Video: Does Chaser Hangover Prevention Really Work?
In the past few months, we've heard a lot about anti-hangover pills like Chaser and RU-21, which promise to let you drink what you want without feeling the effects in the morning. As intriguing as the premise is, we've resisted the urge to cover them. Why, you ask? Because hangovers are part of the circle of life, and nursing yourself back to health is as much a part of the ritual of drinking as monopolizing the jukebox at the bar or vomiting into a girlfriend's purse.
This weekend, however, we found a video of a very scientific experiment where a young man tries to test the validity of Chaser's claims using only wit, spunk and 15 Miller Lites, as well as some post-experiment margaritas. And all of this on a Tuesday! So how does our intrepid explorer fare against the dreaded hangover? Click on the image in this story or right here to watch the video. And don't you worry...we ran right out and bought a box of Chaser so we can conduct some experiments of our own.

Good advice. Another tip is to have some food in your stomach before drinking to help delay absorption of alcohol. Drinking
slowly helps too. Women are affected by alcohol more than men.
A good plan to help detoxify alcohol and prevent a hangover is to take 50 mgs each of B1, B2, B3, 400mcg folic acid,100mcg of
B12, 15-30 mg. of zinc and 300-500 mg of magnesium and a good antioxidant with food before drinking. Also taking 1000mg
Vitamin C every 2 hours is helpful.
I know of someone who swears by 1 tbsp Brewer’s Yeast Powder to clear a hangover quickly should the demon stuff get the
better of you.
