With the warm weather right around the corner, this means that patios and roof tops will soon be opening.  Like most people I enjoy drinking a cold beverage outside and look forward to those patios and roof tops opening so we can get some Vitamin D and have some fun with our friends.

Unfortunately now that I’m getting older, the day after having a few drinks on the patio can make me consider never doing it again.  If you know the internal dialogue I’m writing about then the information below will help you speed up detoxing quicker so that we can get back to feeling normal a lot faster.  

Having an understanding of what alcohol does to the body can help us take actions to prevent the effects that make us want to stay in bed all day and never go out again.  When you drink alcohol all the metabolic processes in your body are put on hold until the the alcohol is metabolized.  The liver is responsible for metabolizing alcohol but this causes oxidative stress.  There are ways to help speed up the detoxing process.  Curcumin, green tea, and milk thistle have all been shown to help stop the negative effects of alcohol and help eliminate it.  

Curcumin is a found in turmeric and multiple studies have shown that is can be helpful in protecting the liver from alcohol.  The same is true for green tea.  Studies have shown that green tea protects the liver and can accelerate the detoxification process.  Green tea helps the inflammation response caused by alcohol and can assist in faster elimination of the inflammatory response.

A few more commonly know whats to accelerate the detox process from alcohol are:

Drinks lots of water with electrolytes before and after drinking alcohol.  This helps keep the body hydrated and counter act the dehydrating effects of alcohol consumption.  Continue to train hard in the gym.  Studies show that athletes excrete more toxins in their urine than people who lead a more sedentary lifestyle.  

Most of us enjoy getting together with friends and spending time outside in the sun.  If you choose to drink make sure you have the above remedies handy so that you can get back to feeling normal faster.
