We all look forward to the weekend. Spending time with friends, taking a load off, and sometimes unhealthy practices such as heavy drinking can ensue. The price to pay for a great night can be an awful morning, unless you have the right natural approach to slaying your hangover.
In the early hours after heavy drinking, you will regret the memories. Here are a few tools to help you cheat your hangover:
Bananas: Binge drinking has the tendency to wipe out the potassium in your body. Bananas will help restore that balance and will give your blood sugar a boost.
Honey: The Royal Society of Chemistry claims that eating a breakfast comprising of toast with honey on it is the best ways to best a hangover. Like bananas, honey is rich in potassium. Honey also has antioxidants and provides a robust energy and immune boost.
Water: Though not the cause, dehydration worsens the dreadful effects of a hangover. Don't wait till the morning after you party, drink water before, during, and after you consume the cocktails and leave out the pain medications which react badly with alcohol.
Avoid caffeine: Some people will tell you to drink an energy drink, coffee, or tea when you have a hangover to help you feel better, but the truth is that caffeine is not your friend and will actually dehydrate you further. Instead, go for fruit juice but if your stomach is upset you may want to avoid orange juice since it is so acidic.
