Hangover Cure Tips


Hangover Cure Techniques

Painkillers

First, make sure the painkiller isn’t acetaminophen. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is metabolized by the liver and the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen can cause your liver to release a toxic metabolite. Alcohol mixed with acetaminophen is very dangerous and can do serious damage to your liver. Tylenol was recently forced to include warnings on its packaging telling its users not to mix it with alcohol. Ibuprofen and naproxen sodium are better, but can cause stomach bleeding and lead to kidney damage if used long term (longer than two weeks). Aspirin, taken with milk and food, is another option but it can also cause stomach bleeding when used long term in combination with alcohol. A simple rule: Never take aspirin before you.

Water

As we said above alcohol causes dehydration that why some people think that if they drink a lot of water in the end of the night, the problem will be solved. Too much water can lead to hyponatremia called also “water intoxication,” which dilutes the sodium in the body and can be fatal. Remember, the standard guideline of 12 eight-ounce glasses a day should be adequate for rehydration. Some scientists claim that fruit juice is more suitable for solving the problem because it contains fructose. The fructose speeds up the rate at which the body rid itself of toxins.

Taurine

It is common ingredient in energy drinks and also available in supplement form. This ingredient helps to reverse liver damage caused by a night of heavy drinking and it also is helping the body to flush out toxins more quickly. Energy drinks often contain caffeine which on its part also helps to constrict cerebral blood vessels, alleviating that headache the next day. But be aware that caffeine is a diuretic and may exacerbate dehydration. You can take Taurine from products like meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products and fish.

Pedialyte

Usually Pedialyte is used for babies who have diarrhea. Pedialyte contains more electrolytes which makes rehydration more quick. You can take it from fruits, grape or bubble gum flavor.

Fried food

Fry food is the best example for fatty food. All kind of fried food is recommended and will help you to get rid of the headache and other unpleasant feelings. Researches show that both egg yolks and garlic contain cysteine, an amino acid that binds and neutralizes acetaldehyde. What we are trying to say is that all those carbohydrates help stabilize blood sugar and neutralize stomach acid.

Marmite or Vegemite on toast

Made from brewer’s yeast, Marmite and Vegemite both contain vitamin B complex, folic acid, and salt, all of which are depleted after alcohol consumption. Marmite has useful quantities of vitamins, even in small servings. Sodium (salt) content of the spread is high and has caused concern, but the amount per serving, not the percentage in bulk Marmite, is the significant factor. Each 5g Marmite gives Thiamin 50%, Riboflavin 25%, Niacin 25%, Folate 50%, Vitamin B12 25% and iron 15%. Vegemite is a dark brown savoury food paste made from yeast extract, used mainly as a spread on sandwiches, toast and cracker biscuits. Vegemite is rich in B vitamins, but unlike Marmite and some other yeast extracts, it is not artificially fortified with the essential B-12 vitamin.

Ginger

Ginger is a powerful antioxidant and anticoagulant. Whether taken in pill form, in tea, or in a juice, it may counteract some of that hungover wooziness.

In the United States, ginger is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration, though it is not approved for the treatment or cure of any disease and is sold as an unregulated dietary supplement.

In China, a drink made with sliced ginger cooked in sweetened water or a cola is used as a folk medicine for common cold.

In Indonesia, a type of ginger known as Jahe is used as a herbal preparation to reduce fatigue, reducing “winds” in the blood, prevent and cure rheumatism and controlling poor dietary habits.

Soups such as menudo, haejangguk, pho, or borscht. Soups hold an honored place as hangover cures in many countries, with various ingredients, such as tomatoes, cabbage, and tripe, ascribed medicinal qualities. Soup rehydrates the dehydrated, pump up the protein and blood sugar levels, and slows the rate of alcohol absorption.

The soup menudo is a traditional Mexican dish. Typical condiments added to menudo are dried oregano, epazote, ground chili flakes, lime juice, fresh cilantro and chopped onion.

Haejangguk is one of the favorite soups for hangover cure in Korean cuisine. It consists usually of meaty pork spine, dried cabbage, coagulated ox blood and vegetables in a hearty beef broth.

Pho is served as a bowl of white rice noodles in clear beef broth, with thin cuts of beef (steak, fatty flank, lean flank, brisket). Variations featuring tendon, tripe, meatballs, chicken leg, chicken breast, or other chicken organs (heart, liver, etc.) are also available.

Borscht is a vegetable soup from Eastern Europe which contains beets, onions, celery/parsley, leek, cabbage, kielbasa (Polish Sausage), tomatoes, rye flour, butter, salt, lemon juice and dairy sour cream.

Honey

Like fruit juice, honey has a lot of fructose and glucose, and it’s full of antioxidants.

Hangover pills

Classified as dietary supplements (so they’re not regulated) and sold under names like Sob’r-K Hangover Stopper, Soberfast, RU-21, Rebound, and Uncle Rummie’s Hangover Helper, these hangover treatments mostly rely on pharmaceutical-grade activated carbon or charcoal, which can be used to treat alcohol poisoning. Although no independent studies have been done, some people swear by them. Others point out that the pills contain so little activated charcoal that they may well have no effect.
