Can taking nootropics help with a hangover ?
Have you wondered if taking nootropics would help with a hangover? Yes, they can. Combining New Mood and Alpha Brain supplements are just what you need to restore lost brain function due to over exertion.
You took it to far and now you are suffering
Most people have experienced a hangover at one time or another and wondered what they could do about it. Perhaps you've experienced a headache, upset stomach, sensitivity to light and sound, excess breathing and fast heart beat or arrhythmias. No doubt you've experienced being incredibly thirsty, dizzy, have diarrhea and terribly hungry yet can't stand the sight of food. It's just all about feeling bad and you swear you'll never do it again.
Depressed and lacking mental clarity.
Well, there are some things you can do to recuperate faster. Consider taking all natural New Mood and Alpha Brain together to relieve these symptoms.The main cause of a hangover is that the ethanol you drank increases urine production eliminating fluids from your body effectively dehydrating you. Along with excess urine production you lose minerals such as magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium. Meanwhile, your liver is trying to convert the alcohol you drank into acetaldehyde which is highly toxic and then breaking down acetaldehyde into acetic acid. Furthermore, your liver is diverting glucose stores from other tissues to keep your brain functioning leaving you in a compromised position in terms of over all energy availability as well as mentally depressed and lacking mental clarity.
You've lost a lot of water, minerals, vitamins, sugar, amino acids (proteins) and glutathione. Not to mention that the breakdown of ethanol requires two molecules of the coenzyme Vitamin B12. You have depleted your B12 stores and damaged enzymes needed to run your metabolism. Natural supplements that support brain function or nootropics can help put you back on track by replenishing minerals, vitamins, sugars, amino acids, antioxidants and other molecules that will help restore balance and repair tissue and organ damage. New MoodTM contains a proprietary blend of 5-HTP, L-Tryptophan, niacin, magnesium, Vitamin D3, chamomile, Vitamin B6, Passion root, Valerian Root, Lemon Balm and Jujube seed extract and Alpha BrainTM contains Alpha-GPC, Huperzine, Bacopa and GABA. Basically, these nootropics are all you need to restore balance to lost brain function.
The B-Vitamin importance
Niacin (Vitamin B3) is important for the production of energy by the breakdown of glucose to generate ATP through the Tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) and electron transport system (ETS). Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) has many functions but is important for making the neurotransmitters serotonin and GABA. Serotonin is known as the feel good transmitter and GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter responsible for keeping the brain from getting over excited. A lack of these B vitamins brings about depression and fatigue however, New MoodTM has you covered.
The botanicals Chamomile, Passion root, Valerian root, lemon balm and Jujube seed extract found in New Mood contain a wide range of antioxidants responsible for scavenging free radicals and protecting your cells from oxidative damage. Alcohol consumption generates many free radicals in the body and brain. These herbal extracts come to the rescue and repair damaged molecules. Alcohol consumption also impairs absorption of many essential vitamins and minerals by the intestine such as B vitamins and magnesium. Chamomile, Valerian root and Lemon balm restore normal gastrointestinal function allowing for proper absorption of minerals and vitamins so New Mood comes to the rescue again. Valerian root is used as a substitute for benzodiazepines without side effects. Valeria promotes peaceful sleep and calm state (anti-anxiety). Apigenin found in valerian root is responsible for these medicinal benefits by binding to the benzodiazepine site on GABA A channels allowing for extended inhibition of these neurons to excitatory inputs by holding the channel open longer which allows for more negative chloride ions to flow into the neuron. So Valerian root is a quick fix for your hangover by promoting a relaxed brain and sense of well being.
Alpha BRAIN and nootropics to the resque
There is a major connection between alcohol consumption and destruction of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Now, Alpha Brain comes to the rescue with Alpha-GPC (alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine. Alpha-GPC is a precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is the most bioavailable form of choline. This allows for acetylcholine to be produced fairly quickly replenishing the depleted stores. Acetylcholine is involved in short-term memory, focus, concentration and cognition. More acetylcholine around means you will return to normal faster in terms of mental clarity, concentration, cognition and recall. Moreover, alcohol alters the fluidity of neuronal membranes. Alpha-GPC can also donate a choline to form phosphatidylcholine which is a major membrane component that maintains proper membrane fluidity, transmitter release and important for the import and export of molecules.
Given that Huperzine-A is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, it allows acetylcholine to remain in the synaptic cleft longer increasing signal transduction. This is important when little acetylcholine is around which may occur with excessive imbibing of alcohol. Bacopa comes to the rescue by containing powerful antioxidants that scavenge free radicals that have been produced during the break down of alcohol effectively restoring enzyme function. Alpha Brain also contains GABA an inhibitory neurotransmitter responsible for keeping the brain from getting over excited creating a calming effect and sense of well being assisting in making your hangover go away. So, Alpha Brain has the ability to calm the brain, enhance memory and learning by increasing focus and concentration. New Mood provides 5-HTP, vitamin Bs and magnesium the precursors for serotonin production which elevates and stabilizes mood combating depression and mood swings. The botanicals act synergistically with the increased levels of serotonin. Furthermore, these two Onnit products may act as a hangover cure by replenishing lost stores of essential nutrients due to the metabolism of alcohol.
