Eat these foods to beat a hangover
Kathmandu, January 24
Studies have shown that about 76% of adults may experience some type of hangover after a drinking session. Hangover symptoms include fatigue, dehydration, a headache or muscle aches, dizziness, shakiness rapid heartbeat.
Laura Veach, director of specialized counseling intervention services and associate professor at Wake Forest School of Medicine, who was quoted by the CNN, told there are indications that the immune system and an inflammation response is involved when that hangover alarm goes out, from the central nervous system, when the blood alcohol concentration finally gets to zero.
The absence of alcohol in the body at that point is often where the hangover symptoms are at their worst.
Since alcohol can impair your body's absorption of certain nutrients, heavy drinking has been linked to a decline in levels of vitamin A, B vitamins, zinc, potassium and other key nutrients -- but eating the right foods can play a role in replacing them.
As per the CNN, vitamin A can be found in eggs, meat, fish and orange as well as in yellow-colored vegetables, such as sweet potatoes. Proteins, such as chicken or fish, contain B vitamins. Asparagus is rich in zinc and a B vitamin called folate.
Animal proteins are a good source of zinc, as well as nuts, whole grains and beans. Avocados or bananas can offer a boost of potassium.
Likewise, the US National Library of Medicine recommended that having a glass of water in between alcoholic drinks could prevent a hangover.
