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.
The functional supplement fights hangovers by harnessing 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.
