My current hangover cure of choice is drinkwel vitamin supplements, a lemon-lime Gatorade and sleep. But when it comes to hangover prevention, one can never be too prepared. This is why I decided to give Function’s Urban Detox a try. That, and Function was kind enough to send me a few bottles to try for free.
I decided to see if Urban Detox could replace Gatorade as my post drinking, drink of choice. Because let’s be real. Just because something has antioxidants, doesn’t mean it’s going to erase those six beers, four patron shots and two four lokos you downed. It’s just not.
With that in mind, I gave Function’s Urban Detox Citrus Prickly Pear a try. There are other flavors, but this review will focus only on the Prickly Pear flavor.
We’ll start with the taste. In short, it’s delicious. It’s less syrupy than Gatorade and better tasting than G2. I have yet to come across another drink that tastes similarly.
But there’s more to the Prickly Pear than just taste. According to the label, it is one of the ingredients that helps prevent hangovers. Specifically, it’s supposed to relieve those pounding headaches you feel the next day. After drinking heavily, downing a couple bottles and waking up to a pounding headache, I don’t know about all that.
Without combining Urban Detox with some of my other hangover prevention methods, I was left in some serious pain.
But while I can’t vouch for its ability to stop hangovers on its own, I can say Function Urban Detox is a great alternative to the sugary Vitamin waters, Gatorades and other “healthy” drinks available. Because when combined with other hangover prevention methods, Urban Detox proved to work just as well as the other drinks.
