Ginger lemon tea is the ultimate hangover cure and will make you feeling good in no time. Ginger takes care of nausea and will also reduce inflammation and lemon on the other hand soothes nerves as they are packed with vitamin C and potassium.
Instead of getting a sugar rush from eating a chocolate right in the morning, sip on a chilled glass of coconut water. It will satiate your sugar craving, fill you with energy and give you a potassium high that’ll pull you out of that hangover in no time.
We recommend sunny side up as the yolks is what is going to help you the most as they are packed with vitamin D, calcium and acetylcholine that’ll get your brain working faster. So binge on a hearty breakfast of eggs!
We’re stressing a lot on potassium rich foods as alcohol brings it down so to boost it you should always look for foods which will bring it up again. And so you can have avocado in a hangover as it is jam-packed with fiber, vitamin B6 and carotenoids. This amazing fruit is super-healthy and will cure you in no time.
Keep the dried version in your fridge and you’re all set to cure the hangover as this will curb your need for eating something sugary and will boost potassium levels in the body.
Beets are full of nitric oxide that helps in increasing blood and oxygen flow in the body and brings the blood pressure to normal. It builds stamina that is much needed after a night of boozing and partying and fills you up with potassium, fiber, folate and vitamin C.
Drinking alcohol can make you feel weak and light headed which may also happen if your body lacks B-complex vitamins. Regular intake of salmon or even during a hangover will make you feel good.
Sweet potatoes are a tad sweeter and healthier than potatoes, so refrain from the fried potatoes that you might crave during a hangover. Not only this, sweet potatoes brings up the sugar level but the molecules break down slowly in the lever so that the rise in sugar levels is slow-paced.
