3 Vitamins For Your New Year Health Kick

Christmas is all about overindulging! The holidays usually involve a lot of food, alcohol, and not a lot of exercise. So when it comes to January most of us feel like we need a bit of a detox! It could be why so many of our new year’s resolutions are about feeling and looking healthier. That’s why we’ve put together a list of our top 5 vitamins that can help to support your new year health kick!

What Is A Detox?

A detox sounds fancier than it really is. In simple terms, a detox involved getting rid of unhealthy things in our body. Our body detoxes naturally everyday, but going on a detox can help to accelerate the process. By avoiding putting unhealthy things into our body, like certain types of food, our body has to get rid of.

But that doesn’t mean you have to go without and starve! It’s all about avoiding bad stuff and replacing it with lots of good stuff! Like greens, vitamins, and antioxidants.

3 Vitamins For A New Year Detox…

Acai Berry – Containing Acai Berry extract from the ‘super food’ berry of the same name, this supplement has greater antioxidant capabilities than dark chocolate and Goji berries. Regular consumption has been seen to increase the antioxidant levels in the blood by two to three times.

Vitamin B complex – This high-strength blend of B vitamins boosts your body’s energy production, cognitive function and supports a healthy immune system. Additionally, B vitamins provide protective antioxidants helpful in the breakdown and removal of toxins.

Vitamin C with bioflavonoids & rosehip – Not only does vitamin C boost immune function, it neutralises intermediate toxins whilst working hand-in-hand with other vitamins to breakdown and remove toxins from the body. Through doing so it is effective in limiting damage to the body from free radicals.

Your New Year Health Kick

You new year health kick shouldn’t just be about detoxing. Other factors you should work on are:

  1. Enhance immune function – A period of excess can negatively impact your immune system. The correct combination of vitamins can give your immune system the boost it needs. Our range of immune boosting vitamins is the perfect choice.
  2. Lose weight – Toxins can be harmful to your wellbeing by increasing the risk of illness and disease and they also negatively impact body weight. They are known to affect the metabolism of fat cells leading to potential weight gain. Using vitamins with antioxidant properties can rid toxins stored within fat cells and kick start your weight loss.
  3. Slow premature ageing – Ageing can occur as a result of damage due to the gradual build-up of normal toxin by-products or inefficient repair over the course of your life. Premature ageing can also occur as a result of the excessive presence of toxins from smoking, alcohol and consumption of processed foods and pollutants. Antioxidants supplements can help keep the presence of toxins under check and reduce the ageing process.
  4. Restore balance to your body – When your body is overloaded with unhealthy food, alcohol and there is a drastic change to our daily routines, the digestive, nervous and hormonal systems don’t work as well. These systems were designed to function effectively together for optimum health and when they don’t illness can occur. Balance your body’s systems with a hit of antioxidants.
