As you find and caress your phone you  check and see your texts from last night. You remember how you told your friend night you would make it to brunch by 12. It’s already 11am and you don’t feel have the wherewithal to roll out of bed right now. Your head slightly aches.  You need some caffeine ASAP and a glass of water or aspirin.

You lead a busy lifestyle. one that keeps you out late and causes you to wake up early in the morning. When you combine such a your schedule  with a few late-night cocktails, especially after celebrating at a company outing, you may experience an uptick in miserable mornings filled with headaches, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.

As you find a glass of water you grab  your first hangover helper kit, praying for this new product to work and rid you of terrible mornings forever.  You drink the electrolyte powerder and down the pills and finally roll out of bed to take a shower. Within a half hour you are revved up, exited to actually make it to brunch on time this morning and exited to try more of this hangover helper every time you have a few drinks too many.

So how Does the Hangover Helper Work and is it useful?

Anyone thats has a few late night or afternoon cocktails and drinks knows that sometimes they may experience the tired, dehydrated, dull feeling of a hangover. Although not everyone may experience hanogver, when you get one you wish it would just dissapar as quickly as that last drink you downed.  You are tired because you were up late and didnt sleep well from your body processing the ethanol, i.e. the part of the alcohol that gets you drunk. You may also have a headache from the dehydration and lack of food you ate.in bed 3

The first step in the hangover helper kit thats kicks awat that tired headache feeling is  the electrolye balance the hangover helper has. Your body loses essential vitamins and electrolyes from a night of drinking, and the best way to get that back is an electrolyte rich solution such as the hangover helper.  This fomula helps your body rehydrate the night of or morning after drinking.  Some of the rich vitamins it contains include thiamine i.e. Vitamin B1. Water can help you rehydrate but it does not contain the minerals your body needs to reestablish the right balance to get on your feet and feel great again.

Another essential piece to the hangover sure solution is the herbal ectract which helps you metabolize alcohol and its toxic  byproduct, acetaldehyde. As you get older your body produces less and less of the enzyme which helps you break down and process acetalaldehyde. Hangover helpers herbal extract contain dihydromyricetin, which speeds up the bodys ability to metabalize the products and it also helps protect your brain from  damange excessive alcohol consumtion creates. It does so by reducing the effect  that alcohol has on GABA receptors, the receptors that make you feel drunk.

So you are repleshing wiht electrolyres and vitamins, but what bout that headache?

Dont’ fear, the hangoverhelper kit also includes the best natural aspirin you can find. Along with Caffeine, it also contains willow bark extract, which rids you of the headache associated with a hangover. The caffeine can help speed the flow of toxins out of your body while the electrolytes work their magic on restoring your body to the right balance to feel great again.

brunch

Since you took the hangover helper kit you were able to make it out of the house before noon for once and got your brunch with no negative hangover after-effects.  Knowing how the hangover helper kit works is one key step to feeling better, and this useful late night drinking helper is simple, easy to carry around and leaves you feeling energized and ready for brunch, another day at work, or a long day at the university library studying.

Hangover causes and prevention

I have a love hate relationship with craft beer. I love some nice high ABV Double IPA’s but I hate the hangovers from drinking too much beer.That’s at least the way it seems the morning after. But why does alcohol make you feel so bad the morning after and can the dreaded hangover be avoided? I decided to look into the science behind a hangover and see whether I can enjoy a glass of beer without wanting to spend the next day in bed.

Cause number 1: Dehydration

Most people are aware of the fact alcohol is diuretic, which means it makes you wee more. The result is that the next morning you run the risk of dehydration along with a dry mouth and headache. Lovely stuff.

Prevention: Try to drink water between alcoholic drinks and/or drink water before you go to bed.

