What is Dehydration?

Those who drink to excess often face dehydration when the body loses more fluids than it takes in resulting in a headache, nausea, impaired mental function, lack of energy, dizziness and irritability - telltale symptoms of a hangover.  Because we are made up of mostly water and electrolytes, we need to maintain the proper balance of these in our bodies.  Electrolytes are critical minerals like sodium, potassium and calcium that help maintain healthy fluid levels especially during or after the process of drinking too much.  

What are Electrolytes?

Electrolytes are minerals essential to your health.  They help carry electrical signals that power your nerves and muscles, maintain your blood's proper pH, and balance fluids in your body.  

How to Replace Electrolytes?

Just drinking water isn't enough because water doesn't contain enough electrolytes.  We need both water and electrolytes for proper hydration.  Hangover Hammer contains the proper balance of electrolytes in order to rehydrate and recover faster.  

 

What is a hangover and what are it's symptoms?

Hangovers vary from person to person but usually involve a headache, nausea, impaired mental function, lack of energy, dizziness, irritability and dehydration.  One of the main causes of a hangover is ethanol - the alcohol in your drinks.  It's a toxic chemical that works in the body as a diuretic which means it makes you urinate more and can result in becoming dehydrated.  Dehydration is the one of the main causes of your hangover symptoms.
