HOUSEHOLD REMEDIES FOR A HANGOVER
Healthy Hangover Breakfast
After a night out, the body often craves salty and hearty food. In fact, food is the best hangover cure. Because with food you help your mineral balance, which has gotten out of balance, to get back on track again. Make sure to avoid fatty and hearty breakfast foods that are heavy on the stomach.
A tangy vegetable omelet, a piece of whole grain bread or healthy granola with fruit is easier to digest and provides you with valuable vitamins and minerals. Even if your stomach is irritated, try to eat a few bites anyways.
Restore Your Body with Coconut Water
Coconut water is an excellent drink, and is known for its high concentrations of electrolytes, fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Its electrolytes and potassium rehydrate the body quickly, and can ease out a headache and nausea too.
If eating doesn’t work for you at all, you can always use fresh ginger to get better. The miracle root contains a lot of vitamin C and magnesium which makes it our insider tip against nausea and circulatory problems.
Freshly grated and mixed with water or as a cooled tea, ginger can calm the stomach and it has an effect on your ailing nervous system too. Drink in small sips. Alternatively you can slowly chew a piece of ginger.
After drinking alcohol, blood sugar levels are often low, which is the reason why we often feel tired and limp, even if we have slept for a long time. Honey is a real pick-me-up and can give you the much-needed kick in the morning when you can barely open your eyes. The fructose contained in honey also helps your body to break down the alcohol. Honey also contains anti-inflammatory enzymes, bioactive substances and antioxidants that help the body regenerate.
The exotic fruit is among the foods that put you in a good mood. As a valuable source of potassium and magnesium, they are also a proven remedy for annoying headaches after a night of heavy drinking.
Therefore, when your head is buzzing, grab some bananas, which can serve you as your hangover breakfast. Just mix them up as a shake with either cow or plant based milk. Add a spoonful of honey and you’re done.