If you’ve ever tried the approach of downing a pint of water before you go to bed after a heavy night on  booze you’ll be aware of the fact that, although it may help, it doesn’t mean you get away hangover free. So there must be more to a hangover than just the dehydration… In fact, it turns out alcohol is pretty poisonous and not just in the “what’s your poison?” sense, more in a surprisingly toxic way.

Cause number 2: Acetaldehyde

When we drink alcohol it is absorbed into our blood stream and works its way around our body. When it reaches the brain it makes you feel relaxed an uninhibited, which is the part we all enjoy, however this is not the only place alcohol leaves its mark. In the liver alcohol is metabolised (broken down) into different compounds which can then be removed from the body as waste. This process requires several steps before the final non-toxic products of water and carbon dioxide are made.

The first step is to turn the alcohol into acetaldehyde using an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase. The side effects of having acetaldehyde in your system include nausea, headaches and vomiting – sound familiar?


Prevention: There is none. You just have to wait for your body to metabolise the acetaldehyde into its less harmful by-products. So unfortunately if you spend the morning having an unwanted date hugging the toilet you just have to wait it out. As acetaldehyde is even more toxic than alcohol moderation is probably the key.

PRO TIP:

Chow Down Early And Often

Eating something before, or during drinking might  your trusted first line of defense against a hangover, and you probably know how this is supposed to help. Food is supposed to slow the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream, and this is key — remember how important it is to give your liver time to breakdown the alcohol? Your body is pretty quick to absorb alcohol though, so  eating after will help a lot less than eating before or while you’re drinking:

Cause number 3: NAD+ depletion

The metabolism of alcohol and acetaldehyde use a compound called NAD+. This NAD+ is also vital for the day to day health of your cells. It helps converts water, oxygen and a compound called pyruvate into energy. If the NAD+ has been used up metabolising alcohol, your cells need to make more. The cells convert pyruvate into lactate and this reaction produces more NAD+. The second consequence is that when pyruvate is converted to lactate, your liver becomes less efficient at regulating your blood sugar levels and blood sugar can become very low. Ever had the desire to eat the entire contents of your cupboards post pinot? That’ll be the low blood sugar.

Prevention; There’s not a lot you can do about the depleted NAD+ other than wait for your liver to do its magic (otherwise known as metabolism) and restore the natural balance. As for the low blood sugar, based on the assumption you’re not still hugging the potty, it’s a good idea to make sure you eat. That’s a free pass for a one way ticket to pasta-ville in my eyes.

Prevention: Eat food rich in cysteine post alcohol which includes eggs, chicken and oats. Cysteine is an important building block of glutathione, so making sure you get more into your body gives your cells a fighting chance at making more glutathione. Have a glass of vitamin C rich orange juice. Vitamin C is powerful anti-oxidant, meaning it can interact with the reactive oxygen species, preventing them from reacting with protein and DNA in your cells.

If you’re going to have a heavy night of drinking, prepare and have the mindset for the drinking the same way an athlete would for a competition or game. Preparation is vital and eating the right foods rich in protein, carbs and healthier fats  is the first step. Make sure you’re hydrated before a night out drinking. Drink water in between drinks and some electrolytes after a night out with proper hydration is essential to minimizing any negative effects of drinking. Personally I like to have some electrolyte solution, a bit of green tea and a morning workout to get over a heavy night of drinking. With the right mindset you can enjoy day drinking or nights out and not worry as much about having a hangover the next day.

10 Best and Worst Foods for Hangovers

It happened. Whether you planned for it or not, you just  had a heavy night of drinking or  maybe you didn’t hydrate and eat enough before a few drinks and now have a nasty hangover. “What is there to do, and how can I get through thing hangover?” Fear not as here’s some tips on do’s and don’ts for hangover foods.

The reason you are feeling so terrible is that electrolytes, water and essential nutrients have been flushed out of your body making you dehydrated. Your  liver is trying to process  and break down all the sugar and alcohol that you just drank as well as  you didn’t sleep well after a night drinking. The best way to start getting over  your hangover is  to start replenishing electrolytes, drinking plenty of water, avoiding too much  caffeine and eating the right foods.

