Sisun Lee, a former Tesla engineer, believes he's found the cure to your hangovers, and he's launched a new company to prove it. On July 5, his startup Morning Recovery will begin selling an FDA-compliant hangover cure. He hopes to one day get FDA approval.
The key ingredient, according to the work of Dr. Jing Liang, a UCLA researcher who has published papers on herbal remedies for hangovers, is dihydromyricetin (DHM), an herbal compound found in the Oriental raisin tree and rattan tea that has been a component in herbal hangover cure drinks in Asia for thousands of years. The compound boasts anti-hepatotoxic properties which help detoxify the body after alcohol poisoning.
