4. Try a famous Southeast Asian spice.
Turmeric is not only used to give life to bland food but can also ease your hangover symptoms. Curcumin, its active ingredient, lessens the effects of acetaldehyde, the toxins caused by alcohol consumption. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help with reducing feelings of headache and fatigue.
FUN FACT: Turmeric is a famous hangover solution in Japan and the Japanese are known for their "drinking meetings", so if they swore by this, we might as well listen.
OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: We mixed hot water with one teaspoon of turmeric powder, one teaspoon of honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon powder. According to studies, black pepper can improve absorption of curcumin so we added some of that. We tried the turmeric tea and we felt it eased upset stomachs. Some felt their hangover lessened, some claimed nothing changed. Overall 3/5.
