Good news for those of us who like to go out for a few quiet drinks on a Monday night that turns into seventeen cocktails!
Actual scientists have figured out that if you drink pear juice before you go out, it'll help lower the booze levels in your blood and keep your hangover away.
Scientists found that 200ml of pear juice "significantly reduced" hangover symptoms, and hugely helped "trouble concentrating." Is this the end of sitting in work meetings pretending to hear what everyone says but really singing The Little Mermaid in your head and fantasising about a nap?
"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," professor Manny Noakes, who led the study, said in a statement.
"In particular, reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption."
The findings were produced by CSIRO, Australia's national science agency. Well done to them.
