minimise the hangover..

we all know alcohol isn't good for us, but for most of us.. we still want to drink it and we still want to have a crazy night out which we regret the next morning because of the hangover that it gives us. but least we can try and make it a little less worse.

Water is best cure for a hangover as it re-hydrates you from the loss of water over the night. Drink more than eight glasses of water a day when you are recovering. It is also important to drink lots of water before you go to bed that night

When you are drunk and constantly peeing, potassium is drained from your body. Eating a banana will give you some giddy-up and go because of the potassium contained in the banana.

Ginger has helped nausea and sea sickness in the past and being hung over is much like being seasick in which drinking ginger ale will help.

Food is normally one of the last things you want to look at when you’re hung over but you will need some to gain energy. Start off with something mild such as plain toast, rice or soup.

Place ice on your head either wrapped in a dry towel or paper towel, it’s cooling for an aching headache.

Sport drinks are helpful to replace fluids as well as electrolytes and glucose. Freshly squeezed orange juices will help raise your bloody sugar levels and help ease of some of your hangover symptoms. But if you have an upset stomach, then avoid acidic juices and stick to apple juice instead.

So now that you know this, you can drink up but do remember to take it easy and don't make a fool of yourself.
