Prevention Tips for a Hangover-Free Holiday Season

If you plan to drink over the holiday season, there might be chance that you’ll over-imbibe, so if you do, OneMedical has posted suggestions on how to handle a hangover. It includes keeping hydrated (with water), avoiding the bubbly and eating the right mix of protein, fat and carbs for dinner and breakfast, among others.

Another hangover hack you can hang your hat on includes taking a “pre-tox” of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), a form of the amino acid cysteine. It is known to help increase glutathione and reduce the acetaldehyde toxicity that causes many hangover symptoms. Try taking NAC (at least 200 milligrams) 30 minutes before you drink to help lessen the alcohol's toxic effects.

Add some B vitamins, milk thistle, magnesium and vitamin C to it, and you will help yourself before you take one-too-many drinks.

If you’re already hungover, don’t take more alcohol to “cure” it. That doesn’t work. Also, don’t take acetaminophen, which can damage your liver. Instead, if you can manage it, a short bout of high-intensity exercise may help you sweat out some of the toxins. Replenish your body with bone broth for minerals, coconut water for electrolytes, eggs for natural cysteine and coconut for potassium.

If you're feeling nauseated, steep a piece of fresh ginger root in hot water for a natural stomach-settling tea. You can also resort to the old stand-by, black coffee, which may reduce swelling in your blood vessels, helping to relieve headache. And of course, there’s nothing better than staying hydrated with pure, clean water.
