Click to Enlarge

According to European researchers, eating strawberries before drinking alcohol can help prevent damage to your stomach’s mucas membrane:

It’s due to the berries’ antioxidant properties and anthocyans, as well as the antioxidant defenses and enzymes they cause the body to release. The study found that eating lots of strawberries can also help prevent gastric illnesses, and slow down the formation of stomach ulcers.

The study noted that mucas membrane damage isn’t limited to just alcohol consumption, as it can also be caused by viral infections, medications such as aspirin, or medication used to treat against the Helicobacter pylori bacteria.
