Drinking milk, eating bread, water before bed; the list of hangover prevention methods is extensive.

Researchers discovered asparagus contains certain amino acids and minerals, which can guard the liver cells against toxins, and ultimately relieve the unpleasant side effects often associated with drinking alcohol.
