Apple Cider Vinegar for Hangovers

Duration: 3 minutes
Tis the season of over indulgence and revelry, and with festivities in full swing, it’s time to batten down the hatches for the inevitable Christmas and New Year’s parties. No matter how good your intentions initially were dancing into December, if you do find yourself reading this with a little bit of head-ache, we’ve got you covered! In this post we jaunt through the wonders of Apple Cider Vinegar and how it is claimed to be the go-to when searching for that illusive detox hangover cure[1]. So put down your deep pan pizza and banish that bacon butty, because here’s a more virtuous way to get you back to your best.

    How Does Apple Cider Vinegar Get Rid Of Your Hangover?

    Drinking alcohol beyond recommended guidelines not only dehydrates you and makes your whole system more acidic, but it can also cause your blood sugar levels to drop and your electrolytes to become imbalanced. These effects result in leaving you feeling tired and depleted all round[2]. Some Apple cider vinegar studies suggest it can potentially re-balance your system by altering the level of electrolytes to the bloodstream, boosting energy levels [3]. Pure vinegar is also a natural diuretic, which means that it helps your body combat the morning-after fluid retention from the night-before[4]. Reducing fluid retention is known to help with headaches and to get the toxins out of your system[5].

    Is Apple Cider Vinegar a Hangover Cure?

    It is claimed online that a way to conquer your hangover with apple cider vinegar is in a large glass of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar added [6]. Not a fan of the taste of ACV? OSU has a great taste because it's formulated with natural apple juice, so it’s more palatable when you’re feeling fragile[7]. You can also opt to add in a teaspoon of honey which has its own reputation for being a hangover fixer[8]. Requiring an additional boost [9]? ACV can also be easily incorporated into your favourite smoothies and juices. We love making our delicious OSU Superfood Smoothie and our refreshing OSU Cherry Cooler?
