10 Weirdest Hangover Cures that Totally Work

It happens to the best of us. Too many bevvies and an early start the next day. What are some great ways to sure a hangover? Here are some of the best!

 1. Coconut water wellness

  • It’s true – best from a real coconut, but the bottled stuff is fine.
  • It contains five essential electrolytes – sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus.
  • This means it is more Isotonic, with less carbs and calories than a typical sports drink.

2. Miso soup saviour

  • Contains all essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.
  • Restores beneficial probiotics to the intestines.
  • Is a good vegetable-quality source of B vitamins (especially B12)

  • One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
  • Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.

4. Cordial cures ya

  • The Australian government does not like cordial at all: Sweet drinks such as juice, cordial and soft drinks may cause health problems for children if consumed in large amounts. Problems may include tooth decay, diarrhoea and a poor appetite.
  • I don’t care what they say – cordial rocks for curing a hangover – get swillin!
  • Also has fewer calories than some soft drinks.

  • The omega 3 and fatty acids can help you
  • Think oysters, salmon and scallops. But yuck!
