Wine expert heralds eggs as a quick hangover cure

We all know the dreaded feeling that comes the morning after a big night, but one expert has claimed that something as simple as eating eggs can help cure a hangover.

Wine expert heralds eggs as a quick hangover cure

Callum Dooley, managing director of specialist wine storage company Elite Wine Refrigeration, has revealed his theory for how to quickly cure a hangover, as reported by Leicestershire Live.

And with work Christmas parties and the Qatar World Cup all heading our direction this winter, Dooley’s tip may come in very handy.

Leicestershire Live quoted Dooley as saying: “Wine and other alcoholic beverages cause hangovers by dehydrating the body and disrupting sleep quality. Alcohol is a toxin so our bodies go into overdrive to flush it out.

“But there are different approaches to drinking wine which can help you avoid feeling sensitive the next day.”

Stomach acids play a large part in how you feel the morning after a heavy drinking session, so taking care of your digestive system is an important step to feeling better the next day.

Dooley said: “Make sure you eat a healthy meal to give your body a boost before having alcohol. Wine can cause your blood sugar levels to spike, so avoid eating sugary foods before, during and after drinking.

“Eggs contain amino acids which can help break down acetaldehyde when you’re hungover. Eggs also carry helpful nutrients and minerals, and are gentle on your stomach.”

Acetaldehyde is a chemical compound which occurs when the body breaks down alcohol. It can be harmful, so eating eggs to break down the compound will help the body recover faster.
