Try these smart hacks to deal with the nasty symptoms of a hangover
Hydrate your body with WATER- To begin with, you need to understand what alcohol does to your body? Alcohol is a diuretic and severely dehydrates your body—it is as simple as that. So, have lots of water to replenish your body, dilute the impurities left behind in your body and flush out toxins. Try to have at least 2 litres of water throughout the day.

You can also have coconut water and electrolyte-replenishing sports drinks as they are rich in potassium and electrolytes replace the ones being depleted by your body. Electrolytes get depleted when the body eliminates alcohol. Avoid aerated drinks as it can make your hangover worse.
Lemon - Lemon with warm water can help reduce dizziness and sensitivity to light and muscle pain. It is good for the liver, which is the main detoxifying organ in your body, and flushes out all the toxins efficiently.
Banana - Wondering why bananas are good for hangovers? Excessive drinking causes loss of potassium in the body. Having a banana is a great way to replace the lost B vitamins, potassium and other minerals. Not only do they give you an instant energy boost but they also calm the queasiness in your stomach. You can either have bananas along with your breakfast or have it as a milkshake with honey.
Honey–The fructose in honey makes it an excellent cure for a hangover. Fructose is a type of sugar that helps to break down the alcohol in the body, which in turn makes you feel better. You can have 3 to 4 teaspoons of honey at regular intervals through the day or have it with lemon and hot water and sip it through the day.
Tomato juice–A novel way to fight your hangover symptoms is to down some tomato juice—it is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes to help you do just that. It also contains fructose, which metabolizes the alcohol in your body. You can either blitz a tomato and have fresh tomato juice or have some tomato soup from the nearest deli. Can’t move out of your house? Then keep some canned tomato soup at home for hangover emergencies so you’re always prepared.
Toast and egg - After a night of partying and drinking we either tend to skip breakfast the next day or give into our craving for greasy food. Bad idea. If you eat right when you’re suffering from a hangover, your recovery will be faster. Go for something wholesome and simple like toast and eggs. Toast provides carbohydrates that aid in recovery and eggs contain taurine, which helps your liver break down alcohol. Eggs also have an amino acid called cysteine, which replenishes the lost proteins in the body.
Ginger - Have you woken up the next day after a night of partying feeling like you want to throw up and that feeling lingers through the day? Try having something with ginger. Ginger has been used as a natural remedy to fight nausea and vomiting for centuries. Try some crystallized ginger or brew a cup of ginger tea after a night of heavy drinking. The tea must be strong for it to be effective.
Smoothies–Nothing fights a hangover like a smoothie made from fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ll get replenished with antioxidants, vitamins, fibre and amino acids, which will build protein in the body. A smoothie is a great way to get whole foods into your body. Your smoothie can contain lettuce, pear, apple, kale and any other fruit or vegetable that you like.
Alka-Seltzer - Alka-Seltzer aka baking soda is a common cure for a hangover. It contains sodium bicarbonate, which neutralizes excess stomach acid and settles the stomach. You can get rid of a queasy stomach and get relief from muscle pain too. Make sure you eat something before you have Alka-Seltzer. If you are allergic to aspirin, then Alka-Seltzer is not for you.
Get some sleep - Don’t underestimate the power of sleep when you are hung over. Your body heals itself while you’re sleeping, so make sure you get plenty of sleep the day after a night of drinking. Got to go to work and don’t have the time to snooze? Then follow the remedies mentioned above, put on a brave face and survive the day at work!
But most important of all, WATER is the best way to fighting a hangover. So, make sure you gulp down atleast a couple litres of pure drinking water!
