Honey is the best hangover cure
Honey is the best New Year's Day hangover cure according to the Royal Society of Chemistry.
With the Christmas and New Year here, the researchers have discovered a sweet way of getting rid of a hangover. According to researchers the fructose in honey is an essential compound that helps the body break down alcohol into harmless by-products, The Daily Telegraph reported. Lead-author of the present study, Dr John Emsley states, “The reason why hangovers are so painful is that alcohol is first broken down into acetaldehyde, a substance which is toxic to the body.”
“The happiness comes from alcohol. The hangover comes from acetaldehyde. This is the toxic chemical into which alcohol is converted by the body and it causes a throbbing headache, nausea, and maybe even vomiting. The hangover disappears as the acetaldehyde is slowly converted to less toxic chemicals,” he said. Dr Emsley said that drinking a glass of milk first, sticking to clear alcohols such as gin and mixing in the occasional soft drink were just as helpful as was sinking a glass of water before you go to bed.
