How is Alcohol handled by your body?
When Alcohol is consumed, be it Beer, Liquor or Wine it is predominantly broken down in your liver.
Blood Alcohol Level increases when the body absorbs alcohol faster than it can eliminate it. Seeing as the average healthy person can only eliminate about one serving of alcohol per hour, drinking several drinks per hour over a few hours will significantly increase your Blood Alcohol Level.
Since the liver can only process a set amount of alcohol per hour. The remainder gets “stacked” in the body, beginning in your stomach, which is why you end up experiencing side effects for a prolonged period of time. As rule of thumb, an average person can eliminate 0.5 oz (15 ml) of alcohol per hour. So, it would take approximately one hour to eliminate the alcohol from a 12 oz (355 ml) can of beer.
The average person consumes more than 3 drinks per hour in a given social event. This excess can lead to the over taxation of the liver, basic nervous and pulmonary functions as well as blood poisoning and death.
So How does Sober.Me work?
Sober.Me aims to diminish the effects of alcohol consumption by helping your body do away with the “stacked” excess alcohol in your stomach before the liver has to process it. It is best taken prior to drinking for optimal results. The active element is on the FDA’s Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list and as such has been shown to be adequately safe under the conditions of its intended use.
Sober.Me is not intended to completely nullify the effects of alcohol but to act as a boost for your system to reduce the net amount of alcohol in the body and as a result diminish its side effects and the duration one is impaired as well as the “morning after” effect.
