Prevent Your Next Hangover with Shifted Hydration
Hangovers suck. The day after a night out can be hell.
Between fatigue, a terrible headache and puking, nothing is worse.
But we have some good news and bad news.
First, the good news: you can drastically and naturally minimize the effects of your hangover by hydrating both before and after your night out and by drinking lots of electrolytes and anti-oxidants.
With SHIFTED Hydration you get an industry leading formulat that includes 3 full grams of Hydration supporting and anti-inflammatory ingredients. It should be your first line of defense against a hangover.
The bad news is that you can't out-hydrate a complete blackout. So some moderation is always important.
How Hangovers Happen and How to Beat Them
So why do hangovers happen?
The two big causes of a hangover are dehydration and inflammation.
Basically, alcohol causes excess loss of water and electrolytes, most notably magnesium, phosphate and calcium.
So here's how to beat a hangover:
1) Drink lots of water before you go out drinking
2) Take an electrolyte and anti-oxidant supplement before you go out drinking
3) Drink lots of water after you go out drinking
4) Take an electrolyte and anti-oxidant supplement after you got out drinking.
This ensures that you go into your festivities at a good baseline and that you replinish what's lost quicker. The result is effective hangover prevention, and faster recovery for even the worst of them.

How ElectroLytes Help Prevent Hangovers
Electrolytes are ions that are essential for proper bodily function. They help to regulate hydration, maintain the balance of fluids in the body, and support nerve and muscle function. When we consume alcohol, it can lead to dehydration because alcohol is a diuretic, which means it causes the body to produce more urine than usual, leading to fluid loss.
One common symptom of a hangover is dehydration, which can cause headaches, fatigue, and other unpleasant symptoms (what we usually call a hangover). Replenishing the body's electrolytes can help to combat dehydration and alleviate hangover symptoms. This is because electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium, help to retain water in the body, which can help to restore fluid balance and reduce the severity of hangover symptoms.
Drinking fluids that contain electrolytes, such as sports drinks, pomegranate juice or coconut water, can help to replenish electrolytes lost through alcohol consumption and promote hydration. Additionally, consuming foods that are rich in electrolytes, such as bananas and leafy greens, can also help to replenish the body's stores.
While electrolytes may not completely cure a hangover, they can certainly help to alleviate some of the symptoms and promote faster recovery. However, it's important to note that the best way to prevent a hangover is to drink alcohol in moderation and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the night.
How Pomegranate Juice Helps Alleviate Hangovers
Pomegranate juice is also a popular drink for dealing with a hangover due to its potential ability to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body. When we consume alcohol, it can cause inflammation and oxidative damage to our cells, which can contribute to hangover symptoms such as headache, nausea, and fatigue.
Pomegranate juice contains high levels of antioxidants, including polyphenols and anthocyanins, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These compounds may help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress caused by alcohol consumption, which can alleviate hangover symptoms.
Additionally, pomegranate juice is also rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and potassium, which can help to replenish electrolytes lost during alcohol consumption and promote hydration.
SHIFTED Hydration has 500mg of Pomegranate Juice Extract.
How Coconut Water Helps Prevent Hangovers
Coconut water is a popular natural supplement for a hangover due to its potential ability to rehydrate the body and replenish electrolytes lost through alcohol consumption.
Coconut water is a natural source of electrolytes, including potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which are essential for proper hydration and nerve and muscle function. Replenishing the body's electrolytes can help to restore fluid balance and reduce the severity of hangover symptoms such as headache, fatigue, and nausea.
Additionally, coconut water is also rich in antioxidants, which may help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress caused by alcohol consumption.
SHIFTED Hydration contains 500mg of Coconut Water Extract.
How Vitamin C Helps Mitigate Hangovers
Some research suggests that vitamin C may help alleviate certain hangover symptoms, such as nausea, headache, and fatigue. Alcohol consumption can lead to oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help to reduce these effects.
Vitamin C is also involved in the metabolism of alcohol in the body and may help to reduce the toxicity of alcohol. Additionally, alcohol consumption can lead to depletion of vitamin C levels in the body, and supplementing with vitamin C may help to restore these levels.
How Taurine Helps With Hangovers
Taurine promotes hydration by improving the body's ability to retain water.
