Important Things to Include in Your Hangover Survival Kit

Alcohol consumption causes dehydration, and excess consumption can lead to a hangover. Hence, drinking plenty of bottled mineral water is one of the most important remedies to recover from a hangover.

Did You Know?

In the United States, the common hangover culprits are red wine, vodka, and tequila.
The morning after a night of heavy drinking dawns with a throbbing headache, nausea, fatigue, and a miserable feeling. It's that horrible feeling that leaves you in physical and emotional distress. You curse yourself for overindulging in alcohol and are desperately looking for measures to overcome the hangover.
Well, hangovers subside on their own and everyone has their own method or remedy to cure one. Yet, if one could have a survival kit that contains stuff that would alleviate the specific symptoms effectively, then the subsequent morning would become a lot easier.
We have provided a least of certain easily available items that have worked in dealing with the after effects. Take this survival kit to your friend's bachelor's party, and I am sure you will be thanking me the next morning. Its importance can be realized only after a night of revelry and merriment.
Essentials of a Hangover Survival Kit
Ibuprofen
You are likely to experience muscle pain and a throbbing headache after a night of booze. An easy way to alleviate these symptoms would be to have non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen (Advil) or aspirin (Bayer). If you have an important task in the morning, or have to get back to work.
Bottled Water
This is one of the most important items to include in your kit. As mentioned earlier, heavy alcohol consumption can leave you severely dehydrated, which means, it is imperative that you replenish your body. Excess alcohol makes you pee frequently, which unfortunately flushes off essential minerals.
Coconut water is an excellent source of potassium, a nutrient to ease hangover symptoms. The potassium content in a carton of coconut water is higher than a banana. Coconut water re hydrates the body faster than normal water or the standard sports drinks.
Canned Tomato Juice
Drinking tomato juice too can also help relieve nausea and headaches. As aforementioned, too much of alcohol intake causes you to urinate a lot, resulting in depletion of nutrient stores. An easy way to overcome nutrition loss would be to have healthy beverages like tomato juice
Breath Freshener
Drinking alcohol leaves you with bad breath. In order to get rid of alcohol breath in the morning, keep a mint-flavored or fruit-flavored chewing gum at hand. Mints that contain sugar are no good. So, for freshening breath, opt for mints that contain xylitol.
Snacks
Snacks like pretzels and saltine crackers not only ease the nauseating feeling associated with a hangover but are also easy to digest. Moreover, the sodium that is lost from excessive urination can be compensated by eating these salty snacks. Adding 2 to 3 bananas to your kit is also recommended.
Honey Bottle
A spoonful of honey contains naturally occurring fructose that helps minimize the ill-effects of excess alcohol consumption. It expedites the process of alcohol metabolism. The breakdown of alcohol in the liver, results in the production of acetaldehyde―a toxic product.
T-Shirt
Heading home the next morning with the shirt that you wore for the party can be nauseating. This is because those debauched festivities at night are likely to leave your shirt awfully smelly. So, make sure that your kit contains a brand new T-shirt that can be swapped for your smelly clothes, when the need arises.
Facial Cleansing Wipes
One of the best ways to freshen up after a late night booze is to use towelettes or facial wipes. They provide an easy way to wipe your face and feel fresh. So, if you want to transform your dull, partied out look in the morning into something rejuvenating.
