A hangover is characterized by the constellation of unpleasant physical and mental symptoms that occur after a bout of moderate to heavy alcohol drinking.
Alcohol consumption in excess will lead to dehydration, metabolic toxicity and malnutrition which in turn lead to a hangover and its many usavory effects.
The following chart demonstrates the relationship between excess alcohol and a hangover.
DEHYDRATION - Alcohol affects the secretion of the hormone ADH in the brain. This results in increase urine production and volume loss.
TOXICITY - First, an enzyme (alcohol dehydrogenase) metabolizes alcohol to an intermediate product, acetaldehyde; then a second enzyme [ALDH]) metabolizes acetaldehyde to acetate. These byproducts of alcohol metabolism have been implicated in the toxicities associated with alcohol consumption.
MALNUTRITION - Regular Alcohol consumption may lead to malabsorption of critical water soluble vitamins, electrolytes and minerals leading to malnutrition, anemia, nerve damage and osteoporosis
The mechanism of action of EON is multi-faceted and directed a the primary contributing factors associated with the cause of hangover in general and not only the symptoms of a hangover.
Possible contributing factors to hangover include the direct effects of alcohol such as dehydration & electrolyte imbalances.
In addition it is widely recognized that there are inherent metabolic processes associated with the breakdown of alcohol resulting in acetaldehyde toxicity.
There are factors other than alcohol, which may also contribute to hangover symptoms including congeners or additives such as Methanol.
So the name of the game is Pre-Covery. EON helps to prevent both the causes and symptoms of a hangover by: REHYDRATION, PREVENTION, and REPLENISHMENT.
REHYDRATION- Using the same concept found in the best hospitals across the country, EON has been developed to be a low osmolality precovery/ recovery beverage, which facilitates maximum absorption of fluid in the gut thereby preventing dehydration through excessive fluid loss in the kidneys.
PREVENTION - PREVENTION OF UNFAVORALE METABOLIC PROCESSES LEADING TO ACETYLADLDEHYDE TOXICITY via mitigation of toxicity through biochemistry. The ANTIOXIDANT effects of Thiamine (Vitamin B-1), Vitamin C, B-1, B-6, B-9, B-12, and Zinc and other carefully chosen ingredients of EON negate the symptoms of these unfavorable byproducts.
REPLENISHMENT - EON works towards the PREVENTION OF MALABSORPTION & MALNUTRITION via the replenishment of necessary vitamins, minerals & electrolytes otherwise lost as a result of alcohol consumption.
EON was developed by a medical doctor to prevent the symptoms of alcohol hangovers.
