Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Hangover pill 

Could the pain from last night’s overindulgence be a thing of the past? In May, news broke that a chemical engineer and his team are developing a hangover pill that will allow the body to process alcohol at a faster rate.

Having tested the pill on mice, it was found to reduce the blood alcohol level by 45% in just four hours.

Levels of acetaldehyde – a chemic compound produced during the metabolisation of alcohol which causes headaches, vomiting and blushing after drinking – were also found to be “extremely low”.

While avoiding that splitting headache and next day nausea is a bonus, the pill has a serious message too.

Professor Lu stated that the pill is “something all college students would appreciate” but that it also prevents the possibility of alcohol poisoning and “protects the liver from alcohol-associated stress and damage”.
