4 drinks that give you a headache

If you suf­fer from fre­quent headaches, it is worth cut­ting down on these drinks.



Some headaches can be caused by a vari­ety of fac­tors: stress, aller­gies, dehy­dra­tion, and even your diet. If you have tried all pre­ven­tion meth­ods, checked with a doc­tor, and headaches con­tin­ue, it may be one of the fol­low­ing drinks.

1. Energy

Oh, that’s the num­ber one cause of your migraine. Accord­ing to research by nutri­tion­ists and the labels of the drinks them­selves, many ener­gy drinks are just full of sug­ars, caf­feine and var­i­ous ingre­di­ents that should “pump” your ener­gy, charge you with vig­or.

But in fact, a quick boost of ener­gy is usu­al­ly fol­lowed by an equal­ly quick fall into an abyss of headaches, fatigue, and even drowsi­ness. Well, the caf­feine and sug­ar will do their side job of dehy­drat­ing you. If you often drink ener­gy drinks, do not be sur­prised by headaches. Bet­ter yet, cut back on your intake.

2. Fruit juices

It would seem, what is the fault of the juice? The fact is that fruit juices con­tain a lot of sug­ars. Espe­cial­ly pack­aged. Sug­ar direct­ly affects the ner­vous sys­tem, and not in the best way. Drink­ing the juice on its own, with­out any oth­er liq­uid or food, will cause a rapid rise and then an equal­ly rapid drop in blood sug­ar, which is bound to give you a headache.

If you want to enjoy juice, try cold-pressed veg­etable juices. They have more fiber, which reg­u­lates blood sug­ar lev­els. Just make sure the man­u­fac­tur­er does­n’t put a moun­tain of sweet­en­ers in your juice.

3. Alcohol

All alco­holic bev­er­ages, but espe­cial­ly beer and wine, are strong diuret­ics. This means that they direct­ly cause our bod­ies to lose water and elec­trolytes. That’s why your head hurts so much dur­ing a hang­over — if you get too car­ried away with beer or wine, you can orga­nize your­self the fastest pos­si­ble dehy­dra­tion of all.

Dur­ing the hol­i­days, do not for­get to stop in time and switch from strong alco­holic bev­er­ages to plain water. Also, when you go to bed after the hol­i­day, drink a bot­tle of water with elec­trolytes before bed. So the next morn­ing you wake up cheer­ful and with­out a headache.

4. Coffee

Yes, in this case we all agree. Morn­ing cof­fee can sig­nif­i­cant­ly spoil the mood for the whole day. Because caf­feine in the morn­ing, com­bined with the morn­ing rise in cor­ti­sol after wak­ing up, has not done any­one any good yet. And in gen­er­al, the pas­sion for caf­feine has not made any­one hap­py yet. Well, maybe for a cou­ple of hours.

But do not con­sid­er cof­fee evil. A small shot of espres­so is excel­lent if you have a headache. Even pills “from the head” often con­tain caf­feine, which, as it were, hints. But more than two cups is a sure­fire way to give your­self a migraine.
