Everyone has their own hangover cures, and a lot of them call for downing a sports drink (or even the kid's drink Pedialyte), to re-hydrate and get some much-needed electrolytes and vitamins into your system.
But some nights cause more damage, and call for more than a couple of aspirin and a Gatorade. So the next time you're trying to recover from a late night booze bender, and need to be on-the-ball the next morning, try a Code Blue instead.
A "recovery beverage", Code Blue uses science - instead of frat-house witch-doctory - to get you back in shape fast by hydrating, replenishing and detoxifying your body.
Like sports drinks, it gets fluids in there to help stop the headache that can be caused by dehydration, and it loads you with vitamins, minerals and electrolytes. But unlike sports drinks, it adds in Reduced Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that aids in liver function, helping to flush those extra dry martinis from your system quicker, and some Prickly Pear juice to boost your immune system and pump in some much needed Vitamins A and C.
And instead of the sugar you'll be ingesting with sports drinks, Code Blue uses Agave Nectar as a sweetener, with its added bonus of being a natural anti-inflammatory.
I got pretty banged up at a V-Day party this weekend, and I tried one when I got up Sunday afternoon. Let's just say the taste won't put Vitamin Water out of business, but it wasn't anywhere near as medicinal as I expected. And it helped quell the marching band in my head. I didn't make it to the gym, but I did make a NASCAR barbecue in decent shape. And according to company reps, drinking one before going out gives you extra protection. Now they need to come up with something that keeps us from drunk dialing ex girlfriends.
