What is a hangover?
It’s a feeling of illness caused by excess consumption of alcohol. When one consumes an excess amount of alcohol, a chain of reaction within the body is triggered that results in different effects, collectively called as a hangover.
Alcohol irritates the mucosal lining of the stomach, eliciting a response that leads to nausea. It also brings about hypoglycemia or low blood sugar level condition, evokes an inflammatory response, and causes dehydration and vasodilatation of blood vessels.
These all reactions evoke effects like mental fog, headache, fatigue, muscle pain and decreased appetite.
