2. Have a cup of coffee.

The results of a 2010 study were published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE and showed that the caffeine in coffee helps to regenerate you giving you a “false energy boost” and give your adrenaline a much-needed shot in the arm. One cup will do the job as coffee can also dehydrate you.

 

3. Drink lots of water.

Alcohol dehydrates your body and even though you may not be craving fluids when you have a hangover, sipping on some water will begin to replenish your fluid levels. If you can drink a couple of glasses of water before going to sleep before you have a hangover you could be ahead of the game.

 

4. Take a couple of aspirins.

Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as regular aspirin, will go a long way toward easing the pain brought on from a headache. Take a couple of aspirin and relax; before you know it, you will have one less symptom to deal with.

5. Have a piece of toast or some crackers.

If you are feeling nauseous or have an upset stomach, chances are nothing is going to sound good to you. Munching on a few crackers, or a piece of dry toast, will help calm your stomach down while keeping your blood sugar levels from dropping too low due to not eating.

 

6. Sip a cup of ginger tea.

Ginger has long been recognized as calming an upset stomach. Ginger tea is a nice calming way to let this herb take over. A study that was published in 2003 in the American Journal of Physiology concluded that the soothing tea was effective in reducing both motion sickness and nausea.

 

7. Go bananas.

Researchers found that eating bananas along with pretzels was able to bring an end to dehydration and begin the process of returning the body’s electrolytes back to normal. A nutritionist in NJ discovered that eating both of these foods together worked quickly to replenish the carbohydrates that the body loses when the liver begins to detoxify itself during a hangover.
