Being the life of the party needn’t mean feeling awful...
While most of us may have done it now and again, few of us understand the short and long term effect of ‘too much of a good thing’. Rich food, sweets, wine and over-indulgence mean quite a bit of multi-tasking for that special and under-rated organ - the liver. Everything that enters our body (via the skin, mouth or lungs) must be detoxified and refined by the liver. The liver is the main filtering organ and it is also most hardworking one - striving to do its best at all times. It is responsible (in most part) for the metabolism of fats, synthesizes around 95% of proteins as well as carbohydrates and sugars. (So the extra helping of thanksgiving desert or the last few rounds of drinks at the annual office party all need to pass through the liver!)
Blood is purified' by the liver daily, removing harmful waste from the blood and making the liver the major detoxifying organ. The digestive system forms an intimate co-operation with the liver. When we consume alcohol and rich foods, they need to pass first into the stomach, then the pancreas (which secretes digestive enzymes), then to the liver, gall bladder, and ultimately the small and large intestines. In this way the liquids and solids we consume are metabolized. Metabolism is the body's process of converting ingested substances to other compounds that can be used by the various body systems.
The liver can only metabolize a certain amount of alcohol per hour, (regardless of how many rounds you may have). The rate of alcohol metabolism depends, in part, on the amount of metabolizing enzymes in the liver, which varies from person to person. The body breaks alcohol down in several ways but the liver is the major organ tasked with its metabolism. An enzyme known as alcohol dehydrogenase breaks the alcohol down to a compound known as acetaldehyde. The second step in the breakdown of alcohol is the conversion of the acetaldehyde to simple acetic acid. The liver completely metabolizes over 90% of the alcohol ingested, while the rest is excreted as sweat, urine or exhaled (hence DUI breath tests!). The liver is a highly efficient organ at metabolizing alcohol in manageable amounts.
Converting alcohol to less toxic breakdown products requires above all else - enzymes. Enzymes perform chemical modifications to other chemicals and often require the presence of calcium, zinc or iron. So, if we are to effectively deal with alcohol, we need to be healthy, have a primed liver, have a ready supply of amino acids, coenzymes and essential fatty acids and also take a pinch of common sense with regards to what a body can and cannot do…
While excessive consumption of alcohol, drugs or even overly rich food is not recommended, especially on a regular basis, it is possible to protect your system from some of the effects during times of occasional overindulgence.
The Natural Way
So what can be done naturally to support a healthy liver and thereby provide protection against the onslaught of toxins ingested during times of excess?
Firstly, drinking alcohol responsibly and in moderation is advised. While one or two incidences of alcohol over-indulgence are a common reality for many, this should be kept to a minimum. Maintaining a healthy weight can also go a long way in supporting your liver and avoidance of smoking or uncooked mollusks (clams, oysters, mussels, scallops) is a good health practice to help protect the liver from harm. Drinking 8 glasses of water and engaging in moderate regular exercise can also go a long way to promote healthy digestion. Getting the right minerals and vitamins from a healthy balanced diet is also recommended.
Herbalists and naturopaths from cultures all over the world have used traditional medicine for centuries to assist the liver and digestive system to regulate their functions. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now various published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support liver health. (Ferenci P, Dragosics B, Dittrich H, Frank H, Benda L, Lochs H, Meryn S, Base W and Schneider B (1989) “Randomized controlled trial of silymarin treatment in patients with cirrhosis of the liver”. J Hepatol 9: 105-113. Medline).

Detox Drops – to support the body in standard detoxification and promote cleansing
"Holidays always leave me feeling at my limit. I tend to do things in excess, and love to over-indulge at family events, but after a heavy holiday meal and a few beers I really don’t feel great and get a bit sluggish. This thanksgiving I used your product and what a difference! I used it on the day, and felt much much better. Now when I over-do it every now and then, I know I am giving my body a helping hand."
- Kenneth R.
"My wife and I are known as ‘party animals’ by our friends. We love to go out partying now and then. When we saw this product we knew it was for us, now when we go out to celebrate, we also know that we are being responsible and taking care or ourselves too!!!! Thank you!"
– Dave and Lizza Sommers
"The guys in my fraternity used to rag me for not living it up with them. It was just that I didn’t want to over-indulge, cause it would upset my body and I am an athlete. Since I started using your product, I feel like I have a natural back-up and one or two hours partying doesn’t leave me feeling awful afterwards. Thanks for a great remedy."
