4 Weird Food Cures
I’ve been on a health kick for the past eight or nine months and I’m signed up for a bunch of “healthy” newsletters via email. Today’s email was on weird food cures and a couple of them caught my attention – including eating asparagus to prevent a hangover!
Eat asparagus to cure a hangover:
Asparagus contains enzymes that breaks down alcohol. Eat some before a night of heavy drinking to prevent a hangover – or even eating some the day after can help relieve the symptoms of a hangover!
Prevent kidney stones with lemonade:
Lemon juice has high levels of citrate. Citrate helps dissolve any calcium deposits that will eventually turn into kidney stones!
Hold off a cold with yogurt:
Yogurt contains good bacteria that can increase your immune system. In fact, those good bacteria have been associated with a 42% lower risk for getting upper respiratory infections like colds!
Beef liver can help with a headache:
Beef liver is a good source of the B vitamin riboflavin, which helps reduce the frequency of migraine headaches.
