Whether birthday, New Year’s Eve or wild evening with friends: There are many opportunities to sip a few glasses of wine, prosecco or other things in a relaxed atmosphere. And from time to time something is thrown overboard. You usually get the receipt a few hours later, in the form of a weak stomach plus a headache: the hangover is here!
That’s how you know you drink too much alcohol
But complaining won’t help now. But a really good hangover breakfast and plenty of water. This way you can supply your body with the most important nutrients it urgently needs to regenerate itself optimally.
Anti hangover food: Your body needs it now!
After a night of drinking not only the skull but also the belly is buzzing with hunger. No wonder, after all, your body needs new energy now to break down the alcohol and recharge its batteries.

Especially minerals and electrolytes washed out by the alcohol should be added. Whether you prefer to eat something sweet or salty is entirely up to you, with salty foods driving away the hangover faster. Salt is lost through dehydration, which is caused by alcohol consumption.
But listen to your desires during the hangover breakfast and follow them without a bad conscience. Usually your body knows itself what it can use (and keep with itself).

Does pickled herring really help against hangovers?
Yes, but this is not due to the recipe (herring roll preserved in cucumber and onion), but to the ingredients: A rollmop contains a lot of salt and magnesium, as well as protein, iodine, phosphorus and potassium. In other words, important (mineral) substances that have been removed from the body by the consumption of alcohol. But you can also replace these in other ways than by cold fish rolls. We will tell you how.
