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

However, new research suggests that tucking into a few asparagus shoots before a big night out may be all that is required.

According to research by the Institute of Medical Science, and Jeju National University in South Korea, amino acids and minerals found in the vegetable may alleviate hangover symptoms and protect liver cells against toxins.

As part of the study, which was published in the Journal of Food Science, researchers analysed the components of young asparagus shoots and leaves and compared their biochemical effects on human, and rat, liver cells.
