I’d never heard that, although I’ve heard miso soup (the stronger aka miso), can be beneficial after a night of over imbibing. Japanese businessmen, after work, will generally grab a snack, like yakitori, do their serious drinking at a club, and at the end of night its gyoza and ramen with plenty of garlic, or sushi, followed by the soothing soup.
