From the beginning of time when people started drinking alcoholic beverages, people have been trying to come up with the almighty cure for the hangover.
Sadly, many have failed. Well, today, you will learn 5 really weird hangover cures that may just be crazy enough to work!
Blowfish For Hangover
Many swears by these magical pills to cure the hangover problems. These pills are FDA approved and you can buy them at your local pharmacy, CVS, Walgreens, EBAY, and AMAZON.

It’s a well-known truism that pregnancy causes intense, left-field food cravings, and pickles are king among them. But think about it for a moment—the symptoms of early pregnancy (nausea, bloating and the feeling like your equilibrium is a bit off) sound an awful lot like a hangover.

A South Korean research team recently released a study citing, in short, that hangovers are caused by an inflammatory response in the body’s nervous system. South Korea also consumes the most hard liquor per capita in the world, so we understand the national interest in the topic of hangovers.
Many people swear by a pre-bed aspirin and glass of water as a pre-emptive hangover cure, but be careful: mixing this with alcohol can cause damage to your stomach lining and put even more stress on your liver.

Science has shown that your hangover peaks roughly 12 hours after you start drinking (around the time your BAC returns to zero). This might explain why cultures all over the world include a little hair of the dog that bit you in their hangover cures. Our favorite? The Bloody Mary, of course.
