Festive Season Recovery Drinks

The festive season is now entering full swing. The next couple of weeks will be full of Christmas parties before we have the day itself, and then there are more celebrations around New Year. Even with the best of intentions it is likely you are going to end up drinking, and eating, too much and having to deal with the inevitable consequences – a hangover.

As we probably all know one of the main causes of hangovers is the dehydration associated with drinking alcohol. As even the Drinks Industry admit, ethanol, the raw alcohol in your drink is a toxic chemical. Essentially it acts a diuretic so we can easily end up passing out more fluid than we are taking in. As this happens we lose vitamins and minerals, leaving our bodies depleted.

While lots of people swear by tea and bacon sandwiches to deal with hangovers, more and more people are recommending cold pressed juices as a healthier hangover cure. A number of our customers have particularly praised the healing powers of our Wheatgrass Wakener cold pressed juice after a night of excess. 

Why cold pressed juices are good for hangovers

Most people use cold pressed juices to enhance their diet as part of a healthy lifestyle. However, they do also double up as a handy hangover cure. A bottle of cold pressed organic juice can help with recovery in a number of ways.

  • Dehydration is the main cause of hangover symptoms. A bottle of cold pressed juice contains the fluids needed to start re-hydrating the body and getting you back to normal. We recommend that our cold pressed juices are kept in the fridge, and the coolness of the drink can also add an extra level of soothing.
  • As our juices are cold pressed daily, and don’t have preservatives put into them, they are a fantastic source of vitamins and minerals which are lost after a night of drinking. Our Wheatgrass Wakener is a good source of vitamin B  but also contains vitamin A and C. The vitamin B, in particular, is often seen as helping with fatigue. Handy if you have had a late night.
  • Although our juices only contain pure pressed fruit and juices they do contain natural sugars and enough calories to give your body a nice energy boost, helping you feel more alive.
  • Depending on what you have been drinking, and eating, the night before it is common to wake up with a nasty taste in your mouth. Out tasty cold pressed juices can help to get rid of this taste and replace it with a natural healthy one.
  • Having a healthy, organic, cold pressed juice can help you feel more virtuous as you know you are putting something healthy into your body to replace the booze.

If you have lots of Christmas parties coming up this season then it can be a good idea to have some of our cold pressed juices delivered so they are handy for when you need them. Drinking one of our cold pressed juices every day will also help to keep your body in tip-top condition generally so that you have the energy to deal with everything Christmas is going to throw at you.
