Silica in cucumber enhances its antioxidant activity to counter the effects of acids from alcohol or junk food. (5)

5. Eggs

Eggs are an easy-to-eat protein with a deep nutrition profile that is gentle to your stomach. With lots of B-vitamins, they can help relieve a headache and give your energy level a boost.

6. Kefir

This healthy drink is a fermented dairy product. Fermented foods’ probiotics are unsurpassed for promoting healthy digestion. Because it’s fermented, kefir’s lactose content is much lower than in other dairy products. As such, most people with a lactose intolerance can normally enjoy it. Opt for plain kefir to avoid added sugar.

7. Lemon Water

This water is alkalizing, hydrating, and a gentle digestive stimulant. A potent detoxifier and diuretic, lemon’s vitamin C content is always welcome.
