The festive season has well and truly begun, and while we start to celebrate the year coming to a close, we love to get a glass of our favourite drink to cheers with.
But we can often regret our drinking the next morning and will try anything to get rid of the hangover beating our heads like a drum.
Now, a GP has decided to share with everyone some hangover cures that actually work, that we’re sure you’ll be writing down!
Manchester-based GP, Dr. Dan Robertson, revealed the following hangover cures to the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Start The Right Way
'Despite what you might have heard, eating isn't cheating. Fuelling up before you head out is actually a great idea, as "lining your stomach" will help your body absorb alcohol more slowly.’
Ditch The Fried Food
'Instead of a fry up, scientists have investigated more effective ways of getting your blood sugar levels back up.
'Poached eggs, asparagus and even Sprite have been suggested as a way of speeding up your recovery.'
It’s important to get super hydrated with water the night of rather than the morning after!
Have a glass of water between every alcoholic drink to lessen the chance of bad headaches the next day.
What Doesn’t Work
'While the endorphins released by some gentle exercise could help lift your spirits, if you're dehydrated it's very important to have some water handy and not over-exert yourself.’
'Unfortunately, it's also a diuretic, which means it'll make you go to the toilet more and make it harder to rehydrate.’
Hair of the Dog
More alcohol will dull your senses again but the effects of the hangover will STILL come.
