Healthy Hangover Cures
Looking for a way to quickly recover from a night of drinking? Kick your hangover to the curb with these healthy hangover cures.
We've all been there. Waking up the morning after a heavy night is NEVER fun.
All the embarrassing memories from the night come rushing back in the form of major Hang-xiety followed by the headaches, nausea, aches and pains.
The severe dehydration can plague us even more!
While our first instinct is to pick up our phones and deliver in a big McDonald's meal, there are a lot of things you could be doing to quickly and healthily cure yourself of your post night out pain!
Prevention is better than CURE
It’s well-known that drinking on an empty stomach is a disaster waiting to happen, as the alcohol is absorbed into the body quicker.
Before venturing on a big night out, make sure you get a good meal that contains carbs, or fats, basically something to soak up the drink.
We’ve all heard someone say ‘i have a big glass of water before bed and that helps’ and actually it does.
Alcohol is diuretic which increases the amount you go to the loo, this can, in turn, cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, which result in a worse hangover.
So do yourself a favour and have a pint of water before bed, you’ll be really glad you did.
And of course, the obvious one, know your limits. You may think you can handle a lot more drink than you actually can, just take it slow and be aware of how you're feeling.
Hangovers are made worse by dehydration. It results from the alcohol itself and increased urination (aka breaking the seal) without replenishing fluids.
The excess sugar found in booze can overwhelm your body and make you feel much rougher the following day.
What to have to replenish your nutrients:
Fresh Fruit Juices
You can also plan ahead and drink a pint or two of water before hitting the sack – it may seem like a hassle, but you’ll thank yourself the next day.
Double Up on The Sleep
Drinking alcohol affects the quality of our sleep!
Ever found yourself randomly snoring after a night out? That's the alcohol for you!
Drinking alcohol prior to climbing into bed at night reduces time spent in the all important REM cycle.
The result? The next day you might feel a bit worse for wear and possibly experience a brain fog.
Try and carve out an hour or so on a hangover day for a nap.
Fuel Up on Food full of Vitamins & Minerals
Eating food that is full of vitamins and minerals which you may have lost will help your body get back into a good balance. So maybe a McDonalds isn’t the best idea.
