Hangxiety

The post-drinking effect no one talks about, but is more common than you think…

Dalia Steichen

December 12, 2019

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Anxiety. We all know that feeling outside of drinking. The stressful, sweaty palm, racing mind sensation that we can’t seem to shake. While that feeling is all-too familiar, you might be surprised to hear that it’s a common symptom caused by alcohol consumption.

So, what’s “hangxiety”, and how is it caused?

Long story short, a major cause (if not the biggest cause) of why a person feels so poorly is because of something called GABAa rebound. When you first drink alcohol and it enters your bloodstream, it eventually reaches your brain and its GABAa receptors. This is what triggers alcohol’s positive effects (i.e. relaxed, brave – aka “liquid courage”, friendlier). But, when you’re done drinking and alcohol leaves your system, your GABAa receptors go into rebound, i.e, withdrawal, causing adverse effects. This is when your brain tries to correct the chemical imbalances that was caused by alcohol. So, you’ll start to feel anxious, irritable, shaky, and a more squirrel-like inability to focus on any one thing – a term we like to call “hangxiety”.

How does Cheers help with “hangxiety”?

DHM, one of the main ingredients in Cheers Restore, binds to the same brain receptor alcohol binds to (the GABAa). By binding to the GABAa receptor, DHM reduces GABAa rebound and ultimately reduces the next-day effect of "hangxiety."

About Cheers

Cheers is the leading alcohol-related health brand focused on developing products that support your liver and help you feel great the next day. As a student at Princeton, Cheers’ founder Brooks Powell discovered the potential advantage of incorporating the natural plant extract Dihydromyricetin (DHM) into an after-alcohol consumption regimen and began working with his professors to make products that addressed the unique challenges of alcohol-related health. . Since its official launch in 2017, Cheers has sold more than 13 million doses  to over 300 thousand customers. The research-backed line of products includes three versions of supplemental pills and powders – Restore, Hydrate and Protect. Cheers is now releasing read-to-drink versions of their products—starting with Cheers Restore. Each product is equipped to meet different health needs such as rehydration, liver support, and acetaldehyde exposure. Cheers places an equal emphasis on the responsibility and health aspects of its mission and vision. The brand’s mission is bringing people together by promoting fun, responsible, and health-conscious alcohol consumption. The vision is a world where everyone can enjoy alcohol throughout a long, healthy, and happy lifetime. For more information, visit cheershealth.com or join the social conversation at @cheershealth.
