Dextrose

Plain Language Summary

Dextrose (glucose) is a simple sugar that increases the absorption of water from the digestive tract, and it can counteract some of the metabolic changes that occur with a hangover.

Summary

Alcohol can reduce the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream, can cause dehydration, and can cause metabolic acidosis. Glucose, paired with sodium, can increase the absorption of water from the digestive tract. Glucose can also be used in the liver to negate some of the acidosis.
