Science Explains Hangover Cures

Eggs, juice, and bananas make the perfect breakfast, plus tons of water

Everyone may have their own specific hangover cure (you know, Pedialyte, an everything bagel piled with cream cheese, a bloody mary), but Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown behind AsapSCIENCE bring you the scientifically proven methods of avoiding and curing a hangover.

Naturally, the first part starts with pregaming, and by pregaming we mean stuffing your face with carbs and fatty foods. Fatty foods slow the absorption of alcohol, calm stomach irritation, and all that fun stuff. Carbs, on the other hand, help with blood sugar and nausea.

Then, pound that water to stay hydrated. Stay away from dark liquor or red wine, drink some more water, and when you get home, take some aspirin (but not Tylenol!). In the morning, fix up some eggs, bananas, and fruit juice for yourself, and prep for your next night out all over again. Watch below for all the big scientific explanations.
