What is a Hangover?

Have you ever wondered why you feel so crappy the next day after drinking alcohol? When we drink alcohol, it is not digested and passes directly to your stomach then to the small intestines. Here it is absorbed quickly into the bloodstreams. If you had eaten something, this slows down the absorption while the opposite happens. Because alcohol blocks the production of a hormone that helps your body hold on to water, we get diuretic, the feeling of peeing all the time which leads to dehydration.

Alcohol also irritates the stomach lining that makes us feel like vomiting. The feeling of exhaustion and nausea is because of the imbalance in electrolytes like potassium and sodium. The headaches come from dehydration and the fact that alcohol causes our blood vessels to dilate/expand. All these feelings combined are what we call a hangover.

This is where this smoothie bowl comes in as the hangover cure. The smoothie bowl is loaded with frozen bananas and blueberries. The bananas are rich in potassium therefore they help our bodies replenish. The blueberries are 85% water and are also rich in nutrients that fight inflammation in your body.
