New Year's Eve is a time for celebrating the coming of the new year. Some people however, consume too much alcohol and suffer from alcohol hangover. A study in the Journal of Food Science indicates that asparagus extract may help to reduce the symptoms of alcohol hangover. The study found that the amino acids and minerals in asparagus also protect liver cells from toxins resulting from excess alcohol consumption. Alcohol hangover is characterized by various symptoms including headache, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, sensitivity to light and sound, anxiety and irritability.

According to researcher B.Y. Kim, "The amino acid and mineral contents were found to be much higher in the leaves than the shoots. Cellular toxicities were significantly alleviated in response to treatment with the extracts of asparagus leaves and shoots." The researchers contend that asparagus can be an alcohol hangover remedy as well as a protective agent against alcohol liver cell damage.
