Are last night’s festivities making your head pound and stomach queasy? Research is finally supporting what many of us already knew: Bacon helps relieve a hangover.
We’ve all tried the hangover cures in a box, can or bottle, but most people I know head for the tried-and-true greasy diner meal for relief.
Researchers claim food also speeds up the metabolism helping the body get rid of the booze more quickly.
Elin Roberts, of Newcastle University’s Centre for Life said: “Food doesn’t soak up the alcohol but it does increase your metabolism helping you deal with the after-effects of over indulgence. So food will often help you feel better.
“Bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids. Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good.”
