Tips for Preventing a Hangover

Last week we talked about all things wine.¬†ūüć∑

I don't know about you, but I learned so much from Christina!

Sooooo- This week I'm going to share with you about my fave hack to cure / reduce and even prevent hangover symptoms! 

My girlfriends said I needed to share this on the blog, so here it goes! 

*Disclaimer, this is my personal routine and opinion, it's probably not super scientific. 

Nonetheless, it works for me and I'm sure it can work for you!

To make things simple- alcohol is hard on your liver. And your stomach.

With these supplements/water, you'll have all the support you need to detox that alcohol and feel like yourself the next day!

Before drinking:

  • Take 1 NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine)
    • Supports the liver and increases the body‚Äôs production of the glutathione, a powerful antioxidant.
    • It breaks down acetaldehyde, the toxin that causes those awful hangovers!
    • Take 30 mins before drinking.

Right before bed:

  • Water¬†
    • Chug chug chug. Drink a full glass before you fall asleep and put¬†a glass¬†(or two) by the bed so if you wake up, you have it there!
    • Hydration is key to overcoming the negative effects of alcohol.
  • Milk thistle¬†
    • A powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps to cleanse and detox the body by supporting liver function. The golden ticket.
    • I take it even if I've only had half a glass of wine.
  • Charcoal¬†
    • All the rage for a reason. It absorbs toxins in your system and¬†removes them through digestive tract.
    • Reduces bloating & decreases inflammation.
    • Make sure you take it alone because it will absorb anything you take with it! I typically take milk thistle while I'm getting ready for bed and charcoal and hour later right before I fall asleep.¬†
 Next day:
  • Sleep in - 8 hours or more!
  • Milk thistle with breakfast
  • Coffee + lots of water all day long

I hope these tips help you to enjoy a glass or two of wine guilt free!!
