Ask any professional and they will tell you that you need to drink less to prevent a hangover. Moreover, there are no magic pills that will cure everything. But the reality is that even the experts themselves can sort it out. To ward off the onslaught of nausea, headache, and general weakness that often accompany the morning after a night of alcohol, try a few proven recipes BEFORE YOU TAKE ALCOHOL.
1. DOUBLE THE DOSE OF MULTIVITAMINS
Many people believe that hangovers are caused by dehydration (lack of fluid in the body). But often this is the result of completely different processes. Therefore, taking antioxidants will be a good prevention. Take an extra multivitamin tablet or drink a glass of pomegranate juice.
2. ORDER BURGER INSTEAD OF SALAD
Of course, you don't want to overeat, but you don't need to. A hangover is often associated not with the amount of alcohol consumed, but with alcohol metabolism, but it directly depends on the volume of food eaten. Make sure you eat both protein and fat and carbohydrates before drinking your first serving. Eating red meat, for example, is a great source of beneficial amino acids and B vitamins, which help you cope with the breakdown products of alcohol faster.
It sounds strange, but many people do not get enough sleep on a regular basis. A good sleep may not save you a hangover, but it will make your body able to cope with a tough night with minimal repercussions.
4. DO NOT DRINK CHAMPAGNE (PARDON, SPARKLING)
Bubbles speed up the absorption of alcohol, and you get drunk faster. As a result, you have a more severe hangover.
5. DRINK WATER OR SPORT DRINKS
It doesn't hurt to drink soft drinks between drinks, which will restore fluid and electrolyte balance in the body.
6. DO NOT SMOKE
A study of the bad habits of 113 American college students who recorded alcohol intake, cigarette smoking, and hangover symptoms over eight weeks showed that smoking greatly increases the risk of morning sickness.
7. INTERFERE WITH TRANSPARENT
Vodka and gin contain fewer toxins and by-products than dark drinks like whiskey and rum.
8. WASH HANDS
Another strange advice, but drinking alcohol changes the functioning of the immune system, and if you feel signs of an impending illness, then after alcohol intoxication you will be sick longer and more severely.
9. DRINK EXPENSIVE ALCOHOLS
It is better refined and causes less hangovers. Plus, if you're on a budget, you'll end up drinking less.
Or play billiards and ping-pong, speed up the blood and digest the drunk faster. And don't forget a glass of water before having fun!
11. DO NOT OVERRIDE WITH WATER
Drinking it during a party is good, but pumping up like a fountain is also not worth it: it will be more difficult for the body, plus you will have to run to the toilet at night. So before bed, drink a glass and a half and put another one next to the bed - in the morning.
12. PUT ON THE SLEEP MASK
If the party drags on until dawn, you may fall asleep for a long time and have difficulty waking up. Reduce the influence of light on sleep, then the hangover will go faster.
13. ACCEPT IBUPROFEN
It definitely won't hurt and is compatible with alcohol, unlike most other headache medications.
In the morning
14. DO NOT HOOK ON ALCOHOL
It can give short-term relief, but it gets worse afterwards.
15. EAT THE EGG
It is a source of cysteine, which reduces the effects of the toxin that causes headaches after drinking. Boiled eggs or scrambled eggs are your perfect breakfast.
16. DO NOT DRINK HERBAL TEA
Chinese scientists have found that such teas slow down the process of alcohol processing and lengthen hangovers. That's it!
