Bachelorette: Top 10 Hangover Cures

Having spent a long weekend in Las Vegas this past weekend, I saw at least a hundred bachelorette parties going on. Most of these parties are harmless and usually involve the bride wearing some variation of a veil and/or tiara (with or without plastic or confetti male anatomy adorning said veil) while out in clubs dancing with her friends. These parties will most likely also involve drinking. And a good night of drinking on the dance floor with your girlfriends usually leads to a not-so-fun hangover in the morning. So I had to share when I saw this feature on One Wed all about Top 10 Hangover Cures For After The Bachelorette Party. So any bride or bridesmaids who will be participating in one of these rites of passage - read up and take note!

10) Cucumbers – No doubt the eyes need some major TLC to de-puff…
9) Ice pack – Applying a cold compress works wonders on a throbbing head.
8) Tomato Juice – If you can’t stomach the “hair of the dog” with a Bloody Mary, then tomato juice contains sugar to help break down the alcohol in your stomach.
7) Coffee with Lemon - Lemon juice alleviates nausea and the caffeine helps shrink blood vessels that cause that pounding headache…
6) Crackers with honey – This naturally flushes the system to rid your body of alcohol fast!
5) Peppermints – Kills two birds with one stone by freshening breath and helps stop a churning stomach …
4) Gatorade – Dehydration is a major cause of a hangover; give your system a hydrating boost and replenish electrolytes with your fav flavor…
3) Bananas or better yet, banana milkshake - Bananas helps calm the stomach and the milk soothes the stomach and re-hydrates your system.
2) Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich – The greasier, the better to soak up all those celebratory tequila shots and eggs help re-hydrate…
1) Advil – make it Extra Strength – no explanation needed…

And my own personal recommendations ... WATER, lots and lots of it both before and after imbibing. Also some (but not too much of) caffeine since it can help to reduce the size of the blood vessels contributing to your pounding headache. For breakfast enjoy some eggs which contain large amounts of cysteine, the substance that breaks down the hangover-causing toxin acetaldehyde in the liver's easily depleted glutathione, and have a banana which replenishes the potassium lost to alcohol's diuretic effect.
