How does Rapid-Recovery work?

Interestingly the exact mechanism of the hangover is not fully understood. The hangover is not a simple condition to treat. We believe that the hangover is produced by the toxic effects of Acetaldehyde that accumulates in the brain. Alcohol is broken down in the liver by alcohol dehydrogenase it forms the toxic acetaldehyde. This would normally be broken down by acetyl dehydrogenase but due to the high levels the body cannot cope. This excess is believed to cause the all too familiar symptoms of the hangover.
