7 Ways to Reduce Your Hangover

7 Ways to Reduce Your Hangover

Carb up before you go out

Finally an excuse to eat carbs. Eating fatty or carby foods slows alcohol absorption, giving your body a fighting chance. Food also helps to reduce the formation of acetaldehyde in your stomach, which is thought to be the main cause of hangovers.

For the love of God, don’t mix liquors

We get it, there’s so much goodness to choose from, but mixing beer and whiskey or rum and tequila will make you hate yourself the next day. This makes certain cocktails your worst enemy, because they often have more than one type of alcohol to begin with.

Go easy on cocktails, dark liquors, and sparkling wine

Dark liquors have a lot of things called congeners, toxins that are born in the fermentation process. They will up the severity of your hangover big time. Sparkling wine has bubbles. Apparently bubbles increase the effect of alcohol (that’s why champagne goes straight to your head). We covered why cocktails are bad for you – mixing two liquors could leave you feeling twice as hungover.

Drink as much water as you drink alcohol

This one’s simple but so many of us seem to suck at it. Alcohol dehydrates you. Water rehydrates you. Drink a glass of water after each alcoholic drink. You’ll thank us in the morning.

Avoid calorie-free mixers with fake sugars

First of all, you shouldn’t consume fake sugar anytime. But we get it, you’re trying to keep your waistline in check. As far as hangovers are concerned though, those extra calories from mixers actually slow the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream, holding off the build up that leads to you eventually feeling like crap.

Know your limits, skip that last shot

Drink too much and you’ll be hungover. Period. Also you’ll probably act like a big, old dummy and do something stupid. Shots are the worst offender, because magically we never seem to learn our lesson in how strongly they actually affect us.

Use Nutrovape Recover

Hangovers are over. Nutrovape Recover is a natural blend of Prickly Pear, Milk Thistle, Green Tea, L-Theanine, Glutathione, Turmeric Root, and Vitamin B12 that reduces hangover symptoms.

Five Foods That Help With Your Hangover

Five Foods That Help With Your Hangover

Maybe you had one (or four) too many last night and you need to not feel like crap today. Don’t lose hope! Just eat these awesome foods and get your recovery on.

Eggs

Next time you stumble into your favorite Sunday brunch spot, make sure you order eggs with your meal. Eggs are packed with hardworking amino acids like cysteine and taurine. Taurine boosts liver function and may actually help prevent liver disease. Cysteine breaks down acetaldehyde, the super evil chemical that leaves you with a killer headache after the liver finally breaks down the ethanol from all those drinks you had last night.

Miso Soup

Your mind might not make the jump to Japanese food when you wake up with a hangover, but traditional miso soup is a great morning-after remedy. The broth rehydrates and restocks sodium levels while the fermented miso can help aid digestion. Plus, Asian fusion brunches are a big thing right now.

Chicken Noodle Soup

The duct tape of the food world, chicken noodle soup simply cures everything. It might not be the most conventional hangover food, but a cup o' noodles or store brand can of soup can help restock sodium and water levels in the body. Chicken also contains cysteine, which give the liver a much-needed boost.

Oats

Oats are a superfood for a reason. When you’re feeling less than perfect on Sunday morning, try a hot bowl of oatmeal. Oatmeal has lots of essential nutrients like B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Plus oats can help neutralize acids in the body and raise blood sugar levels, bringing you back from the dead (so to speak).

Bananas

Bananas contain potassium, an important electrolyte that is often depleted due to alcohol’s diuretic effect. You can even make a smoothie with yogurt, bananas and leafy greens for the ultimate potassium packed, hangover fighting cocktail.

7 Ways To Hide From Your Hangover

7 Ways To Hide From Your Hangover

Drink in moderation

It’s not rocket science – the more you drink the worse your hangover will be.

The amount of alcohol needed to produce a hangover varies between people, some need only 1 or 2 drinks, but most people need much more. Some people like drinking, and are willing to do it even though they’ll probably regret it the morning after.

Fortunately, there are options that mitigate the damage.

Avoid drinks with congeners

When alcohol is produced by sugar-fermenting yeasts, nasty, little side products called congeners are formed too.

Alcoholic drinks with lots of congeners seem to directly affect the intensity of your hangover. People that avoid “brown liquor” do so for good reason. Whiskey, cognac, and tequila are high in congeners, while colorless drinks like vodka, gin and white rum, contain low levels of congeners.

Having a drink the morning after

It turns out the “hair of the dog” remedy actually works. When you have a drink in the morning, the alcohol is believed to affect the metabolism of methanol, one of the congeners found in certain drinks.

We don’t actually recommend drinking in the morning, however, as it’s associated with problem drinking, and cancelling out a few hangovers is probably not worth the risk of becoming an alcoholic.

Drink plenty of water

Alcohol is a diuretic, making you pee more than if you were drinking an equal amount of pure water. Basically, drinking alcohol dehydrates you, so you need to keep a steady supply of h2o to drink as well. You’ll feel better the next morning, because being well hydrated subdues some of the worst hangover symptoms.

Get enough sleep

Alcohol interferes with true REM sleep, the sleep that revitalizes you and keeps you healthy. That being said, you still need as much sleep as possible so you’re not quite as fatigued in the morning. The big DUH statement here is this: if you have important things to do in the morning, don’t drink.

Eat a hearty breakfast

If your blood sugar is low, you’re going to feel terrible after a night of drinking. One thing that can help after the fact is eating a big, hearty breakfast. In addition to providing the necessary vitamins and minerals, having a nutritious breakfast or a late night meal might help maintain your blood sugar levels, helping keep that hangover at bay.
