7 Best Hangover Foods

After a great night of fun and over indulging there’s nothing worse than a massive hangover headache that can potentially destroy your day. The good news is that you don’t have to spend the next day hunched over a toilet, sound familiar?

Researchers found that what you eat before, during and after you drink could drastically reduce your risk of a morning hangover.

However, if you did overindulge the night before reach out for food and drinks that relieve hangovers rather than the medicine cabinet. It’ll be feeling refreshed and back to your old self in no time. Try to eat organic because your liver is already working hard at processing last night’s mistakes and doesn’t need to deal with toxic and pesticides in your choice of non-organic food.  Following is 7 best hangover foods to help ou recover faster from your overindulgence.

1. Asparagus

Asparagus has an enzyme that breaks down alcohol and eating them after a night out drinking also can help tame the hangover. Generally, eating before drinking will allow your body to process the alcohol in your stomach instead of it going straight to your bloodstream. Resulting in less toxic buildup and more tolerable hangover.

2. Prickly Pear

This fruit has anti-inflammatory agents that can help offset the damage done by drinking alcohol. Research has found that drinkers who take pear cactus extract five hours before drinking had 50% fewer hangover symptoms than drinkers who went without the extract. You can eat, drink the extract in a tea form or take a tablet to prevent a hangover.

3. Coconut Water

Most people would reach out for a sports drink when they wake up with a hangover. While the electrolyte-rich drinks help your body chemistry back into shape, they also contain artificial components that are bad for us.

Coconut water is a natural electrolyte-boosting drink that is natural and has no nasty chemicals or artificial additives or colours. A good organic choice is the Navitas Naturals Coconut Water Powder.

4. Bananas

The reason you feel weak after a night of drinking is that alcohol depletes your levels of potassium in your body. To improve muscle function and your levels of potassium eat a banana.

5. Honey

Have a spoon of honey the day after drinking. Real honey is loaded with antioxidants and fructose, which will help flush alcohol out of your system quickly.

6. Quinoa

Quinoa is loaded with amino acid the building blocks of protein and the very thing that alcohol depletes.

7. Tomato juice

Organic tomato juice will provide your body with vitamins and minerals that alcohol has depleted. Tomato juice also hydrates and the fructose in the juice will help flush out the alcohol.
