Zen Out

In a world that's SO OBSESSED with productivity, we often forget that in order to achieve, we must make time for REST.

If you are...

feeling overworked & stressed
struggling with muscle pain, soreness, & spasms
burning the midnight oil at your computer for the sake of #productivity
having a hard time sleeping because your circadian rhythms are off...

Supplements for Recovery

Are soreness & fatigue holding you back? At the start of a new year, physical fitness is often top of mind for many people. But what happens when we think we've fallen short on our resolutions or goals?

We beat ourselves up, assuming it’s a lack of willpower or commitment. But what if it’s not? What if it's because we're unknowingly not fueling our bodies with the nutrients it needs to recover & heal?

Read on to learn about our favorite supps to aid in recovery, from soreness to sleep to your mood!

This time of year, many of us are eating foods that aren't a part of our normal routine. If you notice that certain foods are making you bloat, here are some things to think about:

-Slowwww down! Many times if we just take deep breaths before eating and chew thoroughly, that can reduce or eliminate bloating!
-Bloating after a meal can be a sign of low stomach acid, improper pancreatic function, or even a food intolerance. ⠀
-If meat or high protein meals make you bloated - low stomach acid/ zinc deficiency are likely the culprits! Taking ACV or digestive bitters before a meal can help stimulate stomach acid, and limit liquids at meal time.
-If gluten and dairy are the issues, it could be a food intolerance or a leaky gut. You can experiment with an elimination diet, and focus on gut healing foods like bone broth, ginger, turmeric, and L-glutamine. ⠀

If you're wanting some extra support this week while you're enjoying holiday treats, consider taking Digestive Enzymes to help your body break down the food better and reduce bloating!

Sound familiar? Your adrenals could use some extra love!
Adequate nutrients and stress management are vital to support healthy adrenals. Getting enough minerals and nutrients throughout your day (especially vitamin C, B vitamins and magnesium) and adding in adaptogens and other botanicals like passionflower, chamomile, and relora can help support adrenal health. ⁠Making sure you are taking time to fill your cup is crucial - write a poem, learn to play an instrument, walk in the woods, legs up the wall, taking time to play everyday, whatever feeds your soul. ⁠⠀
If you are curious what adrenal support supplements are right for you, our Custom Consults can help tailor a supplement protocol based on your needs!

Do probiotics make you bloat?

What many people don't know is that a probiotic maintains a healthy gut, versus healing an unhealthy gut.

So, if you notice that a probiotic doesn't work well for you or it makes you bloat, it’s likely an indicator that you need to first heal your gut & then add in your probiotic. One key way to do this is start with digestive enzymes. Click here for more of our other top healing tips!

Blood Sugar Dysregulation

This is a classic sign of low blood sugar! Adequate digestive/liver function and adrenal support play a huge role in blood sugar regulation. Here are some tips that can help if this is you:

1. Slow down during meals so you can properly digest what you eat. Digestion starts in the brain, so sit down and chew your meals thoroughly. ⁠⠀
2. Eat enough balanced meals with adequate protein fats and whole food carbs sources will give you the nutrients to keep your liver functioning properly. ⁠⠀
3. Adrenals also play a key role, and in times of stress they can work overtime. Allowing yourself proper rest and nutrients is key. ⁠⠀
If you feel like you need some macro guidance and the right support for your, our Norma's are amazing at creating custom protocols to help you take your health back into your own hands!
