The active ingredients of Security Feel Better have an effect on food digestion and drink assimilation.
Among the active ingredients of Security Feel Better’s formula, three are particularly known for their digestive properties on food. First of all, angelica works on the intestinal and digestive system. It helps to ease digestion, relieves spasms and prevents bloating. As for artichoke, it is famous for its action on digestion and its benefit on the liver. Finally, Yunnan tea is recognized for its action on fats and the carbohydrate assimilation.
Numerous scientific studies have been carried out on the impact of plants on alcohol assimilation and hangover prevention, notably the effect of fructose on alcoholism ((1) (2) (3) (4)..) Similarly, ascorbic acid has been the subject of clinical studies and its action on alcohol concentration kinetics has been well-established ((5) (6) (7) (8) (9)).
