Had a bit too much fun last night? Yeah, we've all been there. Last night was a blast (#NoRegrets), but today you wake up feeling drier than the Sahara desert.
Headache, extreme thirst, lack of energy-- all symptoms of a hangover and dehydration that are not enjoyable. Everybody has their go-to hangover beverage, whether it's Gatorade, Pedialyte, or more alcohol (looking at you, hair of the dog). But which beverage is best? Not surprisingly, H2O reigns supreme. But there are a lot of other hydrating beverage options to help ease your symptoms, improve your energy, and restore those expended fluids and electrolytes. Whatever you can stomach, right?
So we assembled all the beverages you need to recharge after a hangover. Hello, hydration.
1. But first: Water
Obviously, we know, but very important: Include plenty of water throughout the day to help soothe your hangover troubles.
Ever notice how much more often you need to pee when you're drinking? Alcohol is a strong diuretic, causing you to drain your body of fluids-- as well as the essential vitamins and minerals in them-- much a lot faster than normal.
So sip that water throughout the day to help restore balance and flush out toxins. Bonus points for adding lemon to your agua, which will not only make it taste better but also give you a dose of immune-boosting vitamin C.
2. Indulge in a (virgin) morning Bloody Mary
Incorporate a Bloody Mary with your breakfast-- just be sure to make it virgin.
Tomatoes are 95 percent water, so you can be certain they're going to help on the hydration front.
In addition, tomatoes offer an abundance of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds, which may help your body recover from a hangover.
Some research has shown that tomato products have liver-protective and anti-inflammatory benefits because of their high concentration of strong antioxidants such as lycopene.
3. Sip bone broth at lunch
Bone broth is chock-full of good-for-you nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, and the detoxification-supporting amino acid glycine.
The anti-inflammatory agents and magnesium found in bone broth may also help soothe headaches.
And if you're feeling a little queasy or having trouble keeping food down, sipping on bone broth can be easier on your stomach while still providing electrolytes, vitamins, and protein.
4. Go cuckoo for coconut water
Sports beverages are a popular choice for curing post-party woes.
Like sports drinks, coconut water has plenty of electrolytes such as magnesium and potassium. Unlike sports drinks, coconut water does not have added sugars or artificial ingredients.
This makes coconut water a more natural (yet still tasty) way to replenish.
5. Ginger tea to relax
Ginger is a popular (and proven) treatment for nausea, so definitely incorporate it throughout your day if you're feeling like the green-faced emoji.
Even if you're not particularly nauseated, finish your hungover day with a warm cup of ginger tea. Ginger offers effective anti-inflammatory benefits and antioxidant properties.
A soothing herbal tea before bed will help you get a peaceful night's sleep-- something you likely didn't have the night before.
