“Our study has found that evidence on these hangover remedies is of very low quality and there is a need to provide more rigorous assessment,” said lead author Dr. Emmert Roberts, a clinical research fellow at King’s College London.
Some of the studies did show statistically significant improvements in hangover symptoms. But researchers said the quality of the evidence was low, usually because of limitations in study methods or imprecise measures.
The reviewed studies typically said little about the nature and timing of the alcohol challenge and had considerable differences in the types of alcohol given or whether they were given with food. Eight studies only included men.
No two studies reported on the same hangover remedy. None of the results had been independently replicated.
They concluded that future studies should be more rigorous in their methods, using validated scales to assess symptoms, and include both men and women.
