Scientists Say This Will Prevent Hangovers

Anyone who has experienced a hangover knows that they are not fun by any means. There are a bunch of hangover cures that people try in order to relieve the pain. For instance, some people swear drinking more alcohol or eating greasy food will diminish a hangover. Do those really work, though? Up until now there has been no scientific proof that these methods relieve a hangover.

A scientific agency for research in Australia called the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization thinks they might have found the solution: pear juice. The scientists say that if you drink pear juice before consumption of alcohol you will experience a less severe hangover.

Professor Manny Noakes, the lead researcher on the project, says, “It appears that the factors in Korean pears act on the key enzymes involved in alcohol metabolism, alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) to speed up alcohol metabolism and elimination or inhibition of alcohol absorption. In particular, reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption.” Noakes specifies that Korean (or Asian) pears were tested in this study and not Western pear varieties, which have yet to be tested.

She also stated that hangover severity was “was significantly reduced in the Korean pear group compared to those having a placebo drink, with the most pronounced effect seen on the specific symptom of ‘trouble concentrating’.”

Try it the next time you go out and see if it works!
