It’s that time of year… you know it, I know it, the paracetmol in your cupboard certainly knows it…it’s party time. And whilst we are not saying – go out – get wasted, we are saying that where there’s booze there is also an almighty hangover just around the corner. We have devised the perfect hangover cure for you to whip up the morning after the night before. Nearly all hangovers are a result of dehydration, potassium deficiency and loss of all-important electrolytes. So we’ve included ingredients that counteract this. And we’ve kept it super simple on purpose as who wants to faff around with five different herbs when your head is pounding.
Here’s whats in it (and why it’s in it):
330ml Jax Cocoa Coconut Water
Your dehydrated. That is what alcohol does, it’s a diuretic. All your lovely lost fluids have been replaced with horrid toxins and in order to feel better you have to fill your body back up with water, electrolytes and potassium. Trainer to the stars and founder of www.twentytwotraining.com Dalton Wong says “if you are feeling tired or lethargic, it might be a potassium deficiency so ditch the coffee and grab a Jax Coco water”. As coconut water is not just high in electrolytes but potassium too it helps with hangover’s no end.
1 large banana
Bananas are also full of potassium.They are also a good way to refuel and give you a bit of energy.
1 large kiwi
Kiwi’s are full of both potassium and vitamin C. You will also need vitamin c to help your body along with the detoxification process and unbeknown to most kiwis have one of the highest content of vitamin C amongst all the fruits.
Also full of potassium… we see a pattern emerging, the pineapple is a great hangover helper. It is also packed with bromelain, which is an incredibly helpful natural anti-inflammatory that encourages the healing of bruises and swelling in the body #justsaying.
Chop and blend! Then serve. Add ice to chill.
