BUMP UP THE B VITAMINS BEFORE AND AFTER DRINKING
B vitamins are necessary for the proper breakdown and elimination of alcohol in the body. Alcohol affects your body’s vital energy. It’s helpful to take a B-complex supplement before drinking for hangover prevention, as well as when you come home, or first thing the next day to replenish lost B’s from over indulging.
LIVER LOVING MILK THISTLE TO THE RESCUE
The breakdown of alcohol in the liver results in the generation of free radicals and toxic compounds, including acetaldehyde, a metabolic by-product of alcohol responsible for many of the symptoms of a hangover. In the liver, glutathione, a protein with antioxidant activity, aids in the detoxification and removal of harmful toxins, including acetaldehyde.
Milk Thistle increases glutathione levels in the body. Many clinical studies have shown its ability as an antioxidant to protect and regenerate liver cells, even after alcohol intake.
