Fat sticks to the stomach lining, which slows down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream.”  explains Albert for O magazine.

Albert recommends to eat some (lightly) buttered toast or whole-wheat pancakes. And to have a glass of orange juice to replenish depleted vitamins reserves.

ALKA SELTZER: Alcohol leaves the body overly acidic. This classic bicarbonate neutralizes the stomach one fizzy bubble at a time.

ASPARAGUS: Researches have found that amino acids in this veggie accelerate the breakdown of alcohol, reducing the symptoms of a hangover.

B6 VITAMINS: In one study, the vitamin decreased hangover severity by 50 percent. B6 supplements are available at most drug stores.

MERCY SODA: Consumed before bedtime, this can offset acetaldehyde, a toxic alcohol byproduct that contributes to nausea and headaches.

PRICKLY PEAR EXTRACT: Popping the fruit extract (available at health food stores) before drinking can alleviate dry mouth and nausea.
