Drinking Coffee Before Wine Can Help You Avoid Getting A Headache

The toughest part of drinking can be a few hours later, or the next morning. Now there might be another way to avoid getting a headache after drinking wine– simply drink coffee before. Vinepair reports that three major offenders cause headaches after too much wine: tannins, sugar, and histamines. Tannins are natural compounds found in grapes that cause dry mouth, while histamines cause headaches, and sugar causes dehydration which can also cause headaches. Dr. Seymour Diamond, executive chairman of the National Headache Foundation, has said that drinking two cups of coffee before drinking wine will reduce your headache risk by constricting blood vessels, which curbs your headache.
