Stave off a Hangover with this Simple Trick!


Consume one teaspoon of active dry yeast (Fleischmann's or Red Star, for example) per drink, right before you start drinking, to stave off drunkenness and hangovers.

Feel free to mix the active dry yeast with yogurt or another food to make it more palatable. I'm thinking of putting it in gel-caps to swallow before each drink.

Active dry yeast has an enzyme in it called alcohol dehydrogenases (ADH), which breaks alcohol molecules down into their constituent parts (Your liver does this same process with the alcohol you've drunk). If you have the ADH enzyme in your stomach when the alcohol first encounters it, the ADH will begin breaking the alcohol down before it gets into your bloodstream.

This will mitigate - not eliminate - the effects of alcohol!
