A key ingredient in Purgo Health’s Hair Skin & Nails formula is Thiamine, a B-vitamin that helps decrease the risk and symptoms of a specific brain disorder called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS).

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has been used for 2,000 years as an herbal remedy for a variety of ailments affecting the liver, kidney, and gall bladder. The active ingredient in Milk Thistle known to protect the liver is silymarin, a chemical extracted from the seeds. Silymarin is a trio of flavonoids (silibinin, silidianin, and silicristin), which are thought to help repair liver cells damaged by alcohol and other toxic substances. Research studies have indicated Milk Thistle also helps counteract the toxic effect of death cap mushroom poisoning as well as fight cancer by blocking the division and reproduction of cancer cells and shortening their life span.
Kudzu contains phytochemicals, which are potent antioxidant compounds found naturally in plants, that help to prevent and treat disease. Dating back as early as 600 AD, Kudzu Extract has been used in Chinese medicine as an herbal remedy to treat alcoholism and to reduce symptoms of alcohol hangover, including headache, upset stomach, tinnitus, fever, dizziness, and vomiting.
The isoflavones found in kudzu root extract are also used to treat alcohol related disorders. Kudzu is beneficial to alcoholism because it is purported to suppress alcohol cravings and reduce alcohol consumption. It also helps to shorten the duration of alcohol induced sleep and lower peak alcohol levels. In addition, kudzu has been found to help reduce the effects of alcohol hangovers, such as headaches, dizziness, upset stomach and vomiting.
Folate (B 6)
Folate plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair, encouraging cell and tissue growth. Excessive alcohol intake inflames the lining of the stomach and interferes with vitamin absorption, often leading to nutritional deficiency, (especially of thiamine and folic acid). Without supplementation of folate/folic acid, adults may experience neurological problems including anemia, dizziness, weight loss, loss of sensation in hands and feet, depression and dementia.
Thiamine (B 1)
Thiamin deficiency can lead to brain damage and the brain disorder Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, a condition that affects memory, muscle coordination, vision and cognition. Supplementing your diet with Thiamin daily may prevent and reverse existing damage.
Niacin (B 3)
Niacin B3 and other B vitamin deficiency can lead to a variety of neurological disorders including dementia, poor memory and depression. Niacin B3 helps maintain healthy cardiovascular system, brain function, and skin formation. Niacin helps improve circulation, and it has been shown to suppress inflammation.
Deficiency of B 12 and other B vitamins can lead to a variety of neurological disorders including dementia, poor memory and depression. B 12 plays an important role in the production of brain chemicals that affect our mood and proper brain function. During alcohol withdrawal, supplementing with B 12 and other B vitamins may help ease the recovery process.
