WATERSorry if this makes us disciples of Captain Obvious but we really couldn't compile a natural hangover cure list without including good old H20. It's tried and true and it will work better than probably any other remedy in this article as long as you remember one thing - stay sober enough to drink loads of it after you get home from partying or better yet, during. Speaking from personal experience, drinking one glass of water for every shot, glass or can of alcohol will almost guarantee you no hangover the next day and if you can't swing that, the next best thing is to chug 3 or 4 cups of water right before you hit the hay. But we all know that having the presence of mind to hydrate properly when you've had a bunch of cocktails is easier said than done, so you can still do it in the morning when you wake up - although an ounce of prevention could have saved you a pound(ing headache) of cure.
You might have heard that bananas are favored by athletes because they contain potassium and it’s that same reason that makes them great hangover cures. When you’re hungover, your body has lost a lot of potassium that needs to be replenished, so eating a banana when you wake up will provide much needed relief. If you’re super queasy and can’t stomach the idea of munching a whole banana, a banana smoothie laced with some drops of the next hangover fighter on our list is a more palatable way to feel human again. Or, if you’re still able to stand after you get home from drinking, having a banana before you pass out will help start the recovery process even sooner.
Honey is one of those miracle foods that has so many applications, and hangover help is one of them! The fructose in the sweet stuff helps your body metabolize the alcohol more and it also contains potassium, just like bananas. If you’re in a bad way, you can take two to six teaspoons of it every 20 minutes or until you feel better or you can combine its healing powers with bananas by using the recipe we linked to above for a double dose of feel-better.
