10 Weird Hangover Remedies That Actually Work


There's nothing like an amazing night out with friends, but (sadly) sometimes you end up paying for it the next morning. Your head is pounding, your stomach is not cooperating, and you kind of just feel like you've been hit by a truck. There are so many weird hangover remedies out there, but how do you know what actually works?

There isn't a whole lot of scientific research out there on how to cure a hangover, according to The Guardian. Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall, who spent 10 years researching his own hangover cure for the book Hungover: The Morning After and One Man's Quest for the Cure, told The Guardian, "The most obvious reason is just a sort of moralistic one. Doctors who are pressed for time say: ‘Why am I going to waste my time on this? All you have to do is not drink."

Bishop-Stall told The Guardian that his remedy involves taking milk thistle for the liver; the amino acid and immune system aid N-acetylcysteine; vitamins B1, B6, and B12, which boost metabolism; and frankincense, an anti-inflammatory, after drinking but before you go to bed, all of which are available at your local pharmacy or online. But these are 11 other hangover remedies you can try that are a little simpler than Bishop-Stall's method.
