We have all been in the situation when there is a huge party coming up and we are expected to show up for work the next day. You obviously do not want to wake up with a hangover and end up wasting half the day and listening to a mouthful from the boss. There are plenty of simple home remedies that can be used to get rid of, or at least minimize the impact of a hangover. Listed below are some of the most effective of these remedies.
10. B Vitamins
Vitamin B works like a charm when it comes to reducing the effect of a hangover long before it even starts. Just remember to take the dosage exactly as mentioned on the label of the bottle before heading out to the party.
Take some mouthfuls of pickles before heading to the club for a long night of partying. Pickles work because of the salt, which the body needs during intake of alcohol. Take it with a hamburger or French Fries. The fries will also help in absorbing some of the alcohol.
8. Don’t Mix Drinks
Decide what you are going to be drinking before heading to the party and stick with it. Whether it is wine, beer, or whiskey that you decided, drink nothing but that during the night. The human body has a hard time processing more than one alcoholic beverage at a time.
7. Orange Juice
Fructose, or the sugar present in fruits, is known to provide energy. Take a glass or two the next morning to give your body some energy to get rid of all the toxins that you had been taking in the whole night.
6. Olive Oil
Some people from the Mediterranean are of the opinion that gulping down a spoon of olive oil will prevent a hangover. It is quite difficult to swallow oil in its raw form, so you might be better off sprinkling some of it on a salad.
We all know that milk has plenty of positive effects on the human body. Try drinking some milk the morning you wake up after a night of drinking. You will feel the difference almost instantaneously.
Water is important for living organisms for a reason; it helps the body function correctly. While out partying, take a glass of water for every glass of alcohol you consume. Take a couple more before going to bed.
Eat a banana straight away after waking up to minimize the effects of a possible hangover. Bananas contain potassium which helps the body in the production of electrolytes. There is a shortage of electrolytes in the body after downing a few drinks.
Egg is arguably the best choice for breakfast, the morning after heavy drinking. One of the effects of a hangover is not feeling like eating anything. Try to take a few bites anyway.
1. Fried Foods
The fats in cooking oil, when consumed, will help your body absorb some of the alcohol and in turn reduce the impact of the night of drinking.
