The body seems to use hangovers as a warning mechanism to warn us about the dangers of overindulgence.
Because drinking disrupts brain function while you sleep, a hangover might be considered a sort of sleep deprivation. The hormones that control our biological clocks are thrown off by alcohol, which may be why a hangover can feel like jet lag and vice versa.
Check out these 5 cures for a hangover to help you get some relief from the symptoms.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Pour 1 to 2 ounces of Purely into 6 to 8 ounces of warm water to start your morning. In addition to helping to normalize blood sugar levels, which can be erratic after a night of drinking, vinegar has a natural diuretic action that can assist fight morning fluid retention.
This is a good source of cysteine, an amino acid that aids in the breakdown of some of the harmful byproducts of alcohol metabolism that are known to be a factor in hangovers. Eggs are a far healthier way to start the day than sugary cereal or pancakes with syrup since they are a fantastic source of protein and lipids that can assist to balance blood sugar levels.
Although it's probably the second-to-last thing on your list of priorities after drinking beet juice, exercise will help. Even a brisk stroll will help to improve circulation, which will send more blood and oxygen to the brain and muscles, reducing the effects of a hangover including headaches and sore muscles. And one of the most all-natural methods to detoxify our bodies is to work up a sweat.
Consider combining green tea (instead of water) and apple cider vinegar to obtain the advantages of both, which may help reduce headache symptoms. Additionally, you can use flavored green tea, such as berry mix or ginger mint green tea, to at least somewhat mask the flavor of the apple cider vinegar.
Smoothies made with unsweetened almond milk, fresh or frozen fruit, and protein will provide you with fluids, electrolytes, and protein all in one. By adding Purely into your preferred smoothie mix, you may get all of the health benefits of ACV while on the go. Only a tiny amount—perhaps a tablespoon—is required. A range of smoothie tastes will go well with our fresh fruit infusions.
