Police Week 2016 – Intox-Detox is Kevlar for the Liver!

cop car

The Intox-Detox team was honored to attend our 2nd National Police Week in Washington DC last weekend. The event combines honoring our nation’s police officers, those serving and those we have lost, with a candle light vigil and some good old fashioned fun in the streets of DC. Police departments from all over the country send representative officers to attend Police Week in our nation’s capitol. Of course that includes toasting a few adult beverages. So, Intox-Detox is a natural fit. And once again we made a splash. The police protect and serve. Intox-Detox protects their livers when they get served at the bar!

It goes without saying that law enforcement professionals have stressful jobs. They work long hours, putting themselves in harm’s way to maintain order and keep the bad guys from threatening our families and our way of life. Some of them end up making the ultimate sacrifice by dying in the line of duty. Before we go any further, our team would like to thank our nation’s police officers for their commitment to and sacrifice for the public good. Without the safety, freedom and justice they fight to preserve, we would not have the privilege of safely enjoying a few drinks out on the town.

Now, that being said, these men and women also know how to party! We rolled out the beer pong table and let them challenge our team to win t-shirts and free Intox-Detox samples. We also put in a little time educating attendees about exactly how Intox-Detox can protect the liver and the whole body from the damaging effects of alcohol. Much like a criminal at large on the streets, alcohol’s metabolite in the liver (known as acetaldehyde) roams the body damaging everything it touches. And it can also give you a nasty hangover. Most of a hangover’s worst symptoms – nausea, vomiting, headache, etc – are attributed to the acetaldehyde chemical.

Intox-Detox works because its two clinically proven ingredients work together to bring the toxins to justice. Setria L-Glutathione “walks the beat” neutralizing the nasty chemical and escorting it to lockup. Japanese Raisin extract helps fortify the liver to break down acetaldehyde and reform it into harmless acetic acid. The end result is a better tomorrow for anyone who enjoys a few drinks. That’s why we came up with the slogan:

Intox-Detox is KEVLAR for the liver!

And if it works for them, it will truly work for anyone.

“For three days we toasted beers and jello shots, played beer pong and got acquainted with our boys and girls in blue. I can honestly say that they are some of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met in all of my travels across America to promote Intox-Detox. We can’t wait for Police Week 2017!” – Andy Bennett, Intox-Detox CEO/Founder

To say thanks to our nation’s cops we are offering a special discount of 50% off Intox-Detox 12-count boxes…

Hangover Bowl 2016 – Your Guide to Surviving Super Bowl Monday

 

How to Win the “Hangover Bowl”

It’s that time of year again – the SUPER BOWL. One of America’s most notorious beer-drinking traditions. And as if out of a sadistic need to punish fun, the Super Bowl always falls on a SUNDAY! So how do we address the misery of Super Bowl Monday? Read on and I’ll give you a few tips for avoiding the big H-bomb (hangover) and offer you a chance to get a free sample of Intox-Detox or purchase a Party Pack at 40% off…

Get the deal now with coupon code “HANGOVERBOWL”

As we all know, Super Bowl 50 pits the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers. The #1 offense against the #1 defense. Two #1 seeds going head to head. Neither likely to back down one iota, both have something to prove. Peyton Manning looks to solidify the legacy of an amazing career and prove he can still hack it on Football’s greatest stage. Will he retire? Meanwhile Cam Newton is still sculpting the statue of his legacy. Will the student become the teacher?

Of course it’s about so much more than two great quarterbacks. It’s about two hungry teams who have fought hard and are about to put everything on the line to become Super Bowl Champs.

For us, we have passionate, obsessed fans on both sides of the ball. It’s too close to call and we wouldn’t even try. You can get all that in the 6 days of pre-game.

Instead, let’s talk about two bitter rivals vying for supremacy inside you, even as you enjoy watching all the hard hits, great plays and (hopefully) entertaining commercials on TV. There’s a gridiron right inside of your body. Both teams are powerful. One team is your LIVER, bound and determined to detox the toxins from that beer, wine, cocktail or whatever libation you enjoy during the Big Game. On the other side of the pigskin is BOOZE. And there’s more than just bragging rights at stake here. Your health and well-being are in jeopardy. And then there’s the most immediate effects – THE HANGOVER. The vast majority of us have to show up to work on Monday. The question is how will you feel when you get there? Like a half-decomposed zombie straight out of The Walking Dead? Or refreshed, focused, heck even excited to greet the day?

Winning Super Bowl Monday

Here’s how you tip the balance in your favor. And no, it has nothing to do with DEFLATING footballs.

  1. Eat for Detox – Try to get some healthy fats like olive oil, avocado – can you say guacamole – and/or fatty fish like salmon. These fats are good for you and they slow down the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream. Include some vegetables, especially greens, like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Eggs, red meat, whey protein, turmeric, garlic and onions also contain glutathione and its precursors – these are potent natural antioxidants to help your body cope with the detox. It also wouldn’t hurt to pop a multivitamin to make sure your body is fully stocked with B vitamins and other nutrients.
  2. Stay Hydrated – This is the easiest one to do, but nobody does it. Grab some water between each alcoholic drink. Chug down some coconut water before bed to begin replacing electrolytes.
  3. Choose Wisely – Avoid the drinks that are your kryptonite. Avoid mixing different kinds of drinks. Avoid sugars like the plague because they make inflammation and hangovers much worse.
  4. Take Intox-Detox – Take 1 pack of Intox-Detox BEFORE you get too far into drinking. Do it immediately prior to your first drink or before your reach your third alcoholic beverage. Intox-Detox contains the only two ingredients proven in human clinical research to both protect your liver from toxins and enhance alcohol detoxification. And no, it won’t keep you from getting a BUZZ. For best results, take another pack before bed.

And that’s it. That is all you need to give TEAM LIVER a leg up on TEAM BOOZE. Your body will thank you on Super Bowl Monday!

Use coupon code “HANGOVERBOWL” (not case sensitive) to save 40% on your Party Pack of Intox-Detox here… All US orders received by Wednesday February 3, 2016 by 3 pm will arrive before Super Bowl Sunday – unless you live in Hawaii or Alaska. Buy Intox-Detox at 40% off here…

The Intox-Detox Free Sample Program is Ending Forever

hangover pill

Why the Intox-Detox Sample Program is Ending

Click to grab your FREE SAMPLE now before it’s too late…

Intox-Detox started as a concept on paper, inspired by the genius of a biochemist and friend of CEO Andy Bennett. A little research led to a collaboration with one of the smartest people developing supplements today, Geoff Palmer of Clean Machine (he has an amazing company with science-based Vegan sports supplements – by the way Intox-Detox is Vegan too!). We knew that formula worked on paper because it was backed by incredible human clinical studies.  But no one involved could have imagined just how amazingly effective the Intox-Detox formula would turn out to be. Our goal was to revolutionize the Alcohol Detox and Recovery industry.

However, as a new company in a market full of pretenders and ineffective products, we knew we had to prove ourselves. That is why we offered Intox-Detox samples to 10,000 people. Sure, we had to charge a $2.50 shipping fee. We are a small family business and we have to keep the lights on. Our vision was that anyone in America could try a sample of Intox-Detox for less than the cost of a beer at any bar. We don’t pull any punches. Anyone unwilling to spend a couple bucks on protecting their liver and alleviating the misery of the morning after drinking alcohol probably wouldn’t be our customer no matter what.

