Don’t let the party season leave you feeling scrambled

16/12/2015

Christmas party season is upon us bringing with it festive celebrations and overindulgence. Whilst we all have our own tricks and tips for dealing with the dreaded morning after, British Lion Eggs are letting you in on a fool-proof hangover cure which is more than just an old wives tale – the humble egg.

The key to the success of eggs as a hangover cure lies in the levels of cysteine found in the amino acids they contain, which counteracts the poisonous effects of acetaldehyde, the chemical produced by the body as it metabolises alcohol. Acetaldehyde is responsible for the headaches, nausea and other unpleasant consequences of drinking one glass too many.

Eggs are also nature’s multivitamin, offering you high-quality protein, B vitamins and vitamin D to help fight your hangover and improve alertness.
