SaltStick and Alcohol:

Alcohol is a diuretic, which when consumed in excess can quickly make you dehydrated, and a hangover is the result of its negative effects on the body. Some of these symptoms like nausea directly result from the disruption of cellular processes, while others, such as dizziness, fatigue and headaches, are more indirect and could be caused by dehydration.

Hydration is the result of proper amounts of both water and electrolytes in the body, and in order to reduce hangover symptoms, you’ll need to restore levels of both. Read more about the relationship between electrolytes and hangover severity below: 

  • Study 1: Fruit can reduce the severity of a hangover: In 1976, researchers found that consumption of fruits, fruit juices or other fructose-containing foods is reported to decrease hangover intensity. Fruit is also a great source of several electrolytes, most notably potassium. SaltStick Products contain a broad spectrum of electrolytes, including potassium, calcium and magnesium. 
  • Study 2: Electrolyte-enhanced beer can help prevent a hangover: Additionally, in a study out of the Griffith University Health Institute, researchers found they could reduce the severity of a hangover in patients when they added electrolytes and reduced the alcohol content of beer. Luckily, you don’t need fancy electrolyte-induced beer to obtain the same results. By drinking more water during your night out and consuming a source of electrolytes before bed, you can effectively reach a similar outcome.

Use it today! From personal experience, we make sure to consume two SaltStick Capsules and a glass of water after a night of drinking, and we’ve noticed the hangover symptoms are all but gone the next day.
