This Bottled Drink Claims To Cure Hangovers
Inspired by Korean supplements, Morning Recovery can be taken at the end of a night of drinking to stop hangovers in their tracks
Morning Recovery is the a result of a period of time that founder Sisun Lee spent in South Korea. Lee, who has worked for Facebook, Tesla and Uber, noticed that many of the locals would take supplements after going out to drink and would show up the next day for work feeling just fine. Once he returned to the United States, he partnered with doctors at USC to create Morning Recovery.
The key ingredient in the powerful (anti) cocktail is Dihydromyricetin (DHM) from Hovenia Dulcis. DHM is a powerful flavonoid that aids in breaking down toxins that are present in alcohol. DHM aids in the breakdown of toxins in the liver, and it helps with the “rebound effect” of alcohol on the brain, meaning no headaches or brain fog.
DHM is not the only ingredient in Morning Recovery: the drink is loaded with other hangover smashing ingredients, including vitamins C and B complex, Korean Pear extract, milk thistle, electrolytes and taurine, to name a few. The blend is vegan, non-GMO, caffeine-free, dairy-free, lactose-free and nut-free.
Morning Recovery is totally preemptive; users should take it before going to sleep to kill the hangover before it ever arrives. The drink comes in packs of 6, 12 and 24, priced at $30, $55 and $100, respectively.
