New survey evidence that a full English breakfast is the fastest acting hangover cure has been used by the British Egg Information Service to highlight the role that eggs may be playing in the recovery process.
According to the survey, carried out by One Poll on 2,000 British adults, more than a third (38%) of Brits who chose to eat a fry up recovered from their hangover in less than 3 hours, compared to 19% of those who took painkillers and 3% who stayed in bed all day.
“The popularity of eggs amongst those feeling worse for wear after a heavy night could be explained by the high levels of cysteine found in the amino acids contained in eggs,” said egg info. “The survey found that 26% of popular hangover cures rely on a dish that contains egg.
“Eggs are also nature’s multivitamin, offering high-quality protein, B vitamins and vitamin D, which helps fight hangovers and improve alertness.
“The survey also highlighted that Brits should forget the ‘hair of the dog’, staying in bed all day, fresh air or a hot shower – nothing will make them feel better in under three hours than a full English that contains all the hangover-defeating properties of eggs.”
