7 Natural Hangover Cures That Actually Work

You rang in the New Year right. You had a blast, you toasted to new friends and opportunities, and you made the most of your night . . . but you had a few too many rounds at your favorite watering hole. Now, it’s the morning of a brand new year, and you have a dreaded hangover. Hangovers suck and they happen to the best of us, but these natrual hangover cures will have you on your feet in no time.
 

Here are 7 Natural Hangover Cures That You Need to Try:

Instead of suffering, or cursing the sight or smell of alcohol, these at-home natural hangover cures will can get you on the path to feeling better and facing the day.
 

1. Hydrate

Water is so important to you every day, but especially the day after drinking. After a night of drinking, try to drink 16-20 ounces of water before bed, if you can stomach it. Alcohol dehydrates you, so the day after, be sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink plenty of water throughout the day, and try to slip in some key electrolytes from supplements such as Ultima Replenisher or coconut water.
 
 

2. Eat Bananas

Your body craves potassium the day after your imbibe a little too much. Eat a banana whole or slip it into an antioxidant- and electrolyte-rich smoothie the next day, and you will be on your way to recovery. Just wear earplugs when you turn on the blender. Buzz!
 
 

3. Detox Bath

Your body is full of all kinds of nastiness the day after you drink, especially if you drank those specialty cocktails chock-full of sugar. Relaxing in a bath is a great way to unwind, calm your mind and relax your muscles. Add a few tablespoon of Epsom salts to your hot tub of water and let the salts penetrate deep into your muscles. You can also add some calming lavender essential oils to make it a more soothing experience for your senses.
 

 

4. Ginger

Ginger is an excellent natural remedy for nausea and vomiting. Nibble on some raw, or you can brew yourself a cup of ginger tea to ease your stomach and center your mind.
 
 

5. Kombucha

This strong-tasting beverage is made of fermented black tea and sugar. It is full of healthy probiotics, is detoxifying, and supports your liver – great for the day after testing the processing power of that vital organ. Have a cup of Kombucha before bed the night that you drink, if you can remember. Then, have a cup the day after and let it work its magic!
 
 

6. Eat Clean

Your body is recovering from the night before, so you want to choose foods that are clean and not filled with additional processed chemicals that your body has to process.
 
Skip the morning-after bacon and grease-filled breakfast, and instead go for some whole wheat toast or something else that is easy-to-digest and can absorb any excess libations still lingering in your system. Give your stomach a break and avoid sugar, and get plenty of healthy fats and proteins into your meals throughout the day.
 
 

Sleep

You are tired. You have a headache, and your stomach – let’s not even talk about that! If you can get away with it, hit the snooze button and get the extra sleep that your body is craving. You can bury yourself beneath the covers and stay in bed all day, and there is no shame in that!
 
No matter what you try to do today, you will not be giving it your A-game, so take it easy, and save the stress and work for tomorrow.
 

Work Hard, Play Harder, and Recover Faster

Sharing a few drinks with your friends and loved ones is a time-honored way to socialize, kick back, and unwind. You toast to celebrate happiness. You share a drink to mourn a loss.
 
Drinking alcohol is a rite of passage when you turn 21. And in the years that follow, there will be hundreds of opportunities to share your favorite alcoholic beverage with those around you.
 
In our drinking culture, it is almost an inevitability to drink and sometimes experience the unfortunate day-after hangover. Lucky for you, you can try some or all of the natural hangover cures above and experience some relief, so you can get back to being a productive member of society.
