The Monkey

We have evolved in so many ways both scientifically and technologically but the one cure everyone failed to find is the solution to Hangover. It’s hard to control on drinks while at a party be it a club scene or a house party. Most of us are in the same boat sailing through the experience of a similar feeling from the after party. The hangover!

We have all been there and done that! Enjoying the light-hearted laughs over some intoxicating fluids, but the following morning is rarely the best morning to get up to. Be it after a holiday or celebrating a party, we seldom get up fresh and energetic. And most of the times, we end up exceeding the limits of how much we can drink. Our body is the best and most effective machine we have ever come across. It’s our body’s own way of reminding us of the toxins we have consumed by cautioning us the importance of flushing them out and getting us back to our effective best. And this is often done through the signs of a hangover.

What’s a Hangover? Excess consumption of alcohol the previous night, can most times lead to a hangover in the morning. It generally involves headache, tiredness, dehydration, and nausea. A hangover can lead to difficulty in concentrating or thinking clearly and sometimes leads to anxiety as well. It is definitely not a great feeling after having one amazing time the previous night. The primary cause of the feeling is the ethanol in the alcohol which has after effects on our body including dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, low blood sugar, stomach and intestine inflammation, and sleep disturbances. There is no perfect cure for hangovers, and the best way to prevent a hangover is not to drink at all or drink in moderation.

However, there are ways to limit or prevent the feeling of a hangover in the mornings. Consuming ‘hangover smoothies’ help combat the effect of the bad symptoms you face the following day. These smoothies are very rich in electrolyte salts which help in re-hydrating the body and replenishing the salts and minerals lost during the consumption of alcohol. The lactic acid levels in the body increase when the body breaks down alcohol, which causes a drop in the blood sugar levels. Consuming smoothies of fruits like apple, banana, pineapple, grapes, etc. restore blood sugar levels and help the body battle the hangover symptoms. These smoothies are rich in fruits with antioxidants which helps in driving away the oxidative stress developed during alcohol intake. They also inject the body with the necessary nutrients including proteins, carbohydrates, and vitamins which aid on the repair and recovery process. Coffee can also act as a stimulant which can improve the feeling of fatigue which is accompanied by the hangover.

Other than that, it is also important to drink responsibly and take remedies while consuming alcohol. Drinking a lot of water and keeping yourself hydrated is very important. Eating healthy food before and while consuming alcohol reduces the effect of the alcohol on the body as it slows down the rate the body absorbs alcohol. And lastly, anything done in moderation will seldom cause any serious damage to your body. And if not anything, have smoothies and stay naturally high!!

But, if you failed to do any of these, then you know what to do. Just grab one of the hangover smoothies and it will definitely help you battle through the hangover. It will definitely help you get off the sheets and roll out of bed keeping you sail through the day so you can be back in action.
