Tokyo and other areas of Japan are known for their busy nightlife. Filled with clubs and bars, Japan is certainly a place where one can enjoy a number of cocktails. Japan may just be the best place to do this, too. This is because Japanese hangover cures can be found in just about every pharmacy and corner store. These cures are usually drinks that will combat the symptoms of a hangover because they contain one powerful ingredient: turmeric. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that can greatly help ease the symptoms of a hangover. Below are some of the drinks most popular for helping hangovers in Japan.
Ukon no Chikara
Ukon no Chikara is not only the most popular hangover cure in Japan, but it’s also the original. It contains a blend of turmeric and B vitamins that can help quell a nasty hangover and get a person feeling better. It is slightly thick, and its sweet taste is a mixture of orange and ginger. It is available online for those that don’t live in Japan but still want to get some relief. Recently, Ukon no Chikara has also released several different flavors. These tend to mask the turmeric taste, although the texture is still quite thick.
Although the name may suggest that this drink is going to taste like the liver many people grew up eating, it doesn’t. In fact, the taste is quite sweet, similar to oranges or peaches. It contains:
- liver extract
- Vitamin B
Liver Plus is targeted towards frequent and heavy drinkers.
This drink is also said to be an effective Japanese hangover cure. It also contains Ukon and turmeric, but it has a very strong and, to some, unpleasant taste. The flavor is a mixture of Chinese medicine and black licorice. Those that can stand up to the taste say this drink works very well. Unfortunately, the taste is so off-putting to some that using this cure is simply not possible.
Also known as Hyper, Heparize W also has the same liver extract in it as Liver Plus. It also contains ginger extract and turmeric, although much less than others on the market. Due to this, many find that it tastes better, but that it may also not work as effectively as other Japanese hangover cures on the market.
