Part 1 -The morning after steps to recovery

Morning isn't shinning as bright as you'd hope

Here are some guidelines to curing that nasty hangover...

Step 1: Water

Hydrate! Water can lessen the severity of headaches, fatigue, nausea, and confusion. 

Step 2: Sprite

Have some Sprite! Believe it or not, in a recent study, researchers found that sprite helps the body metabolize alcohol by speeding our ability to process ALDH (aldehyde dehydrogenase)  

Step 3: Ginger or Peppermint Tea

Nauseous? Get your tea on. Tea helps settle your stomach.

Step 4: Asparagus

Get those greens! Amino acids in asparagus improve the speed of how your cells break down alcohol while protecting liver cells. 

Step 5: Bananas and Pretzels

Have a snack? These options contain salt and potassium that are full of electrolytes and carbohydrates which depleted during your night out drinking.

Are you ready to cure your hangover?