It’s been over a year since we started the free sample program and we have given away close to 20,000 samples across America, way more than our stated goal of 10,000. In the meantime, we’ve been to almost every major city in the country, to music festivals, beer fests, wine tastings, bars, night clubs, the World Series of Beer Pong, Nitro Circus shows, Spring Break and NASCAR races. We even became a sponsor for the #32 Go Green Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race team. We have come a long way. And we have proven ourselves and our amazing product time and time again every where we have gone with customer satisfaction in the 99th percentile.

The next step is a nationwide push into retail locations including convenience stores, gas stations, vitamin and supplement locations, bars, breweries and grocery markets. We are keeping good on our promise to our loyal customers so that you can buy Intox-Detox at your corner store or wherever you should choose to shop. We have seen your emails and calls, begging us to come to your local area and we are coming. It has already begun. Please help us do this by educating your local retailers about the product and requesting that they carry Intox-Detox on their shelves.

As always, you get incredible discount pricing by ordering via the website. Most locations in the continental United States receive their Intox-Detox orders within 3-4 business days.  However, we understand that sometimes you have a night out and you need the product now. You might not even know you are going out tonight, but something fun comes up and you don’t want to suffer tomorrow. We get it. This is a product created for responsible alcohol consumers by an Irish family who have tipped a few drinks in our day as well.

BAD NEWS: The free sample program is ending soon.

GOOD NEWS: You have until February 14, 2016 to go here to the Free Sample page and get your Intox-Detox pack mailed to you for only $2.50.

Also, because we love our customers we are extending a new deal  for those who want to try Intox-Detox, but have not yet seen the product in their local stores. For only $4.99, the full price of one serving of the product, we will send you a pack. Bonus: we are covering the shipping. So, if you arrived too late for the free sample deal, head over here and add 1 serving to cart to try Intox-Detox without having to pay any shipping.

Guilt and Hangover-Free Cocktail Recipes

Looking for Guilt and Hangover-Free Cocktail Recipes?

So, summer is over. It happens. The planet goes around the sun and tilts at different angles. Totally out of your control. What you can control is what you drink and how much it damages your body. That’s where Intox-Detox comes in. We created our product to help you have a good time without destroying your body and waking up feeling like a zombie the next day. You’re welcome.

Hangovers suck! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it probably at least a million times more: a hangover is not caused by DEHYDRATION, SUGARS or CONGENERS. These things make hangovers worse. Think gasoline on the fire. Not the fuel that makes the fire of your own personal hell burn the day after a few too many. If you want to learn what exactly causes a hangover and how to fix it, go here.

Today our focus is singular. Here are 6 awesome low-sugar alcoholic libations that can spare your waistline and keep the sugars down, so that you don’t pour to much extra gasoline on the fire. Thanks to Zevia for being awesome and making incredible calorie-free sodas! Don’t forget to take your Intox-Detox!

fall brew recipe with zevia

  1. Fall Brew

For a drink called “Fall Brew” this sure tastes like kissing summer a bittersweet good-bye. Pineapple and cranberry with rum and lemon lime soda rocks. You know the words, so sing… “Captain Jack will get you high tonight, And ake you to your special island…” At 110 calories, you can afford to visit a few of your private archipelagos.

If that Fall Brew recipe makes you feel like another year is in the bag, this next one might just make you feel like a kid again…

shirley temple recipe

2. The Grown Up Shirley Temple

We all have to grow up. It doesn’t mean you have to stop putting cherries in your Sprite. The vodka just makes life a little better, doesn’t it? Fans of the Arrested Development show know that stuff goes bad if you don’t drink it fast, so get to it!

grown up shirley temple recipe

Maybe you want something a little more grownup, but no less sweet and colorful. Try this…

atomic cat recipe

3. Atomic Cat

You don’t need to be an atom-splitting rocket scientist to make this one. With Zevia’s awesome sugar-free tonic water, a little OJ and vodka, you can throw this together in seconds. We’re also a fan of Tropacana’s Trop 50 to further reduce the sugar content. And since it contains orange juice, I think you can even call this drink breakfast! It is the most important meal of the day…

atom cat tonic drink

Like your drinks a little more tart? This drink looks delicious…

cranberry lime tart recipe

4. Cranberry Lime Tart

The recipe below is for a pitcher, so this one might just be your new party favorite. The red cranberries and green limes could make a great seasonal punch for those holiday parties. Both are also full of antioxidants that can help ward off the dreaded holiday party hangover. Highly recommend Just Cranberry or another pure, not-from-concentrate cranberry juice.

sugar free cocktail

Need something a little more “summery”. Just because this next one contains bitters that doesn’t mean it tastes that way…

blood orange G & T

5. Blood Orange G&T

This slight variation on a classic G&T adds orange bitters and fresh blood orange juice. Gin lovers unite! Most of today’s drinkers are strangers to bitters; and that’s a darn shame because they are awesome. I recommend you drop the orange slice in with the blood orange juice and bitters and muddle briefly before adding the gin and tonic water. That will really bring out the flavor of the the oranges.

gin and tonic

Not a gin fan? This next one is highly flexible. It works with almost any liquor of your choosing…

moscow mule recipe

6. Zevia Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule is quickly becoming a new fan favorite everywhere. Sub bourbon for vodka and  you have yourself a Kentucky Mule. Best of all, you save on calories by using half Zevia Ginger Ale and half ginger beer. Barritt’s makes a decent sugar-free ginger beer if you really want to keep the calories low, but it’s not all-natural like Zevia.

moscow mule

So there you have it – 6 awesome low-calorie and low-sugar drinks to get you through the end of the year. Any bartender worth his or her salt will tell you that quality liquors and fresh ingredients are the path to avoiding hangovers.

We agree, with the exception that we know based on the science that even the highest-grade poison is still poison. Any drink can give you a hangover. Drinks with artificial sweeteners and high sugar content can definitely make your hangover much worse.

Avoid all of that noise by taking your Intox-Detox before you party. It contains clinically proven Japanese raisin and Setria L-Glutathione to help to detox, recover and protect your body from the damaging effects of alcohol.

Hangovers Suck! Intox-Detox Works! Take Tonight for a Better Tomorrow

It’s no secret that HANGOVERS SUCK!

That’s why we looked at real science and formulated Intox-Detox to address the #1 cause feeling terrible the morning after drinking. That cause is actually a DEADLY POISON. It’s called acetaldehyde; let’s call it simply ALD for short. It’s thought to be as much as 15 times more deadly than the alcohol itself. Where does this nasty little poison come from?

THE LIVER’S 2-STAGE DETOX PROCESS

Some of it is physically present in alcoholic drinks as a byproduct of fermentation. You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. For the most part our OWN LIVERS are to blame. Don’t get me wrong; your liver is a very important organ. It’s called “the liver”; you need it to LIVE!

The problem is that our livers are pretty STUPID when it comes to alcohol.  Here’s the 2-stage process:

Step 1:  Liver takes something mildly poisonous (alcohol) and turn it into something downright deadly (ALD).

