National Hangover Day: What's the best hangover cure?

(KXXV) -

January 1 is not only the start of a new year, but also National Hangover Day.

Several welcomed in 2017 with a little pop and fizzle, but what's the best way to fight the hangover that will follow?

Here are some tips: 

  • Drink lots of water. Alcohol causes dehydration 
  • Eat toast or crackers to bring blood sugar levels up
  • Take anti-inflammatory medication, like ibuprofen, for headaches, but do not take Tylenol as that can cause liver damage
  • Medical Daily suggests that eating asparagus protects liver cells and alleviate the hangover
  • Foods high in salt and potassium (such as pretzels or a banana) will combat dehydration
  • Rest
  • Give time to fully recover
