Despite it's power, FixU Drink is not a magic potion, but a supplement that's formulated from a synergistic combination of natural ingredients.
One of the most important compounds found in FixU is dihydromyricetin, DHM in short, which is a flavonoid extracted from the Japanese Raisin Tree (Hovenia Dulcis). In Asia, especially in Chinese and Japanese folk medicine, Hovenia Dulcis has been known and used widely for centuries but the western medicine started early research on the compound as late as the 1980's. The latest studies have proven DHM to be useful in a multitude of uses and it has even been used to supplement a clinical drug regimen to recover from alcohol poisoning and withdrawal effects of heavy alcohol abuse. In studies published in 2010, 2012 and 2017 DHM has been shown to have liver protecting effects.
Milk Thistle (Silybum Marianum) has been studied widely since the 1980's and it has been used for it's hepatoprotective (liver protecting) abilities. It can help stop oxidative stress and free radical damage in the liver and research shows milk thistle may even restore damaged liver cells. Milk Thistle also protects the liver against damage from alcohol and some prescription drugs.
The symptoms of the alcohol hangover are largely due to the activation of inflammation. A double-blind study in 2004 showed that Prickly Pear (Opuntia Ficus) extract has a moderate effect on reducing hangover symptoms, apparently by inhibiting the production of inflammatory mediators.
In a study published in 2014, that was a larger replication of a study in 1987, it was shown that a specifically prepared and extracted Ginseng extract (Red Ginseng) reduced plasma alcohol levels in the blood faster than the control group and also reduced expiratory concentrations of ethanol and even the subjective feeling of hangover severity in the test subjects. Thus the study concluded that red ginseng relieves the symptoms of hangover.
Jujube fruit (Ziziphus Jujuba) has been used in asian traditional medicine for ages to improve sleep quality, usually as a tea infusion. In first animal studies in the 20th century it was proven to improve deep sleep in mice. In medical human studies jujube extract has been shown to have sedative and mildly hypnotic eddects that may improve sleep quality. Furthermore, a study in 2017 showed that the constituents of jujube fruit have neuroprotective qualities.
A study in 2020 showed that the amino acid L-Cysteine prevents or alleviates hangover by reducing nausea, headache, stress and anxiety.
