Hangovers and supplements!

This time of year is filled with Christmas events, good food and of course plenty of booze. We all want to partake however what do we do about the dreaded hangover? Can the supplements we take to assist us in the gym be handy to get us over a hangover quicker?  

The majority of hangovers occur as a result of dehydration, so if we use supplements aimed at replenishing electrolytes, we can assist our body in re-hydrating and get on track to feeling better. Key electrolytes such as magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium have been proven to be faster acting at re-hydrating the body than plain water (https://www.bulknutrients.com.au/blog/the-best-supplements-to-help-cure-a-hangover/).

In addition to re-hydrating yourself, you’ll need to replenish your vitamin B12 as this gets flushed out when we are drinking alcohol and the frequent trips to the bathroom drinking involves. This is because alcohol is a diuretic, causing us to use the restroom frequently, this frequency causes a loss of water and vitamins (https://thechilltimes.com/the-holy-grail-supplements-to-ease-your-hangover/).   

One supplement that can achieve both of these elements is ON's Essential Amino Energy + Electrolytes! Each serving provides 100 mg of caffeine from natural sources to give you energy along with 5 grams of amino acids for muscle recovery support, essential after a night dancing away plus electrolytes to help replace what’s lost through dehydration. Try adding a 2-scoop serving to cold water for the perfect hangover cure!  Buy your's today - https://baguiosports.com/products/amino-tangerine-wave?_pos=3&_sid=345ec0b29&_ss=r
