Moringa has been shown to provide an excellent remedy for hangover symptoms. It alleviates headaches, supports healthy brain function, and helps soothe an unsettled stomach. Quite simply, Moringa perks you up by restoring the body’s supply of vital vitamins and nutrients, which will be badly depleted after ‘the night before’.
‘Tis the season for Moringa tea infusions
Woo-hoo! It’s that time of year when the holiday season will soon be upon us! Who isn’t already counting down the days until we can get into the full swing of Christmas? With festive fun brewing and a time for much merrymaking, you may want to think ahead about just how you’ll cope with all that Chrimbo spirit.
From formal and elegant adults-only gatherings to fun family-friendly bashes, thrown at home or work, a Christmas knees-up can result in that inevitable hangover after one or two festive tipples too many.
What’s going on with a hangover?
Hangover symptoms are unpleasant and may last for up to 24 hours depending on such factors as the amount of alcohol consumed, metabolism, physique, and alcohol tolerance.
They usually take full effect the morningafter a night of excessive drinking and feature dehydration, nausea, headache, dizziness, and abdominal pain.
You may also wake up feeling irritable and sluggish, as alcohol is a depressant. Significantly, drinking a lot of alcohol over the course of just a few days can cause fat to accumulate in the liver which means that the organ cannot work properly.
Although it’s difficult to avoid having a few extra drinks during celebrations, we should all be aware of the effect that alcohol has on our bodies. Alcohol is a diuretic, which causes dehydration and that splitting headache, while a low blood sugar level (hypoglycaemia) is the reason you’re feeling queasy or drowsy. Last but not least, excessive drinking prevents important amino acids from being absorbed into your system which will affect your mental alertness.
Moringa – a miraculous cure for a hangover
Moringa Oleifera will take the edge off a hangover by replenishing lost antioxidants, minerals (iron, zinc, potassium, sodium etc.), amino acids, and vitamins (A, C, D, E, K and B compounds). All of these are essential for enabling the body’s absorption of alcohol and eliminating toxins. The nutrient-rich leaves of the Moringa tree can also increase metabolism and boost the immune system, aiding the sobering-up process. What’s more, Moringa Oleifera powder has been shown to start working as little as an hour, bringing rapid relief for those hangover symptoms and reducing their toll on your health.