Step 2:  Miraculously we turn that awful stuff into something totally harmless (acetate).

Think in terms of Gremlins. Alcohol is like Mogwai – a lot of fun, but requires a certain amount of responsibility (Don’t get them wet!). ALD is more like Gremlins – they will terrorize the city and eventually try to kill you!

Here read that again…

OUR LIVERS MAKE ALCOHOL INTO THE DEADLY CHEMICAL THAT DAMAGES THE BODY AND GIVES US HANGOVERS! ET TU BRUTE?!?

There’s no good reason why our livers work this way. They just do. And it’s a good thing they do. As inefficient as they may be, if they didn’t work you could literally DROP DEAD from a couple of drinks. Alcohol would be considered a hard street drug like heroin. And people would be dropping like flies left and right.

That’s precisely the reason that certain ethnic groups get skin flushing, headaches or even violently ill with only a couple of drinks. They were born with a mutated form of the enzyme that breaks down the ALD that comes from alcohol. We’re not being racist; it’s just a fact of life. If anything it’s the ALD that doesn’t like certain people. We want nothing but BETTER TOMORROWS for everyone.

On the other hand, people that can naturally “drink you under the table” probably have very high levels of the liver enzymes that help break down alcohol. That’s not always a good thing because they might just be accumulating more ALD at a faster rate.

Then there’s the UNICORNS. For one reason or another these people just don’t seem to get hangovers at all. Some of us are that way when we are young. Even those blessed individuals tend to experience worse hangovers as they age. However, it’s a pretty good bet that people who “never” get hangovers are blessed with healthy amounts of the two important substances that break down ALD.

So what are those two magical substances that help to break down ALD and keep us from feeling like total sh*t the morning after drinking?

1. ALDH2 – just think of this as the liver enzyme responsible for breaking down ALD. If only there were a way to increase the body’s levels of this enzyme. (Hint – Intox-Detox).

2. Glutathione – this is the body’s master antioxidant and a critical co-factor for breaking down ALD. Our bodies make it, but we run out after only a drink or two. Your liver is a tough som’b*tch and it can hang in there for a while. Eventually it just gets too backed up and ALD lingers in your blood stream and around your crucial organs (brain and heart), damaging everything it touches like Gremlins in a skyscraper in New York City. Click here to read a blog post where we went into mad detail about Glutathione…

Basically, you get TRASHED. Literally. And when you wake up, your body is still trying to fight to eliminate all the ALD.

Hmmm. If only you could speed that process up by, oh, I don’t know…like 65%. Imagine what a difference that would make. If by the time you wake up in the morning, your body has turned all of that deadly ALD into something harmless like acetate. You probably wouldn’t have so much of a “hangover”, now would you?

And that’s the genius of Intox-Detox. You take it BEFORE you drink to protect your body and prevent the misery. It’s the only Alcohol Recovery and Detoxification product on the market that contains the 2 SUBSTANCES proven in human clinical trials to speed up the break down of the ALD poison that comes from alcohol.

Check the label of any other product on the market. If it doesn’t contain both a clinical dosage of Japanese raisin and Setria L-Glutathione, it’s a joke. Period. That doesn’t mean other products won’t help at all. It just means they are not as good. And they haven’t done their science homework. Maybe the Gremlins ate it.

Also, remember to check for CLINICAL DOSAGE. Many companies like to quote research studies on an herb like Japanese raisin. However, they wet the Mogwai when it comes to using the right amount of the ingredient. That’s why Intox-Detox uses the full clinical dose that was used in the most impressive human study done on Japanese raisin and it’s effects on ALD metabolism.

It’s not cheap to do things the right way. We invested in our success and your better tomorrows by having the integrity to do things the way they should be done. Sure, we could make a lot more money by cutting the dosage by 1/3, 1/2 or even 1/9 like one company did. Sorry but that just will not cut it. We didn’t start this company just to make money. We wanted to change the world for the better and help people have a great time without damaging their bodies and feeling like crap in the process.

Next time, we are going to talk about how to take Intox-Detox if you are drinking liquor in larger quantities or just sipping drinks by the pool all damn day. Hint: Intox-Detox is all-natural and you can take up to 3 servings per day. Remember, only you can decide what moderation means to you. That is your right. We only stress that you protect your body, respect the safety of others (don’t drink and drive or be a douchebag) and drink responsibly.

Setria L-Glutathione Brings Amazing Science to Intox-Detox

 

hangovers suck intox-detox with setria works

Hangovers Suck! Intox-Detox Works!

When we created Intox-Detox, we really shot for the moon. Who else do you know that has the whiskey stones to take on HANGOVERS with real science?

Some people are happy to shoot for the stars and land in the clouds. We tried to lasso the moon and discovered a whole new universe. An alternate reality where you can enjoy moderate (depending on your definition) amounts of alcohol while protecting your liver and avoiding the misery of the morning after.

Please share this blog post so that more people can experience the amazing effects of Intox-Detox, what our friend Glenn called “sorcery” in his testimonial here

Once people try Intox-Detox, they look at us a little differently. Healthy (and sometimes outright belligerent) skepticism turns into admiration and awe. So…

HOW DID WE DO IT?

The answer is simple; and we’ll let CEO Andy Bennett tell you in his own words:

“We had the courage to take on what seemed to be an unsolvable problem. We had the humility to hire people much smarter than us to ask all the right questions. And we had the wisdom to settle for nothing less than the most expensive and highest quality ingredients on the planet.”

So, today’s post is about one of those ingredients; and it’s called Setria L-Glutathione. We spend a lot of time talking about how amazing Japanese raisin is (read about that here), but today we need to give credit where it’s due. Setria takes our incredible science-backed herbal blend to a whole new level. If you saw them featured on “THE DOCTORS” TV show (watch the video here), you know that Setria is kind of a big deal. What’s even more important to know is that IT REALLY WORKS…

So What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a tri-peptide amino acid, meaning it’s made of three amino acids. From biology class you know that amino acids are the things that make up proteins. And glutathione is one that our body manufactures from the amino acids in our diet. Glutathione is now considered the body’s MASTER ANTIOXIDANT. And it plays a very important role in your health. Glutathione helps with detoxification, anti-aging, neutralizing free radicals and boosting immune function.

It Can Save Your Life!

Perfect example of how important this stuff is – if you are rushed to the ER for alcohol poisoning or Tylenol overdose, the first thing they will do (besides pumping your stomach) is to give you an IV of a substance that increases your body’s Glutathione levels.

