It has also demonstrated effectiveness for non-specific inflammation in the intestines (Braun & Cohen, 2010).

    1. Sfera Hangover Remedy: Your Ultimate Pre- & Post-Party aid

    What’s Inside: Sfera Hangover Remedy is a carefully crafted blend designed to prevent hangovers and aid in recovery after a night of celebration. Here's why it's your ultimate recovery solution:

      • Zeolites (Clinoptilolite): Zeolites are microscopic volcanic minerals, with clinoptilolite being the most commonly used in medicine. Research confirms clinoptilolite's ability to decrease the absorption of ingested ethanol, effectively reducing blood alcohol levels (Federico et al., 2015).
  • Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum): Ganoderic Acid A which is found in Reishi mushroom protects against alcoholic liver injury.  It has excellent effects on liver function and lipid metabolism, making it a valuable component for preventing alcohol-induced liver injury (Lv et al., 2022).
    • Fulvic Acid: Fulvic acid helps with nutrient transportation into deep tissues, combating tiredness, lethargy, and chronic fatigue. It contains over 84 types of minerals, acting as a carrier molecule in the human system, aiding nutrient transportation, and eliminating deep-seated toxins from the body (Shenyuan, 1993; Meena, Pandey, Arya, & Ahmed, 2010).

    Enjoy worry-free celebrations knowing that Sfera Hangover Remedy has your back. With its unique combination of natural ingredients, it’s the ultimate recovery solution after overindulgence.
