Whether you want to prevent a hangover before you’ve had your first cocktail, are looking for a last-ditch effort after having one too many, or, you woke up feeling like you’re knocking on death’s door, the following suggestions may help you nip hangover symptoms in the bud. Here’s what to do in advance of your first drink, what to take at night before going to bed, how to start your next morning, and tips to put into practice so you’re not sidelined by that night or the next day.

Pop a supplement. You can take the herb milk thistle before drinking alcohol to protect your liver, as it has natural hepatoprotective properties and can ease morning-after hangover symptoms. You can also take vitamin C and/or vitamin B-complex before drinking to help prevent a hangover. Keep in mind that taking these supplements may also hinder your ability to get a buzz. It’s always a good idea to have some food in your stomach before drinking alcohol, and it might help while taking these vitamins as well.
The Morning After
Have some ginger tea. Whether you wake up with mild or severe hangover symptoms, have a big glass of water and fix yourself some ginger tea to alleviate nausea and indigestion associated with hangovers.
