Research is finally supporting what many of us already knew: Bacon helps relieve a hangover.
Despite all the hangover cures in a box, can or bottle, most people I know head for the tried-and-true greasy diner meal for relief.
Apparently, there are scientific reasons for this, according to the Newcastle University Centre for Life:
“Bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids. Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good.”
“Bingeing on alcohol depletes neurotransmitters too, but bacon contains a high level of aminos which tops these up, giving you a clearer head.”
Some may say this is a yet another study to prove the obvious, but a little validation every once in a while doesn’t hurt.
