From the networking executive who has a cocktail hour in the evening and then a pitch the next morning, to the maid of honor who has to conduct a toast on Saturday and be ready to run twenty miles on Sunday, Function has proven to deliver.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2011
To celebrate the theatrical release of The Hangover Part II, Functional Supplements is officially announcing the launch of their hangover remedy supplement Function. Although The Hangover Part II is likely to be the comedic hit of the summer, real hangovers are no laughing matter. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has stated that lost productivity due to alcohol-related illness is estimated at over $68 million dollars a year according to their publication Updating Estimates Of The Economic Costs Of Alcohol Abuse In The United States: Estimates, Update Methods, & Data. In addition to the economic cost, hangovers can be a very unpleasant experience. Hangover symptoms can include dehydration, fatigue, anxiety, headache, nausea, acid reflux, diarrhea, increased heart rate and blood pressure, and decreased visual-spatial skill performance.
Although the best way to avoid a hangover is to abstain from alcohol, this option is not always desirable for those people that enjoy beer, wine, or spirits responsibly. Function by Functional Supplements has been scientifically developed, based on the latest published academic research, to help assist the body’s natural ability to recover from the ill-effects of moderate alcohol consumption. Each capsule is a potent combination of vitamins, electrolytes, and supporting nutraceuticals meant to assist professionals, athletes, and weekend warriors function the day after a celebratory event. Function has already received great early buzz via social media as an effective way to avoid the dreaded hangover.
Michael Rucker, a two time Ironman finisher, is the co-creator of Function. Frustrated with the current hangover products on the market he wanted something that actually worked. “I love endurance sports, and part of committing to endurance racing is long distance training on the weekends,” says Mr. Rucker. “The problem is celebratory events usually coincide with weekend training. I needed something that would allow me to participate in both activities.” Working with experts in both nutrition and biochemistry Function was initially developed with the endurance athlete in mind, but it quickly became apparent that the product could benefit anyone. From the networking executive who has a cocktail hour in the evening and then a pitch the next morning, to the maid of honor who has to conduct a toast on Saturday and be ready to run twenty miles on Sunday, Function has proven to deliver.
