Over time, excessive consumption of alcohol can be detrimental to health and longevity, as such consumption is stressful to the liver and other organs in the body. Maintaining proper liver function and the function of other detoxifying organs is imperative for eliminating
harmful alcohol metabolites.
Consumption of ethyl alcohol leads to the liver producing large amounts of acetaldehyde and reactive oxygen species (ROS). Due to this altered metabolism, excess amounts of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) plus hydrogen can also be produced, which can result in increased acidity in the body and may contribute to nonalcoholic fatal liver disease (NAFLD), cardiovascular complications, weight gain, and minimally, those symptoms commonly referred to as a “hangover.” The liver is a vital organ involved in removing these alcohol metabolites from the body. Its primary job is to filter the blood coming from the gastrointestinal tract before passing the blood to the rest of the body. Not only does the liver inactivate and remove toxins that are ingested, but it extracts residues and metabolic waste material from the blood so that these toxins can be excreted by the intestines or kidneys. It is essential to provide the liver with the necessary nutrients to support this metabolism.
Research has demonstrated that the essential micronutrients and metabolic cofactors found in Alcohol Detox work to support healthy liver function and proper alcohol metabolism. These nutrients are also crucial for healthy immune function, as excessive alcohol in the body can contribute to oxidative stress and impaired immune function.
