Tips for the Christmas season!

One wet kiss too many – How can I prevent infections at Christmas?

To prevent an infection during the Christmas season, we recommend, among other things, taking zinc and vitamin C. Both have an antioxidant effect and support the immune system in the fight against free radicals, which are at the beginning of every disease.

Zinc is a building block or activator of more than 200 enzymes, including enzymes that are part of the immune system and protect cell membranes from free radicals.

If zinc is missing, immune system actions and healing processes can be slow, so a zinc deficiency should be avoided.

■ Cell renewal: The trace element zinc converts proteins from food into the body's own protein
■ Blood sugar regulation: Zinc is also part of the insulin regulation of the pancreas
■ Vitamin C is added: it is considered a cofactor for zinc and increases its effectiveness.

Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins for our health. It not only strengthens the immune system and protects against colds, but also makes you more resistant to stress.

Protects against cell aging: Vitamin C helps protect cells from oxidative stress
Fit through everyday life: Vitamin C helps reduce tiredness and fatigue
Strengthening the immune system: Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system during and after intensive physical activity

Another home remedy that you should definitely have at home now is:


Ginger is an exceptional medicinal plant that relieves pain and inflammation. It is also antibacterial and can protect against infections. The healing root warms from within, promotes blood circulation and thereby strengthens the immune system.

Colds are easier in winter than in summer. On the one hand, the dry air weakens our body's external defense systems (dry mucous membranes) and on the other hand, the cold has a negative effect on blood circulation.

You can chew a thumb-sized piece of ginger with pleasure, add it to tea or over your food, or use it to make a foot bath. For the foot bath, take 70 grams of the fresh, thinly sliced ​​root and place it in your bath water.

Hauling Christmas presents and a Christmas tree – first aid for tension and stress?

In the cold season we are more often tense and stressed. We see less daylight, take relaxing trips into nature less often and the cold causes our muscles to contract.

We can warmly recommend our magnesium oil from HS Activa to you. Apply the muscle-relaxing magnesium to the painful area in the morning and evening and leave it to work for a few minutes.

Highly energized water with 31% magnesium chloride
■ Magnesium is better absorbed through the skin than through the intestines

In combination with magnesium oil, soothing heat can also work wonders. Place a heat plaster from the pharmacy or a cherry stone pillow on the tense area and enjoy.

Most of the time we no longer notice how much we tense up and cramp up in everyday life. In a moment of calm that you can actively take (it's all a question of priority), you can practice a short meditation or a stretching session. It's often the little moments that give us a lot of quality of life.

Here's some inspiration for a short 15 minute stretching break with Mady Morrison:

Paulina Thurm's House of Peace, for example, offers particularly beautiful meditations for every situation in life: (many episodes are also available free of charge on iTunes or Spotify)

Christmas dinner – what to do if you have heartburn, bloating and constipation?

There's a lot to eat before, on and after Christmas ;-)

And most of the time these include cookies, fatty and heavy meals and alcohol. You shouldn't do without it under any circumstances, but you have to be able to live with the consequences. And they are often unpleasant in nature.

Heartburn, flatulence and constipation can quickly spoil the beautiful atmosphere at the Christmas party or under the Christmas tree.

For quick help with heartburn, we recommend our Basicum . It contains high-quality 99.99% sodium bicarbonate and is ideal for balancing the acid-base balance and reducing the acid load in the entire organism.

■ Regulates the pH value: a glass of water with half a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate can stimulate digestion
■ Helps with heartburn and prevents kidney stones
■ Helps with bladder infections and sore muscles

If you are constipated, you can dissolve some of our magnesium chloride powder in water and drink it, as it relaxes the intestinal muscles and can therefore have a slight laxative effect.

■ Perfect for anyone who wants to support their immune system and improve their mood (especially in winter).
■ Additional ingredient: Vitamin K2 improves the absorption of vitamin D3!
■ High dose: 10,000 or 30,000 IU per capsule!

Apart from Basicum and magnesium chloride, if you have gastrointestinal problems, we recommend that you drink a lot, get some exercise in the fresh air or do small abdominal massages. This gets your digestion going and relaxes you.

Of course, it also makes sense not to always eat up to your absolute capacity limit, but to stop at an enjoyable 80% satiety. This simple trick relieves the burden on the digestive system and you don't have to go without anything.

If you tend to get bloated after eating, you can pick up a packet of fennel seeds from the spice aisle when you're Christmas shopping. Put 1 teaspoon of these fennel seeds in your mouth and chew well. The seeds have a relaxing effect on the digestive system and allow unpleasant gases to escape quickly.

We hope that our tips will make your Christmas season even more pleasant. Have fun trying it out!
