Water, considered a natural hangover remedy in two views.
What's the #1 reason for a hangover? Okay, yes, drinking too much alcohol. But the scientific reason for what happens to your body is the fact that you are dehydrated. Severely.
Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning that it stimulates your body to increase urine production. That in turn deplets your body of fluid, more specifically, the water in your body. (That's why you have to pee so much when you have a few drinks.) This depletion can cause dehydration if you have consumed a lot of alcohol. Symptoms of dehydration may include dry mouth, thirst, dizziness and headache. Exactly the symptoms you experience with a hangover.
So drinking water is what most doctors and scientists agree as the best way to get that much needed water back into your body. And maybe with enough time, cure that hangover.
Medical experts agree that there is no strictly "safe" level of alcohol consumption. Find out more facts about alcohol use and heath here.
