[Article in Danish]

Author information



We conducted a randomized, single-blinded study of the effect of alcohol intake during a hangover. We measured cardiovascular parameters, and the participants filled out a series of questionnaires regarding their well-being. We found, that an intake of five beers led to a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure, heart rate and self-reported feeling of palpitations. However, the self-reported sense of well-being did not improve. In addition, we found that the risk of brain freeze increased, as the beer's temperature fell.
