You know that feeling you get when you’ve had far too many drinks the night before and no matter how much water you drink or how many times you’re sick in the toilet, you cannot shake your hangover?
Yeah, well according to scientists, there may well be a hangover cure that we knew nothing about – and it might just surprise you. Apparently, Berocca, the greasy fry-up and sprite are all about to be put firmly in the shade by none other than the humble pear.
CSIRO, Australia’s national science body claim that the fruit has medicinal attributes and can also lower cholesterol and relieve constipation – but there is a twist.
To stop your hangover, you have to eat the pear, or drink pear juice before you actually start to down the vodkas.
Research director, Manny Noakes claimed:
Believe it or not, there are effects that pears may have on the amount of blood alcohol after an alcoholic drink.Advertisement
I should make the point that the effect was demonstrated if you take pear juice before alcohol consumption. Once you have a hangover, there is no evidence that it will do you any good.
Vodka pear juice anyone?
