Don't Let The Winter Blues Get You Down!
In the cold winter months, are you one of those people who finds themselves feeling down and struggling with low energy? Well you are not alone, that is one of the most common themes we hear from our customers. Unfortunate for us, we cannot just hibernate for the winter like bears do; Life goes on!
So what can we do to help make things a little easier?
In this blog post, we will be sharing our Top 3 Recommendations that help with Seasonal depression, low energy and boosts our overall wellbeing.
#1- Rhodiola : Scientific name is Rhodiola Rosea, it is a herb that grows in mountainous regions. It's roots are considered adaptogens, which is a natural substance that increases your body's resistance to stress.
Rhodiola has been shown to improve symptoms of burnout which can occur with chronic stress. Rhodiola can also help with low energy, and it is suggested to have antidepressant properties by balancing the neuro transmitters in your brain.
There are many different Rhodiola products out there, but one of our favourites is Rhoziva™. Rhoziva is a proprietary herbal blend utilizing the powerful Rhodiola root that has been proven to fight fatigue, promote mental focus and clarity, enhance memory, increase physical endurance during periods of physical exertion and help support physical and mental stamina during times of increased stress. It not only has Rhodiola in it, but a great blend of B vitamins, zinc and magnesium.
#2 - Vitamin D3 : The sunshine vitamin!! Did you know that vitamin D deficiency is one of the leading causes to so many health issues. Since we are not outside as much as our bodies need, and because there are stretches of cloudy days, it is very common for one to become deficient in Vitamin D3.
Some symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency are:
- Fatigue, low energy
- Getting sick often
- Bone and back pain
- Hair loss
- Bone loss
As there are many amazing Vitamin D3 Products on the market, it was hard for us to pick just one, so we went with our top 2:
Prairie Naturals Vitamin D3 is made with cholecalciferol, the most readily absorbed form. Be sure you get enough of this low-cost, highly valuable vitamin. You’ll soon feel the difference that Vitamin D makes to your health and happiness. Each soft gel is in a base of Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil, which means you will get the full benefit from this product!
Second favorite Vitamin D3 based product is: Sunshine in A Bottle from Nu Life!
- Year-Round Formula
- Added Phytonutrients To Help With Mood Support
- Replaces Nutrients Depleted By Lack Of Sunshine
- Fights SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
- Supports Treatment Of Fatigue, Jet-Lag, Insomnia And Shift Work (Sleep-Loss)
This awesome product has Vitamin D3, Rhodiola, 5-HTP, St John's Wort, Omega 3, Ginkgo Biloba along with very some beneficial minerals. You will feel it working within a couple of days, which is why we like it so much!
#3 Adrenal Support : What are the adrenals? The adrenals are two small glands that sit on top of the kidneys and produce several hormones, cortisol being one of the main ones. When under stress, we produce and release short bursts of cortisol into the bloodstream. With cortisol in the bloodstream, it creates the "fight and flight" response. Which can look like:
- Heart rate increasing, leading to anxious feelings
- Anger, frustration, "short fuse"
- Issues with sleep
- Low energy/drive
With all of the things we are faced with in this day and age, supporting our adrenal glands has become so important. With adrenal support, you will have increased energy, less stress, better sleeps, and overall feeling more recharged.
Can Prev's Adrenal-Pro™ is our top recommendation for Adrenal Support. Adrenal-Pro™ is a blend of adaptogenic herbs and nutrients used in herbal medicine, specially formulated to provide an improved sense of well being and help improve mental and physical performance after periods of exertion. These herbs will also help to give the thyroid extra support. Ashwaganda, L-Tyrosine, Schisandra, Siberian Ginseng, Rhodiola, are all blended together to leave you feeling more recharged and happier as a result.
