Most of the time when we wake up after a night out we find ourselves scrambling around the kitchen looking for anything to cure us and rid the dreaded hangover.
This usually results in an indulgent mountain of carbs, upon carbs, upon carbs.
But apparently, according to research from George Mason University, the solution to restoring life back into our body after a night on the sauce is one simple food.
The study said: “Alcohol makes you pee a lot, and that means that not only do you get dehydrated, you drain a lot of important nutrients, chief among them potassium.”
Yes, you guessed it.
Although the last texture we want in our mouth is that of a banana, it could be your best bet to feeling (somewhat) normal again.
The study also stated: “In addition to the liquid expelled during frequent urination, certain salts and potassium required for proper nerve and muscle function are also lost.”
“Alcohol turns the body’s supply of glycogen into glucose and sends it out of the body in the urine.”
“Lack of this energy source is a key part in the feeling of weakness, fatigue, and lack of coordination the next morning.”
So, for anyone looking for the cure after one too many tequilas last night, look no further than the fruit bowl.
