Rapid Recovery contains High Potency Vitamins and Amino Acid in a Therapeutic dose.
Originally trialled in 200ml of water it does have an unusual taste.
Further studies have shown that Rapid Recovery is best mixed thoroughly in around 20ml of a flavoured beverage and washed down with the beverage of your choice.
Take the first dose when you finish drinking and the next dose when you wake up.
HOW DOES RAPID RECOVERY WORK?
Rapid Recovery does the job of the liver.
The liver breaks down alcohol so it can be excreted. However the Liver becomes unable to do this after a few drinks so Rapid Recovery does the job of the liver by removing the toxins (Acetaldehyde) that cause hangovers.
Alcohol lasts in the body for 12-14 hours so TWO DOSES ARE NECESSARY. One at the end of drinking and one when you wake up at least 4 hours apart.
Can be made up before you go out so it is ready to take.
DON’T LET A GREAT NIGHT OUT RUIN THE NEXT DAY

HANGOVERS VS DEHYDRATION
The perception that a hangover is merely due to dehydration is a myth that has been propagated by the manufacturers of rehydration products (remember that both alcohol and caffeine will cause a small degree of dehydration, but not enough to cause hangover symptoms).
The best scientific evidence to date, is that the main cause of hangover is the accumulation of a toxic substance called acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde accumulates because the liver cannot remove it fast enough and it travels to the brain causing the symptoms of hangover.
Rapid Recovery assists the liver to remove acetaldehyde by detoxing both the liver and the brain. You can read more on our website (particularly our scientific study). If you still don’t believe me try comparing your hangovers on two occasions, once using rehydration and once using Rapid Recovery.
Another way to see if you are dehydrated is to weigh yourself at the end of an evening drinking then again in the morning. The difference in weight will equal your degree of dehydration. Try drinking any rehydrating drink and see if your hangover is cured. To calculate your level of dehydration you take the difference in your weight from the night before and the morning eg. if you weighed 70kg at night and 69kg in the morning, the difference is 1kg.This is your level of dehydration, 1kg. To rehydrate you need to drink 1 litre of water (it’s just as good as any marketed product) but it wont cure your hangover!
