Christmas is upon us and with it comes the festive party season!


There’s a whole raft of reasons for nights out with family, colleagues and friends and of course New Year’s Eve is looming,

Endless late nights, missed meals, mulled wine and canapés can be hard work on the body. Here are five ways to guarantee a healthy festive season:

A Glass of Sparkling Water

Water – When you are out alternate each drink with a glass of sparkling water. Ask for a slice of lemon or grapefruit to jazz up your glass and if it can be served in a wine glass even better, we guarantee you won’t even notice you are not drinking.

Dance the Night Away

Dance – It’s not easy to hold a drink and dance at the same time. Getting your groove on can stop the cycle of drink after drink and can help burn off those canapés you had earlier. Just be sure to grab a glass of water to rehydrate every now and again.

Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle – Don’t let a great night out lead to a rotten morning. Try a centuries old tradition with Milk Thistle. We recommend Milk Thistle from Irish Botanica, an Irish brand based in Co. Wicklow. This milk thistle tincture is organic and is the perfect size to keep in your handbag or at your desk.

Nutritious Breakfast

Breakfast – If you didn’t get to eat well the day before, don’t beat yourself up about it, make up for it the next day instead with a wholesome nutritious breakfast.

Try poached eggs on wholemeal toast, with sautéed onions spinach and a touch of hollandaise sauce, the perfect start to the day.

Irish Botanica Echinacea.

Echinacea – Even with the best intentions the party season can be hard work on the immune system. If you feel yourself coming down with a cold, attack is the best form of defence. We recommend Irish Botanica Echinacea.

It is a traditional herbal medicine to relieve common cold and flu like symptoms. You’ll be back partying in no time.
