Waking up with a pounding head, dry mouth, and a spinning room is not the greatest feeling after a heavy night out. And while there are many home remedies that are supposed to help, many of these are unhelpful or unhealthy. So instead why not look to nature for the ultimate hangover cure. Fear not, we have all the best remedies to cure a hangover in an instant.
Look for fruits high in potassium
Potassium plays an important role in a hangover cure, as it is an electrolyte that works well with sodium, to maintain the body’s fluid balance. As we know, alcohol wreaks havoc on dehydration, therefore eating potassium will help replenish lost electrolytes.
- What to eat: avocados, tomatoes, bananas, and potatoes are a great source, so try oatmeal with chopped banana or a cooked breakfast with tomatoes potatoes and avocado on toast.
Boost your protein levels
Protein is not only filling, but it also provides the building blocks of what our bodies need. Eating protein will make you feel a lot better and help your body recharge.
- What to eat: eggs, salmon, nuts, fiber, quinoa, meat. For vegetarians, try beans and legumes. Do we hear breakfast burrito?
Look for B-Vitamins
Amongst other negative things, alcohol actually inhibits the absorption of B-vitamins that our bodies rely upon to function. These vitamins support our metabolism and provide energy for the day ahead and you won’t feel better until you get these vitamin levels up.
- What to eat: fiber-rich cereal, fish, and plain greek yogurt. Dark leafy vegetables, fruits, and nuts are also great sources, so having a bowl of greek yogurt with nuts and berries will do the trick.
