Before consuming alcohol

2. Choice of drink

Each alcoholic drink contains alcohol, but differs in the rest of the composition. And it is the rest of the composition that has the main word when it comes to hangovers.

They are called congeners. Meet. Under this name, other substances in the drink besides ethanol are hidden, which contribute to a hangover. In general, clear drinks (vodka) have the fewest, and dark drinks (bourbon) have the most.

Explanation: We could include, for example, methanol, amides, acetone, sulfur dioxide... They are mostly formed during the production of alcohol, they burden the organism, and studies dealing with hangovers agree that these substances are one of the main causes of hangovers. 

3. Smoking and drugs

Cigarette smoke contains acetaldehyde. Yes, the same substance that causes hangovers . So let's summarize: ingested ethanol in an alcoholic drink turns into acetaldehyde in the body. You can also increase its concentration in the body by smoking. This smells like a hangover!

If you are taking any medications, find out if you can drink alcohol with them. Alcohol can reduce their effect or even turn them into harmful substances.

4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

You can already see from the title how important the rule is. Continuously intersperse each alcohol with one non-alcohol (only 100-200 ml). In this way, you can drink half a liter in an evening, which is absorbed much better than if you drink it all at once. Dry mouth and headache the next day are symptoms of dehydration , which can be easily prevented.

Explanation: Alcohol causes dehydration - all evening (approx. 5 hours), water gets from important places in the body. It takes just as long, if not longer, to get her back. That's why it's not enough to drink when we wake up with a dry mouth or get thirsty in the morning.

5. Movement and fresh air

Movement during the evening speeds up the metabolism and, to a certain extent, speeds up the flushing of substances out of the body. Fresh air also helps with acute nausea. So at the next party , don't hesitate to dance your shoes off , you're actually doing it for your health!

Tip #2: If you have a Mindflow Hangover product, take 2 capsules after consumption. It replenishes vitamins and minerals overnight, protects the body and ensures a fresh morning.

Get some sleep. At least 7 hours. Fact. The body needs to regenerate and it does this best in sleep. Studies attribute many of the symptoms we perceive as hangover symptoms to sleep deficit.

It is a good idea to stop drinking alcohol at least an hour before going to bed. Treat yourself to quality sleeping conditions - go to the toilet in advance, close the blinds and turn off the ringing of the phone. And now, just let Mindflow Hangover do the work for you and enjoy a restful night and a fresh morning.
