Ya’ll get hangovers once in a while? Here is a squiz at yet another hangover cure drink…
You probably have your very own strategy, do you?… I hazard a guess it probably doesn’t work very well, I know the only foolproof method is not an option (ie. not getting smashed like a sausage in the first place). If you are like me when I wake up to a thumping sore head and feeling of being close to death – I’m so tired and sick that I can’t deal with spending the time or limited CPU memory to find the ‘cure’.
until now! you lucky little rascals
Next time you need it, reference this ‘natural cure’ and tell me how it goes. Get it down you either before bed or first thing in the morning.
HANGOVER CURE DRINK, METHOD:
Chuck it all into a blender, with ice if that floats your boat.
Coconut water: Hangover recovery starts with hydration. Coconut water provides more that double the electrolytes as sugary Gatorade.
Kiwi: Contains the same amount of potassium as a banana, but with less sugar.
Pear: Pears provide a good source of fiber and potassium.
Celery: It might seem bland, but celery has anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s rich in vitamin K, folate, vitamin A, potassium, and vitamin C.
Cucumber: Adds to your (much needed) hydration.
Ginger: Science suggests it can help decrease nausea and motion sickness.
Pineapple or pear juice: Helps with a sweet flavour because you want to enjoy your drink and you get instant energy from the fructose. Apple or cranberry juice ok too. Just stay away from OJ! And the bromelain found in pineapple juice may help to reduce the high levels of inflammation.
Unprocessed sea salt: Restores lost trace minerals from all the boozing. Himalayan works.
- Tumeric/Curcuma and peppercorns
- Peppermint tea
- Electrolyte drinks
DRUGS…. well not really, Vitamins!
- Vit B6
- Vit C
- Milk Thistle: Delivers antioxidant-rich silymarin to help protect and detoxify the liver by combating the free radicals produced by drinking.
- Prickly Pear Extract: Helps counter the effects of liver inflammation while easing morning-after symptoms (think nausea, dry mouth, headaches…)
- Red Ginseng and Green Tea Extracts: Naturally provide proven anti-inflammatory effects to counter potential inflammation caused by drinking.
- Taurine: Helps support healthy lipid metabolism in the liver.
- L-Cysteine: NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) Powerful amino acid that helps neutralise toxins in the liver by boosting levels of glutathione — an antioxidant that binds to the toxin acetaldehyde and breaks it down.
- Korean Pear Extract… if you can find it.
- DHM… f knows but it sounds good
A couple of my experiments in the pics. The beauty of smoothies is you can chuck what you want in and see how it goes.
