Reach for one of these healthy ingredients the next time your head is pounding​.

Baked Potato: The side you love with dinner could help soothe your aching head, especially if your headache is alcohol-related, says Erin Palinski, RD, a registered dietician in private practice in New Jersey. "Since alcohol is a diuretic, it can not only cause dehydration, but also cause you to lose electrolytes such as potassium," she says. "Eating potassium-rich foods can help to alleviate hangover-related headaches." Surprisingly, a baked potato (with the skin) is one of the most impressive sources of potassium, containing a whopping 721 mg. By comparison, a banana serves up 467 mg.
