Would you wolf down algae to get rid of a hangover?

by Daniel Tomas on 11 January 2016
Health     |      alcohol,  Alexandrian chamaedaphne,  Chlorella,  hangover,  heavy metals,  Japan,  Ruscus racemosus L.

Many of us have overindulged in alcohol over the past two-three weeks, and those readers who resonated with this article’s title are definetly in search for a good hangover remedy. If not as we speak, then for the near future.

The healthcare industry knows there’s a slice to tap into, so they’ve created many types of so-called remedies that will bias the effects of too much alchol. Most of these pills include of some kind of anti-inflammatory substance such as aspirin or ibuprofen, but many fear that taking them may not only prove useless but may even have harmful side-effects.

Since people have a natural inclination to chose natural remedies over chemicals, the Japanese algea delicacy Chlorella, might interest those in search of a bio-remedy. Experts claim it has many outstanding properties, including the ability to absorb heavy metals, alcohol and other harmful substances from a person’s digestive system.

Chlorella, although highly regarded by the Japanese, is not native to Japan’s waters and may be found in the seas of Europe or the oceans of the United States, both fresh and in the in the shape of concetrated pills, sold by most pharmacies. The question still remains : Would you eat it?

Health experts make their recommendations based on the active substances, but many factor in the ancient customs of peoples dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Similarly to Chlorella, the ancient shrub named the Alexandrian chamaedaphne or Ruscus racemosus L., in Latin, was used by the Egyptians to alleviate pains caused by overdrinking.

Whatever remedy you choose to take, whether natural or chemical, the best option is to drink in moderation.
