Most Effective Home Remedies for Hangovers

5. Bananas

xybijeiuBananas deliver potassium to the body, an electrolyte that we lose when we sweat or pee. Drinking alcohol disturbs the electrolyte balance in the body, and greatly reduces the level of potassium.

  •  Bananas also contain vitamins C and B6, which help neutralize free radicals that damage the liver after drinking alcohol.

  •  There is an excellent homemade anti-hangover recipe: mix 2 bananas, 2 tablespoons of honey and a glass of milk in a blender. Drink in small sips. Honey is a source of glucose, milk is a good sorbent, and you already know why bananas are needed.

4. Chicken soup

wo2n0q22A hot bowl of soup after a wild night can be the perfect solution to all your hangover woes.

  •  Chicken broth is rich in sodium, which, along with potassium and chlorine, is the body's main electrolyte. It also contains potassium, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and many other beneficial substances.

3. Mineral water without gas

jjdpwlxnWith a hangover, your body needs two primary things: restoring the acid-base balance and getting rid of dehydration.

  •  Alkaline mineral water, such as Borjomi, will do just fine with both. Just before you drink, release gas from it so as not to irritate the gastric mucosa (she already got pretty bad from alcohol) with a portion of carbon dioxide.

  •  Another popular recipe for a hangover: a glass of mineral water with the juice of 1 lemon added – a natural source of vitamin C. This simple remedy perfectly helps with thirst and reduces the intensity of symptoms of poisoning. Although adding lemon may not be the best solution if you have gastritis or other gastrointestinal problems.

2. Physical exercises

mr3zxnnwAnd this item of a selection of effective remedies for a hangover may cause indignation among many readers. Do physical activity when your head hurts, you feel sick, and it seems that you are dying? Yes, at first glance, exercise and a hangover never go hand in hand. But have you heard the expression “opposites attract”?

  •  A jog or other outdoor exercise will help improve blood flow and clear your head. The endorphins released during exercise will make you feel better. And then the toxins will come out of you. You can’t run, at least walk fast, move – this is the only way to quickly remove the general malaise from a hangover.

1. Cucumber or cabbage pickle

oinjsdpbInexpensive and perhaps the most effective and proven remedy for a hangover. And all because these fluids are a source of dissolved salts and electrolytes, substances that regulate the movement of water molecules in cells, affect blood clotting, and perform many other important functions.

  •  And a glass of cabbage or cucumber brine (but not a marinade that contains vinegar) is essentially the first step towards normalizing water-salt metabolism in the body. And the cabbage brine also contains succinic acid, which is necessary for the normal process of cellular respiration. Why is it important for a hangover? Because the cells of the brain and other tissues of the body after alcohol intoxication suffer from oxygen starvation.

  •  After drinking 1-2 glasses of brine, you can already begin to fully hydrate the body – drink water or fruit drink.

The best medicines and dietary supplements for a hangover

5. Alka-Seltzer

  •  One of the most popular hangover cures contains citric and acetylsalicylic acids, as well as sodium bicarbonate.

  •  The first is responsible for ensuring that the drug is absorbed by the body as soon as possible.

  •  Acetylsalicylic acid is the best friend of a hangover sufferer, because it will quickly relieve headache and muscle pain and relieve high fever.

  •  And sodium carbonate, in turn, neutralizes hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

4. Lemontar

  •  These inexpensive tablets contain succinic acid. It is a regulator of energy metabolism, and has a complex effect on the body. Including:

  1. antioxidant;
  2. improves the antitoxic function of the liver;
  3. protects cells from hypoxia;
  4. increases the secretion of gastric juice and increases appetite;
  5. contributes to the speedy removal of xenobiotics from the body – chemical compounds alien to the body.

  •  And this is not all the useful properties of succinic acid. You can use this tool not only for the treatment of a hangover, but also for its prevention. For this purpose, you need to take 1 tablet of Limontar 20-60 minutes before drinking alcohol.

3. Aspirin

  •  The simplest hangover headache cure. Its main active ingredient – acetylsalicylic acid – also thins the blood, preventing thrombosis in the vessels, relieves fever and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

  •  Remember that aspirin must be taken with water, and in no case with beer or other alcoholic beverage.

2. DrinkOFF

  •  The manufacturer added several useful components to this dietary supplement at once:

  • succinic acid;
  • citric acid;
  • ginger extract;
  • licorice extract;
  • ginseng extract;
  • guarana extract;
  • mate extract;
  • Eleutherococcus extract.

  •  DrinkOFF relieves hangover symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, body tremors, fatigue and loss of coordination. But it is best to take this remedy immediately after you feel that you have exceeded your dose of alcohol, then the improvement occurs very quickly (according to reviews – after 10-15 minutes).

  •  You can also take the capsules before bedtime, then the hangover in the morning may not come at all.

1. Medichronal

  •  Reviews for this tool are so good that they even inspire distrust. I mean Medichronal seems to be too effective to be true, doesn't it?

  •  Fortunately for hangover sufferers, this drug really helps in a short time to get rid of such unpleasant symptoms of a hangover as a headache, lack of appetite and a feeling of weakness throughout the body. It contains three active ingredients:

  1. Glucose Monohydrate: Helps hydrate the body and has a detoxifying effect. It eliminates dehydration problems such as fatigue and headaches and will usually make you feel better.
  2. Glycine: This amino acid and neurotransmitter reduces stress, makes you calmer and improves mental performance.
  3. Sodium formate (or, longer term, formic acid sodium salt): used in the food industry as a preservative, extending the life of products.

  •  Does Medichronal have any catch? Of course there is. This is his high price.
