“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure”


o Water with lemon or chlorophyll (good for liver)
o Electrolytes- coconut water or electrolyte supplement
o What you eat before is more important than the greasy breakfast after
o Need protein and fat

o Amino acids in protein- Taurine boosts liver function
o Cysteine breaks down acetaldehyde (what’s leftover when liver breaks down ethanol)

o Coconut oil or EVOO
• Veggies and fruit for hydration and vitamin C

• One-for-one rule= for every drink have one glass of water
• Only one drink per hour – it takes your body 60-75 mins to metabolize alcohol
• Avoid high sugar drinks, beer if you are sensitive to gluten, aspartame (another toxin)- all will make a hangover worse

• Chug as much water as possible before bed
• B complex supplement
• Magnesium

The Next Day:
• More water
• Ginger tea helps with nausea
• Simple carbs (fruit) if feeling rough- when your blood sugar is low your liver produces more, but it can’t when it’s busy metabolizing the alcohol
