But, have you ever wondered why it happens every time you drink? Science has explained the facts why does drinking alcohol leads to hangover. Alcohol is nothing but acid and chemical, and when consumed with high on taste, processed food items also induce toxins in body. Hangovers happen when our livers struggle to clear out the excessive amount of toxins and chemicals ingested from too much alcohol. Our blood sugar dips. Our bodies are dehydrated, and overall fatigue takes over. And as a result all these symptoms of hangover are shown by body.

It is dangerous for the already overburdened lever to clear out chemicals and you are again taking medicine. Here, you should try the tried and tested home remedies, that won’t be harmful and will get you relief from the hangover faster than the medicine.

As I have mentioned earlier, the body has got toxins and its main objective is to detoxify. So, who else except for water can do that duty? When you’re hangover, sip on cool water. If you can’t drink in one shot (not required even) drink small amount if regular and short intervals.

If you are not feeling like to drink just water, then what you can do is you can go for lemonade. It’s really simple to prepare, just squeeze one full lemon into one glass of water, you can also add a pinch of salt and sugar if you want to, then just drink and relax. Lemon being famous as a cleansing agent, will work like a magical potion in this condition. It helps detoxify the body even faster and better when compared to just water.
When it comes to home hangover remedies, eating a banana or two is one of the most effective ways to combat hangover. Excessive alcohol intake can eliminate your body’s supply of potassium. Bananas, being one of the richest sources of potassium will fill you back up with this essential mineral quickly, safely and cheaply and will help you overcome the state of hangover and get back to regular routine.
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. You’ll surely get a helping hand even in the worst cases of hangovers with honey.
- Fruit Juice:
You might be feeling the need of a cup of coffee to fight the headache, but let me tell you coffee and other caffeinated beverages may make you feel a bit less groggy, but they aren’t helpful in conquering hangovers since they’re diuretics, which will dehydrate you even more. In this situation what you need is a fruit rush. Freshly squeezed varieties of fruit juice should be your priority. Drinking juice will help raise blood-sugar levels and replenishes your body with the essential vitamins depleted during drinking and will also help the body to detoxify.

Tomatoes are rich in the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that booze robs from your body. It also contains fructose with aids in metabolizing alcohol in your system. One of the best way to stop those tornados prevailing in your head is drink some tomato juice mixed with a little cayenne pepper, sugar, and lime.

Another easy and one of the most relaxing way is to take a detox bath; means you just need to sit in a bath tub filled with hot water. If possible add some salt, vinegar, baking soda or some oils like Lavender or Tea Tree oil in the water. This will give your body a relaxation from joint pains and will also ease the pressure and will fight the heavy head and head ache issues also.
