You already have some Recoverthol in your body naturally- enough to process 1-2 standard drinks (depending on you weight, gender and other factors). Recoverthol will give you an extra dose of these essential cofactors to firstly replenish what you have used up, and also to protect you if you are going to drink more than the above amount.
Recoverthol is a liquid that you put in your drink and you don’t get a hangover. It contains ingredients that are found naturally in your body. When you drink alcohol, your liver gets to work using Alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme and its cofactors (i.e. Recoverthol), to slowly filter out the alcohol in your system. An extra dose of these cofactors WHILST you are drinking, is essential to replenish what you have used up in order to prevent getting a hangover. WHO recommends we should only drink 2 standard drinks per night, because that is what our liver can handle. But lets face it, sometimes we drink more that what we should. So when you indulge you need to have a Recoverthol. Without it, you are going to stress your liver. Recoverthol is not a blend of amino acids or exotic herbs. Recoverthol is the only product that is scientifically formulated and tested, based on medical knowledge of alcohol metabolism. Recoverthol is the real deal. It works, because it is simple and only has what your body needs.
So how does Recoverthol works?
When you drink, your liver gets to work using an enzyme to slowly filter out the alcohol in your system. Now some people have more and some have less of this. Because you only have so much of this in your body if you drink more that what your liver can handle (i.e. 1-2 standard drinks) well the alcohol is going to tax your liver, interrupts your sleep, makes you tired and give you a hangover.
When we exercise, we need extra water to rehydrate. The same principle applies when drinking alcohol. You need replace the ADH cofactors that you have used up. So just like you have some water when you exercise, you need Recoverthol when you drink alcohol.
People don’t want to swallow capsules, so we made it simple, a liquid that you can put in your first drink. One vial in your first drink and you’ll be covered for the rest of the night.
And of course it doesn’t change the taste of you drink.
Recoverthol promotes the efficient metabolism of alcohol.
The bulk of ingested alcohol is metabolised in the liver and initiated by an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). This enzyme breaks alcohol down so that it can be processed more easily by the body. In order to work, this enzyme requires helper compounds, namely, zinc ions and NAD cofactor (i.e. Recoverthol) which is constructed using Nicotinamide. Zinc ions hold the ethanol in place, while NAD performs the reaction.
This enzyme, in our liver and stomach, has been reported to effectively detoxify about one drink each hour. When people drink more than one alcoholic drink per hour, alcohol cannot be metabolized efficiently. As a result, toxic by-products build up, causing the symptoms of hangover such as headache, fatigue, nausea, dehydration, and sensitivity to light etc.
By providing an additional supply of alcohol dehydrogenase cofactor to the liver when drinking exceeds one drink per hour, the metabolism of alcohol can carry on, preventing a build up of toxic by-products and the subsequent development of hangover symptoms. The more efficient metabolism of alcohol will also serve to protect the liver from the damaging effects of alcohol metabolism.
Some people have genetically lower levels of ADH enzymes, including women and some ethnic groups. This causes a faster build up of toxic by-products when drinking alcohol, and possibly, more severe hangover symptoms.
Unfortunately, the liver’s stores of ADH cofactors quickly run out when larger amounts of alcohol enter the system. This causes a toxic by-product called acetaldehyde to build up in the body, causing the symptoms of hangover.
Although body weight is a factor, part of the reason women should not keep up with men drink-for-drink, is because women have less acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. This can often make their hangovers worse. The female body typically takes longer to break down alcohol than the male body, as a result of having lower levels of naturally occurring alcohol metabolizing enzymes.
