Whether it’s celebrating the silly season, you have a special birthday, or event, or you just had one too many last night, this hangover elixir has got you covered! 

Reason being? The key ingredients aren’t just there to taste good, but the science behind them supports boosting your mood, replenishing diminished nutrients and increasing your body’s detoxification process to get that poison (yes your body sees and treats alcohol as poison) out of the body!

When it comes to hangovers, you may have heard about activated charcoal, this is something I recommend to my clients as no brainer, in fact if you can remember to have this before you drink and before you sleep you might not even need this elixir.

However, just so you know the jury is still out on whether or not it does in fact help. All I can say is from personal experience, that of my clients as well as family and friends… have all reported to feel better when they take it after alcohol consumption. It’s just important to take it away from other foods and supplements as it can stop the body from absorbing them. 

If you’ve forgotten to take your activated charcoal or you’d prefer to opt for something in the morning, I’ve concocked this little elixir… But why these specific ingredients? Keep reading to find out!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Coconut water: you need to replenish your electrolytes + rehydrate after a big night, after all alcohol can really dehydrate you. Often we turn to a sugary drink like powerade/gatorade to replenish them, but if you do that you’re looking at dealing with super high levels of sugar or artificial sweeteners – not here for it! Coconut water is a great alternative and you can find many low sugar varieties. 

Pineapple juice: this is great for boosting your serotonin levels (aka your mood stabilising + happiness hormone). With alcohol being a natural depressant, serotonin levels drop after a glass or two of your faves, so it can be great to add in something like pineapple that is high in tryptophan as serotonin is synthesised from tryptophan.

Orange juice + lemon juice: have been included as it contains the majority of your B vitamins, which can help you feel recharged and more like yourself, supporting energy, stress response and immune function too, lemon juice also supports the flushing out of the alcohol by stimulating the liver.

Salt: some added sea salt or kelp salt can be awesome again to assist in rehydration and balancing of those electrolytes, combined with the natural sugars from the orange and pineapple juice can be the perfect restoring balance! 

So without further ado… here’s the recipe for you to try!
