Hangovers, we’ve all had one (or many). The unfortunate but all too common consequence of a night of too much fun. The throbbing headache, queasy stomach, and overall feeling of blergh can make even the most dedicated partygoer vow never to touch alcohol again. In the search for a miracle cure, people from different parts of the world have developed their own weird and wonderful remedies to alleviate the pain. Let’s explore some of these fascinating hangover cures from around the world.

In Japan, a traditional hangover remedy involves consuming umeboshi plums.

Japan – Umeboshi Plums

In Japan, a traditional hangover remedy involves consuming umeboshi plums. These pickled plums are known for their sour and salty flavor, and they are believed to help combat the effects of a hangover. The theory is that the acidity of the plums helps balance the body’s pH levels and aids in digestion, which can alleviate some hangover symptoms.

In Mexico, a hearty bowl of menudo is a popular choice for curing a hangover.

In Mexico, a hearty bowl of menudo is a popular choice for curing a hangover. This spicy soup is made from tripe (cow’s stomach) and hominy in a chili-based broth. The spices and warmth of the soup are thought to promote sweating and, in turn, help the body detoxify and recover from a night of excessive drinking.

South Koreans turn to haejangguk, or "hangover soup," as their go-to hangover remedy.

In Mongolia, they have an unusual remedy called airag, which is fermented mare’s milk. While it might not be the most appetising option for everyone, it’s rich in probiotics and nutrients that can help soothe a hangover and improve overall digestion.

United States – Greasy Breakfast

In the United States, a hearty and greasy breakfast is often favoured as a hangover cure. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast are commonly on the menu. The idea here is that the fat in the food can help absorb some of the alcohol and ease nausea.
