We’ve all been there. When you feel like nothing can save you, there are a few things that actually can. Here are Dr. Egler’s top tips to help you get over your hangover.
The mistake people make when hungover is to turn to carbs, but to really get your body detoxing, your blood sugar balanced, and your metabolism revved, stick to protein and healthy fat.
A very important and often neglected part of detoxification called phase 2 liver detoxification, requires amino acids to work properly. Amino acids are protein molecules, found in protein foods such as eggs, beans, meat, fish, or easiest of all – a protein shake using the Parsley Health Rebuild Protein .
Take B vitamins
Methylated-B-vitamins jump-start your liver into propelling all of that acetaldehyde, the toxic metabolite of alcohol, out of your system, through phase 1 liver detoxification.
The Parsley Health Rebuild shake contains them, but you can also give your liver extra love by taking a high-quality multi-vitamin and mineral called Phyto-multi.
Get a MASSAGE
During a hangover, your body is full of toxins, and your liver, the organ responsible for breaking them down, just can’t keep up. A massage will help your lymphatic system clear your blood of all the toxins and is a great way to let go passively, which is often exactly what’s needed when you’re overburdened with toxins.
The best part? It’s completely natural. No need to take drugs, which can thin the blood and tax your already overloaded liver.
