If you got drunk on New Year’s Eve and then experienced a hangover, you’ve probably decided that you never want to go through that again. To help you avoid it next time, we bring you a trick, a cheap method that recently went viral on social media and will cost you only 50 cents.

Content creator and makeup artist Chloe Ellen shared a video on TikTok of herself chewing on a cucumber before going out. Link >

“Eat half a cucumber before you start drinking and the other half before bed and thank me later,” she wrote in the text above the video.

According to Chloe, the trick is a “lifesaver,” and she is not the only person swearing by it, as reported by The Sun.

Kerry Denevan is also impressed with the hangover trick, although she eats the whole cucumber, not taking any risks.

“Eat a cucumber before going out if you don’t want to be hungover,” she said.

But does the trick really work? A doctor has revealed that it might not be such a bad idea.

Cucumber (Latin: Cucumis sativus) belongs to the same plant family as pumpkin, zucchini, melon, and watermelon. From a scientific standpoint, it falls under the category of fruit like tomatoes, but in everyday language, it is referred to as a vegetable.

Cucumber cultivation involves two types of fruits.

These are salad cucumbers intended for fresh consumption and pickling cucumbers grown for the pickling process. Salad cucumbers are larger with thicker skin, while pickling cucumbers are smaller with thinner skin, and both types offer equal benefits.

Dr. Janine Bowring says, “Did you know that an incredible benefit of fresh cucumbers is that you can use them to prevent a hangover?” One of the advantages of eating cucumbers is that they are rich in B vitamins, as well as calcium.

Consuming one before or after enjoying alcohol could help balance your nutrients, but only to a certain extent.

Other social media users have also chimed in, saying they are fans of the cucumber trick.

“Yes, I always do that, and it really works,” wrote one.

“That’s clever,” added another.

And a third said, “It makes sense if you think about it.”
