Some people put a lot of thought into the gifts they give their loved ones during the holidays. And while it’s the thought that counts, receiving a gift that is useful and promotes a healthy body and well-being is a huge bonus. That’s why vitamins and supplements make the best holiday gifts!
The options are almost endless when it comes to supplements. Figuring out what products will provide the most benefits for your gift recipient isn’t the easiest task. For that reason, we’re giving you our best vitamins and supplements to give as holiday gifts.
Most people could benefit from more or better-quality sleep. Almost half of Americans say they feel sleepy during the day.[i] A good night’s sleep helps your brain and body function optimally. Despite the benefits, sleep tends to be one area that takes a backseat. To improve your sleep quality, start by developing healthy sleep habits and hygiene. Set up your environment for sleep, avoid screens or caffeine before bed, and create a routine. Once you have the basics, incorporate a sleep support supplement like Melatonin.
Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that is found in your eyes, bone marrow and gut, it lets you know when it’s time to relax. Your body produces melatonin naturally, but a supplement can help kick it into high gear. Ensuring a good night’s rest is vital to your overall health, and Melatonin has been widely used for its sleep supportive properties. NutraMedix’s Melatonin drops are easily absorbed and make for an effortless sleep support supplement.
Cold and flu season can wreak havoc on your household and put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable time. Taking steps to support the health of your immune system is essential to keep up with your daily routine. Just about anyone could benefit from supplements that support the immune system like Quercetin and Samento.
Quercetin supplements are derived from flavonoid, a plant pigment present in sophora japonica or Japanese pagoda tree. Quercetin benefits include immune system support and Vitamin C and Zinc absorption. Though individual ability to absorb quercetin supplements may vary based on factors that are both genetic and related to the gut microbiome, the dihydrate form in NutraMedix’s Quercetin supplement is generally considered highly bioavailable, making it one of the best quercetin supplements on the market.
Samento is recognized for promoting a balanced immune system. While Samento is often known as Cat’s Claw, NutraMedix Samento liquid supplement does not contain the tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (TOAs) that are found in other traditional Cat's Claw health supplements. In short, our liquid supplement samento formula is great as immune system support.
Antioxidant and Brain Support
Ever feel like your brain isn’t working as proficiently as it had when you were younger? You’re not imagining it. Cognition changes with normal aging. However, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can help delay the onset of cognitive decline.[ii]
Fortunately, there are supplements that support the brain and a healthy body like Burbur Pinella. While Pinella offers brain and nerve support, Burbur is used for its powerful detoxing properties. Combined into a liquid supplement form. In Nutramedix’s Burbur Pinella detox supplement, these two herbs can eliminate toxins and offer detoxing properties for a full body cleanse and reset, from head to toe. Our burbur pinella mix therefore makes for a great brain health supplement and helps with occasional brain fog.
Metabolic Support and Energy Metabolism
Finally, your body works hard every day to keep you moving and healthy. Dandelion and Methyl are supplements that support metabolic processes and energy metabolism.
Used for centuries in traditional health practices, dandelion leaf may help with comprehensive health maintenance, including liver support, metabolic support, antioxidant support, and healthy inflammatory response support. It may also help with microbial support and mood support.
Using active forms of essential vitamins may help maintain healthy methylation, which is crucial to many body processes. Our unique formula of Methyl Complete contains vitamin B2, vitamin B6 in its active form pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (P5P), vitamin B12 in its active form methylcobalamin, and folate in its active form calcium-L- methylfolate, in addition to creatine monohydrate for supporting energy metabolism and betaine anhydrous (sometimes known as trimethylglycine) for further methylation support.
You have the right idea in your quest to support your loved one's healthy body and mind. Finding the right supplements to do so is the next step in curating the perfect gift. You can’t go wrong gifting any of the supplements discussed here this holiday season.
