A hangover is the experience of various unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following the consumption of ethanol, as found in wine, beer and distilled spirits. Hangovers can last for several hours or for more than 24 hours. Typical symptoms of a hangover may include headache, drowsiness, concentration problems, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress (e.g., vomiting), absence of hunger, sweating, nausea, hyper-excitability and anxiety.
- Drink water:
It’s important to stay hydrated while you’re drinking alcohol. That means drinking plenty of water between cocktails. If you bypass that rule and wake up groggy the next morning, drink up to rehydrate and flush the impurities from your system.
The higher levels of fructose in honey ease the symptoms of hangover. Just a tablespoon of honey will do wonders. You can also prepare toddy by adding lemon juice and honey (to taste) to a cup of boiled water. Drink it several times a day.
- Chocolate Milk:
Drink chocolate milk before hitting the hay, in order to get rid of hangover.
Add two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice and one teaspoon of honey to a glass of warm water. Stir well and drink it down slowly. Do this as soon as you wake up, as well as two or three times more throughout the day.
- Toast and Egg:
Eating some slices of plain toast with an egg is a good idea to get over hangover symptoms. The carbohydrates in toast are a good source of recovery nutrients.
Eat one or two bananas with your breakfast after a night of heavy drinking to alleviate hangover symptoms.
