Hangover Hack #1: Eat Fats and Protein

Eat foods with plenty of fat and protein before and while drinking. Studies show that these kinds of foods slow the rate of absorption of alcohol. So don’t worry about your diet while drinking; it’s okay to have a chicken wing or two!

Hangover Hack #2: Drink Electrolytes

Electrolytes are most commonly found in sports drinks like Gatorade or Pedialyte. They keep you hydrated and help replace the salt and potassium you lose while drinking.

Activated charcoal soaks up sugars, metabolites, and toxins from your bloodstream. It’s more than just a hangover hack: this cure is used in hospitals as a treatment for people suffering from alcohol poisoning. Here are the ingredients you need to make activated charcoal lemonade:

  • Two or three fresh lemons
  • A teaspoon of black charcoal (two or three capsules)
  • Maple syrup or honey
  • 8 to 12 oz of water

A liver cleanser can be used to detox your system. This will help remove the alcohol your liver has absorbed, reducing the symptoms of a hangover. Hopefully these hangover hacks will help you recover from your next night of drinking!
