9 Foods That Tame A Hangover

Every guy has his own goofy hangover “cure.” But there are actual scientific reasons why these foods will help ease the hell that is your hangover.

5. SALMON
The B6 and omega-3 fats in salmon can boost your mood while combating things like headache and upset stomach.

6. BACON
Hold on, Porky: Eat too many fatty foods, and your stomach will feel even queasier. But bacon contains a lot of amino acids that can help replenish depleted neurotransmitters — and after the damage you did to your brain last night, it could use some help.

7. HONEY
Eat a few teaspoons after dragging yourself out of bed (you can just lick it off the actual spoon, or put it on toast). The fructose in honey will help your body metabolize the booze quicker. Plus, honey contains the electrolyte potassium.

8. CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
A bowl of soup will rehydrate you and replace lost electrolytes (salt) and potassium.

9. OATS
Along with pumping your body full of good stuff like B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and iron, oats can also help balance acid levels and absorb toxins. So eat some oatmeal and put honey and bananas on it for good measure.