Yes, that means Glutathione literally has the power to save your life. No big deal. Here are just a couple of ways it can improve your life and health daily…

How Glutathione Can Save Your Life

  1. Antioxidants – Remember that your body is constantly being attacked by free radicals. Think of these as terrorists roaming around your body looking to cause trouble. Antioxidants neutralize these trouble-makers and keep them from damaging you inside and out. More specifically, Glutathione recycles or recharges other important antioxidants like vitamins C, E and A. Not only does it attack the bad guys by itself, Setria is also like a medic to keep the other allies on the team healthy for the fight.
  2. Body Bouncer – Glutathione is also like a bouncer for your body. It binds in the blood steam to toxins (like acetaldehyde), heavy metals, solvents and pesticides, helping them to be excreted in the urine and bile. It’s no wonder our kidneys, liver, lungs and intestines contain Glutathione. It also protects against the absorption of pollutants from the air and industrial chemicals.
  3. Immune Defender – Glutathione helps to fortify your immune system, making white blood cells and T cells better at killing the bugs that try to invade your body.
  4. Skin Protector – If you want to keep your skin looking young and healthy, you better learn about Glutathione. It helps protect the collagen fibers that keep skin elastic. And it also reduces melanin production, which can help prevent the darkening, spotting and aging of your skin.

In general, higher glutathione levels are associated with longer lifespan, healthier cholesterol levels, blood sugar, blood pressure and body mass index, as well as overall feelings of well-being.

Okay great, it’s really good for you, but let’s talk…

ALCOHOL-SPECIFIC EFFECTS

Booze is a huge source of free radicals and toxins, so let’s take a quick look at how Glutathione helps with that:

  1. The Terminator – Glutathione binds toxins and marks them for removal from the body, specifically the poison that comes from alcohol and is processed in the liver.
  2. Acetaldehyde (ALD) – The science is boring, so we will keep it simple. This is the number one harmful toxin from alcohol. Don’t take our word for it; according to Wikipedia: “Acetaldehyde is more toxic than alcohol and is responsible for many hangover symptoms.”

Your liver has a 2-step process for breaking down alcohol. First, it turns it into the much more harmful ALD mentioned above, which quickly builds up in the body, damaging everything it touches and making you feel awful the next day (HANGOVER). Second, ALD becomes a harmless substance similar to vinegar (acetate). Glutathione is not just helpful, but required for this process.

The problem is that our bodies only produce enough Glutathione to fend off about 2 or 3 drinks worth of ALD. For better or worse, many of us enjoy a few more than a few drinks. So, we run out of glutathione and accumulate too much ALD. Welcome to Hangover City, population you.

Why Setria?

Setria L-Glutathione has been proven to increase blood levels of glutathione by 35% in humans. It’s truly an amazing ingredient because many believed this to be impossible prior to their ground-breaking research.

Intox-Detox didn’t stop there. We added Japanese raisin to the equation to support liver enzyme levels. Now, you have the only two substances on the planet proven in gold standard human clinical trials to protect the body and help avoid the misery of the day after when drinking alcohol. You’re welcome!

Next time, we’ll focus specifically on the many sources of the toxin ACETALDEHYDE – it’s not just alcohol people! Some of them will surprise you.

You may be getting a lot of this specific poison even if you rarely drink and live what you thought was a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s to a BETTER TOMORROW!

Hangover Cure Myths vs. Science – What Really Works?

 

thumbs up to a real hangover cure

Every society since the beginning of time has had a “hangover cure”. One reason for this is that over-consumption of alcohol truly is one of the civilized world’s oldest problems. Here at Intox-Detox, we don’t just use that expression for dramatic effect.

What sets hangovers apart from other world problems like war and starvation is the fact that we truly can’t blame anyone but ourselves. Hangovers are crimes we commit against our bodies. A hangover is personal and it’s different for each of us. You will never know for sure what your friend’s hangover feels like, and vice versa.

The general confusion about hangovers is what actually causes them. Actually, the cause is simple; it’s alcohol. However, the impact of alcohol on the body is complex. There’s a cascade of effects that add up to a hangover. Examples include inflammation, dehydration, free radicals, acetaldehyde buildup and too much acidity in the stomach. Let’s focus on a very specific, so-called “hangover cure” – H20.

The Water

To call dehydration by itself a “hangover” would be highly inaccurate. Remember that hot summer day when you were dehydrated? Did that feel like a hangover? No, because dehydration is merely part of what can go wrong when you drink alcohol. So why would we attempt to mitigate our hangover as if it were just dehydration? That makes no sense.

Water absolutely does help you to feel better. Dehydration causes a bunch of problems that suck. By all means, drink plenty of water. Have a glass between each alcoholic drink. Alcohol is a powerful diuretic; it tricks your body into pumping out much more water than you are taking in. Ever “broke the seal” before?

Drinking H20, Pedialyte or coconut water (electrolytes) helps fix dehydration. However, it does nothing for acetaldehyde poisoning, for example.

You would think we would take a broad scientific approach and address all of the specific effects of consuming alcohol instead of just picking one of the problems.

In the real world, people often try to scam other people and sell them worthless products to make money. The bigger the problem, the bigger the potential to take your money. And the bigger the lie, the harder we all fall. So every other week there’s a new “hangover cure” on the internet. (Last time it was Sprite) It catches our eye because we’ve all been through it; and nothing gets our attention like a cure for our specific pain. So, let’s look at the hangover cure that has recently hit the internet hard.

The Pear

For the last few weeks, the internet has been abuzz with articles and press releases about how Asian pear juice cures hangovers. In fairness, I have not seen the study. From what we can tell, they just gave a bunch of people some pear juice and asked them how they felt the next day. Then they compared them to a placebo group who had something other than pear juice.

This is a great start, but there is much work to be done before we can scream from the mountaintops that a hangover cure has been found. My fear is that the reason they have totally jumped the gun is that it’s just another fad. This is yet another marketing play to take your money.

Is it the Asian pear industry looking to offload inventory or sway a huge percentage of the drinking population to run out and buy up all the pears? Or is it a product that contains pear juice, seeding the market with PR stories to boost sales when it hits the shelves? Either way, it’s a very simple manipulative marketing strategy to move the masses of sheep into the pen where you can be sheered.

The interesting thing about hangovers is that many of the problems are quite easily handled. For dehydration, all you have to do is drink water. Inflammation? Take NSAIDs like aspirin or Advil. I recommend natural anti-inflammatories, but it’s your life. (To learn about alternatives to powerful drugs read this article) Antacids like Maalox or Tums can help with the stomach acidity. Vitamins and antioxidants from supplements or food fight free radicals to help detox and recover. All of these things are cheap and readily available.

The one problem no one addresses is acetaldehyde, which is not easy to deal with. And that’s where Japanese raisin and Intox-Detox come in.

The Thumb

What does a thumb have to do with hangovers? Not much, it stands for a big THUMBS UP for Japanese raisin. Unlike the Asian pear, Japanese raisin has been studied thoroughly in humans and we better understand exactly how it helps to prevent the misery of the morning after drinking. It addresses the acetaldehyde poisoning. More on that in a moment. The “thumb” is actually “thunb”; and it describes the part of the plant from which this incredible supplement comes. Japanese raisin is not a traditional raisin.

Raisins are just shriveled up grapes. Japanese raisin thunb is the stalk of the Hovenia dulcis plant. It has a pleasant, fruity (yet less sweet than raisins) taste. This non-raisin, raisin helps the body eliminate the acetaldehyde poison from alcohol up to 65% faster than normal, according to gold standard human clinical trials. This particular poison, acetaldehyde, is 12 to 15 times more dangerous than alcohol. The longer it lingers in your system, the more damage it does and the worse you will feel the next day.  Not to mention, when taken before drinking, Japanese raisin has liver protective effects.

