A new hangover pill that could help prevent you having a sore head in the morning has gone on sale today for £1. 

The 'ground-breaking' new hangover remedy promises to 'rapidly break down alcohol' to help you avoid suffering from a headache and nausea the morning after.

Myrkl is a pre-drinking supplement which classes itself as 'the first product in history to break down alcohol effectively'.

The food supplement, which is both 100 percent natural and vegan, will set you back £30 for a pack of 30 pills, with each pill coming in at a very affordable £1 a pop.

Drinkers simply take two pills before drinking, either at least one hour before beginning to drink alcohol, or any time up to 12 hours before a party.

The product then breaks down up to 70 percent of alcohol within just over 60 minutes, with the product also claiming to boost users’ immune systems and energy levels thanks to B12.

Despite only just landing on the market now, the game-changer was actually invented in 1990 by scientist Johan de Faire, having now been 'perfected [with] over 30 years of research and design'.

However, it’s worth mentioning that the pills don’t give party-goers a free pass in binge-drinking or abandoning the NHS guidelines, which advise men and women not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis, and to spread drinking over three or more days if you regularly drink this many units a week.

The Myrkl website also warns users on excessive alcohol consumption: “MYRKL helps break down alcohol fast before it reaches the liver, it is not suited and aimed to alleviate the impact of excessive alcohol consumption. 

“MYRKL must never be an excuse to drink more alcohol and you should always limit your alcohol consumption within the government guidelines.” 

Håkan Magnusson, chief executive officer at Myrkl, previously said the product would help people feel 'their best' the next day, and that the company was excited for Brits to give it a try.

Håkan said: “Marking the first time in history that a consumer product is demonstrated to effectively and rapidly break down alcohol, we are very excited to be launching this groundbreaking product in the UK and in most European markets.

“Moderate social drinking is a huge part of British culture, with the majority of British people heading out each week to enjoy a few drinks together.  

“Myrkl's purpose is therefore to help those regular moderate drinkers to wake up feeling their best the next day, whether they're a busy working professional, young parents, or seniors who want to maintain an active social life.” 

Håkan also added: “The independent clinical trials prove just how powerful this product is at breaking down alcohol. 

“Whilst Myrkl is in no way designed as an excuse to drink beyond NHS guidelines, we are really convinced that Myrkl is a game-changing product for those regular moderate drinkers, and we can't wait for the British public to try it out.”
