Your hangover says hello with tiredness, nausea and headaches. Often, you waste the day after due to severe dehydration and loss of other important nutrients such as vitamins, zinc and magnesium.
In addition to dehydration, there are various processes that take place within your body to get alcohol out of your system. Your liver already begins to break down the toxins it has absorbed whilst you are drinking. The body’s own enzymes ADH and ALDH produce the toxic compound acetaldehyde. Your liver has a lot of work to convert the released acetaldehyde into harmless acetic acid – which makes you feel weakened.

Kudzu is a legume from Asia, also called Kudzu bean or Kopou root. The root is contained in our DRINK RECOVERY offering a dietary supplement for weaning off smoking and alcohol.
Translated from Chinese, Kudzu means “means to eliminate drunkenness”. In China, herbal tea from Kudzu is used to sober up and treat hangover symptoms.
Kudzu is rich in isoflavones, which are considered antioxidants and help to reduce the damage caused by alcohol.
Furthermore, Kudzu contains saponosides preventing cell damage and protecting the liver (source: Wang, F., Li, Y., Zhang, Y. J., Zhou, Y., Li, S., & Li, H. B. (2016).

Milk thistle has been used as a herbal medicine since ancient times. The composite flower occurs particularly in West Asia, North Africa and Southern Europe.
Over the past 40 years the effect of milk thistle has been investigated in numerous clinical studies and is now scientifically proven. The milk thistle fruits are used as herbal medicines which contain 1.5 to 3% silymarin and can thus protect the liver from harmful influences. Consequently, Silymarin is used for treatment of liver damage caused by alcohol. Laboratory tests have shown that silymarin has a stabilising effect on the outer shell of liver cells, making it more difficult for toxic substances to penetrate into the cells. Moreover, it is understood that Silymarin has a regenerative effect on the liver.
In addition, Silymarin increases protein formation and therefore stimulates the formation of new liver cells while promoting the repair of damaged liver tissue.

Cactus fig, prickly pear or Nopal is a plant from Mexico, known for its versatile benefits: Increased well-being, the vitalisation of many bodily functions and the strengthening of the immune system.
The fruit furthermore reduces the appearance of inflammation-promoting proteins. Some hangover symptoms are attributed to inflammation within the body. A study from 2004 reveals that cactus fig extract can reduce the symptoms of a hangover by up to a half. Additionally, Nopal has a high fibre content, meaning that digestion, which is often impaired by alcohol consumption, is also positively influenced.
