Morning is never good: 8 myths about hangovers

Myth #1. You need to drink alka-seltzer before going to bed.

This magic medicine (the active ingredient is aspirin) is better to drink in the morning, and before going to bed, try to drink as much warm water as possible. Professor David J. Clayton, one of the authors of The Healthy Guide to Unhealthy Lifestyle, praises ibuprofen very much: "Take 800 mg of ibuprofen an hour before you need to be in shape. Even if you felt terrible, you'll feel much better in an hour."

Myth #2. Low-calorie alcohol is healthier.

If only. According to a study by Chris Rayner, MD of the Australian Royal Adelaide Hospital, dry wine and champagne people get drunk the fastest. The reason? Due to the low calorie content, the drink is quickly removed from the stomach. The blood first passes through the liver, where a certain amount of alcohol is filtered out. But due to the rapid release of the stomach, the liver is oversaturated. Consequently, more alcohol passes through the circulatory system.

Myth #3. A hearty dinner will absorb alcohol and soothe a hangover.

It's not a bad attempt, but to relieve a hangover, the food should be in the stomach BEFORE drinking. If you're busy digesting a steak, your martini will take longer to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Be afraid of aperitifs!

Myth #4. When you drink through a straw, you get drunk more slowly.

It's not how the alcohol from the glass gets into your mouth, but the type of the glass itself. A study conducted at Cornell University found that people — even experienced bartenders-pour 20-30% more alcohol into a low glass with thick walls than into a high, narrow highball.

Myth #5. Wine is better than beer.

Why not? Wine is no more useful than beer. But the head from it in the morning, by the way, will hurt even more. It's all about the tannins contained in the wine. In general, alcohol ages you.

Myth #6. The more you weigh, the slower you get drunk.

In this case, it is more important what gender the one who gets drunk is. "Women always do it faster and stronger than men, even if the opponents are in the same weight category," the scientists say. Men have a higher concentration of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, which is responsible for the breakdown of alcohol, which means that their metabolism is better.

Myth #7. If the drinks are free, the calories don't accumulate.

OK, we know that you don't really believe this, but when someone else pays for everything, your opinion changes dramatically. The true cost of "happy hours" is this-four cocktails make a diversion against your diet weighing 880 kcal, which is equivalent to five glazed doughnuts! And a mug of beer is equal to a McDonald's cheeseburger.

Myth #8. And then I got poisoned with oatmeal cookies.

With the use of any alcohol, the body's resistance decreases as the level of this very alcohol increases. Therefore, "raising the degree" is even worse than "lowering". But it is best not to mix at all — it is easier to control your condition this way.
