Consuming excessive quantities of alcohol can lead to a group of symptoms the next day that people commonly refer to as a hangover. There is currently no guaranteed cure for a hangover. Coffee might help with some symptoms, but it is unlikely to provide substantial relief.
Many people experience symptoms the day after drinking more alcohol than they can tolerate. These symptoms may include a headache, nausea, and feeling groggy and unrested.
There are many anecdotal claims that certain rituals or substances, such as coffee, can help cure a hangover. However, there is little to no evidence to suggest that drinking coffee can reverse the effects of consuming too much alcohol.
In fact, while it may ease some symptoms of a hangover, drinking coffee can actually prolong other symptoms. At present, the only way to prevent a hangover is to avoid drinking alcohol or drink it in moderation.
In this article, we discuss whether coffee can reduce or worsen a hangover and outline tips for dealing with hangover symptoms.
