Readers Digest found the worst of the worst if you're fighting off a hangover this summer... we go around the world for hangover cures! Would you ever try:
A glass of juice from either sour pickles or sauerkraut. A fav' in Poland to help quell headaches and alleviate discomfort. It seems like it would add a whole new level of discomfort!
Umeboshi. The go-to hangover cure in Japan. Umboshi is salty pickled plums which supposedly improve liver function and help aid in digestion (by what, clearing it all out quickly?).
Milk Thistle. The Brits love this. Several studies have proven that taking this pill erases any discomfort.
Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Yes, the Canadians turn to ginger ale to settle an upset stomach. The most likely help for a hangover, ginger, is missing from the ingredients, though.
The Bloody Mary! God Bless the USA! This is our hangover cure. The tomato juice contains high concentrations of lycopene and celery has restorative vitamins that help ease the pain. Oh, and then there's the liquor. Party on!
What hangover cure to you swear by?
