Beware of Fatty Liver #UrbalWisdom

Love your liver Urbal

What is Fatty Liver

Two types of fatty liver disease exist: alcohol-induced and non-alcoholic liver disease.  With excessive consumption of alcohol, alcohol-induced fatty liver occurs due the accumulation of fat in the cells of the liver. This serious condition is characterized by a swollen liver and tenderness on the right side of the lower back.

Fatty Liver Symptoms

Its symptoms include fever, jaundice, spider veins and increased white blood cell count. Occasionally, however, fat builds up in the liver for other, sometimes unknown, reasons. Nonalcoholic fatty liver is often asymptomatic and harmless, but if the excess fat causes inflammation it can lead to problems with liver function. See a medical doctor to diagnose the condition of your liver.

Conquering Acetaldehyde #UrbalWisdom

Acetaldehyde & Beer by Urbal

What is Acetaldehyde

Acetaldehyde is a toxic byproduct of the disintegration of alcohol in the liver.  The enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), found in your liver, breaks down alcohol into acetaldehyde. It is then further broken down into acetate by the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH).

The dihydromyricetin (DHM) found in Urbal Hangover Defence’s Moyeam Tea facilitates the work of ALDH so that the acetaldehyde in your system is processed faster.  Faster processing improves symptoms associated with drunkenness such as slurred speech, loss of coordination, and lowered reaction time.

There is no need to give up your love for alcohol in favour of a healthy lifestyle. Urbal Hangover Defence provides the supplements you need to keep your body in good health while consuming alcohol moderately. These supplements protect your liver and conquer hangover symptoms by attacking acetaldehyde. Get your packs today.

Moyeam Tea King of Flavanoids #UrbalWisdom

moyeam tea Urbal

You may be wondering why we’ve crowned the Moyeam Tea Vine the “King of Flavanoids”… and wait a minute, what on earth is a “Flavonoid” anyway?

What are Flavonoids?

In recent years, scientists have turned to various flavonoids to explain some of the health benefits associated with diets rich in fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits. Diets rich in flavonoid-containing foods are sometimes associated with prevention of cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disease.

…(Drum Roll) Introducing the Moyeam Tea Vine

Moyeam Tea Vine is believed have one of the highest concentration of flavonoids in the world amongst plants.

Moyeam Tea Vine (茅岩莓) grows in the Zhang JiaJie mountains. This precious tea vine is harvested by the Tujia minority, and contains rich flavonoids, amino acids, vitamins and proteins:

  • The Moyeam Tea Vine contains 17 kinds of Amino Acid.
  • It’s Protein content averages 11%-15%.
  • There are 14 kinds of trace elements, especially rich in Fe, Cu,Mn, Zn (important to health).
  • Moyeam Tea’s average flavonoids content is around 40% (amongst the highest concentration of all known plants).
  • Main active constituent Ampelopsin (Dihydromyricetin) reaches 70% among flavonoids.

What?! Moyeam Tea can help with hangovers?

That’s right, Moyeam Tea Vine can help with your hangovers! You may be wondering: Well how does it help? Let us explain, it turns out that among the flavonoids constituent in the Moyeam Tea Vine, there happens to be an incredible concentration of Dihydromyricetin (reaching 70%). Well, what’s Dihydromyricetin? Research into Dihydromyricetin (DHM) has shown it’s potential to increase the body’s ability to process acetaldehyde – the toxic by-product of alcohol (Acetaldehyde is a by-product of alcohol breakdown in the liver which is up to 30 times more toxic than alcohol itself). In short, with the help of the Moyeam Tea Vine, the liver can increase it’s efficiency in breaking down alcohol and thereby reducing hangover symptoms (Read more about alcohol and the cause of hangovers here).

Hangover Causes #UrbalWisdom

There’s a science to understanding the hangover, and an art to never suffering from one!

Science of Hangover Causes

We’ve all experienced that awful feeling in the morning after a night out drinking.

Hangovers are characterised by a list of awful symptoms experienced after consuming excessive alcohol. These symptoms may include headache, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, stomach discomfort, drowsiness and cognitive fuzziness.

The most familiar explanation for hangover causes include dehydration. This is because alcoholacts as a diuretic, and because people who are drinking heavily for hours probably aren’t drinking much water in that same time period. Yet, studies examining the link between dehydration and hangovers have shown surprising data, whereby it is likely that dehydration accounts for only some of the symptoms of a hangover and there are definitely other factors at play.

Additional Hangover causes include the build up of a toxic compound known as acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is a by-product of alcohol breakdown in the liver which is up to 30 times more toxic than alcohol itself and has been found to produce hangover-like symptoms in studies. Fortunately, there is a cure to this toxic substance. Research into Dihydromyricetin (DHM) which can be pulled from natural herbs such as Moyeam Tea & Oriental Raisin have shown to increase the body’s ability to process acetaldehyde. Hence, with the liver’s increased efficiency, hangover symptoms caused by the breakdown of alcohol can be reduced.

Art of avoiding Hangovers 

Are you ready for the long-awaited to answer for avoiding all hangovers? STOP DRINKING! The best hangover cure is to simply avoid drinking alcohol.

Yet, we understand that it’s difficult to stop drinking, especially because it’s so engrained in our culture and DNA. So here’s a tip for avoiding hangovers If you choose to drink: Firstly remember to stay hydrated. Secondly support your liver from the damaging by-products of alcohol breakdown. Oriental Raisin extract supplements can be bought at most health food stores, and the proprietary formula for Hangover Defence which includes Moyeam Tea extract as well as a host of other beneficials natural ingredients can be found online at www.urbal.co
