Hangovers – How Vitamins Can Help
Hangovers. Can’t live with them and can certainly live without them. But what actually happens to your body that leaves you feeling so terrible is so many ways after a night of heavy drinking? Hangovers are caused by the overconsumption of alcohol. Too many shots, an entire bottle of wine or the mixing of too many different types of alcohol and leave you waking up with a terrible headache and fatigue. If it’s really bad, nausea and vomiting join the unwelcome party. Not to mention the dreadful feelings of anxiety, regret, shame and embracement.
What about drinking too much alcohol makes you feel so miserable?
Alcohol make a person urinate more, depleting them of fluids and electrolytes. Dehydration leads to thirst weakness, dryness of mucus membranes, dizziness and lightheadedness
Alcohol can cause stomach irritation, leading to nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Low Blood Sugar
The over consumption of alcohol inhibits glucose production causing the symptoms of low blood sugar, such as fatigue, weakness and mood disturbances.
Usually of shorter duration and poorer quality, an alcohol induced sleep causes the fatigue experienced during a hangover.
Alcohol consumption affects histamine, serotonin, and prostaglandins. Couple that with the vasodilation alcohol intoxication causes, plus dehydration, you have a pretty unrelenting headache.
