A single night out with the girls or guys can do a lot more damage to your body than just a headache the next morning. In just ONE night of drinking, you can cause bacteria to leak from your stomach and harmful toxins to enter your bloodstream! AHHHH, scary I know but the truth is the truth and we are here to help alleviate this harm.
Excessive amounts of alcohol can cause dehydration to your body in a number of ways. Alcohol decreases the bodies ability to produce anti-diuretic hormones, which is used by the body to reabsorb water. With the lack of anti-diuretic hormone, your body loses more fluids through urination (which is why you constantly have to pee!). OMG - that makes so much sense!
Drinking too much can also cause an imbalance of cells that can lead to cramps and muscle pulls. It is possible to lose muscle mass from the consumption of alcohol, resulting in a lack of strength and performance.
Prevention: Try to drink as much water possible before and in between alcoholic beverages before you go to bed that night.
Prevention + HydraCharge can save your body and save your hangover. Kaged Muscle HydraCharge is a hydration & anti-oxidant supplement that tastes great and multiplies the amount of water you are drinking. I am no Bill Nye so don't quote me on this number but for every bottle of water you drink with HydraCharge, it multiplies it by at least 3x so start sipping. But in all seriousness, this formula will load your body up with electrolytes, hydration from the water, and the anti-oxidants will give your body a chance to speed up combating your hangover.

Alcohol causes the stomach and intestines to become inflamed, delaying the stomach of emptying. High levels of alcohol can result in the production of fatty liver and gastric acids. These factors are the cause of abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting during a hangover.
Drinking can affect the bodies ability to absorb vitamins and miners, leading to a deficient in nutrients. This may interfere with your body ability to control blood glucose, resulting in low blood sugar. Low blood sugar causes a lack of energy in peoples everyday lives. This is why eating before your night out is important. NO, drunk munchies do not count. I mean, when has anyone ever had a nutritional meal at 2am?
The best we can recommend in regards to vitamins and health would be.....drum roll....a vitamin for health.
