TN Scientific is committed to helping you beat your hangover! The Hangover Pill includes a premium, 13-ingredient formula that contains a blend of multiple vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients geared towards helping you replenish your vitals after a long night out! Read on to learn more in-depth about Milk Thistle, one of the herbs in our formula that will battle hangover symptoms!
Milk Thistle is an herb native to Europe, Southern Russia, Asia Minor, and Northern Africa. However, it now also grows in North America, South America, and Australia. You may also see milk thistle be called silymarin. Silymarin is the main component of the milk thistle plant, however, the names are used interchangeably.
Milk Thistle can be in the form of powders, capsules, or extracts. The most common use for taking milk thistle supplements is for liver problems. The positive impact this plant has on the liver is what makes it perfect for The Hangover Pill by TN Scientific.
In a 2013 study, Milk Thistle was shown to prevent progressive bone loss. This type of bone loss happens in osteoporosis, a degenerative disease known to develop over the years and make your bones weak, fragile, and able to break easily.
Milk Thistle is also known to help with acne. Taking a supplement of 210mg of milk thistle a day for eight weeks showed a 53% decrease in acne lesions.
Those with Type 2 diabetes can take a Milk Thistle supplement to help decrease blood sugar.
Milk Thistle is an all-natural antioxidant. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Due to this, it's most common use in the United States is for the liver. Milk Thistle can act as a protector from the toxins that go through your liver, such as ethanol, found in alcoholic drinks. This herb can protect from hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and even some liver cancer.
It's because of these protective properties for the liver that makes Mik Thistle such a helpful supplement to have around during a hangover. It will reduce the damage done to your liver by free radicals, which are created when the liver metabolizes toxic substances such as alcohol. Milk Thistle's regenerative effect on cells will help heal your liver after a night out.
Since Milk Thistle is proven to be so helpful to the liver, it was an easy decision on our part to include it in TN Scientific's 13-ingredient formula for The Hangover Pill.
When you drink too much alcohol, it acts as a natural diuretic, meaning it increases your urine production. While you sit on the toilet 12 times in one night, you end up ridding your body of a lot of necessary vitamins and minerals. You then end up with a small deficiency in most, or all, of these necessary nutrients. When you have a deficiency you can wake up tired, in pain, nauseous, or fatigued. (You cand read more about hangovers in our article about them here). While Milk Thistle does not occur naturally in the body and therefore is impossible to have a deficiency in, it helps counteract the symptoms of deficiency in all your other vitamins.
Are you feeling nauseous? Milk Thistle's anti-inflammatory properties help prevent this!
The Hangover Pill includes Milk Thistle along with all the vitamins and minerals your body will need to regenerate after a long night. Taking a dose of our vitamin supplement before you go out and after your last drink can greatly reduce the severity of your morning-after symptoms. How many pills you will take will depend on the amount of drinking you do. The Hangover Pill will restore the balance of vitamins in your body and lighten your hangover symptoms! TN Scientific is committed to helping your hangovers disappear!
