We all know that feeling — too much food, too much sugar, too much alcohol — leaving us heavy, bloated, irritable and sometimes, achy. The holiday season is typically, an overindulgence season, and while everyone can take precautions to minimize the effects of “too much” on our systems, rest assured that there are great products on the market if it’s already too late.
Here are our top four tricks to remedy overindulgence:
1. Iberogast – This is one of the best products on the market for that bloated, irritated stomach feeling. Ibreogast helps peristalsis – the movement of the stomach – so that food can be better digested , and it also has a soothing action on the stomach lining.
2. Legalon – Legalon is a very high-quality version of St Mary’s Thistle, which is a liver tonic. Legalon supports the liver so it can better detoxify your body from overindulgence of sugar and alcohol and food that bear toxic overload on your digestive tract.
3. Ultra Flora – Alchohol and sugar disrupt good gut bacteria, so when we overindulge on these things, our digestion becomes very compromised, adding to that sick, bloated feeling. Ultra Flora is a very high quality probiotic supplement, restoring the good bacteria in your gut to help support digestion.
4. Endura – Alcohol is very dehydrating for the body, meaning it causes fluid and electrolytes to be excreted from the body. Endura is one of the best products on the markets to rehydrate your body and replace lost minerals, nutrients and electrolytes, leaving you feeling much better much quicker.
As always, we never recommend self-prescription, and always recommend professional guidance to ensure safety and dosage are correct for you. There are also individualised herbal combinations we mix up for more specific digestive weaknesses which are aggravated during periods of overindulgence. Call us on 3369 0045 to see how we can help.
