Few people would argue, and no one would successfully argue, that alcohol is a particularly healthy beverage if it's consumed on a more than moderate level. Alcohol is one of those necessary evils for some people. Now that more and more people are realizing the value of moderation or even very light drinking as opposed to drunkenness and a "party" mentality toward alcohol, there are conservative mixers out there meant to add a touch of health to a dose of alcohol. While these mixers in no way make alcohol a safe beverage to consume a lot of, they do make alcohol a lesser evil for folks who enjoy to have a good mixed drink now and again. The menu of mixers for alcohol has grown strong over the years with low carb beverages for the weight conscious and hydration mixers for those who want to feel less weighed down when drinking.
What are hydration mixers?
One of the things that alcohol does to the body is quickly dehydrate it. Add to this the fact that many people skip meals when they're drinking and you have a recipe for feeling terrible a day after drinking. Some folks begin to feel weighed down and dehydrated even while they're still enjoying a spirit or two. What hydration mixers do is give drinkers a lot of electrolytes to ward off dehydration and make them feel better during and after drinking than they normally would. These drinks are something that many folks swear by.
Keep it moderate
No matter how many hydration mixers you throw into the mix, you're still going to feel terrible the next day if you overdo it. Don't mistake healthy mixers as something that make alcohol healthy. They don't. What they do is give you the opportunity to skip out on some of the carbs and bad things that lead to feeling physically bad after drinking. They keep you hydrated and let you enjoy alcohol in a way that doesn't cause quite as much discomfort as a normal beer or two would. Many of these mixers are also great tasting. For those who have a problem with the taste of alcohol, the mixers really do a lot to drown out that taste and turn alcohol into something that for once can truly be enjoyed without the pesky stomach upset. That's only if you keep it moderate
