UK-based tech brand HangZing has developed a drinkable supplement that is said to fight the effects of hangovers through the use of herbs, electrolytes and vitamins.
The brand aims to cut the annual cost of hangovers to the UK economy, which is estimated at almost £2 billion in absenteeism and lost productivity.
Available in two flavours – lychee and lemongrass, and garden mint – each 100ml bottle is sweetened from Canadian maple syrup and is free from added sugar, sweeteners and is suitable for vegans.
HangZing said the functional supplement fights hangovers in three ways. First, it is said to harness the powers of hepatoprotective herbs of hovenia dulcis, milk thistle, nopal cactus and Siberian ginseng to facilitate the breakdown of the by-product acetaldehyde into smaller components.
Aloe vera, turmeric and vitamin C then work together “to reduce inflammation and neutralise acidity in the stomach to ease discomfort along with boosting the immune system”. Finally, electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium help to replenish the minerals and nutrients lost from drinking.
HangZing founder Mohit Wadhwani said: “HangZing is a ground-breaking innovation that is at the forefront of a bold new category for products specifically designed to combat the effect of hangovers.
“The new range is the ultimate solution for individuals that want to work hard and play hard and will cut the annual cost of hangovers to the UK economy.”
The products work best when consumed just before bed with plenty of water. Each flavour is available with a recommended retail price of £27.99 per box (6 x 100ml bottles).
