Asparagus to Tackle Hangover

There are a number of ways which people try to lessen hangover. A glass of milk, bread and water before going to bed are some of the common ways to do the same.

A new study has found the solution in asparagus. It has been recently found that asparagus not only reduces hangover, but also protects liver cells from toxins. So, having a dish of asparagus to alleviate that booze effect is a great idea.

The study was taken out by a group of researchers from the Institute of Medical Science and Jeju National University in Korea. Study researchers have affirmed that amino acids and minerals found in the vegetable may be the reason that reduces booze effect.

Lead researcher B. Y. Kim said in order to reach at the above given result, they examined the components of shoots and leaves of asparagus. Objective of the study was to see the interaction of the components with liver cells of rats and humans.

"These results provide evidence of how the biological functions of asparagus can help alleviate alcohol hangover and protect liver cells", said B. Y. Kim. The study, published in the Journal of Food Science, has found that asparagus has mineral content in much higher level.
