Drinking alcohol could have been a really fun activity if it weren’t for the hangover that follows it. People have been on an unending quest to find a cure for it and, now, a team of researchers from UCLA made a great discovery. They have created a hangover pill that seems to take away all those unpleasant symptoms.
The hangover pill contains natural enzymes that are found in the liver
Many people enjoy drinking alcohol, but not all of them know how they should consume it. If you drink too much, then you start experiencing hangovers, namely nausea, headaches, dizziness, and an overall bad state. Usually, they disappear in a few hours, but some of them might be really severe and last up to a day.
Therefore, researchers decided to find a way to develop a hangover pill. This shouldn’t only let people drink as much as they like without side effects. Many people end up in the hospital after they suffer alcohol poisoning, so this pill is necessary to make it safer for people to consume alcohol.
The hangover pill developed by the researchers contained natural enzymes. These chemicals occur naturally in the liver, so adding some extra enzymes should help it process the alcohol a lot more quickly and effectively. This means that it can combat the effects of hangover and, more importantly, prevent a person from suffering alcohol poisoning.
The pill reduced the alcohol concentration in mouse blood in a matter of hours
Researchers tested the hangover pill on mice after they had them consume alcohol. Researchers coated the enzymes with some material approved by the FDA and then administered them to the mice. In four hours, they saw how the alcohol levels in their blood went down 45 percent. Moreover, the levels of toxic acetaldehyde were lower as well, so the pill makes alcohol consumption a lot safer.
While a hangover pill sounds great, researchers still have some more research to do until they can use such a method. They have to perform some tests on humans, so they would make sure it has no adverse effects and works 100 percent against hangovers.
