THE average Brit suffers three hangovers a month – with the booze causing a gut bacteria imbalance which can lead to a lower immune system.
So getting your microbial diversity right can help keep an epic hangover, or cold, at bay. We trialled what works best, and also sampled bath salts for pre-party pamper sessions. . .

If you take two before drinking and one before bed, it is claimed this will help to break down toxins and give your body a fighting chance against the booze.
I woke up alert, energised and, most importantly, without a banging headache. A genuine mid-week pocket miracle. Would definitely recommend.
Doctors recommend milkshakes as a simple, pill-free way to perk up after a heavy festive night out. I had a strawberry-and-clotted-cream flavour. Did it cure my head? No.
But the flavour took away the lingering prosecco, the sugar helped flagging energy levels and, at 249 cal per 330ml bottle, it was less calories than a fry-up. I’d have an aspirin next time.
Taken daily, these tablets help to limit stomach upsets and skin outbreaks, support a healthy gut-lining and immunity, and are a long-term gameplan to keep the worst of hangovers at bay. I swear by them.
I added a couple of handfuls to my bath for a pamper session and the delicious-smelling fragrance of these soon had me hooked. My skin felt ultra-soft.
They are a good- value option, that smell great, and I’ll definitely continue to use this product in future.
This didn’t disappoint. The sea salt is enriched with organic marjoram, lavender and geranium essential oils – so smells heavenly.
Lavender, as well as Seaweed & Arnica, are also available. All are special editions for the festive period. Love them. Definitely my favourite.
Dead Sea and Epsom salts are main ingredients, with magnesium and 21 other minerals. The smell of cedarwood mixed with lavender and camomile is relaxing.
The salts dissolve quickly under running water so there’s no graininess. Nice product, but pricey.
