    HOW DOES THE HANGOVER PILL MYRKL WORK?

    Alcohol is broken down by the liver into acetaldehyde, which then produces the compound acetic acid in the body.

    This is thought to be behind the tell-tale hangover symptoms.

    però, Myrkl claims to interfere with this process.

    It contains bacteria Bacillus Coagulans and Bacillus Subtilis and amino acid L-Cysteine, which break alcohol down into water and carbon dioxide.

    This means barely any acetaldehyde and acetic acid are made by the liver.

    The pills also contain vitamin B12, which the company claims will leave users ‘feeling refreshed’.

    Two Myrkl pills need to be taken two hours before drinking. It then keeps breaking down alcohol for up to 12 ore.

    The supplement was created by Swedish medical company De Faire Medical (DFM).

    All the ingredients are authorised and recognised as safe by the European Food Safety Agency and the US Food Drug Administration.

    però, it may not leave drinkers totally hangover free as other mechanisms are also involved in hangovers.

    E SE BEVI SOLO SODA, low blood sugar — due to alcohol causing sugar to be lost in urine — and methanol, another fermentation product found in alcoholic drinks, also contribute to feeling unwell after drinking too much.

    Two Myrkl pills need to be taken at least two hours before drinking.

    The supplement — originally developed in the 1990s and ‘perfectedover the past three decades — was created by De Faire Medical (DFM).

    Medics say that those taking the pill will still get ‘some jollinessfrom alcohol if they take the pill.

    But if they are planning to get drunk, it will take longer — forcing Britons to spend more on drinks.

    Mr Magnusson said: ‘Marking the first time in history that a consumer product is demonstrated to effectively and rapidly break down alcohol, we are very excited to be launching this ground-breaking product in the UK and in most European markets.

    Other tablets claiming to help users ditch their hangover are available. But these are usually just packed with vitamins and have not been proven to bring down levels of alcohol in the blood.

    Mr Magnusson added: ‘Moderate social drinking is a huge part of British culture, with the majority of British people heading out each week to enjoy a few drinks together.

    ‘Myrkl’s purpose is therefore to help those regular moderate drinkers to wake up feeling their best the next day, whether they’re a busy working professional, young parents, or seniors who want to maintain an active social life.

    ‘The independent clinical trials prove just how powerful this product is at breaking down alcohol.

    ‘Whilst Myrkl is in no way designed as an excuse to drink beyond NHS guidelines, we are really convinced that Myrkl is a game-changing product for those regular moderate drinkers, and we can’t wait for the British public to try it out.

    The NHS recommends adults drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week, spread across three or more days. This equates to six medium glasses of wine or six pints of beer.

    Dr Dawn Harper, best known for TV show Embarrassing Bodies, said those who take the pill will still get ‘some absorption and some of that jolliness that you experience when drinking alcohol’.

    But she said the product is not for a person who wants to drink to excess.

    Dr Harper added: ‘If you want to go out and get drunk, Myrkl would simply mean that it would take you a lot longer and cost you a lot more. Where I see Myrkl could be relevant is for the huge number of moderate drinkers in the UK.

    DO YOU DRINK TOO MUCH ALCOHOL? IL 10 QUESTIONS THAT REVEAL YOUR RISK

    One screening tool used widely by medical professionals is the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Tests). Developed in collaboration with the World Health Organisation, the 10-question test is considered to be the gold standard in helping to determine if someone has alcohol abuse problems.

    The test has been reproduced here with permission from the WHO.

    To complete it, answer each question and note down the corresponding score.

    YOUR SCORE:

    0-7: You are within the sensible drinking range and have a low risk of alcohol-related problems.

    Al di sopra di 8: Indicate harmful or hazardous drinking.

    8-15: Medium level of risk. Drinking at your current level puts you at risk of developing problems with your health and life in general, such as work and relationships. Consider cutting down (see below for tips).

    16-19: Higher risk of complications from alcohol. Cutting back on your own may be difficult at this level, as you may be dependent, so you may need professional help from your GP and/or a counsellor.

    20 e oltre: Possible dependence. Your drinking is already causing you problems, and you could very well be dependent. You should definitely consider stopping gradually or at least reduce your drinking. You should seek professional help to ascertain the level of your dependence and the safest way to withdraw from alcohol.

    Severe dependence may need medically assisted withdrawal, or detox, in a hospital or a specialist clinic. This is due to the likelihood of severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms in the first 48 hours needing specialist treatment.
