We’re here to inspire you with some ingredient ideas to get your customers up and moving before the year’s end. Including the following three nutrients in your next private label product could be exactly what people need to power up for 2020!
Did Somebody Say 'Christmas Shopping'?
When it comes time for the shopping shenanigans to ensue, be it for Christmas, Hanukkah, or whichever gift-giving holiday your customers celebrate, they’re going to need a little help to keep them on the go. An herb that grows in particularly cold, mountainous regions, rhodiola rosea has been used as an adaptogen for centuries to enhance the body’s ability to cope with stress. Studies have determined that it can in fact boost physical performance while easing mental fatigue. With some rhodiola in their routine your customers will be jingling all the way.
Among the many beneficial B vitamins, vitamin B12 specifically helps convert the food we eat int energy for cell use. Since it’s found in a range of animal proteins such as fish, dairy and meat products, vegans and vegetarians are at risk of deficiencies. That’s where you come in! To keep those who follow restrictive diets healthy, your supplemental vitamin B12 can provide the nourishment needed to prevent a type of anemia that can cause lethargy and weakness. Who wants that when they have a trillion things to do and Christmas is just days away?!
Hosting the holidays can require some brain work—from budgeting to figuring out the most cost-efficient way to pull off a perfect party. If only there were a cognition-enhancing ingredient… oh wait, there is! Tyrosine is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the body. Found in most high-protein foods such as dairy products, chicken and eggs, tyrosine is vital to the production of neurotransmitters, or chemicals that transmit messages in the brain. These neurotransmitters are believed to decline with both physically and mentally challenging activities, which can negatively impact concentration and energy levels. Stringing up the lights, paying a credit card bill, and for some, the entire holiday experience can be a demanding task. Let’s get to work on a supplement that benefits people who have low stores of neurotransmitters due to stressful times. Tyrosine is a proven safe supplement that can help keep your customers alert and ready to take on tomorrow.
Valerian Root to the Rescue
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all were asleep… except you because you’re worried about hosting for the first time, 30+ people no less. Are all the gifts wrapped? Did I forget anyone? What if the meal flops? Spare your customers the anxiety leading up to the big day with none other than valerian root. Often found in sleep-promoting tea, this supplement is effective on its own. Similar to the way magnesium works, valerian root increases the amount of GABA in the brain, modulating nerve cell functions and calming the nerves. Valerian root also supports sleep quality with little drowsiness, making it the perfect supplement post-holiday. Your customers deserve a break this holiday season, and Makers Nutrition is here to help you make it happen.
