Alcohol flush reaction, commonly known as the Asian Flush Syndrome, is a condition that causes certain individuals to develop a facial flush or blotchiness when drinking alcohol.
The phenomena has been attributed to many causes over the thousands of years that alcohol has been a key cultural beverage, such as a strong qi energy or a sign of overindulgence, but modern medical science has discovered that it is far more complex, and can even be indicative of a serious health condition.
The asian flush, or the blotchiness that appears over the skin of the face as a result of alcohol is, in reality, caused by a buildup of a chemical called acetaldehyde, a toxin that is created as a byproduct of the breakdown of alcohol in the body. While alcohol flush reaction may seem to be merely a temporary cosmetic condition by many of those that experience it, is has been shown to cause more serious health effects.
There is a statistical link between individuals that experience alcohol flush and heightened rates of esophageal cancer. Almost 36% of individuals of Asian descent exhibit signs of alcohol flush reaction, which can be caused by just one standard drink, making social drinking awkward and embarrassing for many susceptible individuals.
A new IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign, however, is promising to provide individuals that experience alcohol flush reaction with a groundbreaking new solution that can rapidly and effectively eliminate the condition.
NoGlo is a revolutionary new formula that integrates clinically proven ingredients to reduce the damage caused by alcohol in the body and significantly minimize alcohol flush reaction.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the NoGlo solution and find out how it works to help you decide whether it’s a crowdfunding campaign worth backing.
NoGlo is a new encapsulated supplement formula that is intended to be taken daily, or one hour before users plan to participate in drinking alcohol.
The NoGlo formula is the brainchild of Spencer Gordon, a UC Berkeley graduate who specializes in metabolism. During his time at university, Gordon encountered several friends that suffered from alcohol flush reaction, and set out to find an effective treatment for the condition.
The root cause of alcohol flush reaction is a genetic mutation that causes the body to have a deficiency in a key compound that is used to break down acetaldehyde, a highly toxic element that is released in the body as a result of drinking.
Individuals that suffer from alcohol flush reaction can’t break down acetaldehyde, and thus it builds up in their body, increasing heart rate, raising body temperature, and causing nausea, headaches, and dizziness beyond that which is caused by overindulgence in alcohol.
The NoGlo formula is intended to reduce the accumulation of acetaldehyde in the body with a unique formula that contains a unique and powerful combination of vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants that work together to minimize oxidative stress and lower the toxicity of the blood caused by alcohol flush syndrome and acetaldehyde buildup.
NoGlo has been tested in an internal placebo-controlled trial in a facility in Los Angeles, and was conclusively proven to reduce dizziness, nausea, and lightheadedness, as well as minimize body temperature increase, lowering the effect of alcohol flush syndrome.
Most importantly, the formula was proven to be able to lower blood acetaldehyde levels, making it an effective treatment for the condition.
If you experience the “Asian Flush” or alcohol flush reaction and are looking for a simple and effective solution that prevents alcohol from causing your body damage, the NoGlo campaign is definitely worth backing.
