8 Foods and Drinks That Will Revive Your Body After a Heavy Night Out

Fast forward 12 hours – you’re in agony. You’re head is pounding and throbbing. You’re stomach is churning, and the urge to throw up seems to get stronger by the second. Last night was crazy, and you swear you’ll control your drinking next time. Yes, it’s one of those mornings. Everyone who has suffered a hangover knows how horrendous it can be. When getting out of bed seems like an impossible task, eating the right food (no, not burgers and pizzas) is vital in helping your body fight the hangover as fast as possible.

Below we have compiled a list of 8 foods and drinks that will help revive your body after a heavy night out.

Water

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

This comes as no surprise as water is typically what people crave after a heavy night of drinking. Because alcohol is a diuretic, it causes our body to push water out of our system. When water starts to run low, it draws water from the rest of our body, such as from our brain. This is what causes negative hangover symptoms such as nausea and headache. Rehydrating yourself is an essential part of fighting hangovers. This elixir of life should definitely be the first thing you reach for, not your phone.

Bananas

The high levels of potassium in bananas make it a great fruit to eat when suffering from a hangover. Potassium is an important electrolyte that aids our body in retaining water, therefore decreasing dehydration. Additionally, if you are prone to throwing up during or after an alcohol-filled night, then bananas are definitely your go-to fruit. It’s extremely gentle on your tummy and serves as a quick way to get potassium into your body.

Tomato Juice

Some people swear this helps, others don’t, but when it comes down to science, tomato juice is absolutely helpful. Tomato juice sends a bolt of vitamins into our heavily depleted bodies as well as hydrates our cells. The fructose found in the juice also flushes out any leftover or lingering alcohol in our system. Tomato juice’s unique balance of nutrients, minerals and vitamins earns it the title “super food” or “super drink”.

Asparagus

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

Never have I heard a friend say “Damn, last night was rough, let’s grab some stir-fried asparagus”. It’s more commonly “Let’s grab pizza or KFC.” Although not the typical food to crave during hangovers, asparagus deserves to be on this list. The properties found in asparagus protect our body from alcohol. A 2009 study from the Journal of Food and Science suggests that the amino acids in asparagus can prevent us from the long term effects of alcohol by improving the speed in which human cells break down alcohol. It also mitigates the effects of hangovers and protects the cells in our liver.

Eggs

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

Being full of protein, vitamin B and amino acids such as cysteine and taurine, eggs are an ideal food for your first meal. Cysteine breaks down acetaldehyde, the toxic chemical created when alcohol is broken down in the liver. This is the chemical that causes those pounding headaches we all hate. Taurine prevents liver disease and the effects of alcohol while also boosting liver function. As for protein, it stabilizes blood sugar and feeds our muscles. Eggs are an all-star hangover food.

Miso Soup

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

Much like asparagus, miso soup is generally not your typical food to crave when you’re hung-over. The idea of something sour and fermented might throw you off but miso is actually a great morning-after remedy. As published in the Journal of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology, fermented miso flushes out leftover toxins in our stomach by aiding with digestion. Miso soup also rehydrates our body by restocking sodium levels.

Coconut Water

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

We all know water is one of the best liquids to drink when waking up with a hangover. However, some people have a hard time drinking water because of its bland taste. It might even make some people feel more nauseous. If you’re one of those people, turn to coconut water. It is insanely hydrating and contains almost as much potassium as bananas. As mentioned above, potassium is a key component in feeling better.

Oats

8 foods and drinks to keep your body healthy after a night out

Considered a natural super food, oats are packed with essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and vitamin B. After a heavy night of drinking and dancing, our bodies are depleted of these minerals, and restoring them is of paramount importance in tackling hangovers. Oats are also known to neutralize acids, and raise blood levels with such haste that it gives you an instant boost of energy.
