5 Ways to Get Rid of a Nasty Hangover.
After a wild night out, a hangover is almost always the result. Hangovers can be really terrible, especially if you do not know what to do about them. Have you ever wondered how to get rid of a really nasty hangover? Here‘s a list of remedies to ensure you don’t spend the day after your night out, in too much agony.
H20 is a must to cure a hangover. This is because, alcohol is a diuretic which means it can cause dehydration. Make sure you drink 16- 20 ounces of water before falling into bed. We also recommend having a glass of water with every glass of alcohol, and alternate between the two to replace lost fluids as you go.
A good cup of coffee, would help you feel more alert and awake , also, caffeine helps to treat headaches and migraines. If you do down a cup of coffee, be sure to drink water too as caffeine can cause dehydration.
EAT CRACKERS, TOAST OR OTHER MILD FLAVOURED CARBOHYDRATES
These foods alleviate nausea and help your body soak up the alcohol in your system. You should avoid foods that are spicy or acidic since they are more difficult for the body to digest. Also avoid foods that are heavy or oily, since they increase the feeling of nausea.
Ironically, chugging on sweet, caffeine-free soda, such as sprite may provide much solace during a hangover. In a 2013 study published in the journal Food and Function, Chinese researchers found the drink helps the body better metabolize alcohol by speeding up our ability to process aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), believed to be the culprit for hangover symptoms.
THE BEST CURE : PREVENTION
As an adult, it is very important you know how to drink responsibly. However, here is a handy tip: Limit your drinks to about one every hour. It takes your body about 60-75 minutes to metabolize each beer (or wine or shot). In research, “moderate drinking” by a man is defined as two drinks a day. More than five in one sitting is considered “heavy drinking.” So think before you order that extra round.
