How to Cure a Hangover – 80 Twenty Nutrition

How to Cure a Hangover

So you had one too many drinks last night and your pounding head needs to know: how do you cure a hangover?

There is no “cure” per se, but there are things you can do to feel better faster!

Check out my latest YouTube video with Tessa Malisani, on-air personality for Virgin Radio Toronto. She asked me to put together a smoothie recipe that could help you kick your hangover to the curb.

I share the two reasons you feel so crummy after overdoing it on the alcohol:

  1. Dehydration
  2. Low Blood Sugar

You may have tried other so-called hangover cures like a greasy breakfast or chugging sports drinks like Gatorade, but you can do better – with my smoothie designed to replenish fluids, electrolytes and stabilize blood sugar.

The closest thing we have to a “hangover cure” is prevention. I know, too late now, but good to know for next time. Try to pace yourself by drinking a glass of water between each drink.

I like to order a vodka soda in a large glass so I’m getting more fluids, less alcohol, and it takes awhile to drink. Make sure you eat a good meal to help slow down the absorption of alcohol.

  1. Two words for you: THANK YOU. I get really horrible hang-overs and my go-to “cure” has always been noodles (don’t ask) which has never worked so I don’t know why I keep doing it! I must say I am hesitant about the spinach but this is worth a try.
