New Year’s Eve is here! A lot of people will be going out to parties, eating and drinking in excess, then regretting it New Year’s Day. So, what can you do to avoid a hangover? Of course the very best way to avoid any type of hangover is to abstain or minimize the alcohol consumption. Try some tasty sparkling lingonberry juice as an alternative!
OK, so I realize that many people are going to refuse my good advice to abstain, so here are some tips to help reduce hangover symptoms. The key is planning ahead.
If you know you are going out in the evening, eat lighter, healthier meals during the day.
Drink lots of water. Many of the symptoms of hangover are due to dehydration. Drink water before, during and after your celebrations. In addition take an herbal base B complex vitamin. Since alcohol causes you to lose more fluids, B vitamins are also lost and should be replenished.
Have a detox formula on hand. The very best thing you can take is a formula that contains N-acetyl-cysteine, which helps to protect and detoxify your liver, and can help reduce the symptoms of a hangover. A formula like Paragon Plus Cleanse Detox is good because it contains this form of cysteine, plus some potent liver support herbs. Take it as directed before you go out, when you come home, and again in the morning.
Most importantly, be safe and have a Happy New Year.
