Some consumers have questioned marketing claims made by an interesting product intended to combat the age-old problem of the common hangover.
Is there such a thing as a real hangover cure?
- “Our main ingredient, Japanese Raisin Tree Fruit Extract is clinically proven to help protect against hangovers and improve well-being, now with a national award to prove it!”
- “Drink at night during or after consuming alcohol and wake up feeling great!”
- “LIFE SUPPORT’s proprietary blend has been specifically engineered to suppress your immune system’s negative response that normally occurs after consuming alcohol. By suppressing this immune response, Life Support stops hangovers before they start.“
- “The Japanese Raisin Tree Fruit has been shown to promote ALDH enzyme activity, which helps breakdown harmful toxins resulting from alcohol consumption. Increasing ALDH activity allows your body to metabolize alcohol at a much faster pace!“
These are bold claims indeed. Does science truly support this alleged hangover cure?
In 2005, the Food and Drug Administration “found serious violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act” in regards to Life Support’s Recovery Shot’s labeling, and accused Life Support of marketing an “unapproved new drug.”
