Acetyl L – Cysteine A well known powerful liver detoxifying amino acid. It is used in A&E departments around the world to treat paracetamol overdose. It is theorised that cysteine is used by the liver to produce glutathione, the bodies master-antioxidant.
Reduced L – glutathione As described above, we have also included glutathione in its full form to further add to the antixodiant load. Only a small amount of glutathione (in its full form) is absorbed via the gut which is why we included both to cover all bases.
L- Theanine Found almost exclusively in Tea with high concentrations in green tea. research suggests L-Theanine significantly increases the frequency of brain alpha waves which are associated with a state of wakeful relaxation and calm. It seems to settle “excitable” neurotransmitters while promoting “calming” neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine and GABA.
Taurine One of the most abundant amino acids found in the body and has a vast array of functions, particularly in the brain where it has a neuro-protective role.
Ginger – equivalent to 2700mg (5% Gingerols)
Turmeric – equivalent to 3000mg (95% curcumin)
Gingerol is the active ingredient in ginger and curcumin in Turmeric which mediate their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. These super-foods have been used traditionally for centuries to treat common ailments including joint pain and symptoms of nausea. AfterDrink includes highly concentrated extracts of ginger and turmeric which provide the equivalent to almost 3 grams of each in every 3 capsule serving.
Bioperine® – 5mg (black pepper extract):
It is the general impression that the more nutrients you consume, the more will be absorbed. However this is dependent on the “bioavailability” of that nutrient and how well the cells in our gut are able to absorb them. BioPerine® is a patented “bioavailability enhancer” which has been shown to increase the uptake of curcumin (the active ingredient of turmeric) by 2000%. It also enhances the uptake of CoQ10, Seleium and Vitamin B6 which are all ingredients included in AfterDrink.
Chamomile – equivalent to 750mg (3% Apigenin)
Chamomile is one of the oldest, most widely used and well documented medicinal plants in the world and has been recommended for a variety of healing applications. It is most commonly used to soothe upset stomachs and settle anxious nerves.
Artichoke – 150mg (2.5% Cynarine)
Panax ginseng – equivalent to 750mg (20% Ginsenoside)
Choline – 82.5mg
A thistle-like perennial plant which has been shown to have liver protecting, gall bladder stimulating and cholesterol lowering properties. It is a great antioxidant and included regularly in food supplements which boast liver supporting qualities. These herbs work in synergy with choline to support liver function
Vitamins, Minerals, Alpha Lipoid Acid and Coenzyme Q10
We have included alpha lipoid acid, coQ10 and a specific selection of vitamins and minerals which work in synergy to enhance their antioxidant properties.
Recent research has shown that antioxidants must work together to prevent free radical damage. For example when vitamin E has been neutralised it becomes a very weak version of a free radical itself. However if it is taken in combination with vitamin C, the vitamin C will ‘recycle’ it so that vitamin E becomes an active antioxidant once again. Similarly vitamin C must be recycled by glutathione so the same does not happen to it too. Antioxidants also need other team players in the mineral group such as zinc, chromium, copper and manganese to do their job optimally.
This product does not prevent intoxication or protect against alcohol related damage that may be caused by excessive or long term drinking. AfterDrink is not a Hangover cure. The only way to reliably prevent a hangover is to drink in moderation and within recommended limits. Hangovers are usually caused by drinking too much in a short period of time. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or taking any prescribed medication or have any medical conditions including food allergies, it is best to consult your doctor before taking food supplements.
