In this video we hear about all of the regular hangover cures, sports drinks, exercise, drinking plenty of water, etc. But we also hear about another hangover cure that has been only cited a few times, the OFI Prickly Pair Cactus hangover cure. This hangover cure was proven in a study to relieve hangover symptoms. According to NewScientist.com, “An extract of prickly pear cactus could herald help for hangovers, quelling some of the wretched symptoms that strike the morning after a night out.
Taking a capsule of the extract before a night of drinking and partying significantly reduced some of the symptoms of a hangover in young adults, compared with a placebo, showed a study by US scientists. The extract produced statistically significant improvements in the nausea, lack of appetite and dry mouth afflicting the volunteers the morning after they had spent four hours swigging spirits. The overall assessment of hangover severity, based on nine symptoms, was reduced by nearly a fifth, but this result was not statistically significant.”
So as we can see the OFI Prickly Pair cactus hangover cure seems to work to a degree, however, it is not the magic hangover cure everyone is looking for. There has been much stronger evidence supporting the orange juice and egg hangover cure and the vitamin water hangover cure.
