Suffering from a God-forsaken hangover from St. Patty’s Day?
“Let’s drink some green beer they said. It’ll be fun…they said.”
Or did you try to out drink an Irishman? Pfft tough competition and now you’re feeling it, eh? Don’t fret; people from the islands have all kinds of natural cures and remedies but I promise this one isn’t bush tea.
Keep it simple, simple! Good ol’ coconut water does the trick! Even if you aren’t in a tropical abyss it is easy to find and when it’s cold it tastes even better. Companies like O.N.E, Vita Coco and Goya, to name a few, make it easy to fulfill your craving. It will settle your stomach and is full of electrolytes that exit your body through frequent use of the bathroom and when you were praying head-first to the porcelain gods last night. The electrolytes also aid in reducing high blood pressure, which can happen after excessive drinking.
Coconut water also boosts hydration more effectively than sports drinks. Ingredients like potassium, magnesium, B vitamins, enzymes and a million more are what make this fruit a super food. Try replacing Gatorade, Powerade and even Red Bull with coconut water. Your body will thank you in the long run.
Next year, just say no to the Irish car bombs! In the meantime, kiss your hangover goodbye and say hello electrolytes!
