Beating the New Year's Day Hangover

We know you’ll ring in 2013 with a few more drinks than you'd throw back on an average night out. Here are three tips for beating a hangover if you overindulge.

1) BEFORE YOU DRINK
Studies in the Quarterly Journal of Studies on Alcohol have shown that ingesting vitamin B6 prior to alcohol consumption can decrease hangover-like symptoms the next morning. Supplements containing B6 are plentiful at any sports nutrition store, in a variety of blends.

2) AT THE PARTY
You’re making your liver work extra hard when you drink alcohol; some smart snacking could help. Anything with chlorophyll in it can help detoxify your system and boost your liver function by more than 90%, according to research out of Japan. How to get chlorophyll? Green, leafy veggies (sorry).

3) THE MORNING AFTER
Still feeling a little queasy the next morning? Your natural reaction is to starve it and dry it out, right? Don’t. Make unsweetened tea and add some ginger—it reduces nausea by 40% in chemo patients, according to a study at the University of Rochester Medical Center. If tea isn’t your thing, try a ginger supplement or ginger chews.
