In my 20's and 30's, I resorted to taking Ibuprofen every time I suffered from a hangover with a pulsating headache.
Cheap and effective, but despite working with the team that discovered this anti-inflammatory I was oblivious to the potential damage this drug was doing to my gut and cardiovascular health.
As an anti-inflammatory, Ibuprofen is very effective, but its side effects include increasing cardiovascular risks and damaging the protective lining of the gut! Plus it is only effective for up to 6 hours.
I then discovered that Turmeric, at the correct strength, has multiple anti-inflammatory benefits, works just as well as Ibuprofen or aspirin and actually improves gut health.
The issue as it happens is our body's slow capacity to excrete the toxic alcohol metabolites from our body.
However, scientific research (ref 1,2,3) has proven that curcuminoinds, the active compounds in Turmeric, are effective at removing both the cause and symptoms of a hangover.
Curcuminoids are also potent antioxidants. Alcohol consumption can cause oxidative stress that damages your cells, so an effective antioxidant is vital during a night of drinking.
So the perfect natural solutions for hangovers are taken BEFORE you go to sleep:
Natruflex Turmeric - 1-2 capsules taken BEFORE you go to sleep and as and when required during the next day
Gut Love - 21 probiotics and 2 organic prebiotics. 1 capsule daily to settle the digestion and improve the excretion
Saffrosun Calm - 1 capsule at night for nerve and muscle function
