Hair of the dog

No, not dog hair. The term ‘the hair of the dog that bit you’ refers to the remedy of drinking a little of the same alcoholic drink that you consumed the night before, during your hangover period to help ease the drastic hangover effects that your body is going through. Experts say it’s just prolonging the inevitable, although some swear by this remedy.

 

 

Fruit Juices

Fruit juices are supposedly a great booster drink the morning after, especially citrusy fruit juices such as orange juice, as it helps replenish vitamins and sugar levels in your body, thus easing the symptoms of a hangover. If you’re prone to have stomach upsets during your hangover, skip the orange juice, however, and go for something non-acidic like carrot and apple juice.

 

 

Hot Honey Lemon

There’s something about a warm honey lemon drink that feels so good on the inside when being consumed during a hangover. Squeeze a lemon in to hot or warm water, add a table spoon or two of honey, and enjoy it while it’s warm. The honey in the drink will help raise glucose levels in the body, thus giving you energy.

 

 

Sport drinks

Sport drinks are also a popular choice for a hangover remedy as their main aim of replacing lost liquids and electrolytes in the body during exercise also applies well during a hangover.

 

 

Coffee

If you’re a person to enjoy a cuppa joe in the mornings before work, then this might help you get through your day better. Caffeine, while helping you to be alert, can cause migraines and headaches in some others, so just be weary. Also, make sure you drink lots and lots of water as caffeine, just like alcohol, is a dehydrating agent.

 

 

Holy Water

Also known as sky juice. Plain water is the healthiest liquid you can ever drink, not to mention it’s super easy to prepare. Alcohol is very dehydrating, as you should have guessed from your frequent trips to the bathroom / urinal during your party night. Drink lots of H2O to rehydrate your body the day after.

 

 

In the end, the best hangover remedies differ from person to person. To each his own. And if you ever feel like you really messed up this time, take comfort in knowing that at least you don’t have a starving tiger sitting in your bathroom.
