Tips / Travel

Traveling exposes your body (and mind) to new environments, new food and new routines. Before you go, prepare yourself by taking extra supplements to ensure a healthy, happy vacation.

 

No one wants to catch a cold on vacation. While there is no proven way to ward off a cold, immunity-boosting supplements such as echinacea or vitamin C can’t hurt. Look for all-natural supplements with the least amount of fillers or additives.

 

Travel can also upset your digestive balance; supplement with a probiotic one to two weeks before your scheduled departure date. These supplements are full of beneficial, gut-friendly bacteria but can take a little getting used to; mild side-effects include gas and bloating.

 

Consult a travel doctor if your trip takes you abroad to a new country or for an extended period of time. Travel specialists will ensure you’re up-to-date with your vaccines and can recommend medicines and supplements specific to your destination.

 

As with any supplement plan, it’s best to consult a physician before making drastic changes to your diet — this is especially true if you take prescription medications or have underlying health conditions. Safe and healthy travels!

Seasonal Winter Beverages

Solomon Burke sings there is nothing sadder than a glass of wine alone, which is why two glasses are always recommended. It is cold outside and so the season to burrow and get cozy by the fire has begun. With all this talk of wine, you might think only the finest bottle can be enjoyed, but rest assured even when your bottle of red has been open for two days, this is the season for salvaging joy. Pour that slightly off bottle into a pot, add a little brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, cloves and half an orange. Heat it up to a simmer for 10 minutes or so and then strain into mugs. You will have yourself some tasty mulled wine in no time.
