Natural Hangover Cures
Not only is the festive season a time to get together and eat well, it is also the time of year we are most likely to over-indulge, and we can end up feeling the effects of too much alcohol or rich food. Nature has many herbal helpers to cast off the lethargy, headaches or at worst nausea and get our system back on the road.
A green smoothie made with Barleygrass powder can give the body a kick into cleansing out all the heavy stagnant energy associated with rich foods, and provide some extra vitamins, minerals and enzymes to boost wellbeing.
A long hot bath with a hint of grapefruit essential oil can be a great way to revive the morning after the night before, as Grapefruit gives the liver a nudge and clears a foggy mind.
The herb Milk-Thistle has a long history of traditional use as a tonic to the liver and can also be taken daily to protect the liver from toxins connected with imbibing a little too much merriment!
In Ayurvedic Medicine Turmeric is the master healer, and is known to boost the immune system, sooth the liver, fend off infections and be a salve for the throat and digestive system.
At Indigo Herbs we have one particular product range we would recommend taking daily during this time. That's our Love your Liver herbs and superfoods powder blends. These formulas were carefully created by nutritionist David Ash with a mind to protect the Liver and fortify the daily diet.
They each contain the classic liver herbs Milk thistle and Turmeric and proanthocyanidin flavanoids occuring in Grape seed extract and Vitamin C. Proanthocyanidin flavanoids are anti-oxident phyto-chemicals with beneficial properties. This synergy is enhanced by Barleygrass, Chlorella and Banana powders.
These blends contains a dense form of daily super nutrition with special emphasis on detoxifying and supporting the function of the liver. The basic mix contains only 100% natural herbs and superfoods and suits a more gentle constitution, the fortified mix has added micro-nutrients for a super dense source of targeted nutrition. Both blends give the body just what it needs to counteract over indulgence, boost the immune system and support optimum health and wellbeing.
