Could Asparagus Help Your Hangover?

I've heard all sorts of crazy hangover cures, from Bloody Marys to pickled herring. The only surefire solution I've found is lots of water and, well, not drinking too much. However, a new study suggests that asparagus could also aid your post-indulgence misery.

Apparently, the nutrients that make asparagus so good for you in other ways could also prevent hangovers. Researchers in South Korea studied the effects of asparagus on human and rat liver cells and found that the cells could be protected by the amino acids and minerals found in the green veggie.

Who knows if an asparagus-heavy dinner could really make a difference, but considering that asparagus is also high in vitamins K, C, A, folate, and potassium, it's definitely better than fending off your hangover with a greasy late-night meal. Do you think you'll give it a try?

I love aparagus, but usually when I get drunk I do it on the town and eat out. Asparagus is really hard to find in restaurants where I am, but I have no objections to steaming or grilling some up anyway! (And an awesome hangover cure is pulpy OJ and sleep)

eating something before you sleep (the night you get drunk) and plenty of water really helps with hangovers. Asparagus is a really expensive vegetable compared with other legumes.

I never get hangovers, but maybe that's because I always make sure I eat plenty of fruits and veggies when I drink anything...I'm sure the nutrients and antioxidants in them must do something good to counteract the liquor.

Probably not. I haven't been hung over in a while, but I think the best remedy is bed rest and water.

I'd try it!! though asparagus pee may be that much more offensive if I DO get a hangover....
