Wellbeing, the morning after: It’s so great to let off some steam over drinks but oh, the repercussions can hit hard. So we did a little research to help boost recovery.sports74.ru
Apart from dehydration, it’s thought that we deplete our levels of magnesium, electrolytes and B vitamins when we drink a lot of alcohol.
Here are a few pointers that may help to alleviate the pain and get you back on track:
Increase Magnesium Intake: Magnesium rich foods include raw cocoa, green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, sesame seeds and Brazil nuts, Avocados, Bananas and dried figs, mackerel and fresh tuna.
Boost Electrolytes: Electrolytes relate to the balance between sodium and water in our systems, which helps make sure specific bodily functions run at optimal levels. High intake of alcohol makes demands on the body, such that electrolytes are depleted, which can lead to cramping. Adding a pinch of good quality salt to fluid intake will help (Sea Salt, Celery Salt).
B Vitamins. These are lost due to increased urinary output when we consume a lot of alcohol. This accounts for the fuzzy-headed, energy zapping feeling. Foods rich in Vitamin B include Eggs and dairy.
