HANGOVER

   The following information comes mainly from the book "Life Extension" by

Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, as well as some personal research.

   Alcohol metabolism is a fairly simple process.  The liver processes

alcohol by first converting it to acetaldehyde, which is a toxic chemical. Acetaldehyde can create abnormal chemical bonds in cells and can increases free radicals in the body, which have been implicated in cancer and the aging process. Usually, the liver quickly converts acetaldehyde to acetate, which is much less harmful. However, when you drink faster than the body can convert the acetaldehyde to acetate, you can damage your body.

   Certain nutrients can help protect you from acetaldehyde and free radical

damage. Combined with an analgesic, you can cure your hangover and help lessen the damage you do to your body.
