Reduce Your Hangover Symptoms With These 5 Science-Backed Foods
We have all been there! The throbbing headache, the queasy stomach, and the dry mouth. Even if it seemed like a good idea last night, your body probably won't thank you today! While it's true that the only real way to avoid a hangover is to not drink alcohol, some foods can slightly reduce symptoms and make the next day a little more tolerable.
When you drink alcohol, your body tries to break it down through the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase. Studies show that limes can improve your body's ability to produce this enzyme and speed up the breakdown of alcohol left in your system. Unfortunately, eating a lime alone while nauseated can be too much! Instead, mix some lime juice into coconut water to reap the moisturizing benefits and improve the breakdown of alcohol.
