Ask VIRTVE: How Do You Cure a Hangover?

By  | 

Welcome to the first post of the series, where we cover all life’s curious questions. Ask VIRTVE lets you guys ask us whatever we want, and we’ll give the answer to you straight. Feel free to ask some questions in the comments section for the next go-around.

Q: How do you cure a hangover?

@SassFitz: I always try to eat something before I drink. Vodka waters with lemon and lime keep the sugar content down. This helps my headaches in the AM. Also an ibuprofen and couple glasses of water before bed with a snack 🙂

@FitWithMeShelbySkoop A, a liter of water and a ginger beer! The Skoop reboots your energy cycle with the equivalent micronutrients of ten servings of fruits and vegetables, water cures the dehydration, and an organic ginger beer made with real ginger makes the stomach feel amazing!

@KaitlynSchlicht: If you have to go to work, I’d recommend taking a couple Ibuprofen in the morning, drinking as much coffee as you can (if it doesn’t make you spew), holding tight until lunch, and then ordering a couple of beers to take the edge off  — Old Chicago is always a go-to. I’m not much of a drinker on weeknights, my hangovers hit on Saturday/Sunday. In which case I opt for brunch, a Bloody Mary (or two), followed by a nap with comfy clothes, and Netflix binging until bedtime.

What do you guys think? Have any advice to make the pain go away?
