Raw Eggs

The buzz all over the net for American-style hangover cure is knocking back a shot of “prairie oysters.” They consist of 2 raw eggs, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, black pepper, and salt. There’s more cysteine in raw eggs than cooked ones, so that part makes a lot of sense. Cysteine is the protein that breaks down acetaldehyde, the chemical that’s left over when your liver breaks down ethanol, causing your headache in the process. The sauces have salt and vinegar so… The electrolytes? Yeah, we’ll go with that.
