You went to your best friend鈥檚 wedding and drank your weight in shots and woke up feeling and looking absolutely terrible. While we鈥檝e seen every sort of hangover remedy around, science tells us that what鈥檚 really happening is dehydration due to your alcohol intake.


One trick we鈥檝e always thought worked really well because of this dehydration thing is having a kids electrolyte drink like Pedialyte around (think Gatorade but way stronger). So many people swear by it, and we鈥檝e also found moderate success having it on those mornings we swore we鈥檒l never drink again. But it turns out an even MORE common drink works way better: good old fashioned apple juice.

According to a recent study by the University of Calgary in Canada, which looked at what works best to rehydrate dehydrated and sick children, apple juice works better than any electrolyte drink like Pedialyte or Gatorade. Out of 650 kids who hit the emergency room with sickness-causing dehydration, only two and a half percent of the kids who got juice had to go back to hospital later where almost 10 percent of the electrolyte kids returned.

And like a sick little kid, when we鈥檙e hungover, we need to be rehydrated in order to feel better. For the best results, the study says that the juice should be mixed with a bit of water, so next time you鈥檙e planning a wild night out, make sure you鈥檝e got your juice in the fridge ready to go for the next morning. Hopefully you鈥檒l feel a little more human with each sip.
