Anti Hangover - Does it work?

But does it really work?

The Anti Hangover is a hangover remedy that works on multiple aspects of a hangover.

  • The taurine helps cell hydration, and improves recovery. The headaches that are a common symptom of the hangover, is often a result of dehydration. The body flushes toxins (aka alcohol) out with water, and you end up super thirsty. Taurine helps keep the water inside your cells if you take it the night before, and helps put it back into your cells if you have it the morning after. Multiple studies [1][2][3] also showed that fats build up in the liver when drinking, slowing dow the liver while it tries to process the alcohol and taurine can reverse that.
  • The honey raises the blood sugar, which is usually low after some drinks. Low blood sugar gives you that shaky feeling, and your brain no work good, and it can contribute to your headache. But usually, one feels nauseous after a big night, so the last thing you feel like is eating. That's where the honey comes in. And studies have shown[4] it can actually help you lose weight and improve your cholesterol.
  • Cinnamon reduces blood pressure. Alcohol raises the blood pressure, i.e. it constricts your blood vessels. High blood pressure then causes headaches. Cinnamon is a vasodilator, so it opens up the blood vessels, allowing your blood to carry oxygen around and nutrients to feel better fast. And some guys with glasses and white coats proved this too. [5]
  • Ginger eases nausea. Since your blood sugar is low, this can cause feelings of nausea. But the way to get your blood sugar up is by putting something good in your mouth, like food, and when you're nauseous that's the last thing you feel like. Ginger eases nausea, so you can eat, and fell better faster. The guys in the lab said "The best available evidence demonstrates that ginger is an effective and inexpensive treatment for nausea and vomiting and is safe." [6]
  • Himalayan salt with polyhalite helps replenish electrolytes. Electrolytes help rehydration, as well as being essential minerals for bodily functions. As the scientists say "Salt is an essential electrolyte to life in human beings." [7]
