This is Japan's Hot and Clammy Answer to Hangovers

If many failed drinking experiments later you still haven’t nailed that speedy go-to hangover cure, help might be at hand in the form of this new hot canned drinkable soup. 

Japanese brand Nagatanien claim to have arrived at “the ultimate hangover cure” with this tin of hot miso soup. Whilst the healing qualities of a good soup or broth might be nothing new, this is a soup that packs a fishy punch because every can contains 70 clams.

Even if the idea of sitting down and tackling 70 clams doesn't appeal to the ‘remorseful, morning after you’, what will attract are the magical properties of the amino acid 'orthine' contained within the clams. "When linked to too much alcohol it means they reduce stress level, prevent fatigue and help improve the quality of sleep." According to rocketnews24. Apparently it's a fact that's been known and practiced for centuries by the Japanese.

Orthine actually assists in detoxification and can help contribute towards increased liver health.  Ideally drunk at the end of the evening of excess and slept on, the orthine should work it's magic during the night enabling you to leap out of bed headache free in the morning.

The drink is currently sold from vending machines and convenience stores in Japan for 121 yen, roughly US$1.

So next time you feel the effect of last night's over indulgence and a can of 70 clam hot soup isn't to hand. Why not try cooking up a Japanese seafood soup, or some spaghetti with clams?

Not convinced? there are weirder ways to cure a hangover, like eyeballs in tomato juice or take some chef advice on best tips for a hangover cure.
