So we’ve talked about what makes for wicked hangover in another post, let’s take a peak at what might smooth the rough transition back to sobriety.
There are more than a few items to choose from when trying to revive the almost dead. Let’s reference the amino acid cysteine. It’s been getting more press in the last few years and with good reason. Cysteine puts on its gloves and starts pummeling acetaldehyde- the toxin that our bodies convert alcohol into. So the following recipe is a dedication to the Mardi Gras crowd, both young and young at heart.
Specific for a hangover:
1. Take 2 aspirins
2. Take 200mg cysteine (available at specialty food stores)
3. Take 600mg vitamin C
4. Take 1 tablet vitamin B-complex
5. Mix the following ingredients together in a blender:
1 small can V-8
6 large strawberries
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup orange juice
1-2 cups milk (or soy milk), to desired consistency
¼ tsp. salt
dash of nutmeg
Oh a blended drink recipe for your hangover you say, that’s what you want, well here you go…
1/2 cup apple juice
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 inch piece of ginger root, peeled
1/2 tsp dried Chamomile Flowers
1/2 tsp Slippery Elm Powder
In a blender, combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth.
And if you are wondering what the heck slippery elm is: Slippery elm is used to relieve gastrointestinal conditions, sore throats, ulcers, and respiratory irritations today. External uses include treatment of skin conditions, vaginitis, and hemorrhoids. It can be used as a cough medicine or as a skin smoother and softener.
