New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and the party mood has set in! The winters, vacations and
approaching New Year! Its that time of the year when the evenings are all about parties. Most of us
tend to go overboard with drinking in all these parties only to regret it next morning. Your hangover
can be anything from a pounding headache, queasiness, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound,
muscle ache or irritability.
Well, do not worry. HealthPotli got you covered with some simple hangover remedies.
- Eat greasy food : We’ve all heard people waffling on
about how dangerous it is to go out on an empty stomach, well turns out there’s truth to that.
Enjoy a nice greasy meal before drinking; the fat will help to make a protective lining on the walls of
your stomach. This slows down the rate of alcohol absorption which means you’ll be less likely to
wake up with a splitting headache.
- Sugar : Consume sugar while and after drinking.
Drink fruit juices and other beverages rich in sugar. This will hydrate you and simultaneously restore the
blood sugar levels.Studies suggest that fructose also speeds alcohol metabolism, thus reducing the risk of
a hangover. You can also try plain orange juice between cocktails.
- Sip some ginger tea: Ginger is one of the best remedies for settling an upset stomach that come with a side of hangovers. Ginger
combats nausea and vomiting.Sweeten ginger tea with lots of honey; it contains fructose, which will
help your body metabolize and burn off any alcohol still in your system.
- Eat a banana : When dehydrated, we lose not only water
but electrolytes too. Low levels of potassium can leave you sick with muscle cramps and soreness.
Bananas are packed with potassium, which help restore the minerals and electrolytes that your body lost
while drinking. Another cure is to proactively eat a banana before you start drinking, to stock your
potassium levels ahead of time.
- Vitamins :You don’t really need that commercial
hangover remedy pill. Most hangover pills a just a pack of loaded multivitamins. Try OTC multivitamin
pills for an easy cure. Vitamin B1, B6 and C are the ones you want to look for.
- Lemon :Lemon can help get rid of the after-effects
of excessive drinking like queasiness, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, and muscle pain.
Lemon helps rebalance the body, by controlling the blood sugar level and altering the pH levels.
