Help your body help itself

Avocado

Heavy drinking can deplete the mineral potassium, which is an essential electrolyte that maintains cellular fluid homeostasis. This can lead to muscle spasms, dizziness, and weakness, but luckily, this superfood will counteract that. It’s also chock-full of fibre, B6, carotenoids, and heart-healthy fats, and as an added bonus, enables neuromuscular function, proper heart function, muscle contraction, and keeps sodium at bay.

Ginger lemon herbal tea

There’s a reason your mom always made you drink ginger ale during a stomach virus -- ginger works wonders for nausea relief and contains anti-inflammatory compounds. But skip the super-sugary soda and opt for the fresh root and slices of lemon in hot water instead. The vitamin C and potassium boost from the lemons will soothe your nerves.

Salmon

Alcohol can deplete the body of the B-complex vitamins, causing you to feel weak and lightheaded. Rich in EPA and DHA fatty acids, salmon is an excellent source of biological protein that contains all essential amino acids and vitamin B12. Just 3oz of cooked salmon provides over half of the daily value for vitamin B12.

Beets

A nasty hangover can zap stamina, but research indicates that the nitric oxide found in beets can boost it. Nitric oxide increases blood flow and oxygen efficiency and helps maintain healthy blood pressure. Beets also contain potassium, vitamin C, fibre, and folate.

 

Eggs

Be sure to enjoy the yolk, as it contains a treasure trove of essential nutrients like calcium, vitamin D, and brain-boosting acetylcholine. And if that doesn’t get you eggcited enough, one egg will also provide you with 33% of your daily value for B12! This means that a three-egg breakfast sandwich can absolutely be justified.

 

 

These are just some examples of great sources to full recovery.
