Home-remedies for a hangover abound, but some are better than others, especially when there's at least some science behind them. According to Good Magazine, a Japanese-inspired breakfast of miso soup and eggs can help soothe a bad hangover by replenishing some of the nutrients you lost while drinking.Photo by Tricia.
The miso soup and eggs trick comes from a longer list of tips of healthy ways to help a hangover, but the miso soup trick stood out partially because it's delicious but also because the combination of miso soup and eggs can return a lot of the nutrients lost during a long night of drinking to your body. The miso soup delivers sodium, water and electrolytes, and since it's loaded with probiotics, it may even soothe an upset and queasy stomach.
The same holds true for the eggs: the cysteine in eggs helps break down acetaldehyde, one of the toxins left behind as your body processes alcohol – specifically one of the ones you feel the most when you wake up the next morning. What do you think – is it just an excuse for a tasty breakfast, or would it really help? Share some of your favourite hangover cures in the comments.
