Hangover cure for New Years Day!
I’m going to take a risk and say that at least a few of you are going to have a cocktail on New Years Eve. Maybe more than a few.
Well, first of all, don’t drive drunk. Have plans in place to make sure you can get home safely. Appoint a driver, call a cab, walk, whatever.
But it is plausible that some of you abuse and drink too much and wake up with a hangover. It happens. So I thought I would share a few options for this hangover to make sure it’s not as bad as it could be. Pounding headaches, nausea … that doesn’t sound like fun at all.
So here are some hangover remedies that may work for you:
1. If you suffer from nausea, try eating a hearty breakfast. A good breakfast can help keep your blood sugar levels up.
2. Honey and toast. The fructose in honey will help break down your body’s chemicals from alcohol into harmless byproducts. Potassium and sodium that are added to the body will also help.
3. Stay hydrated. Maybe Pedialyte or Gatorade can do the trick, or some good old fashioned H2O. It will also help if you have vomited, which can cause dehydration. If you balance alcohol with a glass of water, you might be able to avoid a hangover altogether.
4. Dog hair. Not recommended, but many swear by it. Have a drink the next morning. Bloody Mary seems to be popular.
5. Try to consume some supplements. Red ginseng: One study found that supplementing with red ginseng reduced blood alcohol levels, as well as the severity of hangovers. Ginger: One study found that combining ginger with brown sugar and tangerine extract improved several hangover symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Bottom Line – The strategies include staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, eating a good breakfast, and taking certain supplements, all of which could reduce hangover symptoms. Plus, drinking in moderation and choosing drinks that are low in congeners can help prevent a hangover in the first place.
Hope this helps you. Have a safe New Years Eve and prepare for 2022!
