If you have struggled through a Sunday with a hangover, then you're not alone. We've all been there, but luckily you can cut that hangover short by consuming two things.
A physiologist from the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin–Madison Medical School, Kevin Strang, PhD., spoke to Buzzfeed and revealed the two things that are scientifically best for your hangover.
What you really need to beat the hangover is a sports drink and chicken noodle soup either pre or post-hangover.
According to Strang, these two things are able to deliver much needed salt, sugar and water to the system.
Strang explained that dehydration and low blood sugar is what makes you feel so terrible. The liver is unable to give you the glucose you need because it's too busy detoxifying the alcohol.
To kick the hangover, you need salts and sugars - which you get from the sports drink, while the soup delivers salt and B vitamins - which is found in meat and in chicken broth. And if you're a vegetarian, miso soup is a good alternative.
