MANAGING WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS

INSOMNIA

When withdrawing from Alcohol, whether you are a frequent user or not, it can be hard to fall asleep and get a good quality of sleep.

Symptom management
To mitigate the withdrawal symptoms that can affect sleep cycles, we have included our ‘Relax & Sleep Complex’ in the program. It contains adaptogens that help to support the adrenal system and reduce stress in the body, thus helping fight insomnia and restless nights.

ANXIETY

For some people, Alcohol is greatly tied to feeling comfortable in social situations and so it is common to experience some anxiety during the early stages of sobriety.

Symptom management
There are many reasons why you may experience an increase in anxious feelings during withdrawal from alcohol. To ease this uncomfortable feeling we have included the Relax & Sleep Complex to help you unwind without the need to consume alcohol. Our ‘Serotonin Plus’ contains ingredients that help to regulate mood.

DEPRESSION

Alcohol use is often linked to depression, but sometimes you can experience serotonin imbalance during the first few weeks of sobriety, due to withdrawal from the substance as well as social factors.

Symptom management
Serotonin is an important mood regulator and so we have included in the program ‘Serotonin Plus’, which helps promote stable mood. This is important during the sobriety process as mood can often fluctuate due to withdrawal from alcohol.

SUGAR CRAVINGS

When you try to kick an alcohol addiction or dependency it can often be easy to fill the space with another dependency. Sugar cravings are often increased during the withdrawal process which can cause negative health problems.

Symptom management
Included in the program is our Rave not Crave complex, which contains Chromium which helps to reduce sugar cravings and may improve blood glucose control.

Supporting the benefits

WEIGHT LOSS

Alcohol and common alcoholic drinks can have large amounts of hidden calories. Cutting out alcohol can trigger weight loss as you will likely be decreasing excessive caloric intake.

Benefit Support
To help you get the most out of your sobriety, we have included ingredients that will assist with weight loss. The program includes our ‘Rave not Crave’ complex which helps increase energy and reduce sugar cravings, two things that are great to help weight loss. We also have the optional add-on product ‘Weight loss RX’ which contains Berberine, among others which all work together to support weight loss and overall health.

LIVER DETOX & GUT HEALTH

Alcohol consumption has harmful effects on normal healthy gut bacteria. This can lead to gut and bowel problems and so cutting out alcohol can help improve these issues. Alcohol is toxic to the liver, and this stress can be dangerous to your overall health and function.

Benefit Support
Our ‘Antioxidant complex’ contains a powerful blend of ingredients to support healthy liver function. This will aid in the detoxification of your body and help you feel all the benefits of sobriety

IMPROVED SLEEP

Cutting out alcohol can help you get more consistent and restful sleep, meaning that within 1 week you should see improvements in your sleep patterns.

Benefit Support
To help make sure you experience improved sleep during your sobriety process we have included our ‘Relax and Sleep Complex’ to help you feel calm, relaxed and able to stick to a regular and restful sleep pattern.

IMPROVED MOOD

Alcohol is known to be a depressive substance and so consumption can often lead to anxiety and depression. Cutting out alcohol, even for a short period, can lead to improved mood and can aid in the management of mood disorders.

Benefit Support
Cutting out Alcohol can have a great positive effect on mood. We have included ‘Serotonin Plus’ in the program to help regulate mood as well as our ‘Relax &
