Suggestions to Help You Avoid Holiday Hangovers

How you can alleviate the worst of your hangover symptoms this holiday on tap

The holidays are a time of fun, celebration, and, of course, parties.  If you have plans to attend any holiday parties, then there’s a good chance that alcohol will be served.  If you are worried about the potential for post-party hangovers, then here’s what you can do to avoid the worst of your symptoms.

  • Avoid Dark Alcohols

One way to avoid holiday hangovers is by avoiding alcohols that contain a high concentration of congeners.  Congeners are toxic byproducts of the fermentation process, and alcohols that have high levels of congeners have been known to increase the frequency and severity of hangovers.  If you want to imbibe at your holiday party, then stick to vodka, white wines, and other clear alcohols as they tend to have lower levelers of congeners.

  • Take Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is believed to filter alcohol compounds, making them less harmful to the body.  Many swear that they can prevent hangover symptoms completely by ingesting an activated charcoal supplement before a night out.  Please note that activated charcoal should be treated as a preventative measure.  Trying to take an activated charcoal supplement once a hangover has already set in won’t do anything to alleviate your symptoms.

  • Stay Hydrated

Alcohol is a diuretic, and drinking too much can actually lead to dehydration.  While dehydration doesn’t necessarily cause hangovers, it can make symptoms such as headache, fatigue, and dry mouth way worse.  Fortunately, dehydration is an easy problem to fix.  Just make sure to drink water between drinks and have a large glass of water before going to bed.  This should help you alleviate some of the more intense hangover symptoms.
