How to Cure Bad Hangovers and Feel Better Fast

So you had a few too many drinks last night and woke up feeling the dreadful effects of a hangover? We get it, no one wants to start their day off with a pounding headache, body aches, and severe dehydration. Lucky for you, IV Birds Hangover Drip Therapy is made specifically for these instances.  

What Causes a Hangover In the First Place?

There are several reasons as to how and why alcohol causes a hangover. It’s your body’s response to dehydration, vitamin, and nutrient depletion caused by excessive alcohol consumption. The end result is an array of symptoms like nausea, headache, dehydration and muscle aches that can be debilitating. Obviously no one wants to experience the side effects that come with a fun night out with friends. Let’s break down exactly what these things mean so that you know how to best prevent and treat a hangover. 

How To Prevent a Hangover 

Before you get the night rolling, follow these simple tips to prevent a hangover in the first place: 

  1. Limit Your Alcohol Intake: This one may seem obvious, but it truly is the most beneficial way to curb a bad hangover. We’re not saying you can’t drink at all, but in order to stay below the danger level for hangover symptoms try and limit your alcohol intake to one drink per hour.
  2.  Avoid Alcohol with Congeners:  Congeners are a family of compounds that are added to alcoholic beverages, usually as part of the aging process. Vodka, gin, and rum contain the least amount of congeners which makes it less likely to experience a hangover.  On the other hand, tequila, whiskey and bourbon whiskey contain the highest amount of congeners. 
  3. Keep Hydrated: Drink lots of water before and/or during consuming alcohol. Doing so reduces the risk of dehydration after drinking.
  4. Don’t Drink on an Empty Stomach: While you’re enjoying happy hour, don’t forget to order some good food. Drinking on an empty stomach causes much of the alcohol to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream, increasing your odds of having a hangover.
