What You Drink Affects Your Hangover

What You Drink Affects Your Hangover

What you consume when you are drinking can affect your hangover. Some would say this is a myth, but science has shown that some drinks make you more susceptible to a hangover. Let’s look into what factors cause this and healthy alcoholic drinks you can choose.

Sugars
Beverages containing both alcohol and sugar are the leading cause of a bad hangover. Sugary beverages like sodas, sweet & sour mix, energy drinks, and sweetened liquors are the kind of drinks that amplify hangovers. The organ in the body responsible for metabolizing sugars is the liver, which is also the same organ that processes alcohol. This major workload can cause much stress on the liver, not to mention alcohol alone can negatively impact blood sugar levels.

Stimulants & Diuretics
Also, most find themselves mixing a stimulant (caffeine/sugar) and a depressant (alcohol) together which will cause the body extra stress. Caffeine, carbonation, and alcohol are all diuretics. This means they drain the body of much needed fluids. As your body loses more and more fluid, you become more and more dehydrated.

Congeners
The ingredients in the alcohol you drink can affect your hangover. Drinks with higher levels of congeners or hops can worsen a hangover. Hops give beer its bitter, crisp taste, but can be hard on the body.

Congeners are a by-product of the process of alcohol fermentation and can exaggerate the symptoms of a hangover. Dark spirits like brandy, whiskey, and red wine contain more congeners than lighter spirits like vodka and white wine.

Quality
The quality of the alcohol makes a difference as well. Cheaper liquors have more impurities and congeners due to lower quality ingredients used and poorer distillation methods. This has caused a recent trend in drinking premium vodka & water. It may not be the best tasting libation, but it is one of the healthier cocktails available.

Examples of healthy alcoholic drinks

Some healthy alcoholic drinks can be found at our healthy drinks post. One of the most popular solutions is mixing vodka with soda. Or even cutting cranberry or orange juice with soda to lower the sugar content. For example, order a premium vodka (Titos) with club soda and a splash of cranberry. The splash of cranberry and squeeze of lime will add some flavor without adding much sugar.

Taking Preventative Measures

Easy one, consume some water while drinking. Pair that with your healthy alcoholic drinks. But dehydration is not the only factor in your hangover. You need to get your body the nutrients it needs to help prevent your next hangover. You can do that by consuming this… Bananas are an excellent source of B-vitamins and potassium. Eggs are a great source of cysteine, as previously mentioned. Many fruits, vegetables, and herbs are great sources of antioxidants. Supplementing is often an easier way to get concentrated amounts of antioxidants.
