So things get a little crazy one night and the next morning, you're nursing a massive headache. And you just wish someone would just fix it!


And while time and rest may be your best defense buddy but what I am going to tell you will take the edge off. Just scroll down to find out. 

1. Bananas 

Bananas are a rich source of potassium and can help replenish the production of hormones that holds water in the body which otherwise gets blocked due to alcohol consumption.  

2. Eggs 

Drinking alcohol decreases the body’s storage of glutathione, which makes it hard to break down the toxic by-products of alcohol metabolism. Eating cysteine-rich eggs can increase glutathione in your body and possibly improve hangover symptoms. 

3. Watermelon 

Since the headache associated with a hangover is usually due to dehydration and decreased blood flow to the brain, eating watermelon may help increase blood flow and its high water content can help you rehydrate.  

4. Pickles 

Eating pickles or drinking their brine is another great way to boost your sodium levels and overcome your hangover.  

5. Crackers 

When the liver is processing alcohol, it no longer focuses on regulating blood sugar. Thus, eating crackers can increase your blood sugar during a hangover and improve related symptoms as it is a source of fast-acting carbs. 

6. Nuts 

Excessive alcohol consumption can deplete magnesium in your cells. As a result, refilling magnesium stores by consuming nuts can help treat hangover symptoms. 

7. Spinach 

Eating spinach can help you maintain adequate folate levels after drinking alcohol. 

8. Oatmeal 

Oatmeal is another food item that contains complex carbohydrates and provides a slow and steady release of sugar into the bloodstream and may help with hangover symptoms.  

9. Blueberries 

Blueberries is a rich source of nutrients that can fight inflammation in the body and comes in handy if someone is struggling with a hangover. 

10. Ginger 

The anti-nausea effects of consuming ginger make it a possible treatment for the upset stomach associated with hangovers. 

11. Tomatoes 

Tomatoes contain compounds that can counter the effects of excessive alcohol consumption on the liver. 

12. Sweet Potatoes 

Sweet potatoes contain high traces of vitamin A that help fight the inflammation associated with hangovers and magnesium that has the ability to replace what’s lost during alcohol consumption.  

13. Asparagus 

Asparagus is said to have the power to double the effectiveness of certain enzymes that help break down alcohol and also protect liver cells from damage.