The science shows that Japanese raisin works. However, Intox-Detox didn’t stop there. We also added Setria, Green Tea and Panax Ginseng (More on these in the next post). Each of these helps to fight acetaldehyde buildup in its own way.

Conclusion

The water, the pear and the thumb can all potentially be helpful. Water is just essential to life; and even more important when you are consuming a diuretic like alcohol. Pears are healthy, containing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. And it seems that preliminary research shows they “might” help with a hangover. Japanese raisin has been proven to help eliminate the poison from alcohol. The science is clear. Try it for yourself and see. Whatever you do, just don’t be a sheep because sheep always get sheered. Look for real science that lasts the test of time.

Intox-Detox Hotter Than a Hoochie-Coochie Down on the Chattahoochee!

hangover supplement and ribs

Best. Ribs. Ever. And they pair well with moonshine and Intox-Detox!

Over the weekend Intox-Detox attended the Chattahoochee River Country Music Festival July 24-26 at the VFW Fairgrounds in Carrolton, Georgia. It was a weekend of country music, barbecue, beer (pong) and camping. And according to CEO Andy Bennett (AB): “We finally learned firsthand just how hot a ‘hoochie -coochie’ really is!”

Intox-Detox finds the beer

It truly was “hotter than a hoochie-coochie”.

The lineup featured Stephen Dennis, Lorrie Morgan, the Kentucky Headhunters, Jesse Keith Whitley, Cowboy Troy, Brian Collins, Corey Smith, JJ Lawhorn, Bubba Sparxxx, The Lacs and Deana Carter.

All of these incredible acts performed well. The Intox-Detox team especially enjoyed Deana Carter, Brian Collins, JJ Lawhorn and Bubba Sparxxx. We even got the chance to grab a quick photo and share some of our amazing product with some of them. Bubba is a Georgia boy, hailing from not too far down the road from the venue. JJ Lawhorn was a standout as well; he’s from AB’s home state of Virginia, from just outside of Richmond, VA. JJ said it best: “Virginia people gotta stick together.” Amen.

When we weren’t accepting beer pong challenges at the booth, we were chowing down on a few racks of Gilbert’s Rib King BBQ. In the process, we discovered that they are local to Southern Florida, the place where the Intox-Detox revolution all began. It goes without saying that the ribs were washed down with some cold beer and a few healthy pulls of moonshine – not without a pack of Intox-Detox of course.  That’s how we do it!

beer pong and Intox-Detox

Intox-Detox always goes well with beer pong!

Friday and Saturday night there were some pretty bad ass after parties with a few of the performers working over time until 3 am to make sure everyone got their fill of great music, dancing and good times.

As usual, Intox-Detox was met with a healthy dose of skepticism, which is fine with us. It just makes it that much more fun to say “I told you so” the next morning. Our team practices what we preach. Yes, we drink, but we always keep it responsible and take Intox-Detox beforehand to prevent the next day’s misery and protect our bodies in the process. How else do you think we could handle partying like rock stars for three days straight in the hot Georgia sun?

I guess “preach” is the wrong word. There’s no sermon and no sales pitch. The product works. Don’t take our word for it. Go here and read some real testimonials. Or visit here and grab a free sample to find out for yourself. There’s nothing to lose. And you’ll know whether it worked in the morning. We don’t pull any punches. We just created an amazing product to deliver the knock out punch to one of the civilized world’s oldest problems – the painful after effects of drinking.

The Heist: A Perfect Night Out Drinking With No Hangover

remedy for hangover

Ever wondered how to get away with the perfect night out drinking? We did. That’s why we created Intox-Detox, to protect your body from the damaging effects of alcohol while helping you to function the next day and not feel like the gum on the bottom of someone’s shoe. We’ll get to the role Intox-Detox has to play in your heist in a moment.

Why do I call it a heist? Ever noticed how going back to the bar you were at the night before is referred to as “returning to the scene of the crime”? Small glasses of alcohol are “shots”. When you take a pee, you are “breaking” the seal. You often hear people say they were “hammered”, “smashed”, “sh*t-faced” and “slaughtered”. Clearly drinking is a pretty destructive activity. We don’t think it has to be that way though.

If we have one flaw, it is too much passion (bordering on obsession) for the science of getting away with the heist. In the spirit of brevity, and for those who don’t want to read the full dissertation, here are the Cliff’s notes of how to combine Intox-Detox with a few simple tricks to wake up feeling okay after an epic night out.

How to Get Away with the “Heist”

  1. Avoid dehydration – plenty of water before and after drinking. The rule of thumb about having a water between each drink is a good one. Replace electrolytes after with coconut water, Gatorade or any other hydration drink of your choosing.
  2. Slow alcohol absorption – eat plenty of healthy fats at the meal PRIOR to drinking, and not after you’re already drunk at the McDonald’s drive thru or hungover the next day.
  3. Eat greens – asparagus, artichoke, spinach, broccoli, etc… Most greens contain compounds that naturally help detox and protect your body (Knock out 2 & 3 by having a steak salad for dinner before going out)
  4. Choose drinks wisely – skip the ones that your body doesn’t like. For example, champagne gives me headaches, so I don’t drink much of it. Pick one drink for the night and stick to it. Don’t go from carbonated beverages (like beer) to liquor because it speeds up absorption and creates the “never sicker” effect
  5. Take natural anti-inflammatories – mitigate the inflammation caused by alcohol intake with supplements/foods like omega-3, turmeric, ginger, boswellia, berries, cherries, etc… Some people take NSAIDs like aspirin or Advil. Avoid Tylenol and/or acetaminophen at all costs – it will damage your liver!
  6. Take Intox-Detox BEFORE drinking – the only approach that provides the two substances needed to eliminate the acetaldehyde poison from your body faster
  7. Get adequate rest – at least 6 to 7 hours of sleep to avoid dragging the next day
  8. Energize wisely – there’s no caffeine in Intox-Detox because the jolt juice is the most popular drug on the planet and is readily available, like pretty much everywhere. Throw a rock and you’ll probably hit a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. (Technically the green tea in Intox-Detox does contain minute amounts of caffeine, equal to about one cup of DECAF coffee)

For those who are in for the long haul and want the more in-depth analysis, read on…

When it comes down to it, what you are actually doing when you drink alcohol is acutely poisoning your body. Luckily for us, our bodies were built with the ability to break down the poison from alcohol, also known as ethanol. If this were not the case, one or two drinks could kill you. Or at the very least, cause you to be violently ill and vomit immediately. That’s exactly what happens with some unfortunate ethnic groups who have a deficient liver enzyme for breaking down the poison. Forgive the brief science lesson, but it’s essential to understand what is happening in your body when you drink. And thus, what you can do to get away with it.

The deficient enzyme in these poor individuals is known as ALDH2. It breaks down a chemical called ALD, or acetaldehyde, which is far more nefarious than the ethanol itself. In fact, some say that ALD is 12 to 15 times more poisonous. And, it accounts for most of the nastier side effects of the “hangover”, for example nausea, headaches and vomiting. A lot of people think that a hangover is just dehydration; that is part of the problem, but it is a significant oversimplification of what is really going on in your body.

