So now you have consumed excessive amounts of booze and as a result, suffer from a hangover. You feel terribly irritable and uncomfortable, and your muscles and head all ache excruciatingly. What do you do to extricate yourself from this unpleasant state – that is, be cured from a hangover? We offer you 10 ways to cure a hangover.
- Use ‘Hangover Killers’
Hangover Killers is a product that really works to cure your hangover. In every sachet is a revolutionary formula specially designed to simultaneously re-hydrate and deliver essential vitamins and minerals that are lost during drinking. Take one or two cups of our product for the ultimate hangover cure.
- Drink plenty of water
Water is the elixir of life, and rightly so. Its magical abilities seem to be well demonstrated in helping you to recover from a hangover. Alcohol is a diuretic and causes dehydration; therefore, there is a need for plenty of hydration to replace lost fluids if you are to cure your hangover. Hydration can alleviate many symptoms associated with a hangover like headaches and dizziness.
- Drink isotonic/sports drinks
Isotonic or sports drinks have the same benefit of hydration as water, along with the added benefit of replenishing vital minerals and electrolytes.
- Have some carbohydrates
Munch on some food rich in carbohydrates because carbohydrates can raise your blood sugar levels. Excessive drinking causes your liver to be very busy metabolising the alcohol, so your blood sugar levels remain depressed and you feel the irritable effects of a hangover. Carbohydrates relieve some of those effects. Toast, crackers, bananas and potatoes are examples of some carbohydrate-rich foods. Besides, carbohydrates help your body to recover many essential nutrients lost during drinking.
- Consume some eggs
Eggs are excellent in relieving a hangover. Although not rich in carbohydrates, they contain amino acids (proteins) cysteine and taurine, which break down the toxins that make you feel unwell after drinking, helping to ameliorate your hangover symptoms. For the best of both worlds, combine the benefits of eggs and carbohydrates by making some Eggs Benedict (toast).
- Avoid coffee or tea
You have already experienced enough of a diuretic effect by ingesting so much alcohol, so ditch that cup of coffee or tea and opt for an alternative hot drink. Coffee and tea have a diuretic effect on the body because they contain caffeine and so will prolong your hangover instead of curing it.
7. Have a hot shower
Have a hot shower to refresh your mind and body. Binging on alcohol causes you to be dreary, depressed and confused. And a hot shower can instantly lift some of these symptoms. After all, who does not enjoy the sensation of warm water flowing over their bodies?
Sleeping may seem like a no-brainer, but it does help to cure a hangover to a certain extent. As alcohol causes your body to be deprived of sleep, it is natural that by putting in those extra hours of rest, you will feel better.
- Take a multivitamin
A multivitamin can be an alternative to isotonic drinks to replenishing the vitamins and electrolytes which your body has lost from alcohol drinking.
- Take pain medication for some immediate relief
If you are experiencing an excruciating headache, it may be wise for you to take some pain medication. Generally, you should only use non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Stay away from acetaminophen due to its liver-damaging reactions with alcohol by products. Your debilitating pain should ease with some time and rest. Use this method if your symptoms warrant some immediate relief.