"I bought this as a present 4 my dad, who occasionally has one 2 many! I have noticed such an improvement, that I have taken it too b4 a night out with friends, don’t tell him ;) and when I go back to college I’m taking a bottle with me too! Thanks so much 4 a great natural product!"
What does Pre-Party Protect contain?
Pre-Party Protect is a 100% herbal formula that contains the following powerful proven herbs in therapeutic dosage, presented in a 100% vege-capsule:
Silybum marianus (Milk thistle):
Milk thistle seeds contain a bioflavonoid complex known as silymarin. (Wagner H, Horhammer L, Munster R. "The chemistry of silymarin (silybin), the active principle of the fruits of Silybum marianum (l.) Gaertner", Arzneim-Forsch Drug Research 1968; 18: 688-96.) Silybin is the most active and is largely responsible for the benefits attributed to promoting liver health. (Ferenci P, Dragosics B, Dittrich H, Frank H, Benda L, Lochs H, Meryn S, Base W and Schneider B (1989) “Randomized controlled trial of silymarin treatment in patients with cirrhosis of the liver”. J Hepatol 9: 105-113[Medline]).
Recent studies have investigated Silymarin for its positive properties with respect to alcohol in particular. (Feher J, Deak G, Muzes G, Lang I, Niederland V, Nekam K and Karteszi M (1989) “Liver-protective action of silymarin therapy in chronic alcoholic liver diseases”. Orvosi Hetilap 130: 2723-2727. Medline). According to further animal studies, milk thistle extract (silymarin) may also serve as an antioxidant further encouraging liver vitality. (Sonnenbichler J, Mattersberger J and Rosen H (1976) “Stimulation of RNA synthesis in rat liver and isolated hepatocytes by silybin, an anti-hepatotoxic agent from Silybum marianum” L. Gaertn. Hoppe Seyler's Z Physiol Chem 357: 1171-1180 Medline.).
Althaea officinalis (Marshmallow):
The botanical name of this herb comes from the Greek word "altho," which means "to cure." Marshmallow contains large sugar molecules called mucilage, which are thought to exert a soothing effect on mucous membranes (such as those lining the stomach and digestive system), and this is the basis of most proposed uses of the herb. (Rosik JK , Kardosová A , Toman R , Capek P . “Isolation and characterization of mucilages from Althaea officinalis L. and Malva silvestris L., ssp. Mauritiana” (L.) Thell . Cesk Farm . 1984;33:68-71). References document the plant's efficacy as a natural anti-inflammatory for the Gastro-Intestinal tract. (Blumenthal M, Goldberg A, Brinckmann J, eds. “Herbal Medicine: Expanded Commission E Monographs . Marshmallow leaf”. Austin, TX: American Botanical Council; Newton, MA: Integrative Medicine Communications; 2000).
Ulmus fulva (Slippery elm):
Slippery Elm has a high mucilaginous polysaccharide content (50%), providing a protective lining in the stomach and exerting a calming effect when used internally as a demulcent (a substance found to be soothing to inflamed mucous membranes). Additionally, animal studies have shown an extract of Slippery elm to be beneficial in promoting liver health and systemic balance in the liver. (Lee SJ, Oh PS, Ko JH, Lim K, Lim KT. “Protective effect of glycoprotein isolated from Ulmus davidiana Nakai on carbon tetrachloride-induced mouse liver injury”. Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology. 2006;58(1):143-152).
Pre-Party Protect contains no gluten, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or animal products.
How do I use Pre-Party Protect?
Dosage: Take two capsules three times a day (beginning on the day of the party) and during the day after. Can be used with Hang-Over Morning Mend for acute problems to concentrate directly on the woes of a hangover.
Caution: Safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not yet been determined. Please note that regular or excessive alcohol consumption leads to liver disease and other health and social problems. Drink alcohol responsibly and never drink and drive.
How long until I see results?
As with many effective herbal treatments, Pre-Party Protect begins to support the healthy liver almost immediately. Pre-Party Protect is presented in all-herbal vege-capsules that facilitate rapid absorption through the stomach and into the liver. This means that natural liver support and systemic health is encouraged from the start.
During times of occasional over-indulgence, Pre-Party Protect will support the body – helping to promote feelings of natural ‘detox’ through liver support, thus naturally helping to cleanse and protect the system and promote consistency during and after a time of excess consumption.
How long does a bottle of Pre-Party Protect last?
One bottle of Pre-Party Protect contains 60 vege-capsules and can therefore be used on five different occasions.
