If you’ve had too many the night before, fear not! While we don’t advise heavy drinking, it happens to the best of us.
These are the best foods for curing a hangover – some of which may surprise you!
- Love it or hate it, Marmite or Vegemite on toast is packed full of salt and B vitamins – these are the two things that need replenishing, as the body uses these very quickly when processes alcohol.
- Lemons and limes are great at giving a hangover the heave-ho, and we all know drinking lots of water can help alleviate a pounding headache. Try adding two teaspoons of fresh lemon or lime juice and a teaspoon of honey to a pint of water when you wake up and see if it makes a difference.
- Beans on toast, yes, please! Beans are a great source of fiber and folic acid, as well as protein to aid the body’s recovery.
- Don’t get in a pickle! Gherkins are rich in nutrients including vitamin A, iron, potassium, vitamin K, calcium and manganese, so, eating a few gherkins may actually help you get over the worst of it.
