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.