Taurine is an amino acid that plays a role in regulating fluid balance in the body. It helps to transport water and electrolytes across cell membranes, which can improve the body's ability to retain water.
Additionally, taurine has been shown to have antioxidant properties that can help to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. These effects may help to improve cellular health and function, which can support overall hydration status.
SHIFTED Hydration contains 1 full gram of Taurine.

What The Ingredients do
If you're curious about what each of the ingredients do to help you recover from a hangover, we've listed all the effective ingredients below with explanations.
Taurine is an amino acid that plays a role in regulating fluid balance in the body. It helps to transport water and electrolytes across cell membranes, which can improve the body's ability to retain water. For this reason, it may help with hangovers by increasing hydration.
Zinc is an essential mineral that has antioxidant properties that can help to reduce oxidative stress in the body. Some studies have suggested that zinc may help to reduce the absorption of alcohol in the body, which could potentially prevent or reduce the severity of hangover symptoms.
Magnesium is an important electrolyte that is involved in regulating fluid balance in the body, and you may help prevent a hangover by replenishing magnesium levels that are lost through alcohol consumption.
Potassium is a critical electrolyte for many biological processe. Replenishing potassium stores both before and after a night of drinking may help to prevent or reduce the symptoms of a hangover.
Phosphorous is an essential electrolyte that can be lost while drinking alcohold. Replenishing this electrolyte can help your with your body's electrolyte blance and better manage water and hydration.
Some research suggest that essential minerals like Calcium are depleted by alcohol, and therefore replenishing these minerals in moderation can help alleviate the negative effects which manifest in a hangover.
Chloride is an essential electrolyte that is involved in regulating fluid balance and maintaining proper hydration in the body. Alcohol consumption often leads to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, and chloride may help to alleviate some hangover symptoms by helping to restore the body's electrolyte balance.
Vitamin C may help alleviate certain hangover symptoms, such as nausea, headache, and fatigue. Vitamin C is also involved in the metabolism of alcohol in the body and may help to reduce the toxicity of alcohol.
Sodium is an essential electrolyte that is involved in regulating fluid balance in the body, and it may help to alleviate some hangover symptoms such as dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.
Pomegranate Juice Extract
The headache part of a hangover is partly due to dehydration and partly due to inflammation. Pomegranate Juice Extract has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects as well as hydration supporting effects.
Coconut Water Extract
Coconut Water Extract is loaded with both electrolytes and anti-oxidants. These help counteract the two main causes of a hangover which are dehydration and inflammation. Electrolytes help with dehydration and anti-oxidants help prevent inflammation.
Electrolytes are essential to almost every cellular process in human beings. Alcohol depletes our electrolyte stores and when our bodies don't have enough electrolytes for basic biological functdions, we can feel worn down. Replenishing these electrolytes can help rejuvenate you after a night of drinking.
What exactly is a hangover?
A hangover is a collection of unpleasant physical and mental symptoms that can occur after drinking too much alcohol. These symptoms can vary from person to person, but often include headache, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, dehydration, and difficulty concentrating.
Hangovers typically occur when the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in the body falls to zero, which can happen several hours after the last drink. The severity of a hangover can depend on a variety of factors, including how much alcohol was consumed, how quickly it was consumed, and individual differences in metabolism and tolerance.
The exact cause of a hangover is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to a combination of factors, including dehydration, inflammation, and the toxic effects of alcohol and its metabolites. Hangovers are generally self-limiting and will resolve on their own within 24-48 hours, although there are things that can be done to alleviate the symptoms and speed up the recovery process, such as drinking plenty of water before and after drinking alcohol, topping off your electrolytes, drinking or eating anti-inflammatory foods, getting rest, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers.
Is There A Cure for Hangovers?
Any hangover cure needs to be based in the cause of a hangover. There are three main things you can do to prevent a hangover:
1) Drink less alcohol
2) Hydrate and Re-Hydrate
3) Take Anti-Oxidants and/or Anti-Inflammatory foods and supplements
A hangover is basically the state of being dehydrated and inflamed from too much alcohol and being in a toxic state. So a hangover cure should prevent dehydration and inflammation.
A hangover cure starts with being smart and planning your evening:
- hydrate to flush out toxins
- replenish electrolytes
- pace out your drinking
- keep hydrating
- go to bed well hydrated
- wake up and hydrate again
