Just because you forgot to take your Hangover Patch last night doesn’t mean you have to suffer today. We care about your well-being, and a few tips and tricks on how to avoid your hangover now can go a long way.
What makes us feel hungover?
To understand how to prevent a hangover, you have to know why you’re experiencing one to begin with. Yes, we know you drank alcohol…. what we are talking about is what’s going on inside your body that's causing you to feel like keeling over for the rest of time.
That regrettable feeling you get when you wake up after a night of drinking is due to the impacts of alcohol on your system, including dehydration and other chemical exchanges that cause adverse reactions.
Alcohol causes you to urinate more frequently, speeding up dehydration and leaving you lightheaded, dizzy, and thirsty.
Drinking can lower your blood sugar and cause weakness, shakiness, and fatigue.
Alcohol can irritate the lining of your stomach and increase stomach acid, causing nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
Drinking causes your blood vessels to expand, which may give you a headache.
Alcohol can disrupt your sleep, so even though it may make you sleepy you’ll still wake up tired and groggy.
