How alcohol affects the body
Instead of having a productive day at work, study or simply needing to feel fresh and fit after a day or night of drinking, a hangover can get in the way. Some symptoms include headaches, nausea, stomach pain, dizziness, exhaustion, etc. The main cause of a hangover is the effect of ethanol – the alcohol in your drinks. It’s a toxic chemical that works in the body as a diuretic, which means it makes you urinate more, making you become dehydrated as a result. Alcohol is a depressant that affects your brain’s natural production/release of happiness chemicals, such as serotonin and dopamine. Sure, you may feel on top of the world whilst you are out drinking and celebrating, but you will likely be feeling the polar opposite when you wake up the next morning. This can lead to a lack of motivation, confidence, focus, and in some cases can make an individual feel anxious or even depressed. You know what they say, what goes up must come down!
How to enjoy a night of drinking without waking up with a hangover
The HappyHangover is an anti-hangover capsule specially designed for those who like to have a (responsible) drink but don’t want to feel the heavy effects the next day. These carefully assembled ingredients (bundled in vegan capsules) will help to prevent you from that horrible hungover feeling.
These capsules include the following: DHM, L-Glutamine, Rhodiola Rosea, Ginkgo Biloba and Magnesium.
How do these ingredients help prevent a hangover?
Dihydromyricetin, or DHM, is an extract from the Japanese Raisin Tree. It has been used for centuries as an anti-alcohol herb and hangover cure in Korean and Chinese traditional medicine. DHM impacts the way alcohol is processed in the brain through the GABA receptors. DHM binds to them, making less alcohol bind to the GABA receptors. A lot of the negative effects of a hangover come from getting drunk very fast and then sobering up fast. When your body can regulate alcohol slower, it will result in a significantly decreased hangover.
L-Glutamine is a type of amino acid that the body naturally creates and releases. However, when drinking alcohol, the body’s supply is reduced and it can aggravate your already inflamed stomach. It can also hinder the body’s recovery process, which you desperately need after a rough night to get you back on your feet. Increasing your glutamine levels while drinking can help you decrease a hangover and speed up your recovery rate.
Rhodiola Rosea is an antioxidant that has liver-protecting powers. Combined with its natural protection against dryness and dehydration, it makes the perfect supplement for treating hangover symptoms. Rhodiola can help restore an anabolic ratio of cortisol/ testosterone, which is otherwise altered by the effects of alcohol.
Ginkgo Biloba is one of the keys to our capsule mix. It hosts high levels of flavonoids and terpenoids – potent antioxidants that can provide protection against harmful free radicals, such as alcohol, that cause oxidative cell damage.
Magnesium supports the alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme that breaks down alcohol and eliminates it from the body. Additionally, drinking alcohol drains your body of its natural magnesium levels which is why it was important for us to include this in our special mixture.
How to use the HappyHangover in these 3 simple steps:
Step 1. Take 1 capsule before you drink.
Step 2. Take 1 capsule every 2 drinks.
Step 3. Take 2 capsules before bed.
Additional tips: Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water between each alcoholic beverage and before you go to bed. It is especially important to stay hydrated if you are drinking sugary alcoholic beverages. The combination of sugar and alcohol screams dehydration! Of course, these capsules will help decrease your hangover symptom significant, however, we always suggest pairing it with staying hydrated to ensure the best results.
Just as you should anyway before drinking alcohol, try to make sure you fill your belly with nourishing food before taking HappyHangover. These helpful tips will decrease your chances of a nasty hangover even more!
Lastly, don’t forget to stick with the dosing schedule or else they won’t be as effective!
The most difficult part is remembering to take them, especially after you are feeling the effects of alcohol. When you drink, you slow down the nerves that communicate with one another in the area of your brain called the hippocampus. This section of your brain is to thank for maintaining and forming memories. The more you drink, the more this section of your brain slows down. Eventually, it can completely shut down.
When you are with someone who is very drunk and they are repeating themselves a lot, eg, asking you the same question 3 times in a span of 5 minutes, this is their hippocampus slowly shutting down, making them suffer from short-term memory loss. This also explains why (when you get to a certain point in the night) you can ‘blackout’ causing you to have temporary amnesia and wake up in the morning with a chunk of the night missing from your memory. This would be your hippocampus shutting down completely for that period of time.
That being said, make sure you remember to stick to your schedule! Putting a timer on your phone helps with this. This is extremely important!
