|Got Drunk, Now What, Coconut Water?|
I have 2 rules about drinking alcohol: Don’t get drunk and don’t get a hangover. That said, I’ve heard the rumors that say coconut water alleviates hangovers. Cocofina, a coconut water manufacturer, claims that it’s not a rumor and states that coconut water does indeed remedy hangovers.
In fact, the company has put this information on their website: Coconut Water Cocofina Hangover Remedy.
It’s true that any alcoholic drink will cause dehydration. But the type of dehydration that’s caused by drinking alcohol occurs at the cellular level. Fluid passes-out of individual cells throughout the brain and the rest of the body. This is one part of the hangover syndrome (only part).
Billions of human cells must be rehydrated for a serious drinker to be fully hydrated again, IF EVER. That takes time, lots of time, so much so that even intravenously administering fluids can’t “beat a hangover”.
MAKE COCONUT WATER YOUR DRINK
I try to enjoy holiday libations responsibly and then substitute coconut water when I reach my limit. That’s the best way to beat a hangover.
