The best way to prevent a hangover is to drink in moderation, or not at all. But you’re probably not reading this article for that advice, right? As the saying goes “prevention is better than cure” – especially when you need to be on top form for that long-awaited family lunch tomorrow afternoon!
While the vitamins and minerals we discuss are not going to protect your body from the damaging effects of alcohol and they’re certainly not a hangover cure -they could help support your body’s normal metabolism (ideally taken before, during, or directly after drinking so that they are available if needed) and help beat those hangover blues!
B vitamins are very important for your body’s metabolism of nutrients, some of which are particularly important when it comes to alcohol.
Large volumes of alcohol consumption increases the loss of water and vital nutrients (you can guess how ;)). Taking Vitamin B complex, which includes vitamin B-1 or thiamine, B-2 or riboflavin, folic acid, B-6 and B-12 may help alleviate hangover symptoms. B vitamins are vital components for keeping your liver working and alcohol can increase your body’s requirement of them.
Suplibox’s B-Complex is optimised to contain 100% of your recommended daily intake and is formulated with antioxidants for added health benefits and to ensure maximum stability, preventing degredation until you're ready to take it.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Its main function is to clear up “reactive oxygen species”, also known as free radicals.
You’re probably more used to knowing about vitamin C with its role in the immune system than to do with alcohol and hangovers. Vitamin C has an important role in your immune system; wound healing and collagen production.
Aside from this, it’s a powerful antioxidant. In fact, it works in harmony with Vitamin E because one of its functions is to restore and regenerate the antioxidant function of vitamin E.
Drinking alcohol increases the production of free-radicals which react with the cells they come into contact with. Antioxidants like Vitamin E neutralise free-radicals and may be beneficial in nullifying those awful hangovers.
Suplibox’s Antioxidants contains hydroxytyrosol, one of the most potent natural antioxidants, which surpasses even the antioxidant capacity of vitamins E and C. Our formulation contains no unnecessary fillers and is ideal for vegans.
Drinking a lot of alcohol and going to bed early do not necessarily go hand in hand. However, getting plenty of sleep can help reduce the effects of a hangover the following day.
Alcohol can have a negative impact on both the quality and duration of sleep. Taking magnesium before bed after a night of drinking, which is lost at an alarming rate during alcohol consumption is crucial to energy production and sleep regulation and will help you get some much needed R&R to aid your recovery!
Suplibox’s Magnesium Complex uses magnesium in glycinate form as it is gentle on the stomach and the body finds it easier to consume the mineral in this form. It also contains vitamin D3, which works synergistically with magnesium to aid muscle, bone and joint function.
