How To Prevent Wine Hangovers

If sipping on red wine leaves you with a headache, there’s a novel way to prevent it. Most people think sulfites in wine are the culprit behind their headaches, but other chemicals are likely to blame. Some studies suggest that a naturally occurring substance in wine called tyramine may cause headaches, possibly due to the way it affects blood pressure. Also wine, especially red wine, can also contain histamines, which some people can’t metabolize. So if you’re planning to drink red wine, taking a nondrowsy antihistamine prior to drinking might help prevent a headache. If you also notice you get headaches if you have a glass after a long workday, but not while on vacation your real issue may be stress. (Time)