First off: What not to eat:

1.Super Greasy over saturated fatty foods and breakfast sandwiches

Your right-hand man through so many bleary mornings has been scamming you all along. Eggs with toast or eggs, potatoes, and toast would be better, because then at least you’re getting nutrients that the body actually does need.

2.TONS OF MEAT

If you start craving large quantities of meat come lunchtime, take a rain check, as it’s liable to take your migraine up to an 11. You could be in a world of pain. If you’re just eating high protein and not including any carbohydrates your blood sugar can be low from drinking. That could definitely make a headache worse.

3.MULTIPLE CUPS OF COFFEE
Here’s the good news: Having small to normal amounts of caffeine for a hangover can help you feel better and get over that headache . In says you might need a reasonably-strong cup or two of coffee to stave off withdrawal torture if you consume coffee on the regularly . But limit yourself to  300mg of caffeine or suffer the horrors of dehydration.

Now here are some great foods to eat.

4. Avocado

Heavy drinking can deplete the mineral potassium, which is an essential electrolyte that maintains cellular fluid homeostasis. This can lead to muscle spasms, dizziness, and weakness, but luckily this superfood will counteract that. It’s also chock-full of fiber, B6, carotenoids, and heart-healthy fats, and as an added bonus, enables neuromuscular function, proper heart function, muscle contraction, and keeps sodium at bay.

5. Fatty Acids like salmon or tuna :

The B vitamins found in fatty fishes like salmon may alleviate any deficiency (especially of thiamine) related to drinking. More of a tuna salad kind of guy? Go for it, as tuna  along with sardines, mackerel, and herring — is another good-for-you fatty fish.

6.Coconut water

For a quick pick-me-up and major potassium boost sip on a cold glass of coconut water. With more potassium than a banana or a sports drink, coconut water works like magic. With its low sugar high  electrolyte content, your  hangover will  be gone in no time.  The sweet, nutty taste will curb your sugar craving with just the right amount of carbs and calories to prevent sugar overload. If you’re not a fan of coconut water, stop by a local grocery store and get some pedialyte ( it has tons of electrolytes and isn’t just for babies).

7 Fruits like watermelon, grapefruit, or strawberries, and veggies like celery, radishes, or cucumbers, are great choices to get you extra hydrated while enjoying brunch; consider opting for a vegetable omelet with a side of fruit salad. Just remember that the celery stalk in that Bloody Mary won’t really count — the alcohol and salt content in those most-delicious morning cocktails will undo all the good a watery vegetable can offer.

8. Sweet potatoes

Since alcohol intoxication can wreak havoc on blood sugar metabolism, it’s important to consume unrefined, complex carbohydrates like sweet potatoes. Unrefined carbs contain a long chain of sugar molecules that the liver gradually breaks down, preventing a spike in blood sugar. Sweet potatoes are also an excellent source of dietary fiber, potassium, beta-carotene, and B vitamins. So instead of reaching for a donut or croissant,  get  some sweet potatoes.

9. Eggs

Be sure to enjoy the yolk, as it contains a treasure trove of essential nutrients like calcium, vitamin D, and brain-boosting acetylcholine. Even more, one egg will also provide you with 33% of your daily value for B12! This means that a three-egg breakfast sandwich is totally justified.

10 Green juice

A night of over-imbibing can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, and irritability due to dehydration and a loss of electrolytes and sodium. A vegetable cocktail. While you’re at it, pick up a small coffee and a green juice. A small amount of caffeine will help to ease the throbbing in your head, and the green juice will give you a dose of pain-relieving minerals like magnesium, and offer some much-needed hydration along the way.

One last thing to add, to get over your hangover even faster, is to start your morning with an electrolyte replenishing solution like the Sunday Morning Hangover helper, to help kick start your day and feel better faster.
