Best Ways To Prevent/Cure a Hangover?!!?!?
- 06-11-2010, 02:45 PM
A hangover is caused when ethenol in the body is metabolised into acetaldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase which is then metabolised with acetaldehyde dehydrogenase and glutathion.
The problem is that glutathion stores in the liver deplete very quickly and cannot process the acetaldehyde fast enough, acetaldehyde being the more toxic alcohol. It is the acetaldehyde present in the blood that produces most of the symptoms and the rest can be attributed to glutamine rebound.
Here we go... How Stuff Works is better than me at explaining Glutamine Rebound and the reason.
After a night of alcohol consumption, a drinker won't sleep as soundly as normal because the body is rebounding from alcohol's depressive effect on the system. When someone is drinking, alcohol inhibits glutamine, one of the body's natural stimulants. When the drinker stops drinking, the body tries to make up for lost time by producing more glutamine than it needs.
The increase in glutamine levels stimulates the brain while the drinker is trying to sleep, keeping them from reaching the deepest, most healing levels of slumber. This is a large contributor to the fatigue felt with a hangover. Severe glutamine rebound during a hangover also may be responsible for tremors, anxiety, restlessness and increased blood pressure.The Historic PES Legend

Oh, one funny anecdote is that a few things are found to help a hangover.
1) Eggs because of the level of cyestine, it leads to produce glutathion faster and thus metabolize the acetaldehyde.
2) BACON Sammich... we knew it all along. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/04...hangover_cure/The Historic PES Legend

The higher the quality of Vodka, the clearer and more tasteless it will be. Right now the "best" is Chopin which is a potato vodka, I believe.
WRT hangover cures, water/aspirin/and charcoal caps (if you have them) never let me down but then I rarely drink and even more rarely to excess. Click here!

Eat before you start drinking alcohol to prevent a hang over. Or, drink lots of water right after. You need to rehydrate.

My surefire method is to chug at least 16 oz of water and take to Advil before I hit the sack. Then chug another 16 oz again when I wake up.
It also helps if you are properly hydrated before starting to drink

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

Also, almost everyone on here agrees that you should stay hydrated and chug as much water as you can before going to bed after drinking. What would be better purified water or distilled water?
