Vitamins For A Hangover Cure

No one likes the morning after the night before. Lying in bed, or even worse on the bathroom floor, after a heavy night, desperately searching for a hangover cure.

One of the last thing that you might think to try for a hangover cure is your daily vitamins. But actually, a dose of your daily vitamins is just what the doctor ordered. Vitamins can help to replenish all of the essential nutrients and electrolytes that your body has lost under the influence of alcohol. So here are the 4 vitamins for hangovers that you need the morning after…

Here are the top vitamins that can help with that hangover cure:

Vitamin B Plus

The 8 energising vitamins in our Vitamin B Plus (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12) can help to reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue, by boosting energy metabolism. It includes Riboflavin (B2) and Niacin (B3) to help reduce tiredness and fatigue, and Biotin (B7) which has been shown to support energy levels and cognitive health, giving you the energy boost you need after a big night out.

Chewable Vitamin C

Drinking alcohol depletes Vitamin C levels within the body. Taking two Chewable Vitamin C tablets the morning after drinking will help detoxify the liver, and protect the body against oxidative stress caused by alcohol toxins.

Zinc & Magnesium

Our Zinc & Magnesium tablets contain the perfect duo of minerals to help you feel revitalised.  Since alcohol is a diuretic, Magnesium will help you rehydrate, getting rid of that banging headache and dry mouth, making you feel a little more rejuvenated. Scientists have also suggested that magnesium can help to break down the alcohol left in your body, helping you to kick that hangover feeling faster.

Zinc is required by the enzymes that help to break down alcohol in your body, so supplementing it in can help your body to fight that hangover. Plus, zinc boosts your immune system and helps to decrease inflammation in the body.

What to Avoid When You Have a Hangover

Coffee

After drinking, the body becomes dehydrated. Caffeine can also cause dehydration, so although you might feel the need to reach for a cup of coffee or a caffeine boost, it’s best to avoid it. While it might have a short term effect on your energy levels, it will probably leave you feeling worse later on. Here are some more natural ways to boost your energy:

Greasy Food

While many people swear by a full english fry up as their hangover cure, greasy foods high in saturated fat could be making you feel even worse the morning after. These fatty foods can irritate your stomach, making you feel more sick, particularly if you already woke up with an upset stomach.

Instead, we would recommend opting for foods that are high in nutrients to help you recover. According to Healthline (1), alcohol prevents your body absorbing amino acids, and can even cause amino acid deficiencies. Adding our protein powder (which your body will break down into amino acids) into a fruity smoothie can be a great way to help you feel fresher after a night of drinking.
