Studies Suggest Korean Pear Juice Can Prevent Hangovers
Is this really true? :o If it is true,, then I need this for my weekend :D According to thestudyconducted by Australian researchers (and shout out to the Aussies for researching hangover cures) at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CISRO), subjects who consumed around one cup of Korean pear juice before drinking alcohol had fewer and/or diminished hangover symptoms the following day. Of all the hangover symptoms (and there are many), the greatest improvement was seen in the subjects' ability to concentrate. Korean pear juice also has anti-inflammatory agents, which will serve in relieving that unbelievably stiff headache. Researchers haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact reasoning behind the Korean pear juice phenomenon just yet. However, according to professor Manny Noakes, lead scientist of the study, Korean pear juice contains enzymes that are necessary for speeding up alcohol metabolism and slightly inhibiting alcohol absorption. In other words, understanding science and using it to my benefit would actually make my head feel better, not worse, as it did throughout my early schooling career. Let's drink pear-juice before drinking!!!
