The Best Hacks to Nurse a Nasty Hangover


A man sits with a headache from his hangover after a night of drinking.

As much fun as a night of drinking with your friends or kicking back with a few drinks to unwind after work sounds, the hangover that tends to follow is the worst. It's no surprise that so many of us end up hungover and sick after a night of drinking—after all, our bodies process and react to the alcohol in our systems beyond just giving you the courage to call your ex.

So how do you kick these hangovers to the curb, especially when you don’t have the energy to get up and make Stinson’s Hangover Fixer Elixir from the intense headache and nausea? With these simple tips, tricks, and hacks:

Hydration is everything

Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it dehydrates you, and that dehydration is what causes a lot of the physical symptoms you feel, including tiredness. Beat that with some water and ADULTalyte for added hydration. You can sip on our hydration electrolyte powder packets while you’re drinking, spacing out your drinks with them to keep you from over-indulging and from getting parched. You can also have this before and after drinking, to speed up the hydration process along with the help of plain old water.

Get in those electrolytes

You lose a lot of electrolytes and end up with an imbalance after excessive—and even moderate—drinking, which is why you need to replenish ASAP. You can use our supplement as an electrolyte replacement drink, too, loading up the morning after to regain your balance. The best part? It tastes great, so you can enjoy it with your breakfast too.

Have your morning coffee

Speaking of breakfast, a lot of us can't start our day without our morning coffee. But you'd be surprised at how thin the line between help and damage is. Too much coffee can make your hangover worse than before, but the right amount can help awaken you, which is ideally something you want to avoid. Have one cup and focus on hydration and food consumption instead!

Enjoy some fresh fruit or juice

Fruits and fruit juices are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals (hello potassium!), and vital natural sugars that will help fix you up. These fruits will help raise your blood sugar, among other benefits, without breaking down and damaging your system the way refined and processed sugars do. Plus, fruits and juices also hydrate and nourish you!

P.S. it’s also the perfect time to treat yourself to your favorite carbs. Bread, crackers, you name it!

Catch up on sleep if you can

Sleep can fix everything from a broken heart to a raging hangover, and if you've got the day off or some extra time to yourself, sleep it off. Rest, recuperate, and relax after you've eaten, hydrated, and stretched to give your body time to process and metabolize everything.

Be sure to hydrate and fill up before a night of drinking to avoid these problems. You can always carry some ADULTalyte with you, thanks to our easy packaging. Mix it in your drink, have it on its own, or as a substitute. Order yours here or contact us for more details.