Our ability to break down ALD is limited, due to a couple of things that I will revisit in a moment. As the ALD builds up faster than our livers can break it down, it causes all sorts of problems. Acetaldehyde is similar to formaldehyde, another similar and deadly chemical. ALD bounces around and damages tissues of the brain, heart, liver and pretty much anything else it touches. The longer it is in your system the more potential it has for doing damage to your body, and the more terrible you will inevitably feel the next day.

So, to briefly summarize the cumulative issues plaguing your body during a hangover, there is dehydration, cellular inflammation, free radicals, glutamine rebound and ALD buildup (we’ll come back to these and provide specific solutions for each). Some of these issues are easier dealt with than others. Okay, so we know what the problems are; let’s talk about solutions. How exactly do we address these issues to “get away with the crime in progress”? Hint: one of the biggest secrets is planning ahead a bit.

  1. Avoid Dehydration

Hydration is just a matter of drinking water. You can get fancy and use Pedialyte, Gatorade, coconut water or whatever electrolyte cocktail du jour appeals most to you. You should also drink plenty of water before, during and after drinking. Alcohol tricks your body into pumping out more fluid than it is taking in, also known as a diuretic. And, it is probably true that dehydration contributes to fatigue, poor muscle function and even headache. However, this is one of the easiest aspects of the “hangover” to remedy. Just drink plenty of H2O!

  1. Slow Down Alcohol Absorption

Everyone always talks about eating greasy comfort food after the damage has already been done, the next day when the hangover is already in progress. This might make you feel better psychologically; and it can help replace nutrients and vitamins to recover. But, a far better option is to eat fatty foods prior to going out drinking. Rather than a plate of cheese fries, your best bet would be to have a steak salad. Let’s not get into the “bad” vs. “good” fat debate here; as it’s beyond the scope of this article. For us, the combination of some saturated fat from the steak, healthier fats from olive oil dressing and/or avocado and greens is the perfect combination. The fat slows down absorption of alcohol in the stomach, which helps to give your liver a better chance to keep up with breaking down both alcohol and ALD, the poisonous metabolite of ethanol mentioned above. While we’re on the subject of greens…

  1. Eat Asparagus, Artichoke and/or Greens etc…

These things contain phytonutrients, antioxidants and amino acids that help the body to upregulate the breakdown of the poison from the toxins. More specifically, many greens contain something called cytochrome P-450, which plays a role in breaking down the poison. In addition, greens, whey protein, curcumin and whole eggs can provide glutathione and its precursors to further boost the process. We’ll tell you a little more about L-Glutathione in just a moment as it’s a key ingredient in Intox-Detox.

  1. Choose Drinks Wisely

It’s true that not all alcoholic drinks are created equally. Whether it’s sulfites in wine, congeners in dark liquors like whiskey and rum or just mixing a number of different kinds of drinks together, there are many ways to go wrong. Your best bet is to pick a drink and stick with it for the night. Some people just have issues with one particular type of alcohol or another. For example, if wine or champagne is your kryptonite, just toast half a glass and move on to something that sits better with your body. Also, “beer before liquor, never sicker” is a real thing. Drinking beer first, followed by liquor can make you “sicker” because of the carbonation, which expedites inebriation. Over-drinking in general is another big problem. There’s a point at which any number of natural hangover remedies will just do nothing for you. If you are drinking to the point where you need medical intervention, you already have a problem. Slow it down and enjoy yourself. Someone once gave me a great piece of advice and it went like this: tomorrow all the beer breweries, wineries and liquor distilleries will be back to work. The alcohol will still be there tomorrow or next week. Drink moderately and enjoy yourself; there’s no need to conquer the world in one night. Live to drink another day.

  1. Inflammation Intervention

Drinking alcohol causes cellular inflammation. The free radicals from its poisons attack your body at the cellular level. Inflammation is implicated in many chronic diseases, and in just not feeling so well in general. For this reason many people advocate taking an NSAID like aspirin or ibuprofen before bed, after a night of drinking. We are going to recommend that you NOT do this. Some of these can actually exasperate the damage to your liver. In particular, DO NOT EVER take acetaminophen for this purpose. This drug, more widely branded and known as Tylenol, can damage your liver all by itself in large quantities. Add alcohol to the mix and you are creating a perfect storm for liver disease. The least harmful of these is probably aspirin, but do recall that aspirin is still a powerful drug that kills a lot of people, for one reason or another, each year. Proceed with caution. Another option is to take natural anti-inflammatories before bed, like omega-3, berries – strawberry, blueberry, raspberry – cherries, and spices/supplements such as turmeric, boswellia extract and ginger.

  1. Detox, Recover, Protect with Intox-Detox

This is where Intox-Detox comes in and really takes the “heist” to the next level. Everything up to this point has been pretty much common sense, mixed with a little bit of folk remedy and basic science. Intox-Detox takes the science to a whole new level. The combination of Japanese raisin, Setria L-Glutathione, Green Tea and Panax Ginseng specifically targets ALD for breakdown, as much as 65% faster than usual. L-Glutathione neutralizes ALD in the bloodstream, marking it for detoxification in the liver. Japanese raisin increases the amount of the ALDH2 enzyme in the liver, to break down the poison and get it out of Dodge before it does too much damage. Green tea and Panax ginseng provide antioxidants and help to detox the liver, specifically further targeting ALD for elimination from the body.

  1. Adequate Rest

The Glutamine-rebound phenomenon we referred to above is a little complicated. Let’s simplify and give you the very basic explanation. Poisoning yourself with alcohol (drinking heavily) uses up the amino acid Glutamine (different than Glutathione, but equally important). To catch up, your body proceeds to over produce glutamine to make up for it. Glutamine excites the brain and disrupts GABA receptors in your noggin that allow you to get deep sleep. The result is that intoxicated sleep never achieves the deep REM cycles of normal rest. You either toss and turn or “pass out”; both result in low-quality sleep, which leaves you tired and poorly rested the next day. Intox-Detox actually helps to prevent the GABA disruption, allowing for better quality sleep. Don’t get us wrong; if you stay up all night drinking and only get 3 or 4 hours sleep, you will feel tired. Intox-Detox will help you sleep deeper, just make sure to get at least 6 or 7 hours, so that you are adequately rested when you wake up.

  1. Energize

Coffee or tea can help you get going the next day. We didn’t add any stimulants to Intox-Detox because they are very easy to find all around you. You probably have coffee in your house right now; and unless you live in a shack in the middle of the desert, odds are there’s a Starbucks within a mile or two. Every gas station has at least 5 different energy drinks that will get you going. A lot of people think we put ginseng and green tea in Intox-Detox for energy, which is not entirely untrue. However, this misses the point. The amount of green tea in the product provides amounts of caffeine equivalent to a cup of decaf coffee. It’s true that ginseng contains natural energy promoting chemicals and acts as an adaptogen to normalize body functions. Still, the primary reason for choosing these ingredients was to detox, recover and protect.

Conclusion:

So, there you have it. Your best bet for getting away with the heist are the tips listed above. Hell, you might feel so good that you want to return to the scene of the crime tomorrow. Combine the above with a serving or two of Intox-Detox and you can HAVE FUN TONIGHT and FEEL GREAT TOMORROW.

