Heddrite

FAQs

What if I don’t think Heddrite works?
We’ll give you your money back.  All of it.

Will Heddrite keep me from getting drunk?
No. And you still cannot and should not drive a car, operate a turret lathe, or perform other activities which would ordinarily be unsafe after consuming alcohol.  And think about it - if it did stop you from getting drunk, would that be a good thing or a bad thing?

Will Heddrite work against all hangover symptoms?
Heddrite does a good job on the most nasty hangover symptoms, but alcohol affects so many different systems in the body that you are unlikely to feel absolutely 100% the next day.  We aim to get you up to 80 or 90%.

Will Heddrite help protect me from the negative health effects of alcohol use?
There are two reasons we can’t answer that question.  First, there’s almost no research on that question.  Second, we are forbidden by law from making health claims that we can’t substantiate, and since there’s almost no research on that question…

We will, however, boldly state that taking Heddrite falls into the “can’t hurt, might help” category.  Heddrite works because it helps your liver quickly break down acetaldehyde, a toxic chemical produced in your body when you drink alcohol.  Acetaldehyde is sometimes used as an embalming fluid, so we’re thinking that less of it in your body is better!

The components of Heddrite have been shown to prevent some effects of alcohol toxicity in animal studies.  If we get rich and famous, we plan to fund some research on humans.

Should I take Heddrite before I drink or after I drink?
Both.  You should start with three capsules before drinking and three when you are done drinking.  You may find – depending on how much you drink or your age or your personal metabolism – that you can take less.

Does it make sense to take Heddrite if I’m just having a couple of drinks?
This depends in part on how sensitive you are to hangover symptoms.  In general your liver does a good job at breaking down the acetaldehyde from one or two drinks, but It certainly can’t hurt.  If you want to find out if it helps you, you might want to start with a reduced dose.

Why do I have to take so many pills?
Well, we’d love it if you didn’t have to, because it would make the product easier to use and easier to sell.  But here’s the deal.  Alcohol is a fairly strange drug – and sure, it is a drug.  A few wispy puffs of smoke will get you high on pot, but to get a decent buzz on alcohol, you have to consume a *lot* of it.  Let’s say you drink 4 or 5 (or ok, maybe 6 or 7) generous glasses of wine.  That means you are drinking almost an entire wine glass of pure alcohol (yikes!).  A lot of alcohol means a lot of acetaldehyde, which means you need a fair amount of Heddrite to help your liver break it down.  There’s just no way one or two pills could do it unless we made them the size of a ping pong ball.

If I drink more, should I take more?
Good question!  We all have those occasions (the company Christmas party, for example, or your little brother’s wedding) where things get a little out of hand.  While the recommended dose will do you just fine if you’re splitting a bottle of wine with your sweetie, you definitely want to take more if we’re talking beer pong, Tequila shooters, or fluffed marshmallow vodka.  If you find yourself involved in such unfortunate activities, you may wish to take a middle dose in addition to the before and after doses.

The more you drink, the more acetaldehyde you need to get rid of.

Will it help if I take Heddrite the morning after?
Sadly, no.  For the most part, the damage has been done by this point.  However, if you forget your Heddrite and spend the evening at your local watering hole, it will help if you take some right after you get home when you still have alcohol in your system.  It won’t work as well as a “before and after” dose, but it will help.

Is there anything else I should do besides taking Heddrite?
It's definitely a good idea to drink plenty of water when you drink alcohol - getting dehydrated will not help.  And if your aim is a good buzz rather than a serious party night, you can always reduce the risk of hangover symptoms by consuming alcohol with food.

And remember, as one of our favorite radio DJs likes to say, if you drink, don't drive, and if you drive, don't drink!
