Nothing screams snake-oil more than ‘hangover cures’. They’ve been around forever, and for the most part they all consist of the same two ingredients; wishful thinking, and B.S. Yet, with that being said, The Hangover Drink has caught our attention.
Started first as a pet project by a group of friends living and working in Silicon Valley, this drink slowly but surely gained traction. After countless iterations, and trips to South Korea for in-depth research, the team finally came up with a formula they’re confident works. Their main ingredient is something called Dihydromyricetin (DHM), a compound that boasts anti-hepatotoxic properties and helps metabolize both alcohol and acetaldehyde. The thinking is that when this ingredient is consumed either during or after your night out at the bar, it will either partially or completely reduce your headaches and nausea. DHM won’t work alone, though. The main ingredient – combined with electrolytes, vitamin C & B complex, and other natural extracts – will lessen the headache and nausea you’d otherwise experience in the morning. And it all comes packaged in a beautifully designed bottle.
