What Causes a Hangover?

What if I told you that enjoying a few (not a 6-pack) of your favorite alcoholic beverages is totally fine and won’t lead to the dreaded hangover, acid reflux, indigestion, grogginess, etc., the next day?

Sounds like a true holiday miracle. It’s actually just science with a bit of magic thrown in. And by magic, I mean instantly kicking alcohol’s acid with 5 drops of Acid-Kicking Alcohol Alkalizer. 

This year, you can really get into the holiday ‘spirits’ without the hangover. The best gift ever.

But first, let’s answer the question: What causes a hangover? Because the more you know, the better decisions you can make to enjoy optimal health…even with a few glasses of Chardonnay, yay!

What causes a hangover?

Yep, acid is usually the villain behind most health problems. You don’t die from old age. You die from too much inflammation—which comes from acid.

Your body wasn’t designed to handle the immense amounts of poisonous, inflammatory acid in alcohol and mixers such as soda. It destroys your gut (aka your immune system) and stresses your liver.

Acid is so strong that it can punch a hole in metal. Picture that. No wonder your body retaliates with a hangover and all the symptoms that come with it: headache, nausea, vertigo, depression, rapid heartbeat, excessive sweating, etc.

The acid in alcohol also increases urination and releases fluids like sweat. Ever notice how often you visit the bathroom while drinking? Your body is desperate to release the toxins. Dehydration results in fatigue, headaches, constipation, dizziness, etc., all hangover symptoms. 

The acid in alcohol also interferes with brain activity, leading to sleep deprivation. You may fall asleep faster after drinking alcohol, but the sleep is fragmented. You never reach the deep REM cycle state needed to feel energized the next day. 

I could go on and on, but you get the point. However, if you are curious to learn more about getting off your acid and living your best health ever—please read my blog and follow me on Instagram and Facebook.

All of this to say…we are human and still enjoy a boozy beverage. I get it—which is why I invented SOLUTIONS.

Proven SOLUTIONS For Preventing Hangovers

Go on and thoroughly enjoy a few glasses; I really mean it. Just be strategic with reducing inflammatory acid and restoring your body with proven solutions. 

  • Acid-Kicking Alcohol Alkalizer: Just add 5 drops to every drink, and the acid will be instantly neutralized. BAM. The damaging effects of alcohol have basically evaporated. Get all the details via this video and this blog post.

  • Acid-Kicking Minerals: Drink one scoop before bedtime. Your body requires minerals to function (learn why here), and one scoop will help you not feel hungover the next day. If you are dealing with weak bones, brain fog, skin issues, depression, nausea, hormonal problems, acid reflux, poor sleep, etc., you are most likely NOT getting enough minerals for OPTIMAL physical and mental performance. 

  • Acid-Kicking Magnesium: As mentioned above, poor sleep is a cause of hangover symptoms. But magnesium calms your nervous system, relaxes your muscles, and maintains your body’s GABA levels so that you can have the best sleep ever. Click here for more sleep hacks.
