Prickly pears can prevent hangovers

WASHINGTON: Researchers in America have found that dietary supplements containing extracts of pear cactus, before consuming alcohol, can reduce hangover symptoms in individuals.

According to the article published in 'The Archives of Internal Medicine', alcohol hangovers can be reduced by intake of Opuntia ficus indica (OFI), an extract from the skin of the prickly pear fruit.

The researchers, Jeff Wiese of Tulane University, New Orleans, and his colleagues gave either OFI or placebo to 55 young participants, followed by dinner after one hour that comprised cheeseburger, fries and soda. Then after four hours the participants were asked to choose a single type of alcohol from vodka, gin, rum, bourbon, scotch, and tequila.

The researchers found that three of the nine symptoms of hangover, nausea, dry mouth, and loss of appetite, were significantly reduced after taking OFI.

Moreover, the average performance for well-being was better among individuals who took OFI than those who took placebo.

The researchers also found that levels of C-reactive protein were strongly associated with hangover severity, and C-reactive protein levels were 40 percent higher in volunteers who took placebo compared with OFI.

I agree, both should be legal... was just trying to point out how backwards it is that we outlaw the safe substance and legalize the dangerous one.
