1. Pear Juice
If you know you will be drinking later today, a pre-game with pear juice may help prevent the nasty after-effects a night out may bring. Scientists claim that consuming pear juice before consuming alcohol can keep hangovers at bay. Pear juice contains essential enzymes involved in alcohol metabolism, keeping blood-alcohol levels down and reducing hangover symptoms the next day.
Pear juice also has anti-inflammatory effects on the whole body. Some experts say that hangover is a case of low-grade inflammation and that is why it works to reduce hangover symptoms.
