Alcohol Defense

No More Hangovers
Alcohol Defense is designed to speed up the metabolism of alcohol and its damaging metabolites. Each ingredient acts in a unique manner that counteracts the deleterious effects that alcohol has on the body.

One ingredient is Dihydromyricetin - A flavanol found in a number of plants that blocks alcohol from binding to the GABAa receptor. Dihydromyricetin also supports liver health, neutralizes alcohol levels in the body. Another key ingredient is Pyroglutamic Acid - an amino acid that is an intermediate in the glutathione cycle. Pyroglutamic acid can help protect cells from osmotic stress and antagonize alcohol’s effects on the NMDA receptors. The supplement also includes Succinic Acid, which is an intermediate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle, which creates ATP in mitochondria. Succinic acid activates the degradation of acetaldehyde, the main toxic metabolite of alcohol. Another ingredient is Ginger Extract (20% Gingerols + Shogaols) - Ginger regulates the effects of alcohol. Ginger is also a potent 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, which regulates stomach upset and the reinforcing effects of alcohol. The final ingredient is Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate - an active form of vitamin B6, which is a coenzyme in a number of crucial processes in the body. Alcohol consumption lowers pyridoxal 5-phosphate levels, so supplementation brings those levels back to normal.

How to use


This product works in 4 main ways. Firstly, by increasing the activity of Alcohol Dehydrogenase, speeding up the metabolism of alcohol. Secondly, by upregulating the activity of Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase, regulating the buildup of acetaldehyde. Thirdly, by inhibiting alcohol from binding to the GABAa receptor (the primary receptor behind alcohol’s intoxicating effects). Finally, suppress alcohol from binding to the 5-HT3 receptor, both neutralizing stomach upset and some of alcohol’s intoxicating effects.


  • Anti-alcoholic effects and avoid alcohol withdrawals (1).
  • Protect cells from osmotic stress and antagonize alcohol’s effects on the NMDA receptors (2).
  • Degradation of acetaldehyde, the main toxic metabolite of alcohol (3). 
  • Regulate & aid in the amelioration of stomach upset, from alcohol ingestion (4). 
  • Replenishes pyridoxal 5-phosphate levels, which are lowered from alcohol consumption (5).
