Scientists have found a new cure for pesky morning hangovers

10 Weird Hangover 'Cures'

While we already know that chugging a bottle of water before heading to bed gives you about a 99 percent chance of avoiding a morning hangover, Australian scientists have just come out with yet another preventative remedy to ensure that we enjoy our nights out without paying for them the next day.

Australian scientists at CSIRO have discovered that Asian pears can prevent hangovers. By consuming pears or drinking pear juice before consuming alcohol, people can drastically reduce hangover symptoms including memory loss and concentration problems.

As of now, the CSIRO researches have only tested Asian pears that are commonly used to prevent hangovers in the far east. They plan to test western pears next.

The researchers believe that pear juice helps to metabolism alcohol in the blood. Research director at CSIRO, Manny Noakes, said:

"Reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption."

It must be noted that this newly discovered remedy only works if you drink pear juice before consuming alcohol. Do not drink pear juice when you're already drunk and expect to prevent a morning hangover!

Next time you're getting dolled up for a night on the town, throw back that 220 ml of Asian pear juice before you start throwing back shots. Your stomach, head, and potential drunk text victims will thank you.
