Avoid nightshades before surgery


Are you one of those people who seems to struggle for days to recover from anaesthesia? If so, you may find avoiding the nightshades will help you recover faster.  Research suggests that nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, aubergine, bell peppers and potatoes) can delay recovery from anaesthesia.  Who knew?

The solanaceae family of plants inhibits two enzymes which help the body recover from anaesthetic drugs.  To optimise recovery, omit these for a week prior to surgery.  Of course anaesthesia is also very hard on the liver, so it’s a very good idea a week prior to surgery to take both our Pure Hydrolysed Collagen and Milk Thistle. These will both do damage control and help you in the recovery process.

We sincerely hope nobody needs surgery, but if you do these are a couple of tips to help you. You can get these products at https://sallyanncreed.co.za/shop
