  1. Juice beet root, carrots, oranges, and sweet potato with a juicer.
  2. Mix all juiced ingredients together and enjoy.

Why this recipe gives you hangover relief when you need it most:

Carrots are high in carotenoids, which are believed to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties that relieve muscle pain and headaches.

Sweet potatoes are a great source of carbs. They will give you a slow release of energy to help you make it through the day.

Hangover Relief Recipe #2: Apple, Cucumber, and Kale Juice

Why this recipe helps relieve hangovers:

Juice made with cucumbers helps reduce inflammation, soothes digestion, and keeps you hydrated.

The apple juice in this recipe also contains f electrolytes–salt ions–which maintain the balance of fluids between the inside and outside of cells. This balance is vital for hydration, nerve impulses, muscle function, and maintaining a consistent pH level.

Why this recipe promises to provide hangover relief:

The bromelain found in pineapple is thought to help reduce the high levels of inflammation that occur in the body due to a hangover. Along with inflammation relief, the pineapple’s sweetness helps to correct low blood sugar levels, relieving headaches and dizziness.

Why this recipe helps cure hangovers:

Peppermint promotes proper digestion and alleviates anxiety, gas, bloating, and acidity as well as nausea. It also speeds up the detoxification process to provide instant relief from a hangover.

Aside from the peppermint, carrot juice helps cleanse the digestive system and remove toxic elements from the digestive tract.
