Like most of us here, you’re probably dealing with a serious hangover this morning. Well, we have some great news for you. In a recent article on FoxNews.com on hangovers we noticed a very appealing remedy – bacon sandwiches!
Theory: It is the hangover cure for many — its smell and taste often prove irresistible. Tradition has it that the bread soaks up the alcohol.
Hangover rating: 5/5 A recent study at Newcastle University’s Center for Life confirmed that a bacon sandwich can indeed provide relief. “Bread doesn’t soak up alcohol but is high in carbohydrates that boost blood-sugar levels and speed up the metabolism, helping to get rid of alcohol quickly,” says researcher Elin Roberts. “Bingeing on alcohol depletes brain neurotransmitters but bacon, which is rich in protein, contains amino acids that top these up and make you feel better.”
We know have scientific support for the notion that those late night, or morning after, breakfast feasts are actualy good for you (sort of). That’s good enough for us.
