"Hangover" is a result of excessive drinking of alcohol, in which the limits of alcohol intake of each person are not equal based on their health and the unequal capability to control alcohol concentration in the bloodstream. Thus, some people can drink alcohol without a hangover while some people can drink only a little amount and become hangover.
In general, a hangover is the result of alcohol level in the bloodstream causing the excretion of water from the body. This effect causes dehydration, lower blood sugar levels, and the stimulation of body inflammation. These results will lead to a hangover followed by headache, fatigue, lack of energy, body aches, dry mouth, thirst, light or noise sensitivity, and moody. The way to cure a hangover is drinking plenty of water and eating B-complex vitamins.
In addition, foods that help reduce hangovers are carbohydrates, coconut water, bananas, and all kinds of fresh fruits.
