Celebration Recovery FAQS
WHAT CAUSES THE ILL EFFECTS BROUGHT ON FROM CELEBRATION?
If you’ve had a big night on the town, there are a multitude of chemical and physical processes occurring that can make you feel nauseated, dehydrated and fatigued.
First, it is important to know that only 10 percent of alcohol leaves your system via breath, sweat and urine. The remaining 90 percent is metabolized by your body and consequently, toxic compounds are released which need to be flushed out of our system allowing for ultimate recovery.
Dehydration is one of the most significant symptoms caused from celebration. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means that your body uses more water to process the alcohol than you get from the drinks, leaving you feeling dehydrated in the morning. And, the alcohol itself causes chemical changes in your body that increase how much water your body expels through urination. The resulting dehydration contributes to weakness, headaches and other symptoms.
Some of the weakness and shakiness you feel after celebrating may come from a drop in blood sugar. Your liver uses sucrose to process alcohol. After several drinks, you may begin to feel the effects of hypoglycemia, or very low blood sugar levels. This can also make you feel more tired and affect your mood.
As your liver processes alcohol, it’s producing a chemical byproduct called acetaldehyde, a toxin that is 30 times more damaging to your body than the alcohol itself. The presence of acetaldehyde in your body can contribute to some of the symptoms brought on from celebration.
Alcohol also irritates the lining of your stomach. It increases stomach acid production that can lead to abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting.
So, as good as that wine tasted with dinner, if you’re going to enjoy more than one or two drinks, enjoy a chilled bottle of RESQWATER Proactive Recovery daily, or during and after your next celebration to help detox, recover and perform.
HOW DO I FEEL BETTER AFTER CELEBRATING?
The best course of action is prevention and taking steps to mitigate symptoms.
One easy prevention method is to eat before drinking. Eating foods high in fiber, protein and fat will help. Fatty foods moderate the body’s absorption of alcohol and high-fiber foods can help break down and absorb alcohol in your stomach, keeping it from reaching the bloodstream as quickly.
Take vitamin C and a B mixture. Vitamin C is good for just about everything and B vitamins help process carbs and other sugars and starches that are commonly found in alcohol.
And, of course, if you’ve decided to have a few drinks, enjoy a chilled bottle of RESQWATER Proactive Recovery during and after your next celebration to help detox, recover and perform.
HOW DOES RESQWATER PROACTIVE RECOVERY HELP YOU FEEL BETTER AFTER CELEBRATING?
There’s no denying that after we’ve been out celebrating, our body may feel like it has been working overtime to help during the recovery process. RESQWATER Proactive Recovery and New RESQWATER Sugar Free contain natural and organic ingredients, N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), no stimulants, and are certified Kosher, Gluten Free and Vegan to help replenish nutrients and flush toxins which can allow for ultimate recovery.
First off, every bottle of RESQWATER Proactive Recovery contains 8 oz of water, which helps prevent dehydration during and after drinking. Your body may use more water during celebration recovery which needs to be replenished.
We’ve also included an ingredient called N-acetyl Cysteine, or NAC, that helps convert all that acetaldehyde into harmless acetic acid. NAC binds with acetaldehyde which is s toxic compound produced when your body is working overtime during celebration.
RESQWATER includes milk thistle, which has been known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, to help reduce swelling and to promote healthy liver function. We’ve also added organic prickly pear cactus fruit extract, which can decrease inflammation and reduce nausea and upset stomach, sucrose from organic cane sugar (found in our regular RESQWATER formula) to help replenish sugar levels, electrolytes to help keep muscular and nervous systems in shape, and B vitamins to help prevent the depletion of glutathione. The premium ingredients in RESQWATER Proactive Recovery help detox, recover and perform!
WHY DO DIFFERENT ADULT BEVERAGES CAUSE VARYING WAYS OF FEELING LOUSY FOLLOWING CELEBRATING?
No matter what your choice of alcohol is when celebrating, if you overdo it, you’re going to feel it the next morning. But keeping in mind what you’re drinking can help with hangovers.
Drinks with a higher concentration of congeners have been found to cause more severe hangover symptoms. Congeners are the impurities left over, or sometimes added to alcohol in the production and distillation process. The congeners account for the various flavors, colors and odors of different alcohols. Congeners are toxic and can interfere with cell function.
Generally speaking, darker liquors — such as bourbon, brandy and whiskey — and beers and red wine have higher congener counts than clear liquors — rum, vodka and gin — and white wines.
One other tip to note is the carbonation in beer will speed up the absorption of alcohol so drinking beer before liquor may decrease the body’s ability to process alcohol resulting in more severe hangovers. Hence, “Beer before liquor you’ve never been sicker. Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear.”
