You overdid it a bit last night and now you feel miserable. You’re suffering from a condition called “acute alcohol withdrawal” – more popularly known as a hangover.
Don’t get sidelined by headaches, nausea, and brain fog. Let us help you feel better fast! We’ll speak softly and start rapidly rehydrating your body.
We give you back the vitamins and minerals your body may be missing after last night, and top it off with a generous helping of antioxidants to get you feeling like new again.
Alcohol induces a state of dehydration in the body by inhibiting the hormone ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) secreted by the pituitary gland. This causes frequent urination, hence all the trips you make to the bathroom while drinking. Aggressive re-hydration is very important in acute alcohol withdrawal recovery.
When you drink, it increases your levels of oxidative stress. This puts your mitochondria—the energy factories in our cells that produce ATP—under duress. In times of heightened oxidative stress your cells are exposed to high levels of oxidants and free radicals, increased hydrogen peroxide production and decreased nitric oxide production—a molecule which is key in keeping our blood vessels open and allowing adequate blood flow to tissues.
