Without a doubt, the number one super food to combat a hangover is garlic. whilst some mentions on this list will simply make you feel better, garlic actively troubleshoots the root of your hangover. Your hangover simply won’t end until your liver has processed all the alcohol out of your system, so eating garlic is proven to activate liver enzymes. It also contains allicin and selenium, two other compounds that aid this process.

Honey is widely used around the world to help alleviate a number ailments.

The fact that honey is jammed packed with natural sugars, namely sucrose, these help your body in boosting your metabolism and getting rid of alcohol and other toxins and bi-products from a heavy night of drinking. Honey is also a great source of potassium, which your body looses a lot of during drinking, and needs replacing urgently.

Eggs

There is plenty of science to back up our claim that eggs are one of the best foods for a hangover cure.

The main reason that you get a hangover is because after drinking a lot your body produces a bi-product called acetaldehyde which is a toxic substance. It’s this toxic substance which causes all of your hangover symptoms. Your body tries to get rid of this by producing a chemical called glutathione, but your body cant produce it quickly enough. Eggs are an excellent source of cysteine which is contained in glutathione and it is this that will clear up all of the nasty bi-products in your body.

So whether your like your eggs poached, fried, scrambled or boiled, makes sure to have plenty for your breakfast the morning after your hen party and hopefully the eggs will be the perfect hangover cure for your hen party.

These range of super foods will soon kick that horrid hangover’s butt!
