Ladies and Gents. If you’re waking up this morning feeling a little delicate from overdoing the vino last night, and the hangover is taking it’s toll, then this may be of interest to you. If you’re unable to catch up on any lost sleep which by the way is the best cure, then one of the best things you can do, straight after drinking a pint of water, is drink a can of full fat Coke. You may already know this hack. I’ve said it before, but a can of full fat Coke is a very underrated hangover cure. If you’ve never heard this, then I think you’ll like the benefits it offers.

Sometimes known as ‘the little red ambulance’ or ‘black doctor’, When your hungover, you’re dehydrated, so it makes sense that you need to rehydrate in order to feel halfway normal again. By drinking water and a can of coca cola, which has lots of sugar and caffeine, this will automatically start getting your energy levels back up and running again. However, maybe more importantly, it can cure the pounding headache, as caffeine has vasoconstrictive properties, meaning that blood vessels narrow to restrict blood flow. If you’re feeling sick, then this carbonated beverage with its slight fizz, also helps settle the stomach and calm down the dreaded nausea whilst replenishing fluids and glucose lost by throwing up after a night of over indulging. Nice! Incorporated with a packet of salt and vinegar crisps to replace lost electrolytes completes this medication.

The Takeaway

Yes, it’s not healthy, but sometimes needs must. As you’ll know by now, I never promote this kind of sugar extravaganza or processed rubbish, but when you’re feeling a little delicate, and feel like the reapers on his way, then this once in a while might be the way to go. It’s cheap, effective and It certainly works for me.
