My Thoughts:

I’m a huge proponent of getting the daily nutrients your body requires through real food, rather than supplements. For some individuals, though, I believe that supplements may be helpful for those looking to bridge the nutritional gaps in their diet.

Fish oil, rich in omega 3 fatty acids, is a great source of beneficial fats that have a wide range of benefits for your health. Fats are largely responsible for facilitating activity in your endocrine system (hormones). Thus, getting your daily amount of good fats is vital for optimum health.

This fish oil by Nutrigold appears to be high quality–distilled, purified and sourced from sustainable, deep water fish. It is also free of many common allergens such as soy and gluten, as well as artificial ingredients–which I appreciate.

Being new to taking it, I haven’t seen drastic positive changes, but I do not have any negative effects like fishy burps nor indigestion. In the past taking fish oil, I’ve noticed that my skin seems to like it and it gives my complexion a boost of glowiness.

Beet & Berry Smoothie created by Jesica

This smoothie is awesomely hearty and perfect before a run or workout. A fellow instagrammer shared with me that to ultra-marathoners, beet juice is “nature’s gatorade.” How cool is that!? So I thought, add some delicious mixed frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) and voila!

What’s In It (exact measurements are not important):

3 or 4 beets chopped up (use the greens too)

1 handful of frozen mixed berries (fresh are better if you have them, but frozen adds a nice chill to the smoothie, so no ice is needed)

Splash of almond milk

Splash of water

There you have some “natural gatorade”!

Enjoy! (doesn’t hurt that it has a pretty color to it, also!)

Rango Smoothie (Raspberries & Mango) Created by Jesica

My favorite way to consume lots of nutrients in a short amount of time is to make a smoothie and throw in all kinds of goodies. I made one this morning that was very tasty, satisfying, and nutritious.

Here’s what in it: (measurements do not have to be exact- adjust them to your liking!)

1 ripe mango

1 handful of frozen raspberries (fresh is better if you have them on hand)

1 cup almond milk

1 Tbsp flax seeds

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp hemp protein powder (you can substitute another protein powder you have on hand)

2 Drops of stevia to add an extra touch of sweetness

Blend & slurp! 🙂

Never Hungover

Overall Rating: 3 Stars

About Never Hungover:

“NEVER HUNGOVER is an innovative and exciting hangover prevention drink that is set to revolutionize the category of beverages that claim to prevent or cure hangovers. NEVER HUNGOVER is a great tasting dietary supplement that is comprised of a natural vitamin blend, antioxidants, amino acids, nutrients, and minerals. It’s formula helps neutralize and process the toxins caused by alcohol in the liver and kidneys (known as acetaldehyde’s), by turning them into acetic acid which is flushed out of the body, thus drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. NEVER HUNGOVER is produced in America, and has zero carbs, calories, or sugars. It is also caffeine and gluten free.

NEVER HUNGOVER can be consumed as a shot or a mixer. The product is designed to take up to an hour before or while consuming alcohol. For optimal results, take one bottle of NEVER HUNGOVER per four drinks. Party Tonight and Feel Great Tomorrow only with Never Hungover.

Ingredients:

As we mention on our product page, the Never Hungover formula helps neutralizes and processes the toxins that are caused by alcohol in the liver and kidney’s known as acetaldehyde by turning them into acetic acid. Then, the acid is flushed out of the body drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. But what exactly do the specific natural ingredients of Never Hungover contribute to the success of the product? Let’s get into a few of the amazing ingredients of our natural formula…

Obviously, buying all these ingredients separately would cost you a fortune and carrying them around with you might require a new set of luggage. Never Hungover combines all of these amazing hangover preventing ingredients along with several other natural supplements into a great tasting lemon-lime drink that is available in a 2oz travel size bottle or 750ml bottle perfect for your home. The benefits of ingredients of Never Hungover don’t just stop at preventing your hangover, but don’t just take it from us, try it yourself!”

My Thoughts:

A a health enthusiast, I would say that drinking alcohol is acceptable at times but only in moderation. I personally save it for special occasions and such. You can even get your hands on organic wines or liquors that will help minimize the toxin overload that alcohol provides the body with. That said, on those occasions a product like this can come in handy to prevent having to pay for a fun night the next morning.

I like that the ingredients are naturally based, though they’re not organic.

In regards to effectiveness, I found these shots to be effective in preventing a headache the morning after drinking a few glasses of wine. Though the shots are recommended for every 4 drinks, I drink seldom, so two glasses of wine were sufficient for me to feel satisfied.

Back in college when I consumed more alcohol, I could have used a product like this. Again, while I don’t recommend drinking heavily, I see these Never Hungover shots as a healthier compliment to your fun night out that will make the morning brighter and more bearable.
