9 Weird Hangover Remedies That Actually Work

February 18, 2022

It’s TGIF and we know a lot of you drunkards out there are going to be downing bottles of alcohol tonight like you have spare livers kept aside somewhere.

Tomorrow you’ll wake up with the worst headache, and you’ll tell yourself you’ll never drink again. We both know that’s a lie; it’s the hangover talking. We understand that hangovers are from the pit of hell, and that’s why these remedies — However weird they seem — may help you recover.

Disclaimer: This isn’t medical advice in anyway.

1. Raw eggs and orange juice

This is a top-tier combo. The raw egg contains chemicals that will help restore functions to your body, and the orange juice has Vitamin C, which helps revitalise your body. Plus, the orange juice cancels out the taste of the raw egg.

2. Garri and coke 

Do you want your hangover to go away or not? So do yourself a favour and pour half a bottle of coke into a bowl of garri and drink it like you’d drink normal garri and water. The coke is to give you energy, while the garri is to soak up all the alcohol. 

3. Agbo jedi jedi

If you don’t already know, Nigerians use agbo jedi to cure every single disease on this planet. So if it can cure cancer, liver disease, stroke, heart disease, what’s now ordinary hangover?

4. Sardines

Yes, just sardines. The oil, fish and salt work together to settle your stomach. Don’t ask us questions, just do it.

5. Indomie and ketchup 

First of all, you’re welcome, because this one is tried and tested, so take our word for it. 

6. Igbeaux

Because highness >>>> hangover.

7. Alcohol

This is most likely the last thing you want to hear, but the only way to get over a hangover is to drink again. But this time, the type of alcohol you need to drink is the one that comes in a sachet: the kind that only roadside sellers have. Ask for Chelsea. This type of alcohol will burn the hangover right out of your system. 

8. Eba and Okra 

One way to get over a hangover is by eating heavy food. And what’s heavier than eba? By the time you finish eating the eba, sleep will slap you so hard, you’ll forget about any hangover. We chose okra soup so that the okra would draw out the alcohol in your body. Get it? Draw? If you don’t get it, forget about it. 

9. Sex 

If you’re having throbbing hangover headaches, sex is a great remedy for that. Having sex releases a hormone that is thought to help control pain. You’ll feel more relaxed and might eventually get some restful sleep.
