What is hangover pill Myrkl and how does it work? | The Sun

WE'VE all been there.

One beer turns into two, two into four and before you know it, it's the next morning and you're hugging the toilet bowel.

Here we go through everything you need to know on the new tablets and how they work.

What is Myrkl?

Myrkl is a pill that you can take before you drink.

It costs £30 for 30 tablets, which would be 15 uses.

The creators say it is 100 per cent natural and vegan and is based on a mix of high performing bacterias enriched with L-cysteine and Vitamin B12.

The journal Nutrition and Metabolic Insights reported that, in tests, subjects had 70 per cent less alcohol in their blood an hour after two vodkas — which may have helped the boozers in hit 2009 comedy The Hangover.

Håkan Magnusson, of Swedish inventors de Faire Medical, said: “Two drinks is enough to stop you feeling fresh in the morning.

“I hand it out to my friends when I go out for a drink and they always tell me next day they feel great.”

Myrkl is not suitable for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding or under the age of 18.

How does it work?

You take two pills at least one hour and up to 12 hours before drinking.

Once you take the pills the bacteria, and the l-cycteine B12 activate in the gut before the booze reaches the liver.

The alcohol is then broken down into water and carbon dioxide.

Acetaldehyde and acetic acid is also broken down by the liver.

Then the B12 is set to help you feeling refreshed.

Experts say that without the pills, the booze is broken down by the liver and creates acetaldehyde.

This then produces acetic acid.

It's acetic acid that is responsible for the ill-effects of alcohol on your body.

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