Read on to know how you can get rid of a hangover by these natural methods!

We all love to party, celebrate, and have fun! Best parties are the ones with like-minded people, awesome food, splendid music, and great booze, all served in abundance. While we try to make the most of this wonderful time, whenever we can, some people end up consuming bottles of alcohol and have another story to tell in the morning.

Headache, nausea, and stomach ache are some of the most common side effects associated with uncontrolled alcohol consumption. Here are some ways in which natural remedies can be used to reduce the effects of a hangover.

Drink water


Consuming plenty of water between the shots of alcohol and next day morning will help to rehydrate your body and flush out impurities from your system.

Drink healthy fluids

Instead of depending only upon alcoholic drinks, you should rather consume electrolyte-rich fluids such as coconut water and lemon water to quench your thirst. Have sodium and potassium-rich soups and juices in the morning to balance electrolytes lost by your body.

Eat fatty foods


Some people believe that consuming fatty food before drinking alcohol prevents the intestines from absorbing alcohol easily. For this, one can even chug down a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil before leaving for the party.

Consume sugar

Some studies report fructose consumption while consuming alcohol, and not before, can speed up alcohol metabolism. So, eat something sweet or consume mere orange juice while drinking your favorite single malt or vodka.

Do not starve


It is important to eat regular food throughout the day and not starve yourself for the party. It is vital to eat foods rich in complex carb before consuming alcohol as easy to digest foods containing simple carbs can increase the chances of getting a hangover.


Ginger is traditionally used to cure nausea and vomiting. So, adding some ginger to your morning tea or having some ginger juice diluted with water can reduce the symptoms of a hangover.

Prickly pear


A study reports consuming prickly pear cactus extract can reduce the effect of a severe hangover by almost 50%.

Sleep well

Go back to sleep and relax well the next day to heal your body naturally and prevent yourself from experiencing the side effects of drinking too much.
