As physicians we hear these complaints from our patients often. And, yes, we too have been known to have a cocktail or two and feel like it has wreaked havoc on our night’s sleep and the next day. So, what’s a person to do?
It turns out that we learned a few things in medical school that come in handy in preventing and treating the hangover.
How can you get the benefits of this hospital grade treatment for the toxic effects of alcohol in the comfort of your own home or place of work?
We decided to create our own version, in pill form. Our Recovery Act Situational Supplement is just that. It’s a little yellow pill that comes in a handy pocket sized pack. You can bring it out with you and start preventing your hangover before it happens. Take one pill with a large glass of water (the fluids are still important) early in the evening and then take another before bed. You will likely not even feel the need for another in the morning, but you can take one if needed.
So, how much is too much alcohol?
As physicians, it is our duty to tell you not to over do it with the alcohol. The recommended average for women is one drink per day and two drinks per day for men. However, we know that we are all bound to push our limits from time to time. Recovery Act is intended to help you feel your best despite indulging from time to time. It is the ideal blend of Thiamine, Folate ( B vitamins), and magnesium based on the magical Banana Bag components used by doctors everywhere to combat the toxic effects of alcohol.
What’s new in 2022?
It turns out that more and more data confirms the important role of vitamins and electrolytes to help combat the toxic effects of alcohol. Many vitamin combinations have been touted for this, but few with better proven effects. IV Vitamin shops are popping up in many locations but their benefit is questionable, their cost is great, and there are concerns about their safety and complications (getting a needle inserted into your vein is not necessary to provide you with the right nutrients as long as you are cable of eating and drinking). So skip the costly invasive route and stock up on some Recovery Act in additional to an all in one daily vitamin to feel your best.
