What is inside each of The Hangover Hero capsules? And how do each of them help?

The Hangover Hero capsules contain no pharmaceutical products. It is considered a dietary supplement in the USA and is not intended to cure or treat any medical condition. It has a combination of ingredients shown to target the after effects of alcohol consumption.

The main ingredients contained within it include:
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) 
Dihydromyricetin (DHM) 
Prickly Pear Extract 
Milk Thistle
Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Pyridoxine (B6), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3)
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

When do I take these capsules? And why?

The Hangover Hero capsules only work on prevention - it will not work in the morning once the hangover has started (although it may help resolve the hangover quicker). We recommend preparing the dose you will need beside your bed and taking it either after your last drink or just before going to sleep. We'd also recommend a full glass of water with them as water will also reduce the effects of dehydration in the morning.
The capsules are always better absorbed on an empty stomach (not with food) but if that can't be avoided, it will just take a little longer to be absorbed. Taking The Hangover Hero before you drink alcohol may increase the amount you need to become intoxicated or reduce the time to sober up.


Can I take the capsules before/during drinking and if so, what will happen?

Yes, you can take them whenever you like although the recommended time to reduce your hangover is at last drinks and/or prior to bed. A word of warning, taking The Hangover Hero may give you the feeling of being sober while consuming larger amounts of alcohol - drink responsibly knowing this. It will not change your blood alcohol level or give you the ability to drink and drive.

How many of these capsules should I take?

The recommended dose is 1 capsule per 3-4 drinks (with a minimum of 2 capsules per session). On a big night out, the average male can consumes anywhere up to 15 alcoholic drinks which would mean a pre-bed dose of 4 capsules! There are no side effects to taking more capsules than required so never under dose your night if you want to help that morning hangover! The dose required to assist with hangover symptoms is much less than the dose required to reduce the effects of intoxication. 

Is this safe?

Yes, and you can be reassured by the fact that The Hangover Hero was founded and entirely formulated by a medical doctor. There are no known side effects to any of the ingredients at the doses found in our capsules. People are still vulnerable to their own allergies which are out of our control - please ensure you seek the advice of your doctor if you have any severe allergies or are known to have a reaction to ingredients listed prior to taking it. Some herbal extracts are also known to react to a small group of medications and a doctor should be consulted to ensure medications you take regularly aren't affected by any of the ingredients. All ingredients are listed on the bottle.

Is it safe during pregnancy or while breast feeding?

As no clinical trials have specifically been performed on all our ingredients for those who are pregnant or breast feeding, our recommendation is to avoid it or speak to you local physician before trying it. You probably shouldn't be drinking any alcohol if you're pregnant anyway.

Are there any medications to avoid while taking The Hangover Hero?

Not specifically but you should always consult your doctor if concerned. A number of herbal extracts may have a theoretical effect to regular medications you take on a regular basis.

Why did my urine/pee change colour the day after?

This is normal and expected. As with most multi-vitamins, B-group vitamins are excreted through your urine and those not taken up will be seen in your urine the following day.

Can I use The Hangover Hero to sober up before driving?

No - do not drink and drive! In high doses, The Hangover Hero is known to make you feel less drunk than you most likely are. Unfortunately if caught, your blood alcohol level will tell otherwise.

Will I get addicted to The Hangover Hero?

It contains no addictive ingredients although once you try it, you might just find it hard to survive a big night out without it!
