Your Best Hangover Cures Revealed Ahead Of Bank Holiday Weekend

Everyone's got a different way of dealing with a hangover, whether it's going for an early morning run to sweat out all of those toxins or mopping up the booze with a gigantic dose of grease and stodge.

And with pubs finally back in business just in time for what looks to be a surprisingly sunny bank holiday, no doubt many of you may be in need of a little inspiration when it comes to nursing those sore heads.

We took to Instagram a while back to ask LADbible readers what their tried-and-tested cures are - here's a selection to get you going...

"Since moving to Dublin my friends introduced me to a munch box. It's a pizza box filled with Chinese starters (ribs, wings, calamari, spring rolls, chips), sweet chilli and curry sauce. Never had a hangover so satisfied and at the same time been so disgusted with myself."

Rhys Salisbury

"So I often drink two pints of something called muddy water - it's just half coke, half orange juice! But it seems to do the trick pretty well. Another great cure is cactus juice."

"I suffered monstrous hangovers once but now... I have 1-3 pints of water before I go to bed, while I'm drunk. The next morning, I have a full Scottish breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding etc. The hangover is no more."

And also...

The 'drink a load of water before bed' method is apparently quite popular with you guys, so next time you head out and find yourself a little worse for wear, maybe try and give that one a go.

There's also the idea that lining your stomach before drinking may help with the severity of your hangover the next day.

Dr Kathryn Basford, also an online doctor at Zava, recently told LADbible: "Food slows down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream, and also speeds up how quickly your body starts to break down alcohol and remove it.

"This means that blood alcohol levels will be higher and will increase faster if you drink on an empty stomach.

"So you're more likely to feel drunk faster if you don't eat before, and also more likely to experience the negative effects of alcohol - feeling flushed, nauseous, headaches, etc."

As for what's the best type of food to eat before a big night out, Basford believes something vitamin-rich might help you in the long run - but that it's better to eat anything than nothing.

She said: "The type of food that's eaten, for example fats, carbohydrates or proteins, doesn't appear to affect the breakdown of alcohol.

"So as long as you eat a meal before drinking, it will help with the effects of the alcohol, and a subsequent hangover.

"However, foods with plenty of vitamins and water content may help - so fruits and vegetables rather than fatty foods - may be better.

"So if you're eyeing up a burger, perhaps have a salad on the side."
