A pill that claims prevent hangovers and leave users feeling fresh after a night fo drinking has gone on sale today in the UK.

Called ‘Myrkl’, the drug was first developed in 1990 by a Scandinavian pharmaceutical company but has finally been perfected after 30 years of research and development the company claims.

Two tablets must be taken 30 minutes before drinking as the supplement will continue to break down alcohol in the body for up to 12 hours.

In research conducted by the manufacturer alongside Swedish pharmaceutical firm De faire Medical and the Pfützner Science & Health Institute, it was found that the tablets reduced alcohol concentration in the blood by half within 30 minutes of having a drink. This rose to 70% after an hour.

Håkan Magnusson, the company’s CEO, 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 ground-breaking 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,”

“While Myrkl is in no way designed as an excuse to drink beyond NHS guidelines, nor does it stop you getting drunk, we are really convinced Myrkl is a game-changing product for those regular moderate drinkers.”

Myrkl is sold for £30 per packet of 30 capsules and is exclusively available online on the Myrkl website.
