If you’re like us, you’ve probably tried every ‘hangover remedy’ under the sun. From the after-night-out-kebab, to a trusty bottle of Gatorade and the good ol’ big greasy breakfast. And nothing really works.
Until now. The CSIRO, Australia’s peak science body, has done the hard work for you and come up with a handy solution to your hangover woes.
Apparently, all you have to do is drink 220ml of pear juice. Yes, it turns out the humble pear is the hero of this story.
According to the CSIRO, they lower blood alcohol levels and speed up the rate your body metabolises alcohol.
Pears, particularly the Korean kind, get to work on the enzymes involved in metabolosing alcohol – alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) – according to the lead researcher Manny Noakes.
