If you are a regular alcohol consumer, excess consumption can have a drastic effect on your mental and physical health. However, there are certain food items that help eliminate alcohol from your body after a night of drinking.
Below mentioned are the best items to include in your diet after a night of drinking:
Lots of water. Alcohol causes dehydration which is why people experience fatigue, nausea, and loss of appetite the day after. Water helps reduce these issues as when your body is hydrated, it flushes the toxins out of your body.
Watermelon. Some people struggle with drinking water. In that case, you can eat your water which means eat food that are high in water like watermelon, cucumber and tomatoes. Watermelon are best as they have more than 90% water content. They also have a sweet taste that satisfy your sugar cravings after a night of drinking.
Tomato Juice. Speaking of tomatoes and their high water content, they also contain compounds that protect our liver. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to liver damage, so tomatoes may counter the effects of drinking alcohol. Also, tomato juice can accelerate the rate at which enzymes process alcohol.
Coconut Water. Amazing to improve hydration after a night of drinking since it’s an important part of the recovery process as discussed above. Coconut water has a lot of electrolytes like potassium and sodium!
Eggs. Eggs are rich in cysteine, an amino acid needed for the production of Glutathione, an antioxidant that helps your body break down the toxic byproducts of alcohol metabolism. So having eggs for breakfast is amazing for increasing the production of glutathione in your body that were depleted during drinking.
Veggies high in Vitamin C. Cut clean Dubai fresh fruits and vegetables the next time you over consume alcohol. Include oranges, kiwi, strawberries and berries. Vitamin C prevent your body from losing glutathione which, as previously mentioned, needed by your body to get rid of alcohol.
Salmon. Consider salmon for lunch. It is high in omega-3 which is useful to fight inflammation that may have been caused by alcohol. If you’re not a fan of salmon, you can have walnuts as a snack instead. They’re also amazing sources of omega-3.Written by Lauren Jacobsen, Nutrition Director
