Thomas Jefferson University Scientist: Cure for Hangover is Coffee and an Aspirin

The Hangover whos baby is this zack gallafanaicas 300x225 Thomas Jefferson University Scientist: Cure for Hangover is Coffee and an AspirinCaffeine and Anti-inflammatories Combine to Counteract Ethanol and Acetate

By Matt Goldstein

Whiskey Goldmine will be the first to tell you that the quickest relief from a hangover is to drink water, and lots of it. The majority of all headaches are caused by dehydration, which is exactly what happens to the human body when drinking too much. However, a new study at Thomas Jefferson University by research scientist and professor, Michael Oshinsky, is believed to have proven that coffee and aspirin block acetate and relieve hangover headaches. Acetate is the active chemical in ethanol, also known as pure alcohol, which creates headaches. The combination of caffeine and anti-inflammatories counteract the acetate and appear to relieve the pain. We’ve always known that aspirin can relieve aches and pains but the combination with the coffee creates a specific pain reliever for alcohol and hangover symptoms. Don’t forget to drink water!

Surviving a Hangover:  Critical Tips

 

Don’t worry; you’re not dying just yet.  That repetitive pounding sound that won’t go away is just a headache, albeit a deafening one, and even though you feel as though your stomach’s eating itself, the aching won’t last forever.  If you’re unable to scrounge up the resiliency to make it through your post-night out hangover without any help, some of the tips in this article may help your case.  That way, the day after you drink is a soothing one, or at least a lot less painful to deal with than it would be without any help.

 

Bread it up…

 

Before or even while you’re drinking alcohol, make sure your stomach has something in it.  Breads, in particular, work well because they can sop up much of what enters your system.  An empty stomach is just asking for direct absorption into your bloodstream, which will make you get drunk considerably faster than if you’d had bread in your stomach in the first place.

 

Keep it comfy…

 

If it’s too late for the bread to make any difference, you’ve probably made it to the next morning feeling like zombie death.  Don’t worry too much yet, though.  Spend the next morning somewhere quiet and relatively dark, where surprise loud noises can’t reach and blinding sunlight is blocked from penetrating through.  Take a warm bath (if you’re able to function well enough… don’t do this if you can’t stay awake or control all of your bodily functions yet), and when you’re out, put on a large, absorbent bathrobe.  That way, you won’t have to worry about putting your clothes back on, or getting dressed into clothes that are too difficult to change into as of yet.

 

Sleep it off…

 

The only thing that cures drunkenness in the end is time.  No amount of coffee or Tylenol is going to make a difference, so if you can manage to work past the pangs in your sides and drift back off into sleep, you should do so.  That will help get you past the worst parts, so by the time you wake up again, you may feel a lot better (even if you’re still a little groggy).  Drink plenty of water and remember to go to the bathroom if you need to.  The less moving you do in the end, though, the better, as you don’t want to put your body through any additional undue stress after you packed quite the wallop last night while drinking.

    I heard that the government regulates how much water they actually put in water so that you cant cure your hangover as quick and then have to drink more water. And that now they are lowering the amount of water even more because kids are getting spots on their teeth. and its all about the kids, right?

    Hairyhobo, I completely agree with you about the less water in the water. I’m pretty sure these are the same Jews behind 9/11.
