5 Ways to Fight a Hangover, Brooklyn, New York

For all the joys of drinking, hangovers can still cast a heavy cloud over the experience. This common consequence of alcohol consumption can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms—such as excessive thirst, fatigue, headaches, nausea, and sensitivity that can last all day following your night of fun. But if hangovers have you second-guessing adding cocktails to your celebration, here are a few strategies that can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

5 Hangover Prevention Tips

1. Hydrate

As a diuretic, alcohol causes your body to lose essential fluids and nutrients. This dehydration will result in inflammation that can contribute to headaches, fatigue, and other hangover symptoms. As such, it’s best to drink water throughout the night—such as by having a glass between every cocktail. Since you’ll need to replace lost sodium, it’s also helpful to consume hydrating beverages that contain electrolytes—such as coconut water.

2. Eat Before & While You Drink

cocktailEating a meal before you drink can help slow your body’s absorption of alcohol, and in turn, lower your blood alcohol content. Since alcohol can lower your blood sugar temporarily, it’s a good idea to snack on foods that contain carbohydrates—such as bread.

3. Put Sleep on Your Schedule

Although the lack of sleep won’t directly determine if you get a hangover, it can add to the symptoms—especially fatigue. If you’re planning a night out, make sure you’ll get home in time to sleep a full eight hours.

4. Swallow Some Supplements

There are several natural supplements that help reduce the hangover-causing effects of alcohol consumption. For example, research suggests that red ginseng can help regulate metabolism to reduce the likelihood of symptoms. Prickly pear supplements, on the other hand, offer a unique blend of benefits that can help prevent inflammation and blood sugar drops associated with drinking.

5. Stick to Simple Meals in the Morning

It’s not uncommon to wake up with a hankering for a big meal. However, you should avoid complex or overly processed foods, as their ingredients may intensify the hangover. Instead, opt for nutritional breakfast foods that are easy to digest—such as eggs, toast, fruit, and potatoes.
