Our Best Hangover Cure and Prevention
Firstly, there is no such thing as a “hangover cure,” we just put that wording here because it's what people search for. Nothing is guaranteed to stop a hangover, but we've found the below can make a hangover much less severe.
3-5 HOURS BEFORE DRINKING
Take two (2) borage oil softgels. The anti-inflammatory properties of this natural extract help prepare your body for what you're going to pour into it. (If you can't take them that far in advance, still take them whenever. Usually we remember about 2 hours before, but sometimes minutes). If you want to go a little further, take one curcumin capsule.
We don't think that tons of water is as important as popular wisdom says it is, just don't neglect H20 while you're drinking, otherwise you will dehydrate. You don't have to drown yourself.
Take 3-4 of these pills (currently called "Cheers," formerly "Thrive"). We find these have a noticeable effect, particularly on things like nausea and headache. They're arguably overpriced and overhyped, but they make a difference, and we prefer them to the competitors we've tried. (If you're drinking for a long haul, also take one or two while drinking).
THE NEXT DAY
Get as much sleep as you can. Your body needs time and rest to recover. If you're looking for a good rehydration/electrolytes drink, we like the RecoverORS packets.
That’s it. Please drink responsibly, and read the labels and warnings on these products.