Did I say “a serving or two”? Yes I did. Intox-Detox is all natural and safe to take in larger amounts than one package. While we would never recommend drinking excessively, we also understand that moderation is a relative term. What’s moderate to me may not be your definition of MODERATION. Also, for better or worse, some of us get carried away at a wedding or catching up with old friends and lose track of time and drinks, resulting in less moderation than we had planned for. For example, on a bourbon night, CEO Andy Bennett will often take a package of Intox-Detox prior to drinking, and then another before bed. That strategy combined with the tips above will go a long way toward “getting away with it”!

Forgot to take your Intox-Detox last night? It still works in the morning. Wake up and take the full package with water and you can expect to start feeling a bit better in as soon as 45 minutes to an hour. That’s how powerful this product is! Remember however that it’s always better to take Intox-Detox prior to drinking alcohol because then you can benefit from the liver-protective effects of the ingredients.

Haven’t tried Intox-Detox yet? Head over here and grab a free sample. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee (to cover shipping), you can hit the town on a “crime spree” and see the powerful results for yourself!

Gin Gimlet – Sugar-Free + Intox-Detox = a Healthier Better Tomorrow

alcoholic mixed drinks gin gimlet

(Photo credit to http://us.thebar.com/)

Last week we shared one of our favorite lower-sugar alcoholic drink recipes, the no-sugar added Pina Colada. If you missed it, go check it out at http://intox-detox.com/pina-colada-recipe-intox-detox-fav-alcoholic-mixed-drinks/

Today, we offer another classic with a new twist, this time for all you gin lovers. However, if if you don’t like gin, this one might be worth a go. We have actually made this for people who “don’t drink gin” and they absolutely loved it. As always, we are keeping the sugar to a minimum. In this case it’s virtually zero. Sure, there are minute amounts of sugar in the lime juice, but, for all intents and purposes, it’s about as sugar-free as you can get. And don’t forget all natural too.

When we developed the Intox-Detox product, it had to be all natural; and we wouldn’t accept anything less. Intox-Detox is vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free and made in America. Let’s get on with the recipe all ready. These are technically in the family of classic martini cocktails and can be enjoyed day or night. Just be careful because they can sneak up on you.

Gin Gimlet Sugar-Free

What You Need

-1.5 to 2 shots gin

-1 shot of fresh squeezed lime juice

-3-4 packets of Truvia or Monk fruit extract (preferably half and half)

-1/2 teaspoon orange extract

-Lime wedge garnish

What You Do

Pack a shaker full of ice. Add gin, lime juice, optional orange extract and sweetener, 2 packets Truvia + 2 packets Monk fruit extract and 1/2 shot water or lemon/lime flavored soda water. If you like your drinks more “fresh” and not so sweet, use only 3 packets of sweetener. Shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Strain into a fancy martini glass, or any old cup for that matter. Garnish with a lime, cherry optional. If you absolutely can’t stomach the gin, you can substitute vodka for a milder less “ginny” taste. For a simpler prep, with no shaker, you can make this drink stirred, not shaken. Just put all the ingredients into a glass with ice and stir thoroughly. In for a long night? Make it a double in a 12 to 16 oz glass!

Happy Friday and don’t forget to take Intox-Detox for a better tomorrow.

Epic Nights and Better Tomorrows – From the CEO

InstagramCapture_049b224a-5173-4c1a-a59b-0a27a79559fe

 

Ever had that perfect night out that you didn’t plan at all? Like, as of 6 pm on a Friday you had absolutely nothing to do. You thought you might just take it easy and hit the gym early in the am the next day. You’re not fitness obsessed, but you like to keep a healthy balance. Then you got a random call from an old friend posted up at a bar down the street. What the hell, one or two drinks you tell yourself. You catch up over a few shots, laughing up a storm. It’s one of those perfect nights where the drinks come fast but the time seems to move slowly. The DJ seems to be playing the greatest hits of your life, every song is right on point. You get a little buzzed and tell a story you have never told anyone ever before. It’s cathartic. It’s fun. You bounce around to bar after bar like a stream of consciousness poet, writing as the abstract thoughts flow. Yet it all makes perfect sense and everything rhymes. You’re writing a masterpiece with inside jokes, witty observations and maybe even a touch of the profound. And more than a touch of some serious booze. It’s just the perfect night out. We have all had it once or twice when we caught lightning in a bottle. You were with the perfect squad, always in the right places and redefining EPIC. It’s the evening you have been trying to recreate every time you go out, yet it so seldom works out that way.

But what about the gym? Alcohol doesn’t make a great performance enhancing supplement. Fun as it may be, it’s downright debilitating. Those of us who like to stay fit, we have all been there too. You had a few too many. Maybe it was even worth it, but now you’re on a treadmill or caged in a squat rack wishing you were anywhere else. Literally anywhere. The eternal depths of Hell might seem like a viable alternative, but you’re already in it. Your muscles refuse to fire as your brain requests because your body used up most of your glycogen (muscle fuel) trying to detoxify your liver, which is still ongoing, and not going well. Last night’s alcohol tricked your body into pumping out all the water in your system along with much needed electrolytes that were not replaced yet. Due to an alcohol-induced effect called glutamine rebound you tossed and turned all night. Or worse passed out without ever attaining deep REM sleep. That also means your hormones – including HGH and testosterone – were ravaged in the process. Making almost any form of power or resistance training almost entirely pointless. You wonder why you even bothered to come to the gym at all, and in truth you are probably right. You shouldn’t have. You’d be so much happier lying on the couch with a ½ gallon of ice cream, watching a Netflix marathon. Or maybe you’re best bet is to return to the scene of the crime and level off with a Bloody Mary, which will ultimately just prolong your hangover. You had a blast last night and it was totally worth it, but this isn’t feeling like the healthy balance you were striving for. Before you grab the big spoon and the Haagen Dazs, let me fill you in on something that could fix the situation. It very well may change your life. It’s my secret weapon for enjoying a night out, but getting away with it and making it to the gym the next day. And it’s called Intox-Detox.

(Enough jabbering already – save 20% with coupon code ABID20 right now!)

Andy Bennett, CEO of Intox-Detox here. From playing soccer for over half my life, literally, to powerlifting, bodybuilding and more recently just trying to stay fit in general, I have been there. I enjoy drinks with friends and family on the regular, but I absolutely hate hangovers and the loss of productivity they cause. First, in my mid to late 20’s it was missing a few trips to the gym. By my early 30’s, I could hardly function after an epic night out. Now that I know what I know, I won’t take a drink without Intox-Detox. So many of my friends still play soccer regularly. Others run, do cross fit, bodybuilding and figure competitions, resistance and/or power training or just aspire to be healthy in general by working out, eating decently and staying young and pain-free for as long as possible. I’ll be completely honest, I created Intox-Detox for myself (with the help of a very smart guy named Geoff Palmer). However, nothing in my life has been more fulfilling than sharing it with my family, friends and new customers who are not yet my friends, but will be. So what the heck is Intox-Detox?

