Would you completely change your pre-party ritual if all you had to do was eat a pear to prevent a hangover? Yeah… thought so!
According to Metro.co.uk, if you eat a pear before your pre-party, that will cure you from a hangover the next day!
Australian scientists at CSIRO found that consuming pears or pear juice before drinking can dramatically reduce the symptoms of hangovers – in particular, memory loss and trouble concentrating.
The researchers have so far only tested the Asian or Korean pear, commonly used as a hangover cure in the Far East, but plan to widen the test to discover if the same results can be achieved using the Western pear.
The researchers believe the pear juice helped to metabolise alcohol in the blood.
“I should make the point that the effect was demonstrated if you take pear juice before alcohol consumption,” says Manny Noakes, research director at CSIRO.
“Once you have a hangover, there is no evidence that it will do you any good.”
So that’s the key, you must do this before you drink any alcohol and you’ll feel better the next morning! Who’s willing to try this? Tell us what you think, and what your home remedies are for hangovers on Facebook.
