It's something to do with protein getting broken down into amino acids in your body. Appaz amino acids are used to build something called neurotransmitters (brain signals???) which are screwed up by alcohol.
So with that in mind, and the fact I had four (large) glasses of wine last night AND the fact I have to work today, dippy eggs for brunch was the obvious choice.
The internet didn't say anything about the benefits of eating cupcakes after you've eaten said eggs to cure said hangover, but this is all in the name of research you see.
