Hangover Relief!

Brad Kolowich Jr. - asparagus
“Chances are you’ve all tried all the old wives’ tale sures for the hangover, inluding drinking more, but recent research from Korea suggests that asparagus may be the solution. Researchers from Jeju National University exposed human liver cells to asparagus extract and found that the vegetable more than doubled the activity of two key enzymes that metabolize alcohol in the body, a process critical for alleviating hangover symptoms. In addition, asparagus was found to help protect the liver from toxic insults of alcohol.

Try It At Home: Take 1,000-2,000 mg of asparagus officinalis extract after a night of drinking and in the morning upon waking, without food.”
