Savour each mouthful! Try to chew each mouthful 20 times. This may seem zealous, but chewing triggers the production of digestive juices in the s tomach, facilitating digestion. Therefore, chewing more means less gas!
  • Separate solid foods from liquids! Ideally, you should only drink a small glass of liquid with your meal. Some people take a gulp of water to swallow their mouthful of food instead of adequately chewing it. After drinking, wait 10 to 20 minutes before eating, and after a meal, wa it 20 to 40 minutes before drinking again.
  • Take the time to sit down to eat! Take a deep breath before sitting down at the table to eat and try to relax when you eat instead of eating on the go. Most importantly, avoid eating while you work.
  • Vary your lunch choices! If you are prone to bloating, here is what you should avoid: sandwich + soft drink + coffee. Bread tends to promote bloating in people with a sensitive stomach, so, for a change, try a soup meal with rice cakes or raw vegetables with cheese.
  • Forget wheat for a few days! Do the test to see the difference. Try eating cereal other than wheat for breakfast such as oats, puffed rice, or millet or corn flakes. If pasta is a must, try spelt pasta, as it is easier to digest.
  • No more soft drinks! The gassy effect is definitely not advisable.
  • Eat cooked foods! If you have a sensitive stomach, choose cooked, hot foods over cold and raw foods, as they are easier to digest and are less likely to cause bloating. For ins tance, have vegetable soup instead of a cold salad.
  • Do not keep fruits for last! Finishing off your lunch with a fruit-flavoured yogurt or fresh fruit may seem like a healthy choice, but for many people, this is the cause of a stomach ache in the afternoon. Ideally, eat your fruit at breakfast or as a snack in the afternoon, long after you’ve had lunch.
  • Keep a good posture! Many people who bend over their plate as they eat later suffer from acid reflux and belching. Food will make its way to the digestive tract much more easily if your head is high and your shoulders are back.

Need an extra boost?

Try Molkosan! Molkosan is whey concentrate  that is rich in L-lactic acid. It is a source of calcium and potassium and promotes a healthy intestinal flora and gives the digestive tract a boost. It can be taken twice a day mixed in with water or juice.

5 tips to help your hangover

by Sonia Chartier, on 1 December 2014, Healthy Eating

hangover

As much of a disappointment to drinkers as this may be, a hair of the dog only delays the inevitable.

One of the reasons you’ll feel ill after drinking is because your liver is still processing the toxins left over from alcohol metabolism. While drinking more might seem to lessen the symptoms initially, you’ll be making yourself feel much worse later on.

Foods to help…

  • Bananas: Bananas are an excellent hangover cure because they restore electrolytes lost after a heavy night of drinking and replenish the potassium your body lost to the diuretic effect of alcohol. They are also packed full of natural sugars, giving you energy, and are a natural antacid which means they can help fight nausea.
  • Light breakfast: A light breakfast may help combat hangover sickness and fatigue. Try a poached egg on a slice of whole grain bread. Eggs contain the amino acid cysteine which can aid the breaking down of the toxin that causes hangover symptoms, acetaldehyde, and grains in the bread contain magnesium which alcohol can deplete.
  • High fat foods: Eating fatty foods the morning of your hangover is sure to upset your stomach further, but eating high fat foods before drinking can help prevent a hangover because it lines the stomach and intestines and slows the absorption of alcohol into the blood stream. A healthier approach is by eating foods such as salmon, avocado and olive oil.
  • Water: One of the simplest things you can ingest to help ease a hangover is water! It helps rehydrate your poor beleaguered tissues and really speeds up recovery. If you can get some down your throat before you go to bed then it’ll magically reduce your suffering. And again on getting up. Just do it!
  • Vitamin B and C: If you’ve got lots of parties lined up, take a vitamin B complex as well as vitamin C whenever you’re out drinking and the next day, as both these vital nutrients are depleted by alcohol. Vitamin B rich foods are fish, wholegrain cereals, green vegetables, nuts and avocados. Vitamin C rich foods are fresh fruit and berries, green veg, parsley and watercress.

P.S. Remember to have your Milk Thistle ready?
