Natural Hangover Cures
It's no secret that moderate drinking (1-2 drinks/day) has a number of powerful
health benefits, which I document in my link on How Alcohol Can Benefit the
Brain and Heart. However, we humans at times go a little overboard.
If you do drink more than two drinks, is there anything you can do to to cure
those nasty hangover symptoms?
The primary problem is that alcohol has a nasty metabolite called acetylaldehyde
that can cause all kinds of problems for you body the next day. Acetylaldehyde
is really a mild toxin and so there is no miracle cure for flooding your system
with such a substance. Even so, some scientists have looked into whether
or not there are any aids or cures that can move along a hangover as quickly as

Here are a few that that have some legitimate evidence behind them.
1. Asparagus. This not-always-loved vegetable apparently
protects against hangover and alcohol toxins.
2. Milk. This dairy product also falls in the
how-to-prevent-a-hangover category. Apparently, milk slows down alcohol
absorption, giving you a better chance of avoiding the nausea and headache
associated with what is essentially acetylaldehyde poisoning.
3. Fructose. Fructose (and to a lesser extent glucose) help the body clear
the negative metabolic byproducts of alcohol intoxication. It does not
necessarily, however, help with the symptoms. 
4. Bacon Sandwich. While I wouldn't recommend this bad boy on a daily
basis, apparently a bacon sandwich, for reasons not fully understood by modern
actually seems to help clear alcohol
from your system more. Researchers think it's the combination of
carbs, aminos and smell.
5. Toast and Honey. According to the Royal Society of Chemistry,
there is no better hangover cure than this combination, which includes
alcohol-healing sodium, potassium and fructose. And who are we to argue
with the Royal Society of anything?
