Five Hangover Busting Ingredients

Five Hangover Busting Ingredients


Potion Life’s top five hangover-busting ingredients

No-one likes having a hangover. Whilst it may have been good fun the night before, waking up with a queasy stomach, dry mouth and aching head isn’t really much fun. 

When it comes to hangovers, it can often feel that there is nothing in the world that is going to help you (perhaps apart from hiding in a dark cave) however, this isn’t something that we believe to be true.

We developed After Party to alleviate and soothe some of the main issues that come with hangovers and have you feeling a few steps closer to your normal self in no time. But how do we do this? 

The secret is all in the ingredients. The list features a few different vitamins and minerals that are going to be just what your body needs to repair and replenish. So, what are they and how do they help? 


Vitamin C

One of the main parts of getting over a hangover is down to your liver. Your liver needs to process all the alcohol that you have taken in and this isn’t that simple a job. One way that you can help to stimulate your liver and of course speed up the process is to make sure that you take in some powerful antioxidant vitamin C. Vitamin C will help your liver to do its job and go some way to helping you feel better. 

Vitamin B

Alcohol, no matter which form you take it in, is a diuretic, which means that you are going to be frequenting the toilet more and in turn losing more of those valuable nutrients and vitamins too. One of the most important vitamins that you need in your body is the vitamin B group. One of the most important is B12, as it helps your brain and nervous system to function, which in turn can help your body to battle the horror of the hangover. Our B vitamin complex also helps release energy from food which helps your energy levels.


As we have already discovered, the key to beating a hangover is to help your body (and your mind) to battle the side effects of overindulgence.  Another great helping hand comes from a spice that you all too often may see in your cupboard. Turmeric is known to contain curcumin and it is this that will assist in mopping up any of the acid that could be left from the alcohol, as well as chasing away those feeling of nausea too. Exactly what you are going to need in your life after a heavy night. 



The Indian Gooseberry, Amla is another way to help fortify your liver and in turn help it process your hangover as best it can. Not only this but this particular berry is able to help food absorption when you eat as well as balancing any stomach acids that may feel like they are sloshing around. 

Magnesium and Potassium

These electrolyte mineral replace the minerals lost through drinking alcohol and help tackle your hangover. 

We have blended all these super nutrients into one bottle, After Party. Stock up now and enjoy your day after.
