The hangover cure that actually works!
It seems that scientists have actually found a real proven cure for a hangover, and It’s not a greasy fry up!
Scientists at CSIRO have found that if you consume pears before drinking, it can considerably help fight the symptoms of a hangover including having trouble concentrating.
Manny Noakes, research director at CSIRO says, ‘Reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption. Overall hangover severity, as measured by a 14 item hangover symptom scale, was significantly reduced in the pear group compared to those having a placebo drink, with the most pronounced effect seen on the specific symptom of ‘trouble concentrating’.
However, if you’re already in the hangover stage then it may be too late! The results show that the consumption of pear juice only works if you consume BEFORE the alcohol and probably won’t work after.
As well as reducing hangover symptoms, the pear juice can also lower blood alcohol levels apparently.
The research was based around pear juice, however the researchers believe consuming pears would have the same effect so you might want to start stocking up now.
