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 could end up being your go-to when searching for that illusive hangover cure. 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. Some Apple cider vinegar studies suggest it can potentially rebalance your system by altering the level of health-boosting electrolytes to the bloodstream [1]. Vinegar is also a natural diuretic, which means that it helps your body combat the morning-after fluid retention from the night-before. Reducing fluid retention is known to help with headaches and to get the toxins out of your system.

Apple Cider Vinegar Hangover Cures

Naturally at OSU, we would recommend the best way to conquer your hangover with apple cider vinegar is in a large glass of water with 2 tablespoons of OSU apple cider vinegar added. Not a fan of ACV’s taste? OSU has the added benefit of being formulated with natural apple juice, so it’s more palatable when you’re feeling fragile. You can also opt to add in a teaspoon of honey which has its own reputation for being a hangover cure [2]. Requiring an additional boost? ACV can also be easily incorporated into your favourite smoothies and juices. We love making our delicious OSU Superfood Smoothie which is jammed pack with ingredients to help detoxify and reduce internal inflammation, or for an anti-oxidant punch, why not also try our ever popular OSU Cherry Cooler?
