What is the best hangover cure? [vlog #11]

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Vlog

Mark Holmes, Alcohol Quit Guru, uses his former alcoholic expertise to recommend the best hangover cure in the world! His own secret concoction!

Good morning, and welcome to the Sobriety Vlog. Today’s question is, What is the best hangover cure?

I mean, technically, this is a sobriety vlog so I don’t know why I’m asking myself what is the best cure for hangovers because I’m supposed to be encouraging sobriety.

But then I think, look, this is also meant to appeal to people who want to stop drinking alcohol, the potential buyers of my book, “Holmes’s Complete Guide To Stop Drinking Alcohol,” so I’ve got to appeal to drinkers too.

Drinkers want to know what is the best hangover cure from the expert!

1. Rehydration

You’re definitely going to have to rehydrate, so if you wake up parched in the morning, rehydrate with water, so that’s the number one tip.

2. Fresh Orange Juice

Number two. Drink orange juice, fresh orange juice if you can, or even better, eat oranges. Why? Because you’re going to lack Vitamin C potentially. Often alcoholics in recovery – we look at a detox diet in the book – might need vitamin C.

3. Fruit Rainbow

In fact, I would, if I was really hungover, get myself some fruit. That would be a great start. Just go to the fruit shop and raid it! Get some strawberries, get some oranges, because they’ve also got lots of different nutrients. So  get yourself a little rainbow of fruits.

Some red, some purple… Red orange, yellow – “Roy” – “G” – green – “Biv” – blue, indigo violet. Yeah, do a little rainbow of fruit. FRUIT RAINBOW! That’s my recommendation for the perfect hangover cure.

They’ve got riboflavins, is is it called riboflavins? I can’t remember, it’s in my book.

The only other thing I can think of as the best cure for a hangover is don’t get drunk!


RED: 2 Strawberries
[Vitamin C + Manganese]


YELLOW: 1 Banana + 1 Lemon

GREEN: 1 Avocado [B2/Riboflavins] + 1 Kiwi

BLUE: 1 Water + 1/2 Coconut Water

INDIGO: 2 Grapes
[Vitamin C & Vitamin K]

VIOLET: 1 TBSP Chia Seeds
[NB. Brown NOT Violet!]

Blend for 3 minutes.

The Best Hangover Cure In The World.

Have a great day.
