Pre-Alcohol is the first of its kind, and that’s bound to raise some questions. As scientists, curiosity is in our DNA, so we encourage you to ask your own questions and read our FAQ.
1. What is ZBiotics® Pre-Alcohol Probiotic?
Pre-Alcohol Probiotic is a patented, genetically engineered probiotic that helps you land on your feet the day after drinking alcohol. It’s engineered to break down an unwanted byproduct of alcohol called acetaldehyde – the main culprit in those rough mornings after drinking.
2. How does Pre-Alcohol work?
Pre-Alcohol is designed to replicate the natural process of your liver, but do it in your gut. We took a normal probiotic bacteria you already eat every day, and we bioengineered it to produce the same type of enzyme your liver already produces. That enzyme breaks down acetaldehyde – an unwanted byproduct of alcohol that forms in your gut when you drink.
Your liver does not have access to your gut. But by putting Pre-Alcohol directly in your gut, the goal is to augment your body’s natural ability to digest acetaldehyde while you drink and while you sleep – helping you make the most of the next day. Just remember that Pre-Alcohol does not affect intoxication or make alcohol safer to drink, so always drink responsibly.
3. When do I drink Pre-Alcohol?
When you're drinking. The earlier the better.
Pre-Alcohol's probiotics need time to “wake up” in your gut, so we say the earlier the better if you can remember it. We drink Pre-Alcohol just before going out – right before our first drink. But Pre-Alcohol should be active if you drink it any time during the day or evening, so a few hours before drinking, right with your first drink, or even if you’ve already enjoyed a round or two, go for it.
Cheers to Tomorrow
Whether you present Pre-Alcohol as a company party favor or a drinking-related gift at birthday, expect a thank you the next day.
