The humble beetroot is possessed of wonderful antioxidants called betalains which may help to prevent alcohol related liver damage. It probably won't help to ameliorate an existing hangover but looking after your liver health might help to mitigate future ones (although not as much as avoiding alcohol in the first place though obviously...)
Got a great recipe for beetroot brownie if anybody is interested!
