Hangover Tip of the Day: 2/25/14
“Alcohol molecules love H2O, so whatever alcohol you take in will grab water,” says James M. Schaefer, Ph.D., an alcohol metabolism expert and research professor of anthropology at Union College. The result: Your whole body—brain included—is sucked dry. So hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. While sports drinks do contain the electrolytes you need after partaking in one (or two, or three…) too many adult beverages, they also often contain ingredients like artificial food dyes that don’t do your brain cells any favors. A low-sugar coconut water, on the other hand, contains just as many electrolytes as Gatorade.
