Looking For A Hangover Cure? Apparently This Lemonade Recipe Is It!

A New York based dietician has shared to social media what she claims is the ultimate hangover cure. So write this down for the next time you sink a few too many drinks.

With just four ingredients, it’s really a simple drink - but perhaps make it the night before so you don’t have the mess around whilst nursing a killer hangover. 

According to Monica, who has a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and a Master's Degree in Dietetics, drinking a combination of water, lemon juice, ginger, and turmeric will help you feel better after a long night of partying.

She prefaced her now viral TikTok with the following statement, 'I'm a dietician who lives in New York and likes to go out every weekend. I know a lot of dieticians on this app like to pretend that they're always eating fruits and vegetables, but nobody does that, it's not realistic,'

Monica’s recipe comprises of:

A large glass of water

3 tablespoons of lemon juice

3 tablespoons of ginger stir-in minced paste (or use fresh if you have it)

Turmeric & sweetener - Monica used a brand of sweetener containing turmeric, stevia, monk fruit and black pepper. 

According to Monica, the turmeric will help with bloating, the lemon juice is good for your skin, and the ginger will make your stomach feel better. 

She added: 'But the biggest reason you're going to feel better from this is hydration.'
