The dreaded morning after headache … the result of dehydration, toxic alcohol impurities and the loss of salts and sugar. If you enjoy the drinks—but hate the morning after—take note of these helpful tips!
- Limit the sweet drinks.
These cocktails tend to go down very quickly which makes it far too easy to over-indulge!
- Drink premium liquors.
The more expensive the alcohol, the better the method used to distill and remove the congeners.
- Drink non-carbonated sports drinks to replace salt and sugar.
Why non-carbonated? Because carbonation causes bloating.
- Eat a banana.
Bananas have potassium, glucose and magnesium that will soothe the stomach, relax the blood vessels and provide natural antacids.
- Choose light-colored liquors, as dark liquors have more congeners (impurities).
- Alternate sips of water since alcohol is a diuretic (which means it depletes the body of water) it affects the brain.
This brain shrinkage, due to loss of water, most often results in a pounding headache.
- Don’t mix drinks!
It takes the body longer to metabolize each type of alcohol, so stay with one type of liquor.
- Rule of thumb: limit yourself to one drink per hour.
Depending on one’s weight and gender, the body can process about one ounce of alcohol per hour.
- Eat before drinking.
Yes, you read it correctly – while you’re still sober, chow down a few fatty foods as these are the best for slowing the absorption of alcohol. No time? Drink a glass of milk .
