Sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha will help you cure hangover

Suffering from a terrible hangover after Saturday night?

Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha are the key to cure headaches and nausea related to hangovers. These incredibly nutritious and gut-friendly foods are among the most effective natural remedies that help you recover.


If you partied hard the previous night and are now feeling dehydrated and craving a full English breakfast with a coffee latte or a large soft drink, think of a more healthy breakfast option with the addition of some fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi and drink a kombucha of kefir. 


These probiotic-rich foods will boost your digestive system health. They contain live bacteria which have a positive impact on the gut microbiome, something which can get damaged with excess alcohol consumption. 


Alcohol can be harmful to the gut. It disturbs the short-chain fatty acids, which are responsible for maintaining gut health by reducing inflammation and regulating immune function. In the body, the alcohol is converted into acetaldehyde and later into acetate, which then disturbs the short-chain fatty acids and causes hangover symptoms. 


Fermented foods keep the gut healthy and improve the intestinal barrier function, so it is less affected by alcohol. If you consume fermented foods after drinking, they will help you remove the alcohol from your body and reduce the hangover symptoms.  A short-chain fatty acid known as butyrate which is found in some kombuchas, can help restore he ratio.
