One of the last things that anyone wants to experience is a hangover. For many, alcohol consumption has become a part of their daily lives. And, as they get older so does the experience of waking up to nausea, tiredness, and a pounding headache. What many people don’t know is the variety of ways in which a hangover can be cured.
A Dirty Lemon Drink
This drink looks just as dirty as the name suggests, but, it works wonders for curing a hangover. Preparing the drink is no big deal; simply combine lemon juice, water, dandelion extract, ginger and the main ingredient activated charcoal mixed together and the drink is ready. Activated charcoal is made from coconut, coal or wood and is mainly used in detox drinks. The alkaline nature of activated charcoal enables it to absorb the poison (alcohol) and preventing it from getting into the stomach. Lemon activates and boosts the liver function which enables it to filter out the alcohol from the body. Ginger helps in neutralizing and soothing an upset stomach. Dandelion is an excellent source of antioxidants; it stimulates the liver and helps in curing the effects of excess alcohol.
