Our team of nutraceutical scientists set out to formulate the ideal supplement not only to counter the negative side-effects from an isolated evening of overindulgent drinking but a powerful combination of herbal botanicals that can be used as a daily regimen for long term health benefits. In collaboration with Life Enhancement Products, a award-winning lab in Nevada, we created a synergistic blend of traditional herbal extracts, flavonoids, vitamins and minerals that utilizes the latest drug-delivery system technology in the supplement industry. A delivery system is the vehicle for maximizing absorption of the active ingredients in the body. Without a delivery system, most supplements (pill/capsule/powder) are poorly absorbed, pass through the body unused and are therefore less effective.
HD is unique. HD has a proprietary nano-emulsion delivery system utilizing MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil derived from highest quality coconut oil in the industry. These microscopic nano-sized oil droplets transport the active ingredients across the wall of the small intestine into the blood stream and directly to the liver for greater absorption, faster response, and superior results. Hangover Destroyer has the most advanced delivery system ever created for the dietary supplement industry!
The raw materials we use in our proprietary blend are the safest, highest-quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients available in the world. We package under the purest possible clean-room conditions, and materials undergo lab testing to confirm purity greater than 98% (or we reject them!).
Hovenia dulcis – a plant found in Asia (aka Oriental or Japanese Raisin Tree) that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to relieve effects of intoxication due to excessive drinking of alcohol. The increased level of alcohol-induced liver enzyme (ADH & ALDH) activity suggests the plants extracts can effectively relieve hangover symptoms by enhancing the metabolism of the alcohol based ethanol molecule. The plant contains a a variety of flavonoids that work as powerful antioxidants & anti-inflammatories that protect cells against scavenging free radicals and oxidation. Antioxidants absorb and deactivate free-radicals, substances that can damage DNA. The accumulation of free radicals over time may contribute to the aging process and the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.
Kudzu root – In traditional Chinese medicine, where it is known as gat-gun,ge gan, kudzu is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs. Kudzu is a climbing vine native to Japan & China that belongs to the pea family. Its flowers and starchy white roots have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to increase circulation, an action that tends to reduce muscle pain and stiffness, and increases blood flow through the coronary arteries. One of its compounds is a beta-blocker, which reduces a racing pulse induced by stress. It has also been used for respiratory infections. Recent applications have focused on Kudzu’s active compounds used a herbal remedy for reducing alcohol cravings.
Milk Thistle – a flowering herb native to the Mediterranean region. It has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for a variety of ailments, including its hepatoprotective properties in adding and protecting the liver. Today, its primary herbal uses include liver disorders such as cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders. Silymarin, which can be extracted from the seeds (fruit) of the milk thistle plant, is believed to be the biologically active part of the herb.
Selenium – a trace element that is naturally present in many foods and is nutritionally essential for humans. Selenium is a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection.
Quercetin – a type of plant-based chemical, or phytochemical, known as a flavonoid . It is found in many plants and foods, such as apples, red wine, onions, berries, St. John's wort, Ginkgo bilova, American elder, and others. Quercetin appears to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties while exhibiting neuroprotective and induced anti-depressant effects.
N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – a modified form of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine with a powerful health benefits that derive from its ability to restore intracellular levels of glutathione (GSH), which is the human body’s most powerful antioxidant. Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant that helps the liver to protect you against toxicity, and it is most needed by those with liver disease. The stress of chronic liver disease or inflammation depletes glutathione and this is why supplementing with one of its precursors, NAC helps to protect
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) – a fatty acid that is naturally found inside every cell in the body. It is necessary to produce energy for the body’s everyday functions as it converts glucose into energy. ALA is also an antioxidant that works in both water and fat, unlike some other antioxidants. It can also recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione even after metabolism. Glutathione is an important antioxidant and ALA increases the formation of glutathione. It also enhances the antioxidant functions of vitamins C and E and directly supports detoxification within the liver. It can prevent cell damage, regulate blood sugar levels, chelate toxic metals from the blood, and enhance mental function and muscular energy production.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – a water-soluble vitamin, not stored in the body, essential for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, along with vitamin E, beta-carotene, and many other plant-based nutrients.
Vitamin B – Thiamine was one of the first compounds recognized as a vitamin, formerly known as vitamin B1. Thiamine is involved in many body functions, including nervous system and muscle function, the flow of electrolytes in and out of nerve and muscle cells, digestion, and carbohydrate metabolism. Very little thiamine is stored in the body and depletion can occur within 14 days. Acute alcohol toxicity can cause severe thiamine deficiency and lead to serious complications involving the nervous system, brain, muscles, heart, and stomach and intestines.
Peppermint oil – Used for centuries by many cultures, peppermint is not only a digestive, it also helps the respiratory and circulatory systems. It is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Essential mint oil is a cleanser, purifier, and detoxifier. It stimulates lymph system drainage, which helps reduce edema and supports detoxing efforts. It is thought to increase stomach acidity as well as directly affect the brain's satiety center, signaling a sensation of fullness after meals. For this reason, peppermint has become one of the oldest and most used herbs for soothing digestion issues and restoring digestive efficiency. Peppermint is most effective when used in its whole state, as an integral part of the essential oil.
Cinnamon – Traded for centuries on the spice route from the Far East, cinnamon has long been used not just as a flavor enhancer, but also for its medicinal qualities. As a powerful anti-oxidant, cinnamon helps to detoxify the system and stimulate brain function. Its essential oils have strong antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Because of its high levels of calcium and fiber, cinnamon also helps prevent against heart diseases, including coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Cinnamon will strengthen the cardiovascular system, shielding the body from heart-related disorders and increase circulation by acting as a natural blood-thinning agent.
