With the New Year's just around the corner, we are bound to get party freaks searching the web for hangover cures. Before going out for the countdown to 2016, read the tips below so you won't waste the first day of 2016 walking around like a zombie...

1. Water


H20 is essential after a night out drinking and partying your life away. While the thought of putting more liquid into your body may sound revolting, water can actually help. Typically, the negative symptoms of alcohol derive from the dehydration of the body. Rehydrating with water before you sleep your sorrows away can potentially prevent a hangover the next day.


2. Coffee and Aspirin


According to a study, caffeine in coffee and the anti-inflammatory ingredients of aspirin and other painkillers, reacts against the chemical compounds of ethanol, or pure alcohol. Because of ethanol in your system, it brings about severe headache causing that dreadful hangover. So get some Panadol to soothe your headache and drink some coffee to boost energy. However, be cautioned that too much coffee can dehydrate you so remember your essential H20.


3. Sprite


Ironically, chugging on very sweet carbonated drinks like Sprite can ease the hangover. According to studies, it helps the body better metabolisee alcohol by speeding up our ability to process aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), believed to be the culprit for hangover symptoms.


4. Ginger or Peppermint Tea


Your basic comfort drink has definitely got to be TEA. Ginger or Peppermint Tea can be a soothing brew for nausea and stomach aches that usually trigger the need to hurl everywhere and anywhere. It’s best to get organic ones as it has more added effect.
