While the holiday season brings excitement and joy, don’t forget to pamper your well-being along the way! Amidst the joyous hustle and bustle, it’s easy to overlook self-care. We’ve compiled some of our favorite health tips for navigating the holiday season with grace and well-being. Here’s how to keep your holiday spirit high while safeguarding your health:
Energy Enhancer: NAD+
If you follow our blog and social media, you know we’ve gushed about NAD+. Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is a critical cofactor for multiple biological processes, including maintaining cellular energy and DNA repair. “I love doing NAD+ drips for a big energy boost before holiday shopping and will get you through the holiday party circuit,” says Sydney McClelland, B12 LOVE Marketing Manager. (Available as an IV drip or IM injection).
Daily Immune Support
A blend of herbs known for their antimicrobial and immune-enhancing support, ImmunoTone capsules should be a part of everyone’s at-home winter wellness routine. Walnut Creek’s Jessica says, “I take ImmunoTone daily for immune support. I also buy it for my family for Christmas too!”
Whether you’re soothing a sore throat or trying to prevent one, Licensed Naturopathic Doctor and B12 LOVE Founder/CEO Dr. Shannon-Wood Gallegos recommends “anything with mushrooms.” Specifically, Dr. Shannon suggests using the MycoShield Throat Spray several times daily. “It’s great for acute and ongoing maintenance.” (Available at all B12 LOVE Lounges).
If a stuffy nose and cough are what ails you, Novato’s Nurse Claire recommends KuffSoothe wellness syrup. KuffSoothe is a natural honey mixture blended with herbs that supports healthy mucus production and respiratory function.
The Mill Valley team adores the Kick Butt Immune IV Drip for staying healthy and hydrated during the holidays. “The KBI is my go-to holiday travel prep,” says Dr. Ashika, ND. “I love our Kick Butt Immune IV for being such a nutrient-dense and well-rounded bag. You get great immune support from vitamin C, B-complex, lysine, and zinc, but also great energy from vitamin B12, B5, and Taurine. What’s not to love about that?!” If you don’t have time for a full IV drip, pop into any B12 LOVE location for a Mini Fountain of Immunity injection!)
Staying Youthful Through the Yuletide
The Napa team relies on their monthly Mini Fountain of Youth IV drip (with a Glutathione add-on) for vibrancy and vitality all year.
For at-home skin nourishing, Dr. Kieu, ND, loves the SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore Cream for that inevitable “extreme skin dryness we all experience as our heaters turn on.”
Stress Management Must Haves
B12 LOVE Novato’s Tina sends stress hormones sailing with Coconut Soak Himalayan bath crystals. “It’s the perfect holiday gift for loved ones and yourself.” (Available at all B12 LOVE Lounges)
If you want next-level stress reduction, get the Ultimate Chillax IV drip. With the calming benefit of 800 mg of Magnesium and tons of nerve-soothing nutrients and hydration, you’ll feel frazzle-free and fabulous.
Don’t Forget to Detox
Dr. Claire Graser, ND, regularly educates clients about the therapeutic benefits of Glutathione. “Replenishing your body’s often very depleted supply of this master antioxidant is key to helping the liver process and eliminate toxins,” Dr. Graser says. B12 LOVE offers Glutathione as an IM injection and IV drip.
For an added layer of protection at home, you can take liposomal Glutathione or try our staff and client fave Youngr supplements – a precursor to Glutathione. Now available in a 3-Pack!
