As we head into the darker winter months, it’s natural to experience the winter blues. Dr. Edelberg reminds us that as the light changes on these shorter days, our bodies adjust by producing less feel-good serotonin. And while it’s best to raise serotonin levels with exercise, sunlight (or a full spectrum light), and complex carbohydrates such as veggies and whole grains with each meal, we often reach instead for one food to power us through the holiday season: sugar.
The supply of endless sweets from late October until January 1 is no accident. We’re looking for a quick fix to help us adjust to the changing light and sugar works…for a very short time. Sadly, many of us end up on the sugar roller coaster of highs and lows and some find it difficult to get off.
Here’s a way out. This month we’re offering a special discount on our UltraMeal Plus 360. It’s a shake that provides Insinase and plant sterols, a new herbal blend designed to keep blood sugar on an even keel and support cardiovascular health. It comes in vanilla, strawberry, and (my favorite) chocolate. It’s now available at 15% off.
Enjoy these winter months with a healthier daily snack in UltraMeal Plus 360 and, of course, the occasional hot chocolate while cuddling under a warm blanket.
