Banana made it to the top of our list because of it’s awesomeness at destroying Hangovers. Due to research, our friends at ThehealthyDrinker discovered that Banana being made of 75% water, a huge winner to reduce that dehydration in your body caused by your hangover, also contains huge amount of Vitamin C and B6 which help neutralize the effect of Hangover and prevent liver damage from excess Drinking. Bananas are also loaded with lots and lots of natural sugars that replenishes the body after a fun weekend of fun, drinks and small chops. Hey! Why not give it a try.
Oh yeah! You heard it right!
Eggs are great at curing Hangovers. Ask me why. Ok. Let’s get into the science. Eggs contain large amounts of amino acid called Cysteine. During the break-down of the alcohol in your system(that moment you’re feeling the headache), a toxic substance called Acetaldehyde is produced as by-product in your liver. And this is bad for you! So Eggs which contain Cysteine, help neutralize this by-product, and end up curing your Hangover. Ain’t that great! In case there are no Bananas around, check around for some eggs and make that delicious omelette. Nice!
Yes! Number 3 on our list for curing Hangovers, sweet taste included too, HONEY!
Honey is praised by Food Scientists for it’s ability to aid the body in quickly breaking down all the alcohol you consume and as a great recipe for serious hangovers. It contains some Antioxidant properties that help neutralize toxins from alcohol. It contains Fructose, which is used by the body to convert our villain, Acetaldehyde, into Acetic acid which is less toxic and is naturally broken down by the body. No stress involved, just sweet, as HONEY!
We gotta have some nuts ready to get nibbled. It’s great how nuts help you reduce hangovers because they contain a lot of protein, vitamin E and other nutrients which make them the hero for our headache. It also help if we take them during drinking, to prevent a possible hangover from ever happening in the first place. Another tip is that Salted ones help even out the Soaring Blood sugar in our body system. Thank me later, when your done nibbling and your Hangover’s gone.
