Must have a glass of tap water after every 2nd drink
Must stick to one kind of drink, don’t want to mix my spirits
Plan my bathroom breaks to miss the moment when someone shouts “SHOTS"
Must book Monday off work to recover. Yes I know it’s Friday today.
This may sound like pub ADHD, but I really, really, really, really don’t like hangovers (anymore).
I did some research into this ancient problem as I had a hunch that Matcha Tea might be a secret cure and wanted to find out more. Here’s what I found:
According to modern science there is still no absolute cure for hangovers. Other than drinking water and waiting, there’s not much else to do.
However, the exact reason for hangovers is still being debated. Hangovers can happen for a lot of reasons. It has been suggested that hangovers are basically early stages of alcohol withdrawal. Some say hangovers are the result of a chemical reaction that takes place in the brain after a lot of alcohol gets into your system.
I’ve never met anyone with a ‘loud music’ hangover, so I’m going to presume that large amounts of alcohol are the common link to almost all hangovers. So what can we do to ‘bounce back’?
Well after a number of recent weekend drinking escapades, I have been drinking Matcha Tea the next morning to see if I can find any empirical (real world) evidence of improvements to my headache, dizziness, tiredness or grumpiness.
Matcha contains tons of antioxidants (more than any other tea in the world), and those flush out the toxins from the liver put there by the alcohol. The antioxidants prevent the chemical reaction from happening in the brain.
Remember what they say about prevention being better than cure? You can help to prevent the hangover from happening in the first place by drinking a cup of Matcha before the party.
Nothing beats a hangover like hydration. Mix 1 teaspoon of Matcha with some coconut water and a pinch of salt. This will give you relief from headaches, thanks to Matcha’s caffeine. You will be re-hydrated by the coconut water and salt.
The organ that’s worst affected from alcoholic overdose is the brain. Being a natural nootropic, Matcha Tea can also prevent amyloid plaque buildup in the brain, thereby helping to prevent Alzheimer’s.
By drinking some Matcha Tea before or after (preferably both) the day of the party, you will feel much better, completely free from any hangover. Just remember to not drink it right after you finish your alcohol.
