What is the Best Way to Take Intox-Detox?
For moderate drinkers doing a typical night out on the town, take 1 pack of Intox-Detox (yes, all 4 capsules) immediately before drinking. Another option is to wait until your 2nd or 3rd drink. Maybe you don’t know you’re making a night of it when you start. The science says that most guys and gals have exhausted their ability to break down the poisons in the liver by about drink 3 or 4. By that point, you are already starting to build tomorrow’s hangover! As long as you get 1 pack in sometime during drinking, you should get all of the liver-protective and misery-alleviating benefits.
What’s a typical night though? If you don’t get out much and tend to overdo it a little when you get the chance to have a few drinks, you are not alone. A lot of our friends have kids and stressful jobs too; we get it. The point is that we can’t define what your typical night out would be like. We always recommend moderate drinking, but we’d never pretend to know what’s right for you or your life. Here’s a good rule for taking Intox-Detox:
*Take 1 pack for every 4-6 hours or 4-6 drinks, whatever comes first
Remember that Intox-Detox is all-natural and has proven safe in human studies. (Always consult your physician first anyway). In fact, one study used the equivalent of 3 packs of the main ingredient, with impressive results. Keep in mind that not everything “natural” is good for you – see hemlock, cyanide and sulfuric acid for examples. It just turns out that multiple human studies show that Japanese raisin (the main ingredient) is very good for you, especially if you choose to drink alcohol.
And that brings us to the point of this blog post…
What About New Year’s Eve?
For most, New Year’s Eve tends to be anything but a TYPICAL NIGHT. That’s why CEO and #1 Intox-Detox guinea pig Andy Bennett recommends 2 packs for a night like this. Many of us go a bit harder on New Year’s Eve than usual. Letting go of the old year and welcoming a new one among friends and family lends itself to having a few extra drinks and really putting your liver to the test.
And remember, Intox-Detox has its limits. It’s not a magic pill or a “get-out-of-jail-free card”, though many users have made those comparisons. It’s for moderate, social drinkers who want to protect their bodies and help alleviate some of the pain of the next morning before it ever develops. We don’t know how much you are going to drink and we don’t know what your liver is bringing to the table genetically. The quantity of liver enzymes needed to detox alcohol is highly genetic. We do know that drinking more quantity can require some extra “help”. So, here’s our recommendation:
*Take 1 pack prior to or during drinking. Take 1 additional pack before bed.
Many users have told us that this is their “magic formula” for helping with a big night out.
And that’s it. Try to get a big meal in prior to your first drink, preferably with some healthy fats to help slow down absorption of alcohol from the digestive system. Think olive oil, egg yolks and avocado. All of those suggestions also contain other antioxidant components that could help. Greens and vegetables are a great choice for their natural detoxifying nutrients. It’s not a bad idea to take your multi-vitamin or B complex with this meal to be sure your body is well-stocked to do battle. It goes without saying that you must stay hydrated prior to, during and after drinking.
If you really overdid it or you forgot to take 1 or both packs on New Year’s Eve and you still woke up feeling a little under the weather, you can take a 3rd package upon waking. Most anecdotal reports from users indicate that doing so helps them feel much better within 45 minutes to an hour.
Whatever you do, be safe for the rest of this year. Enjoy the night, but keep it responsible. Use our Uber coupon code UBERINTOXDETOX to receive a discount on your first ride.
