You’re probably tempted to say “alcohol,” but the truth is more complicated than you think...
This video reveals:
- The truth about what causes a hangover
- How alcohol interacts with your body
- The two key organs we must protect from alcohol
- The all-natural ingredients needed to prepare your body for a night of indulgent celebration!
If we asked you: “What causes a hangover?” Everyone would have the same answer:
So, let’s get a little more specific: “What is it about alcohol that causes a hangover?”
The truth is… we don’t really know!
We all know that one guy who can chug a copious amount of liquor and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy. Some people will even tell you that they’ve never had a hangover!
All we truly understand is how alcohol interacts with our bodies, and vice versa. So, while there’s no fool-proof plan to avoid a hangover (other than, y’know, not drinking) we can offer you information and tips on how to best prepare your body for interacting with alcohol.
In this video, our Master Herbalist Stacey Littlefield will reveal the all-natural ingredients she uses to mitigate the after-effects of a night of celebration.
Without knowing why a hangover occurs, there’s no one sure-fire way to prevent it. However, Stacey has been really successful in using our own Curcumin C3 Reduct®! Here’s why:
- HELPS PREVENT NAUSEA We get nauseous because alcohol irritates the lining of our stomach. Ginger root has long been known for its wonderful capability to settle an upset stomach!
- PROTECTS YOUR LIVER In the far east, turmeric has a long history as a liver protectant. That’s so important, as alcohol places a huge burden on our liver!
- REDUCE PAIN AND INFLAMMATION Who hasn’t woken up feeling sore after a night of mischief? The anti-inflammatory capabilities of curcumin go a long way to help reduce aches and pains!
Of course, this is all irrelevant if you aren’t also following guidelines such as:
- Drinking lots of water to fight dehydration
- Eating before you drink to protect the lining of your stomach
- Eating after you drink to replenish the blood sugar you’ve lost
While everyone loves to celebrate, the best way to stay hangover-free is to avoid overindulging. Simply put, do not consume more alcohol than recommended. Stay safe and sensible. Cheers!
