There’s a science to understanding the hangover, and an art to never suffering from one!
Science of Hangover Causes
We’ve all experienced that awful feeling in the morning after a night out drinking.
Hangovers are characterised by a list of awful symptoms experienced after consuming excessive alcohol. These symptoms may include headache, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, stomach discomfort, drowsiness and cognitive fuzziness.
The most familiar explanation for hangover causes include dehydration. This is because alcoholacts as a diuretic, and because people who are drinking heavily for hours probably aren’t drinking much water in that same time period. Yet, studies examining the link between dehydration and hangovers have shown surprising data, whereby it is likely that dehydration accounts for only some of the symptoms of a hangover and there are definitely other factors at play.
Additional Hangover causes include the build up of a toxic compound known as acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is a by-product of alcohol breakdown in the liver which is up to 30 times more toxic than alcohol itself and has been found to produce hangover-like symptoms in studies. Fortunately, there is a cure to this toxic substance. Research into Dihydromyricetin (DHM) which can be pulled from natural herbs such as Moyeam Tea & Oriental Raisin have shown to increase the body’s ability to process acetaldehyde. Hence, with the liver’s increased efficiency, hangover symptoms caused by the breakdown of alcohol can be reduced.
