Drinking can be fun… really fun sometimes. You’re out with your friends (or home alone watching Netflix… it’s fine we don’t judge). You’re having a good, and then morning comes around and BAM it hits you like a freight train. There’s the nasty hangover. After a night of drinking alcohol, you might find yourself with a bad hangover, which can look something like nausea, a headache, being thirsty, muscle aches, and tiredness. Here are some of the best natural remedies to cure a hangover.
When you’re hungover, you’re probably dehydrated, but it’s not enough to just drink water. A lot of the time your body will need to replenish its store of electrolytes as well. Coconut water is a great source of both hydration and electrolytes.
Have a Smoothie
Having a nutrient packed smoothie before and after drinking can actually help you have a less severe hangover. You want to pack it full of antioxidants like blueberries, dark chocolate, almonds, and spinach. Throw in some banana for potassium and blendwith almond milk! If you know you’re going to be doing some drinking, have one before your night of fun and also drink one in the morning.
Epsom Salt Bath
Relaxing in an Epsom salt bath can be soothing to sore muscles caused from a hangover, and it will also help you to detox from the alcohol. Draw up a nice hot bath, pour in some Epsom salts, and relax.
Kombucha is a fermented tea that has lots of good stuff in it like probiotics and naturalenzymes. Drinking some kombucha can help you feel better after a hangover since it will give you nutrients and help your digestive tract recover.
Take Milk Thistle
Milk thistle is a liver loving supplement that you can get in a capsule, in a tea, or even mixed into other drinks. Because it helps to cleanse the liver, it can help your body process alcohol and help you recover from your hangover faster.
