The five surprising ways to cure your hangover this festive season WITHOUT aspirin

With the party season in full swing, Brits up and down the country will be suffering the effects of a few too many mulled wines.

But if your kneejerk reaction is to reach for an aspirin, think twice as there are a range of surprisingly simple alternatives that can help banish a pounding headache.

A team of experts at Abakus Foods have told how ginger caaspin help prevent nausea, while a hot bath can give your lymphatic system a boost.

Here, we reveal the six best hangover cures to see you through the party season - no aspirin required.

1. Fructose

'This can help speed up alcohol metabolism, meaning that extra glass could pass through your body faster and you can feel 'back to normal' sooner. Try natural & fruity snacks to help this process. For example the jujube fruit is a great source of natural fructose and also contains potassium which can help rehydration.'

2. Greasy food

'This has long been rumoured to help with alcohol resistance. However, the one time you can legitimately eat greasy pizza and fries is before you start drinking, and the extra oil on the intestines can help slow the alcohol absorption. It's generally a good idea to eat well and not drink on empty stomach.'

3. Ginger

'This can help with an upset stomach, such as vomiting and nausea. Simply make yourself a ginger tea with a slice of fresh ginger in boiled water, or chew on some ginger sweets.'

4. Sweat

'Do this by working out or taking a hot bath, and thereby help your lymphatic system get rid of the toxins in your body. Beware of the sauna though as the excessive sweating could make you even more dehydrated and lower your blood sugar.'

5. Sleep

'This is still one of the best ways for human recovery of any kind. While you sleep, your organs get a chance to rest and restore. In case of a hangover, your liver is working hard to break down the alcohol and sleep allows its natural healing.'
