SPORTS DRINKS & COCONUT WATER
If a Cool Blue Gatorade is already your preferred remedy, you're good to go, since you do
need to replenish those electrolytes. But coconut water is also something to consider, thanks to its bonus potassium. Chernus recommends you keep an eye out for one that has a good stock of sodium, too, since that’ll help your body hold onto that water you’re desperately guzzling.
A BOWL OF CEREAL
Okay, maybe not one made of Lucky Charms marshmallows-and-Froot Loops
. But a fortified pick like Total can help you power through those TPS reports. “It has all the vitamins -- the B vitamins that are lost in metabolizing alcohol, and zinc, which we also lose,” Chernus says. “If your blood sugar is low (and it does run low from drinking), a bowl of cereal and a banana [for potassium] is a perfect hangover food. And it has milk, which helps to hydrate.”
