Ladies and gentlemen, start the pee jokes! The results of a recent study indicate that asparagus might help cure hangovers. Forget the greasy food, reach into the fridge and start gnawing on some stalks. Check it out:
A new study shows that the amino acids and minerals in asparagus extract may ease hangovers and protect liver cells against the toxins in alcohol.
Researchers at the Institute of Medical Science and Jeju National University in South Korea analyzed the effect of extracts of asparagus shoots and leaves on human and rat liver cells in the lab.
Nice – asparagus not only helps with hangovers, it also helps protect the liver against toxins. We think it would make an excellent addition to a bloody mary. With all that protection, we can make it a double, yeah?