I’ll give you the short version of the story. Intox-Detox is an all-natural dietary supplement that helps break down a specific poison that comes from alcohol. This nasty substance, known as acetaldehyde (ALD for short), is far more toxic than the alcohol itself, and it causes much of the misery of the day after you have a few drinks. As an analogy, if alcohol is a paintball, ALD is a hollow point bullet. In that case Intox-Detox would be a bullet proof vest for your liver. Some might say ALD is even worse, for example, more like a nuclear bomb. One of the nasty little things about this chemical is that it’s highly carcinogenic, meaning it could cause the big C – CANCER.

By the way, for all the health nuts like me, the formula is also non-GMO, gluten-free and even vegan. The main superstar ingredient is called Japanese raisin and it basically upregulates the detoxification of that nasty chemical ALD by as much as 60 to 65%. That’s a big deal, folks. When the mainstream figures out what Japanese raisin does and how well it does it… I don’t like to speculate, so I’ll allow you to imagine the profits and social revolution about to come by answering a simple question: Do you know anyone who wants a hangover? The second main ingredient is Setria; it’s a patented version of the amino acid L-Glutathione, which usually is poorly absorbed by the body. Setria “reduced” it in such a way that it makes its way into the blood stream, reassembles itself into its blood-bound form (GSH) and helps to neutralize toxins, in this case chiefly ALD. GSH is like a super antioxidant for the body. Our bodies make it, but we have less as we age. And it is quickly exhausted when you are guzzling a poison like alcohol. Lastly, we added the support ingredients Green Tea and Panax Ginseng. A lot of people think these are for energy. Nothing could be further from the truth. They might give you a little energy, but there’s more than meets the eye here. And yes, they are loaded with natural antioxidants that are good for you. However, we chose these backup singers because preliminary research has shown that they help detox the liver, specifically that pesky old ALD stuff. Intox-Detox is the only alcohol detoxification and recovery supplement that contains both things your body needs to protect the body, break down the ALD faster and avoid the suffering: Setria L-Glutathione and Japanese raisin.

Now, you probably have a few questions and I want to read your mind and address them right now, before I give you a chance to pick up some Intox-Detox for 20% off today. If you want to skip class and go right to the party, click here…

Aren’t there other products like this on the market?

No. There are many other products pretending to be what we are. Mostly marketing companies who sprinkle B vitamins, antioxidants, electrolytes, caffeine and even aspirin into a formula that you take the next day after the damage is already done. Sure, some of these ingredients are good for you, but they do not address the root problem, which is the buildup of ALD in your body. Besides, why do you need an expensive supplement to get vitamins, stimulants and hydration? Drink water. Make coffee. Buy a B-complex. Pop an aspirin (with care – do recall this is a powerful drug). All of these are cheaply and easily attained. Intox-Detox provides ingredients that you don’t have lying around the house. And you take Intox-Detox BEFORE the damage is done, to both protect your body and prevent the misery of the next day. Stop covering up the problem and attack it head on proactively, and with real science. There are a handful of companies who are on the right track and I salute them for that. But for the most part, everything available in the mass market simply cannot hold a candle to Intox-Detox.

If this is so great how come nobody ever thought of it before?

Maybe it’s that they’re not as smart. I can’t take all the credit; my team is special. Maybe they didn’t have the courage to stare a problem as old as time in the face and look for a real solution. Many tried to talk me out of it. Maybe they have the right ingredients, but they wanted to make more money by using less than the clinical dosage. Maybe it’s a combination of luck, courage and smarts. Whatever the reason, Intox-Detox brought this formula to market first and the word is spreading like wildfire. My stated goal when we began was to achieve nothing less than to change the world for the better. That’s why we say “Take Tonight for a Better Tomorrow”. Yes, we are referring to a better tomorrow the night after a few drinks. However, I sincerely want to make a better tomorrow for everyone, including my friends, my family and everyone else on this big blue world.

Where can I buy Intox-Detox?

We are making big moves into retail locations across the country. Very soon, you will see Intox-Detox on the shelves or by the cash register of your local gas stations and convenience stores. We are also working with many local and regional vitamin and health food stores. Our goal is to make sure that everywhere alcohol or supplements are sold, people have the opportunity to learn about Intox-Detox, protect their body from damage and wake up feeling okay the next day after drinking. In the meantime, as we build those accounts, the website is a great place to buy the product. We offer incredible discounts, with frequent cyclical and “flash” sales. Intox-Detox ships anywhere in the US in less than 5 days, usually in only 3 days. That means that if it’s Tuesday and you might go out this weekend, there’s a really good chance you can have the product in your hands by Friday or Saturday. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a call from an old friend… Even better, maybe it will be me!

Please feel free to email info@intox-detox.com if you have any further questions about the product.

Pina Colada Recipe – Intox-Detox Fav Alcoholic Mixed Drinks

pina-colada-alcoholic-mixed-drinks

 

Here at Intox-Detox, we love our cocktails. Actually we never met a drink we didn’t like. Well, that’s not entirely true… We have met a few drinks we didn’t like, but we never hold a grudge! Hold tight and we will share a drink recipe that will change your life! No seriously, it will.

The problem with a lot of cocktails is that they are often loaded with sugar. And this tropical favorite – the Pina Colada – is no exception. Not only will sugar bulge your waist-line, but it’s also highly inflammatory, which could make your hangover even worse if you over do it.

Years ago, Intox-Detox CEO Andy Bennett set out on a quest to find great alcoholic mixed drinks that taste great, yet contain lower or zero sugar. After all, if you are going to be indulging in sugar, save it for something really good like a piece of cake or a big old chocolate chip cookie. This recipe is one of his favorites. It is not entirely sugar or fat-free because coconut and pineapple inevitably contain some natural sugars and fats. However, these things are loaded with antioxidants and help to give you energy. They are unlikely to make you “fat” the way traditional Pina Coladas will; these contain large amounts of both fat and added sugars. Without further ado, here is your first Intox-Detox recipe…

The No-Sugar-Added All-Natural Pina Colada

What You Need

-1 to 1.5 shots Light Rum (we like Cruzan)

-1 shot of Organic Coconut milk – make sure you get the one in a can in the Asian food section of the grocery store.

-1/2 tablespoon Truvia

-1/2 tablespoon Monk Fruit Extract

-1/2 cup frozen pineapple

-One all-natural dye-free maraschino cherry for garnish

-Black or dark rum to float on top (optional)

*Makes 1 drink. Since Pina Coladas go best with friends on the beach, make sure to scale up for your party. Most conventional blenders will do 6 to 8 drinks max at one time.

What You Do

Add all ingredients to a blender. Spiced or dark rum can be used in place of light rum, but we like to save that for the float at the end! For your calorie free sweetener, you can go with just Truvia or Monk Fruit if you don’t have both. However, the reason Zevia makes outstanding sugar-free sodas is because they mix the two. (If you don’t know about them, you better figure it out because their rainbow of flavors will appear frequently in our drink recipes to come) Blend for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour into a fancy glass, preferably with a colorful little umbrella. Garnishing with cherry is highly recommended, while the pineapple and orange slice skewered on one of those little plastic swords is totally optional. Float your dark rum on top; Myers, Black Seal or even the Kraken works wonders for that!

Happy blending! Enjoy and don’t forget to take your Intox-Detox!
