Hangover Hacks: 13 Scientific Cures That Actually Work

August 03, 2015 2 min read

Unlike the ancient Romans who believed eating dried canary meat was the answer, we promise these hacks don't include any bizarre concoctions. Prevent The Headache: 1) Lighten Up Dark drinks like red wine and rum have a higher concentration of fermenting agents than lighter options. These agents could cause a mightier hangover. 2) Bypass The Bubbles Don't drink carbonated beverages like a rum and coke or champagne which cause alcohol to absorb more quickly into your bloodstream. 3) Get Outside Having a few patio drinks or brews at the barbecue might be better than drinking inside. Oxygen slows down the impact of alcohol and helps filter out hangover-inducing toxins from getting into your system. 4) Be The D.D. The best way to prevent a hefty hangover is to not drink in the first place. You can still have a great night with your friends and make sure they get home safely. 5) Pay The Price Higher-end liquors are better quality, and will give you a great buzz with less fermenting agents or "hangover culprits". 6) Eat Up! Fill up on a good dinner before hitting the bar so you will feel less sick and regretful the next day. 7) H2O It Drink a glass of water for every beer or glass of wine you down. This will keep you hydrated and keep the toxins flushing out of your system. Next-Day Cures:  1) Blood Sugar Boost Eat a healthy, carb-rich breakfast to sustain your blood sugar level. Throw in lots of fruit to make sure you're on your game and not feeling like a zombie. 2) The Multivitamin Miracle Booze leaves your body wiped of nutrients, so refuel with a multivitamin. 3) The Yogi Master Scientists have actually proven that yoga can get your blood flowing and your brain oxygenated, hence relieving hangover symptoms. 4) Fill Up On Eggs Eggs go to the rescue to save your liver and revitalize your body. 5) Ginger Tea Cure Last night's festivities have you nauseous and stuck in the bathroom? Ginger can work fast to calm your tummy. 6) Pack In Potassium If you wake up dehydrated and de-energized, eat a banana or spinach to harness potassium power! We want you do share your hangover cures with us! Source: Greatist

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
