OTC Pain Medicine for Hangovers?

Yup, hangovers still suck. So here are some more tips, as promised…

(Click here to skip ahead and get the FREE SAMPLE…)

What is the #1 thing you NEVER take before, during or after drinking?

It’s called Acetaminophen (aka Tylenol)

Why not? Because it alone can damage your liver. Add a healthy portion of alcohol and you’re really asking for trouble.

Now, don’t feel bad if you’ve done this before. Your liver is a tough lil sum’bitch. It takes a hell of a lot to really damage the little guy, especially if you follow all of my tips!

The toxins from Acetaminophen stress your liver kind of like Acetaldehyde from alcohol. Only it’s WAY easier to overdose on Tylenol. That’s why, sadly, some people attempt suicide by taking a ton of it. Big downer, I know.

The good news is that if they catch it in time, they can rush you to the hospital and save your life. How do they do this?

First, they pump your stomach to get all the poison in there out. Your body does this too with alcohol. It’s called VOMITING!

An IV of Glutathione (the antidote to liver toxins) prevents liver failure by helping the little guy eliminate the toxins faster. Before they can kill you.

Now, go back to alcohol. The tips you have so far help you increase Glutathione, slow down toxin absorption and eliminate Acetaldehyde faster. Got it?

Next question – Why do OTC anti-inflammatory meds help with hangovers? (They really do, not denying that). That's why a product like Blowfish for Hangovers can help you feel better the morning after drinking; it's basically just effervescent aspirin and caffeine.

These things are helpful because alcohol causes inflammation. Most disease, immune dysfunction and injury involves inflammation. It’s the natural healing response and it causes PAIN. That’s why they are called pain-killers and/or anti-inflammatories.

Here are a few tips…

3 Tips for Hangover Inflammation

  1. No Acetaminophen!

  2. Before bed?

Many people claim they prevent hangovers by taking NSAIDS (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) before bed. I have to admit, it has proven effective for me. These include things like Aleve, Advil or Aspirin. However, they do nothing to protect your liver (unlike Glutathione and Japanese Raisin), and can add to the toxic overload. And they are not right for everyone, so check with your physician. Make sure to take with plenty of water and a small snack. Without food in your stomach they can cause internal bleeding.

  1. Natural options

Keep in mind that many of the previous tips and Super Foods naturally decrease inflammation. In addition, there are herbs like ginger, turmeric, boswellia and others that have powerful drug-like effects, without the adverse reactions. I really like Vida Life Sciences exoFlex product. No, they are not paying me, but it works well for me. (Hint: other supplements can really help too)

Bet you guessed that I was about to talk about Intox-Detox now. Our main ingredient, the Super Food Japanese Raisin extract, contains antioxidants called polyphenols that help with inflammation. It also contains a couple other key supplements that really help in many ways. (More on that coming)

That’s it for now. Next time I’ll give you an essential list of supplements for the social drinker who hates hangovers, which obviously includes Intox-Detox!
