What supplements should a heavy drinker take?
There is ongoing research in to the use of nutritional supplements for alcohol recovery, and to help manage type two diabetes. Regular, heavy drinking may cause irregular eating habits that can incite deficiencies in pyridoxine, Folic Acid, and Thiamin; the B Vitamin found in meat, grains and yeast. Being overweight increases the risk of developing diabetes, and recent studies suggest that those with the condition may benefit from supplements containing Chromium (found in many foods), Cinnamon, and antioxidant-rich Alpha-Lipoic Acid. At present however, there is not enough scientific evidence to truly indicate whether nutritional supplements can really help manage diabetes and alcoholism. With this in mind, it is always advised to seek medical consultation before considering the use of nutritional supplements for these conditions.
