We’ve all been there. A night of total joy and celebration that leads to a morning of nausea and fatigue. What do you do when you’ve overindulged in last night’s libations besides curling up in the fetal position and praying for it all to pass?

Let’s look at what got you there in the first place – you’re dehydrated, electrolytes are out of whack, your blood sugar is probably low, and you’re working on little to no sleep. Recover with this time-tested hangover remedy, honed over many years of trial and error:

Did you know… some alcoholic drinks produce worse hangovers than others.

Experts advise that if you’re going to drink and would like to avoid a hangover, it’s best to avoid congeners. Drinks with high congener content are more likely to cause a hangover. Congeners are found in larger amounts in dark liquors, such as brandy, bourbon, cognac, whiskey, tequila, dark rum, dark beer and red wine. For example, methanol is a congener found in some dark liquors that breaks down into the toxins formaldehyde and formic acid, which not surprisingly will worsen a hangover.

Clear liquors, such as vodka, gin, light rum, and lighter beers are low-congener and less likely to cause a hangover (consumed in moderation, obviously!)

  1. I’ve always found that a couple bottles of water at night and chasing 1/2 a vicodin with a Corona in the morning works wonders.
