10 steps to cure a hangover

10 steps to cure a hangover
Even though we highly advice you drink responsively, there are times sh** gets out of hand and the best of us can get carried away.

Given that yesterday was Friday and some of us might have had more than we should have had, we will teach you top 10 steps to cure a hangover, and possibly even avoid one altogether.

Are you feeling sickness and having a raving thirst?, a heavy head, over-sensitivity to light and noise? worry no more — here are our 10 steps to cure a hangover if all else fails, ease that hungover feeling.

On the day

1. Do not drink on an empty stomach. Thats a 101. Milk and yogurt are excellent stomach liners, If you’re not going to be eating on your night out, have some plain yogurt with a banana, a bowl of cereal with milk or some cheese and biscuits before you venture out.

2. Cut down on fizzy alcoholic drinks – it really do go straight to your head. The bubbles they contain speeds up your absorption of alcohol, so limit the number of glasses of sparkling wine, fizzy cocktails and champagne.

3. Nightcap is a no no – spirits such as brandy or whisky have a higher level of compounds called congeners, which are formed during the fermentation and distilling process. These compounds are thought to make your hangover worse. With that been said, if you must have a nightcap make it a light-coloured spirit instead.

4. Before you call it a night, drink lots of plain water. This check-mates the hangover before it began.

The morning after

5. Don’t believe the lie – more alcohol wouldn’t cure the hangover. it’s really not the answer.

6. Have some oconut water, a sports drink or a rehydration drink as it will help to restore your hydration levels. You can make your own rehydration drink by dissolving a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of salt in a pint of water and sip throughout the morning.

7. Cut down the caffeine because drinking too many cups of tea or coffee will only aggravate hydration levels. A cup will do – until you’re feeling yourself again.

8. Replace the vitamins and minerals fast by eating a good food.

Even a bowl of breakfast cereal fortified with folate and iron should help to redress some of the damage and lift your energy levels. Alternatively, B-rich wholegrains such as a piece of wholemeal toast with a poached or scrambled egg, some grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and finish with a glass of orange juice.

9. Aspirin or ibuprofen is a no no – you might think they’ll sort your head out but they’ll only irritate your upset stomach further.

10. Stay away sugary drinks: Sugary drinks and foods will only add to your already unbalanced blood sugar levels.  Instead satisfy your sugar fix naturally by choosing fresh fruit for its vitamin and water content or blend yourself a fruit and yogurt smoothie.
