Study says asparagus can help cure a hangover

It’s a Veggie Tale for grownups. A new study says asparagus isn’t just a good source of vitamins. It can also cure a hangover.

Who knew when mom said to eat your greens, she was giving sound drinking advice?

This wonder-veggie may protect liver cells against those toxins in your gin and tonic. Scientists say the amino acids and minerals in asparagus may help the body speed up the metabolism of alcohol.

You can thank the Institute of Medical Science and Jeju National University in South Korea the next time you wake up without a splitting headache after a night of partying.

But chowing down some bitter asparagus to cure a hangover? Yea, we’ll just stick with the greasy cheeseburgers.
