Alcohol & Health
At Urbal we love to drink. The Hangover Defence is a plant-based supplement hangover cure which improves the body’s ability to metabolise alcohol and protects the liver from long term damaging effects of alcohol.
Moyeam Tea extract is a key ingredient used in the hangover pills. Moyeam Tea extract can help to improve hangover symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and nausea.
Milk thistle extract is the second key ingredient used in the Hangover Defence supplement. Milk Thistle can help to detoxify the liver and maintain long term liver health.
Urbal Hangover Defence incorporates Moyeam Vine Tea in its formula. Moyeam Tea grows in Zhang Jiajie in the high mountains above sea level of 800m to 1500m. In 1385, the Tujia minority presented Moyeam Tea to the emperor of China, at the time, it was colloquially named” Heaven Tea” due to its outstanding health benefits.
Moyeam has been cited for the following properties: Improving immune regulation. Supporting anti-aging through elimination of free radicals. Restraining & killing bacteria. Decreasing blood fat. Decreasing blood sugar. Protecting the liver from damage (in particular damage due to alcohol).
Urbal Hangover Defence uses the active ingredient in Moyeam Tea known as Dihydromyricetin (DHM). Ground-breaking research conducted on DHM suggests that it can increase our body’s ability to process acetaldehyde (the toxic by-product of alcohol breakdown which has been linked to the cause of hangover symptoms). As a result, of taking this, intoxication can be reduced and our hangover symptoms can be improved.
Urbal incorporates Milk Thistle Extract in it’s Hangover Defence formula. The Greek physician and botanist Dioscorides was the first to describe milk thistle’s healing properties back in the year 40 A.D. Milk thistle has been used for over 2,000 years While it has many different benefits, milk thistle is most well-known for being a liver detoxifier.
The liver constantly works hard to help defend us from toxins that are common in our everyday life. The liver acts like a filter removing harmful substances from the body. Milk Thistle helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver. Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe in and even poisons!
The compound silymarin found in milk thistle extract has been studied for decades and is now recognised as one of the best supplements for liver health. Glutathione is considered the body’s master antioxidant and vital for effective liver functioning. Milk thistle extract has been shown to increase glutathione levels in the liver by up to 35 percent and decrease oxidative stress. In addition Silymarin protects liver cells by blocking or neutralising certain hepatotoxic (liver toxic) compounds like alcohol, acetaminophen, carbon tetrachloride and many others.

Urbal’s Founder Troy Sing is a Hong Kong & Australian Registered Practitioner of Chinese Medicine with over 25 years of clinical experience. A Graduate of Australia’s Chinese Medicine Degree Program, he has completed a Masters in neuro-physiology investigating the analgesic mechanisms of acupuncture (1995). Troy has a number of publications (more information can be found at www.chinesemed.hk) and held the position of President of the Hong Kong Medical Acupuncture Association (2002-05).
Troy describes: “Chinese Medicine is for preventing illness & disease, not simply treating the symptoms. It’s about staying in tune with nature to help your body, mind & spirit reach its full potential, in achieving this, we believe illness can be prevented.
Chinese Medicine texts document a group of “Superior Herbs” which can be taken continuously throughout a person’s life to promote health & well-being (not necessarily used for treating disease). These herbs include: Goji Berries, Ginseng, Ampelopsin and 117 more. Today, some of these herbs are easily available and are labelled as superfoods. Continually, researchers are discovering more about their active ingredients which make them special.
In 2015 Troy founded Urbal with a mission to reintroduce an old idea to a modern generation; the idea of using natural solutions and superior herbs to help us reach our full potential.
