    After a month of Christmas parties, cosy nights in the pub and a generous helping of mulled wine in front of the Harry Potter films, you’re probably feeling pretty tired and counting down the days to Dry January.

    But what if we told you there was a way to drink without feeling ropey the next day?

    According to The Independent, experts agree that there’s one very simple way to avoid a hangover after a few too many Proseccos. Great news for anyone who is partying their way through to the end of December.

    Researchers found that the effects of a hangover were ‘significantly reduced’ by drinking Korean pear juice – before starting on alcoholic beverages.

    The study found that drinking 200ml of pear juice before your night out will help with the symptoms of overdoing it with the booze.

    A statement from Professor Manny Noakes, who led the study, reads: ‘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.

    ‘In particular, reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption.’
