Up for drinks this Christmas Eve?
Worried about the after party hangover woes?
Here are the best tips to keep them at bay!
Do not drink on an empty stomach:
As a matter of fact, food helps slow the absorption of Alcohol. So, the best thing to do before getting intoxicated with the Christmas drinks is to binge on all those burgers and fries and pizzas and more!
Doing so causes the fat to stick to the stomach lining for a longer time. This further causes the alcohol to take a longer time to reach into your bloodstreams. I know this won’t keep the hangover at bay but it would at least help dilute the effects of alcohol, and in turn, the hangover for sure.
This is the most important rule when it comes to dealing with the after-effects of Christmas drinks. Alcohol tends to flush out water from your body through frequent urination. So, it’s imperative that you keep hydration at the top of your priority list.
It’s advisable to have a large glass of water before starting on the alcohol, followed by a glass between each alcoholic drink. Consider adding natural electrolyte concentrate to the water so as to ensure that your body remains hydrated. Alternatively, you can replace normal water with coconut water as it is rich in electrolyte minerals.
Have coffee and honey-toast for breakfast:
Coffee has long been the very first choice for many when it comes to curing hangovers. That’s because coffee helps wake you up. You can have a honey toast along with your cup of coffee.
What makes us say that? Well, a heavy-duty brown toast with a spread of honey along with decaffeinated coffee would actually provide a slower-burning but quick-acting form of energy to settle your stomach and drag you out of the horrible hangover.
Opt for the milk thistle remedy:
Lastly, you can rely on this tried and tested a remedy for curing hangovers. After a Christmas Eve full of heavy drinks and entertainment, you’ll need this life-saving remedy to get out of that dizzy, shaky state.
Milk thistle effectively helps protect the liver cells from damage, including that resulting from alcohol, and reduce inflammation in the liver.
Now that you know the most effective ways of handling your Christmas party hangover, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit right away!
