Is there a miracle cure to a hangover?
There is no one proven cure to a hangover. Still, there are plenty of remedies available that may help soften the blow of the symptoms experienced.

The best remedies share a common base
When you eat salty, fatty, or pickled foods, you are also consuming a lot of sodium. Sodium has been given a bad name over the past 50 years of mainstream society. Treated as the villain (along with fats – see more on the truth about fats here) of essential nutrients. Sodium’s bad rap is due to years of skewed science and misinformation – much of which can be found online and social media. However, there is a wave of change happening in the scientific world when it comes to sodium consumption:
- The myth of sodium intake causing high blood pressure has been debunked
