For: The lazy Sunday hangover.
Does it work: During a hangover, “the body is looking for amino acids, water, vitamins and minerals to essentially help flush out your system,” says New York Nutritionist Stephanie Middleberg. Miso has water to hydrate, sodium to help you retain water, and as a fermented food, a lot of healthy bacteria to help with your digestion.
OK SURE, THE ONLY PROBLEM IS, WHERE THE HELL DO YOU GET IT AT THIS MISERABLE MOMENT WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I WANT TO EAT THIS RIGHT NOW.
For: The “I'll try anything” hangover.
Does it work: The salt in the brine is good for rehydration and the vinegar allegedly helps with digestion.
FINE OK BUT EEEEEW.
