Time is the best cure for a hangover but these following tips can very much help you to get rid of that nasty and irritating hangover.
Drink plenty of water
Dehydration goes hand in hand with a hangover. Alcohol depletes water from the body. So, it’s advisable to drink a lot of juice and water to rehydrate yourself again.
Have food or drinks that contain fructose
Having such food will help you burn the alcohol faster. Also consuming these items might make you feel better. Try having some soup or any fruit juice if the above doesn’t work.
Take a warm bath
A hangover leaves your body aching. Hot shower will also ease your alcohol headache. A nice warm bath may just work wonders for you and you might feel a little better.
In case you were up really late at night, you could be a little sleep deprived. A proper sleep can take away much of the hangover. Put on some soothing music and just try to sleep.
Have Ginger ale
If you don`t want to drink water, try having a glass of flat ginger ale, which will help soothe your stomach and will fight nausea.
Scientists say that your hangover could feel a whole lot worse if you smoke as well. Smoking will further irritate your stomach, so keep away from cigarettes completely.
Make some toast
Eating some slices of plain toast along with eggs could be a good idea. The combination of protein and carbohydrates in an egg and toast is a good source of recovery nutrients. Eggs contain the amino acid cysteine, which can break down the toxins that cause hangover symptoms, and whole grains contain magnesium, which alcohol can deplete.
Take a vitamin B complex tablet
Vitamin B is really helpful in fighting your hangover. You will feel a lot better in the morning after you have taken a pill.
Get some fresh air
Fresh air can really help you sober up. If it’s an safe option try talking a walk outside. Making your body work or letting it sweat out through walking or exercising can help release out all of the toxins that are in your body causing the dreadful hangover.
