Women and alcohol. 5 effective ways to get rid of a hangover

Here are 5 proven remedies that will help  you to get rid of fatigue, headaches, thirst, nausea, and other characteristic symptoms.

A study by scientists in Denmark has shown that women suffer worse from the effects of alcohol poisoning than men, Science Nordic writes. However, the discomfort can still be alleviated by following simple rules (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).

Women have worse hangovers than men

Carbonated drinks

In 2013, Chinese scientists from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou found that carbonated drinks break down acetaldehyde, a byproduct of metabolized alcohol that can lead to nausea, headaches, and other symptoms.

The morning after the celebration, it's best to stock up on plain mineral water, or one that doesn't contain a lot of sugar. It will not only quench your thirst and prevent dry mouth, but also make you feel better overall.

Exercise

No matter how hard it is, experts advise getting out of bed and doing some exercise as soon as possible. They will give the body a signal to produce endorphins that will help you cope with a hangover.

It can be a general cleaning after a party, a morning jog, or even sex. A little effort will alleviate the symptoms, but will not make them disappear completely, so after exercising, it is better to try to fall asleep again.

Amino acids

In order not to put too much stress on the affected stomach, experts advise to give preference to a light snack made from foods rich in amino acids and minerals. For example, asparagus or zucchini will help the body absorb alcohol faster.

In addition, they protect liver cells from toxins. These findings were published in the Journal of Food Science based on a 2009 study conducted by Jeju National University in South Korea and the Institute of Medical Sciences.

Quitting coffee and smoking

Despite the myth that coffee after drinking energizes and helps to sober up, nutritionist Shauna Wilkinson warns that this drink can contribute to dehydration and act as a diuretic.

In addition, the chemicals in cigarettes can increase nausea and headaches, so it's best to put off smoking for later.

Better to give up coffee

Apple cider vinegar

Surprisingly, a small amount of apple cider vinegar can restore the body's PH level, which becomes more acidic after drinking alcohol. It also helps to restore blood sugar levels, but you need to be very careful with this remedy.
