During a recent article, ELLE Magazine reached out to nutritionists to ask them what their recommendations were on how to cure a hangover the right way - with a healthy diet.
Our very own Manal Chouchane, Nutritional Therapist and Clinical Nutritionist at BioCare®, shared her thoughts on what kinds of food and drink could help to clear your head effectively. Her answer? Coconut water and guacamole on toast which are good for hydration and providing the body with the good type of fat it craves during a hangover.
The stress and atrophy the body experiences during and after a person consumes a significant quantity of alcohol can often leave it depleted of a range of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. While excellent diet and hydration is the best method to recovery, these nutrients can also be readily replenished by use of a bioavailable vitamin and mineral supplement, such as BioCare® Adult Multivitamins and Minerals.

We were happy to see SucroGuard’s® efficacy to maintain healthy blood sugar levels recognised in December’s issue of Bella Magazine. Featured in their Better Body section, the article “Emergency Slimming Tips” discussed healthy recipes, tried and tested workouts, as well as weight-loss supplements.
During the 3-page article, it was suggested that dieters trying to lose weight could really benefit from a specialised, bioavailable vitamin and mineral complex, to stave off sugar cravings which some may struggle with.
The author went on to recommend BioCare’s SucroGuard® supplement as a solution to this problem, by means of its contribution to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels and macronutrient metabolism in the body.
This food supplement should be part of a balanced diet and it is also filled with important nutrients such as B vitamins, chromium and manganese.
In pondering how to overcome a hangover or avoid it altogether during the holiday season, news website Belfast Live offered numerous excellent suggestions in an article published on Boxing Day 2017.
Drinking juice, water and of course eating correctly were all discussed, but additionally Belfast Live reached out to BioCare’s Clinical Nutritionist Manal Chouchane for her expert opinion on the topic to discover what foods and drinks can help with hangovers.
“Coconut water is ideal for hydration and providing electrolyte balance.” Manal suggested as a quick and nutritious drink, loaded with sodium, potassium, and electrolytes. As far as something to eat, “guacamole on toast” was the answer as this simple, yet effective recipe provides the body with good fats, whilst also satisfying the craving for carbohydrates and fat foods experienced during a hangover.
While it is wise to avoid excessive alcohol consumption all together, we hope that you’ll remember Manal’s nutritional advice if you happen to need it.
