After a fun New Year’s Eve with friends, many dread the hangover owing to those extra few drinks. Sharp pain in the head, unease and dizziness are common features of a bad hangover.
Nevertheless, whether you are a newbie or a seasoned one, some tried and tested remedies can help lessen the impact of a hangover.
If you are up with a blaring hangover in the morning (read noon), consider these points to sober up quickly-
Hydration, hydration, hydration: After a night of binge drinking, your body is severely dehydrated and running low on vitamins and nutrients. While water throughout the day is the ideal pick, one of the best-known hangover remedies is to make yourself a glass of lemon juice devoid of sugar. Hydration can also include water-based fruits once you feel like eating.
Have a banana
Bananas are a good source of potassium, an important electrolyte that can get depleted after drinking. Low electrolyte levels can contribute to hangover symptoms like fatigue, headache, nausea, muscle cramps, and low energy. One banana contains 425 milligrams of potassium or 12% of your recommended daily value.
Snack on salty foods
Eating salty foods can help replenish your body's sodium levels, which may also be depleted after heavy drinking. Some of the best examples include Pickles, Olives, Chicken noodle soup.
Drinking coffee or tea
Coffee and other caffeinated drinks act as stimulants, which may improve the feelings of fatigue that come with a hangover. Coffee, black tea, and green tea contain some antioxidants that may reduce the adverse effects of alcohol consumption.
Coconut Water to the rescue
Coconut water works wonders for a hangover. It has everything your body needs – from calcium to vitamin C. Trust me, you will thank me for this one.
Hangovers are usually accompanied by an upset stomach. Ginger helps fix that problem. So if you aren’t a coffee person, sip on some yummy ginger tea instead the next morning.
