DailyDirt: Hangovers -- Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Hangovers are pretty common for alcohol drinkers, but oddly, medical science doesn't really have an exact cause for the phenomenon. Sure, there's a bit of dehydration and trace amounts of toxic compounds from some alcoholic spirits, but brain inflammation from high alcohol levels seems to be just something that happens (pending further study). There have been some studies on hangovers, but no reliable cure just yet. If you want to try a few things that might work, check out some of the links below. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    1-2 (depending on the enormity of the event) medium (case size bought from Costco) sized bottles of Gatoraid G2 after the event and when I wake up the next morning it's as if I never went out or in or however I imbibed. Matter if fact I usually feel better when I wake up than I do when I don't drink prior to. I've been at this for a long time.
