How to thrive, not just survive, this most “wonderful time of the year”

Thanksgiving and the winter holidays bring the seasonal beauty of nature, creative offerings from friends, festive celebrations and the comfort of family.

A Delicious way to RESTORE VITALITY

Ready for a rescue from exhaustion, blue moods, and weight gain – especially during this holiday season?

Chronic stress leads to burnout of the adrenal glands for up to 86% of women. My go-to rescue with a holiday twist? Licorice root. Its active compound, glycyrrhetic acid, is an anti-stress tonic that helps heal overworked adrenals to keep you energized and upbeat throughout the busy holiday season. What’s more, German scientists say eating real licorice also stamps down sugar cravings.

The recommended dose of a licorice standardized extract (containing 20% glycyrrhizic acid) is 250 to 300 mg three times a day. If you decide to eat licorice on its own, enjoy 6 pieces of licorice with no added sugar (look for a brand like ZRT).

Keep calm and fortify your system against holiday stress with Magnesium

I’m a big believer that everyone should supplement with high-quality magnesium. And for good reason. A recent study from the National Institutes of Health suggests nearly 8 in 10 Americans don’t get enough magnesium. As the natural calming mineral, magnesium is a must-have during the holiday season to help you stay cool, calm and collected to handle any stress that comes your way. Magnesium is also required to breakdown sugar – for every molecule of sugar you eat, it takes up to 56 molecules of magnesium. If you’re overindulging during the holidays, that means magnesium is even more essential.

Of the many, many magnesium supplements on the market, Mag-Key gets my vote because it’s the only one I’ve seen that includes four UNIQUE forms of magnesium – malate, orotate, glycinate and taurinate!
