Recent research from Australia’s CSIRO revealed that 200 mL of Asian pear juice can reduce the side effects of drinking by up to 20%. Having pear before you drink can speed up your body’s ability to flush it out later, and may also inhibit alcohol getting into your bloodstream in the first place.
“Believe it or not, there are effects that pears may have on the amount of blood alcohol after an alcoholic drink,” lead researcher Professor Manny Noakes told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The study also found that pears can also lower cholesterol and reduce constipation and inflammation.
You can find pear juice in specialty stores, but you’ll likely do just as well with the fruit itself.Back to top
