What happens when alcohol enters your system?
- Alcohol enters your bloodstream through your gut.
- The liver then filters the blood and the alcohol is metabolised into smaller components. An important byproduct in this process is Acetaldehyde.
- Acetaldehyde is significantly more toxic for your body than alcohol and is responsible for your headaches, nausea, dizziness, dehydration, fatigue and increased sensitivity to light (Chen et al, 2006).
- In other words, Acetaldehyde is the cause of hangover symptoms and unfortunately our bodies take their time to break down this toxic chemical (Chen et al, 2006).
So what can we do?
Research has shown that DHM (Dihydromyricetin), the active ingredient in Hovenia Dulcis, boosts the ability of enzymes ADH & ALDH to break down both alcohol and Acetaldehyde. DHM can therefore speed up the process with which the liver breaks down the acetaldehyde into smaller compounds such as carbon dioxide and water, which can then be expelled when we breathe, sweat and urinate (Chen et al, 2006).
HangZing harnesses the powers of Hovenia Dulcis, Milk Thistle, Nopal Cactus and Siberian Ginseng, Aloe Vera, Turmeric and Vitamin C that work together to help you recover.
Electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B complex (B1, B3, B6, B5, B12, B9) replenish the minerals and nutrients lost from drinking.
NATURAL SPEEDY RECOVERY.
