Note from the Editor: At SmartyPants, we’re all about upgrading – from making the best possible ingredient choices in our gummies, to making the most out of life by trying new things, or improving on what we already do. So, here's to helping you have happy and healthy New Year's Eve. That's the smarter way to healthier.
The days following New Year’s Eve are some of the healthiest of the year. Everyone is setting goals, hitting the gym and vowing to eat better (for now). But what a difference a day (or eve) makes. A mere 24 hours prior, and cleansing is the farthest thing from most people’s minds – unless you count polishing off that bottle of champagne. But here at SmartyPants, we believe that you can have your party and be healthy too. Or, at least a little more healthy than you were last year
