Hangover Helper: Bump Up the B Vitamins the Night Before

Science hasn’t invented a magic hangover pill...yet. Until then, take a B-complex supplement -- containing B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), folic acid, B6 and B12 -- before you go out drinking as a preventative measure, suggests Natasha Turner, naturopathic doctor and author of The Hormone Diet and The Carb Sensitivity Program.
