Dark Coloured Alcohol Causes Worse Hangovers

In the holiday season, alcohol is a common beverage, and a hangover is a common problem. Recent studies show that drinking lighter colored alcoholic beverages rather than darker alcoholic beverages lessens your hangover symptoms.

The study conducted to obtain this information included 95 healthy adults, men and women. They were given either dark liquor or light liquor, enough to get them drunk. The following day they were surveyed. The adults who drank dark liquors reported symptoms of sickness and feeling hung over much more than those who drank light colored liquors. However, both groups had comparable levels of impairments with various tasks the next day.

The reason researchers give for the effects of dark alcohol being more severe than light alcohol is the fact that dark alcohol has up to 37 times more toxins than light alcohol. Bourbon was found to be the worst drink when trying to avoid a hangover; better options would be white wine, vodka, and gin.

Whisky, red wine, and beer cause more hangover symptoms the next day than many other drinks do. Although beer and whisky are fairly light toned drinks, they contain numerous chemical byproducts which are attributed to hangovers.

In fermenting materials to make alcoholic beverages many byproducts of materials, called congeners, like woods casks and grains, are used. These have toxic effects on the alcohol which causes the hangover symptoms. Bourbon has 37 times the congeners than vodka.

To cure your hangover completely, medications are always helpful. Taking a swig of Pedialyte before bed but after drinking, can prevent your hangover symptoms in the morning. Dissolving a tablet of Alka-Seltzer Wake-Up Call into a glass of water in the morning may also help. Other drugs such as Rosiglitazone help to relieve your hangover symptoms.
