Frequently asked questions
When to use FixU?
It is advisable to take one shot (60 ml) of FixU after your last dose of alcohol, for example just before bedtime. In the morning, when your hangover is already over, it is too late, even with FixU ingredients eg. N-acetyl-cysteine and dihydromyrisetin have been found to enhance the body's de-toxing systems, so in theory, FixU can also be taken in the morning to support the evening dose.
Can I use FixU if I have diet restrictions?
FixU does not contain caffeine, soy, gluten, nuts or lactose, thus making it suitable for a wide variety of diets.
Can I use FixU if I am on medication?
FixU has no proven ingredients that react with drugs. However, we recommend that you consult your physician before using FixU as each person and medication is unique.
My FixU drink has sediment in it, is the product still usable?
Accumulation of the sediment on either the surface or the bottom is a completely natural reaction of the ingredients. Always remember to shake your FixU drink before use. The product is best stored at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.
Does FixU work better than the traditional hangover prevention methods?
If you feel that coffee, painkillers, softeners and vitamin tablets are working for you, we are happy for you. However, if their performance still needs to be improved, we have a new option to try. FixU contains ingredients that have been shown in recent years to enhance the body's natural ability to prevent hangover.
Can I drive a car in a hangover?
The short answer: NO by any means. If you operate a motorized vehicle on terrain, on ice, on the road or anywhere else, we recommend that you use a breathalyzer before you set off.
Can I train in a hangover?
The short answer: NO by any means. In a hangover, your heart rate and blood pressure are higher than they normally are, thus making your workout heavy. The influence of alcohol on physical activity itself depends, e.g. on the type and the amount of alcohol consumed, the rate of alcohol withdrawal, and the type of physical activity. In a hangover, the body has not been able to recover from fluid and metabolic fluctuations, and oxygen uptake is not at its best. The neurotransmitter stores of the brain's pleasure center are low and can cause, e.g. depression and irritation, which can keep your performance below normal. In a hangover, exercise can also lead to arrhythmias. The only form of exercise when you’re suffering of a hangover is light walking.
Why hydration is important
Be sure to drink non-alcoholic liquids as well during your night out. Alcohol increases the need to urinate, which during a long evening begins to dry out the body.
How come rough mornings after drinking get worse as I get older?
It seems that hangover is influenced by genetics and habit. Age, however, does not necessarily worsen it – or at least its effect has not been fully demonstrated. As you get older, you usually suffer from more severe hangovers than before, but this is partly due to habits and tolerance.
How easily after drinking do you get a hangover?
Alcoholic beverages affect the body in many ways. The clinical picture of the hangover varies, usually taking 5-6 restaurant sized alcohol servings for a man and 3-5 servings for a woman to get a hangover. The dose-effect relationship is not always clear, and colored drinks (whiskey, wine, cognac, and tequila) seem to have more effect than the clear ones (vodka, gin, rum). Smoking aggravates hangover due to effects of tobacco smoke as well as the combined effects of alcohol and the chemicals in a tobacco. In addition, smoking can stimulate you to drink more.
When does a hangover start?
The severity of a hangover is directly proportional to the intensity of the intoxication. The typical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, such as fatigue, nausea and headaches, begin to show as blood alcohol levels decline. Exceeding one per mil leads to dehydration, low blood sugar and symptoms of intoxication. The symptoms are at its worst when almost all alcohol has been removed from the body.
When will a hangover end?
Hangover is an alcohol withdrawal syndrome that includes short-term hormonal changes and immune defenses in the body. Withdrawal symptoms occur when the biochemical changes in the body caused by alcohol begin to recover after drinking. The first withdrawal symptoms can begin as early as 4-12 hours after you stop drinking. For many, the hangover lasts for a day, but longer periods are common.
