We love to socialize over a delicious cocktail or glass of wine. But when we cross the line, the day after can result in a dreadful hangover.


As I get older, I see my body changing in so many ways. Gray hair starts to pop up; my metabolism isn’t the same, and I get tired much faster than when I was younger. But to me, the most significant change was my resistance to alcohol.

Back in college, I could drink night after night, and the hangover would be gone in a few hours after popping an Advil. Now, I've passed 30, and a hangover after a night of drinking is dreadful. So if you’re looking for a way to minimize the terrible hangover after a night of imbibing, here are five remedies that are backed by science and will genuinely help you to relieve your misery.

Eat Before Drinking

This is a no-brainer to many people, but having a proper meal before you go out and indulge yourself with alcohol, will help your body delay the absorption of alcohol.

Foods that are high in fiber, such as beans, lentils, popcorn, carbs, proteins, and fats, should be your go-to meal before you walk out the door.

Too much alcohol dehydrates the body and worsens the hangover the day after a night of drinking. It’s vital to drink plenty of water so you can hydrate the body and it can go back to its natural rhythm. Although dehydration isn’t the only cause of a hangover, it contributes to many hangover symptoms.


Go To Sleep

Yes, get plenty of sleep! Fatigue, headaches, and irritability are all hangover symptoms that lack of sleep can exacerbate. Getting a good night’s sleep allows the body to recover from alcohol intoxication. So, curl up with a cup of tea and binge-watch Netflix in bed without feeling guilty.

Sunglasses and Advil

Sunglasses and Advil can be your best friends after a real mad night. Advil or other NSAIDs can help to ease some hangover symptoms such as a headache and muscle pain. Take a pill as soon as you wake up and preferably on a full stomach.

Try Herbs and Supplements

Supplements and herbs are ways to ease your hangover. Schisandra and Lion’s Mane are natural adaptogens that may enhance your cognitive functions.

Mixing ginger with brown sugar and tangerine extract may improve hangover symptoms. Supplementing with red ginseng may reduce the alcohol in the bloodstream.
