Detoxifying Herbs for over-indulging Christmas parties :)

Holiday season is always the time we all feel like to surrender to the sweets attack. We can’t really resist it and after all, it is that time of the year to indulge a little (or a lot :)) at dinner table or dinner parties.

Drinking and overeating may leave us feeling a bit, let’s say….uncomfortable the day after. Our digestive system mostly pays the consequences and herbs may offer a little help to restore good functioning and maybe also to faster recover from an hangover.

Herbs like Ginger, Turmeric, and Milk Thistle may ease the symptoms and speed up liver recovery.

It is also important to remember to drink plenty of water to counteract the effects of dehydration and that Vitamin C helps boosting immune functions so it strengthens the body. In particular, remembering to drink plenty of water along with our drinks may help to prevent strong hangover symptoms caused by the dehydrating effects of alcohol.

Just a quick look at these useful herbs:

Ginger: Eases nausea and vomiting

Turmeric: Powerful antioxidant, enhances liver function, aid detoxification, and protects liver against damage from toxins.

Milk Thistle: Protects against liver damage and it is antioxidant.
