Experts offer tips for hangover remedies
Experts say some of the best remedies after a night of drinking are keeping hydrated and eating certain nutritious foods.
Hangover symptoms include fatigue, dehydration, headache or muscle aches, dizziness, shakiness, and a rapid heartbeat.
However, experts say there are things you can do to mitigate the effects.
They recommend not drinking alcohol on an empty stomach because it could make a hangover worse.
The US National Library of Medicine recommends drinking a glass of water in between alcoholic drinks.
Experts says drinking generous amounts of water the next day will also help ease hangover symptoms.
Alcohol can impair the body's absorption of certain nutrients, experts say, specifically, vitamin A, zinc, potassium, and B vitamins so they recommend eating the right foods the day after a night of drinking.
Vitamin A can be found in butter and eggs, or veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach or broccoli.
Animal products like fish, poultry, beef or dairy have B vitamins and nuts, whole grains and beans contain zinc.
Avocados or bananas can offer a boost of potassium.
Experts also suggest avoiding medications containing acetaminophen, which can cause liver damage when combined with alcohol.
They say you should avoid "the hair of the dog" and agree the best way to ward off a hangover is to not drink, or to drink in moderation.
