Holiday Survival Supplement Guide: Happy Thanksgiving!


It’s that special time of year again when you get to spend ‘quality time’ with your family and friends. Just the thought of this special time of year and I start ordering my personal supply of supplements that help me survive the holidays. Below, I’ve outlined a few of my favorite formulas that help support healthy cortisol levels (anticipation of passive-aggressive comments from the mother-in-law), keep you relaxed (even if the stuffing catches on fire in the oven), supports healthy liver function (not sure I really need to elaborate on this one), relax sore muscles (for our favorite weekend warriors), and supports satiety and glucose metabolism (so you don’t become a stuffed turkey).**

Holiday Survival Guide to Formulas


I have used this formula off and on for the past few years and love it. I find that I’m able to handle stress better and when family comes over, it makes me less reactive to any little complaint or judgement tossed my way. I like to take two capsules every morning.**

  • Helps the Body Cope with the Physiological Effects of Stress*
  • Supports Healthy Cortisol Levels*
  • Supports Relaxation and Restful Sleep*
  • Promotes Mental Clarity*
  • Helps Alleviate Occasional Fatigue*

AdreCalm™ helps your body resist and recover from the effects of everyday stress. Components of this multifunctional formula have been shown to support healthy cortisol levels, help alleviate occasional fatigue, promote mental clarity, and support relaxation and restful sleep.*


I have used this formula many times in the past with great success! I like to mix one scoop of unflavored RestorAid™ in 2-3 oz of water about 20 minutes before company starts coming over. Three years ago, as I was brining our turkey, the turkey’s wings poked holes in the brine bag which led to brine gushing all over the counter, floor, and me. The next couple seconds are still a blur but the turkey did end up on the floor. RestorAid™ helped me remain calm and may have saved our Thanksgiving.**

  • Supports Relaxed Mood*
  • Supports Inhibitory Neurotransmitter and Second Messenger Functions*
  • Supports Neurotransmitter Balance and Neuronal Stabilization*
  • May Support Blood Pressure Already Within Normal Range*
  • Addresses Brain Osmotic Regulation, Glial Cell Function, and Effective Neuronal Transmission*

RestorAid™ is an innovative powdered drink mix without flavoring components. It contains a blend of ingredients that supports the body’s natural synthesis of catecholamines, the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, hormonal balance, and healthy glucose metabolism. RestorAid™ aims to promote a calm, relaxed, well-balanced emotional and physiological state.*


It’s the holidays and adult beverages are usually on the menu. EnviroBasic™ is a great formula to help support healthy liver function. Cheers!** †

  • Supports Healthy Liver Function*
  • Supports Cytokine Balance*
  • Supports Glutathione Production*
  • May Protect Liver Tissue*

EnviroBasic™ contains the amino acid N-acetyl-L-cysteine, a key component of glutathione—a tripeptide that plays a significant role in detoxification and antioxidant support. Liver Protect also contains a combination of alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin from milk thistle, and selenium for support of antioxidant activity, regeneration of other antioxidants, and promotion of healthy immune function.*

C-Lean Fiber™

I like to take two capsules of this formula with a large glass of water about 15 minutes before the appetizers are served. Before dinner is served or around the time I remove my gorgeous golden turkey from the oven to rest, I take another two capsules and a large glass of water. C-Lean Fiber™ helps me to control portions and not overindulge to the point where I’m miserable (I’m sure you’ve been there too).**

  • Supports Satiety*
  • Supports Weight Control*
  • Supports Glucose Metabolism*
  • Supports Cholesterol Metabolism*
  • Supports Healthy Bowel Movements*
  • Serves as a Prebiotic for Intestinal Bacteria*

C-Lean Fiber™ features Shimizu Propol® A propolmannan—a highly pure, natural soluble fiber. Propol A is created from Amorphophallus konjac-derived glucomannan using proprietary processing techniques. This fiber has been studied for its viscosity and for its stability through the digestive tract; and studies support its health effects, such as on satiety, weight control, glucose and lipid metabolism, and bowel regularity.*
