It’s a Myrkl! How new hangover pill works and where to buy it

A new “miracle” hangover prevention pill promises to block the effects of drinking too much, leaving moderate drinkers feeling fresh the next day.

Myrkl is a new supplement that claims to rapidly break down alcohol in the gut before it reaches the liver, allowing people to enjoy a few drinks in the evening without feeling the effects the next day.

So how does the hangover prevention pill work? Find out everything you need to know below…

How does the Myrkl hangover prevention pill work?

The Myrkl hangover pill contains bacteria, L-Cysteine, and B12 which are activated in the gut before the alcohol reaches the liver.

The alcohol is then broken down into water and carbon dioxide, and no-to-low Acetaldehyde & Acetic acid is produced by the liver.

According to Myrkl, up to 70% of alcohol is broken down after 60 minutes.

For the maximum effect, drinkers should take two pills at least two hours before consuming alcohol.

Myrkl says: “Food supplements are intended to supplement the diet and should not replace a varied diet or healthy lifestyle.

“This product is intended to be used as part of a balanced diet, healthy lifestyle and limited alcohol consumption within government guidelines.”

Myrkl also warns people against using the pill before binge-drinking, saying: “Myrkl must never be an excuse to drink more alcohol and you should always limit your alcohol consumption within the government guidelines.”

Where can you buy the Myrkl prevention pill?

The Myrkl hangover prevention pill can be purchased at myrkl.co.uk. A box of 30 tablets costs £30.

The pills are currently in stock and are usually dispatched within 24 hours.

What is a hangover?

Hangovers are generally caused by dehydration, the symptoms of which include headaches, nausea, and dizziness.

The main cause of a hangover is ethanol, which is a toxic chemical and a diuretic, which makes people need to pee more and become dehydrated as a result.

How to avoid hangover

The NHS has shared advice for drinkers on how to avoid a hangover:

  • Don’t drink more than you know you can cope with

  • Do not drink on an empty stomach

  • Do not drink dark coloured drinks if you’re sensitive to them

  • Drink water or non-fizzy soft drinks between each alcoholic drink

  • Drink a pint of water before going to sleep

How to treat a hangover

The NHS says that there is no cure for a hangover, but there are ways to ease your discomfort:

  • Rehydrate before going to sleep

  • Take painkillers to help a headache

  • Eat sugary foods and take an antacid to settle your stomach

  • Eat Bouillon soup, which is a good source of vitamins and minerals

  • Drink bland drinks like water and isotonic drinks

  • Do not drink more alcohol and wait 48 hours before drinking again

What are the low-risk guidelines for drinking?

People are advised to not drink more than 14 units on a regular basis, and people who do drink 14 units a week should spread their drinking out over three or more days.

The NHS says this is considered low-risk drinking, as there is no “safe” drinking level. Regularly drinking more than 14 units a week after 10 or 20 years can cause cancer, stroke, heart disease, liver disease, brain damage, and damage to the nervous system.

The NHS says regular drinking at high-risk levels can also harm mental health.
