The Hangover Prevention Patch
I have been searching for this product my entire life. Ok, maybe not my entire life but certainly since the day I graduated from college, which somehow also became the day my hangovers went from bad to just plain ugly. What is it about becoming any actual adult that means after two glasses of wine on a Wednesday you are absolutely guaranteed a headache the next day? And a reunion weekend with your college friends? Forget it.
At the risk of sounding like a complete lush, I am here to tell you about my new favorite thing: the “hangover prevention patch,” Bytox.
How does it work? Stick this badboy on your skin 45 minutes before you start drinking and keep it on 8 hours after you stop. Simple.
I was skeptical too, but I thought it was worth a shot and I really gave it a good test. I won’t tell you exactly how much I drank, but let’s just say it was a marathon, not a sprint, and involved tequila and wine. I woke up the next day without a headache and my stomach felt fine. I felt oddly guilty – surely after all I drank I was supposed to have a hangover? But no, I actually felt great. And my friend, who went drink for drink with me, let’s just say she was not feeling great.
If you’re really interested in what it’s made of: Bytox is a specially-formulated hangover prevention patch which effectively replenishes the vital levels of vitamins and nutrients your body loses when you consume alcohol (which would explain why I smelled like a multivitamin all night – a small price to pay). The innovative combination of B vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients help keep your body hydrated, which means you can enjoy a hangover-free morning. Basically your body will quickly replenish what’s lost during the consumption of alcohol.
Plus, unlike the alcohol consumed, the patch has zero calories. Like I said: New. Favorite. Thing.
The patches are only $14.99 for a pack of five – available online and in select stores. You can thank me in the morning.
