How To Get Rid Of Alcohol Using Nutritional Remedies?



Q.  How To Get Rid Of Alcohol Using Nutritional Remedies?

A  The main thing is to reduce alcohol cravings. There are nutritional remedies that help you get rid of alcohol. There’s a Chinese herb called kudzu root that appears to reduce dependency on alcohol[1]. Its Chinese  nickname translates as ‘drunkenness dispeller‘.

In a seven-week trial, 64 per cent of participants taking the root claimed to be drinking less and having fewer cravings; they also said they had more energy and were more alert. Your will also need to keep your sugar levels balanced throughout the day, another excellent way of reducing cravings. That means eating little and often. A nutrient that is particularly useful, both for stabilizing blood sugar and healing the gut, which gets damaged by alcohol, is glutamine, which provides the brain with fuel[2].

Take 3g three times a day.

Since alcohol depletes just about every known nutrient, it’s well worth suggesting you go on a comprehensive daily supplement program, including a high strength multivitamin, an antioxidant complex, 2g of vitamin C and some essential omega-3 and 6 oils.
