5 Healthy Hangover Cures for your Christmas Party



It’s like they say at school – the best form of contraception is not having it. Unfortunately, the same could be said about hangovers; the best cure, without a doubt, would be not drinking in the first place.  However, it’s highly unlikely anyone will heed this sage advice, especially over Christmas, so we’ve come up with five of the healthiest hangover cures to relieve you of some of the pain you’re bound to inflict upon yourself during the Yuletide season  (and there’s no mention of the infamous ‘hair of the dog’ anywhere!)....


Drink water in between alcoholic drinks




Those four simple words ‘drink plenty of water’ seem to associate themselves with every affliction under the sun, be it a cold, a fever or, dare we say it, the often fatal ‘man flu.’ But then again, water is the source of all known life so we can sort of accept it.

In terms of a cure, this one’s more of a preventative than anything else, but considering a hangover is basically a form of dehydration, it makes sense that drinking water can only help. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it increases your trips to the bathroom so it’s important to top those fluid levels back up. Ideally, have a glass of water for every alcoholic beverage and reap the benefits come morning.


...And coconut water the morning after




Come the next day, it’s important to continue rehydrating yourself, but try drinking coconut water for even faster results. It’s full of potassium, which will have you feeling better in no time, and is a pleasant alternative between the gallons of H20 you need to consume.


Eat eggs to absorb the toxins




Easy to cook, and even easier on the stomach, eggs are a great hangover cure as long as you can resist serving them with their notorious partners in crime, sausage and bacon. Though you might be craving it, a traditional cooked breakfast will only make things worse as the greasy foods are not easily digestible.

Instead, stick with eggs, as their high levels of cysteine will help to absorb the toxins from the alcohol, while the protein will keep you fuller for longer, meaning your stomach isn’t unnecessarily disturbed.


Fruit to replace lost vitamins





Fructose, the natural sugar found in fruit, will naturally boost your body’s energy, which will not only help you to feel better, but will increase the rate at which the body cleanses itself of the toxins. The vitamins and nutrients will also replace those lost from the diuretic effect of alcohol, while the fibre will soak up any leftover toxins.

In particular, bananas are additionally effective as they are high in potassium sand electrolytes, both of which will have been lost during the excessive trips to the loo, and are vital if you want to start feeling human again anytime soon.


...and then back to bed to sleep it off


You might feel as if you’ve had a wonderfully deep sleep following your night of debauchery, but in actual fact alcohol-induced slumber isn’t particularly effective. As your body experiences withdrawal effects come the early hours of morning (presuming you’ve already gone to bed), it is highly likely you’ll rise from the covers prematurely. Have some eggs, drink some water, perhaps pop a banana, and then head straight back to bed (as if you needed an excuse!) – it’s amazing how effective the body is at healing itself. Plus, if you’re asleep, that’s less time experiencing the hangover. Winner.
