CG Christmas Hangover Essentials

It’s Christmas – a time to eat, drink and be merry! Whatever your plans might be to indulge this season, know you can eat cake and party hard with the right natural hangover ‘cure’ & prevention!

As well as a good lie-in, a hearty breakfast and plenty of water, try these hangover essentials to ensure a speedy recovery from the night before…

Gut Cleanse Tea

Snuggle up and sip on CG’s Gut-Cleanse Tea. The perfect combination of herbs to flush that hangover out of your system. The dandelion1https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9498421/ will support your liver to detox any excess alcohol and nasties; the burdock will protect your liver2https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12218354/ from these toxins as well as detox the blood and support the lymph drainage3https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29154814/. Finally, the yellow dock4https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20623623/ will help remedy any damage caused with a good boost of antioxidants.

Ashwagandha

Do you suffer from Hangxiety (hangover anxiety)? Statistics5https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6832275/ show that around a quarter of us do! So if you wake up with that morning-after-dread, an unsettled feeling, unable to sleep or simply anxious, a good dose of our Ashwagandha may do you right! This herb reduces6https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6979308/ the rise in alcohol-induced cortisol7https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6761819/ (stress hormone), which can leave us feeling anxious and stressed. It is also known as an adaptogenic sleep herb due to its ability to help maintain a calm state – so we can easily move from awake to sleeping8https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6827862/. Ashwagandha can also be used as a preventative and a reparative, so consider including this herb into your daily routine a few weeks before the party season to ensure you bounce back calm and refreshed.

Probiotic Kefir

What about something for that sugar crash? Sugar feeds the bad gut bacteria, which can lead to overgrowth and imbalance in our gut microbiome (dysbiosis). Symptoms of gut dysbiosis include low energy, brain fog, constipation, diarrhoea and/or bloating. If you’ve been overindulging on carbs and cakes this season, introducing a good quality probiotic will help combat those hangover symptoms by rebalancing the gut bacteria, reducing sugar cravings and clearing up any of those digestive issues!

The beneficial bacteeria in our Kefir not only combat a sugar hangover but have also been shown to work against the negative impacts of alcohol by decreasing ethanol toxicity9https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8228388/ and brain fog10https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8228388/ associated with a hangover.

Don’t let hangovers ruin your Christmas this season; be prepared and ready to enjoy yourself with Chuckling Goat Christmas Hangover Essentials💃🥳
