BOOST: Santa's little helpers

Author -  Vicki Philbey

Ever wished that you had energy like Santa to get everything on your list done in just one night?

Well, unfortunately there’s no magic pill for that. But at Healtheries, we have just the pick-me-ups you need to help you through the very busy Christmas period.

Why are B Complex Vitamins important? 

Some of the best nutrients when you’re tired, very busy, or both, are the B-complex vitamins. B vitamins are important for many functions in your body.

  • B1 (Thiamine) helps your body to metabolise carbohydrates, and maintains healthy nerves, mood and heart function.
  • B2 (Riboflavin) supports red blood cell formation, and assists in metabolising fat, protein and carbohydrates.
  • B3 (Nicotinamide) helps to support healthy skin and mood, and may assist with sleep problems.
  • B5 (Pantothenic Acid) helps to maintain a healthy Central Nervous System, assists with energy production, and supports your body during stress.
  • B6 (Pyridoxine) is an important contributor to many enzyme functions. It assists in the process of forming red blood cells, proteins and neurotransmitters (brain chemicals); and helps to maintain a healthy mood.
  • B12 (Cyanocobalamin) helps to maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells.
  • Biotin supports nail and hair health.
  • They are water soluble which means that they are easily lost by the body (through urine). They are also used more quickly during times of stress and over-indulgence. High alcohol intake and poor diet also deplete them more quickly.

Boost® Revive

Up too late last night? Finding it hard to get out of bed? Boost Revive has B-complex vitamins that will support your energy levels. Vitamin C is in there too, it is an antioxidant and supports a healthy immune system.

Boost® Energy

Mid afternoon in the summer heat may find you sluggish and falling asleep at your desk. Yet you still have after-work functions, social gatherings, or shopping to do. Boost Energy has the B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C to support your energy levels. Plus, it also has the added benefit of Guarana, which is a natural source of caffeine.

Give your energy levels a Healtheries Boost®

As the names suggest, these products really do give you a boost when you’re flagging and still have 101 things left to do . The handy containers mean they’re easy to pop into your purse or top drawer at work. That way you always have a quick burst of vitamins available at any time to give you a lift. This is so much healthier than reaching for coffee or a sweet hit. A short term action from which you can slump even further once the ‘lift’ you get from them has gone.

Boost® Revive and Boost® Energy are a short term fix. They provide a lift to help you through the slumps. For longer-term energy support, a Men’s Multi or Woman’s Multi provides a balance of vitamins and minerals to ensure you’re meeting your daily needs. Healtheries Multi-Vitamins also have ginseng for stamina, immune support and to help your body cope with stress.

Probiotica P3

It’s not just our energy levels that can suffer over Christmas. The holidays are a time when we traditionally indulge. Alcohol and sugary drinks can cause an imbalance in gut bacteria, which can allow the “bad” organisms such as Candida to flourish. Plus, most of us eat rich foods at Christmas, which can play havoc with our digestive systems.

Probiotica P3 helps your body cope with dietary changes of all those Christmas treats. It helps to replenish your natural gut bacteria, which supports your digestive system health.
