How does Tea Help in Alcohol Hangover?

  • However, a drunkard may feel that tea taste bitter and awful because his tongue and other senses were overcome and numbed by alcohol effect.
  • In order to overcome alcohol hangover, tea plays an important role to relieve alcohol effects and to sober up a drunkard’s mind. Tea has the ability to cool down and detoxify liver by flushing out alcohol accumulated in the body through urination.
  • Furthermore, tea does not dehydrate a person’s body, unlike alcohol and coffee. The reason is, tea produces water to all over the body system, helping the liver to function well with sufficient fluids and strengthen the blood flows too.
  • Besides that, tea has caffeine and theanine, two elements that induce calming effect to reduce headache, groggy vision and helps to refresh a person’s mind and consciousness mentally.
  • The caffeine in tea, especially green tea, helps to open and widen the blood vessels in your brain, so that the pressure that keeps throbbing your nerve muscles would be reduced.
  • Hence, the irritating headache gradually disappears. Tea also helps to strengthen the body stability physically, able to walk and stand steadily.
  • If you still feel weak, the feeling of nausea keeps coming back, this means your body still has the alcohol toxin.
  • Lay down on your bed or sofa to stabilize your body while you take a sip of a warm cup of green tea or Japanese tea.
  • One of the best thing about tea is, it keeps your bladder full; keeping you busy releasing your urination in the toilet. This method is useful to clean up your body system.

      For those who are not an alcohol drinker, tea helps to ward off the nausea, headache much faster than those heavy drinkers. Do drink green tea, not the normal teabags that add sugar. Good luck to you!

      I take green tea capsules when I'm tired for a natural energy boost but I never thought to take it for a hangover (not that it happens regularly). My Dad got re-married at the weekend and it was a Polish wedding so there was a lot of vodka involved and I've been feeling off all week simply because I rarely drink nowadays. Thanks for the great tips I'm off to have some tea.
