If you’re planning on going out and downing a few too many adult beverages to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, here are few things you can do to prevent a massive hangover . . .
1: Drink Gatorade or coconut water.
It’s smart to have a glass of water between drinks so you don’t get dehydrated but coconut water or Gatorade is even better.
2: Take vitamins.
Hangovers aren’t JUST about dehydration. Inflammation and the production of free radicals in your body also make you feel like crap. Antioxidants help with that, so pop a multivitamin before you leave the house (pomegranate juice will work too)
3: Order a burger instead of a salad.
You want to eat a meal that contains carbs, protein, and fat BEFORE you go out drinking, and red meat has an especially high concentration of amino acids and B vitamins that help process the negative byproducts of alcohol.
4: Stick with clear liquor.
Vodka and gin have fewer toxins and impurities than dark spirits like whisky and rum.
