Liver is a very important organ in your body. It performs many functions including digestion, metabolism and energy production, storage of essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, proteins production, support the immune system and detoxification. Medical science recognizes approximately 500 liver functions. Liver removes toxins from the blood and prevents their accumulation. Without this function, the human body would die from poisoning.
Alcohol used by humans since the dawn of civilization is often misunderstood and unnecessarily villainized. Critics of alcohol as well as proponents, both often forget that alcohol was used as a medicine, delivery system for herbal medicines, an antimicrobial substance and natural preservative. It also has an important social function as it helps people relax and increases sociability in shy people. Just as any medicine alcohol can be harmful.
Many consumers drink in social circumstances trying to relax, and don't have time to think about all the pros and cons of alcohol use. On the downside often people do not want to face the facts, that alcohol causes change in normal body functioning, can be addictive as most recreational drugs and causes liver damage. All these factors are the bottom of the iceberg, the noticeable tip of this iceberg are hangovers. It is often recommended to people to consume alcoholic beverages "in moderation." However, "the moderation" is a very relative when it comes to something as complex as a human body. The stigma of moderation can also be daunting and psychologically counterproductive to what alcohol is meant to do: relax and promote sociability. It is hard to decide how much is okay to drink and not be a radical.
The “moderation” objectively depends on your body, to be more precise on your liver. As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the importance of liver cannot be understated. If you never had signs of a hangover in your entire life, then you are blessed with a strong liver and it handles the detoxification function very well. However, if you ever experienced a hangover, it means that alcohol effects your liver seriously enough for it not to be able to do its detoxification work properly. Moreover, if you had hangovers but then they went away, then it could mean that you developed tolerance for alcohol, which simply means that you could be several steps away from addiction. Again speaking of the liver detox function, the question is what to do to make sure that detoxification does not go into overdrive mode and does not takeaway from all the other vital functions in your body.
One thing you can do, which is really fascinating is combine alcohol with natural performance enhancers that put you in the driver seat when it comes to alcohol. One such substance is Pürblack Live Resin. It comes from a class of Shilajit. In Eastern European holistic medicine and Ayurveda Shilajit-Moomiyo resins are considered the supreme healing substance. Shilajit resin substantially improves how the body functions, promotes accelerated regeneration of healthy tissue, mitigates stress, stabilizes emotionally and mentally, supports anti-inflammatory and immune functions. Speaking of alcohol consumption, Pürblack Live Resin Shilajit promotes a unique and very healthy body reaction to alcohol. The resin protects the liver in a way, which does not allow it to go into the "overdrive" mode, while detoxing you from alcohol. Interesting enough alcohol seems to improve all the health promoting effects of this natural cure. As a result, hangovers are either greatly diminished or fully eliminated.
As with anything new, the questions are: is it scientific and does it work? The answers are yes and yes. In an in vivo study, research had shown beneficial effects of Shilajit based formulation. You can view the abstract by clicking this link. There is evidence independent from Pürblack, and submitted to the company that verifies beneficial effects when it comes to a healthy body reaction to alcohol.
BEWARE. Do not rush to buy just anything called Shilajit or Moomiyo. Shilajit is historically the most counterfeited supplement in the world. It has to do with a very high demand and a limited supply. Most imitation products come overwhelmingly from India, Bhutan, Nepal and Pakistan. Because it is very hard for a consumer to distinguish between genuine and counterfeit resins, it is a good idea to purchase only from a reputable American or German brands like Pürblack. It is important that the company you obtain your resin from files all the FDA prior notices and features comprehensive lab reports on the substance. If you are using a genuine resin, it is a great tool to protect the liver from harmful effects of alcohol and support health and well-being on a daily basis.
