A new anti-hangover supplement has just gone on sale in the UK.

It is marketed by Swedish firm Myrkl as “the pre-drinking pill that works”.

The pill is said to break down up to 70% of alcohol after 60 minutes.

This means that if someone drinks 50ml of 40% spirits, which contains 20ml of pure alcohol, as little as 6ml of the alcohol will enter the bloodstream.

The company that makes this supplement recommends that two pills are taken one to 12 hours before drinking alcohol.
