After reading up on these anti-hangover herbal pills called Sobur, I decided to give them a try. My personal experience is in the conclusion, but first I explain the cause of hangovers, and how Sobur (DHM) supposedly deals directly with the root cause of the problem.
The main ingredient in Sobur hangover pills, Dihydromyricetin (DHM) – sometimes also called “ampelopsin” – is a natural extract from the bark of a common asian tree called Cedrus Deodara (and a Japanese tree called Hovenia Dulcis). It’s known as a sacred tree among the locals wherever it grows. It has a long history of being used for many different therapeutic purposes.
The cause of hangover
Hangovers are the result of mainly two things:
- Excess of the GABA neurotransmitter in the brain when you drink, because alcohol basically mimics the GABA neurotransmitter. This results in a lack of GABA the next morning/day because the body produced less GABA when it was overflowing your system in the form of alcohol. This is known as withdrawal symptoms, and as we all know, it’s not very pleasant.
- Acetaldehyde: A compound that forms as the body breaks down alcohol, and is estimated to be 20-30 times as toxic as alcohol itself. This is something the liver really struggles with, and long term overuse of alcohol can damage the liver.
Luckily, there is now a way you can have a wild night, and still wake up feeling pretty good (and also spare your liver the “heavy lifting”), at least according to the promise of Sobur hangover pills.
How DHM cures hangovers (and protects the liver)
The main ingredient in Sobur hangover pills, Dihydromyricetin (DHM), has two main effects in the body:
- It’s a GABA/alcohol receptor inhibitor
- It’s Hepatoprotective (liver helper/healer)
Simply put, DHM goes to the brain and inhibits alcohol to bind to the GABA receptors. This makes the body think it has less GABA available, and thus it starts to produce more than it normally would. This “evens out” or “cancels” the GABA rebound effect, and thus, in theory, also your withdrawal symptoms (studies proving these claims have been performed on both rats and humans).
At the same time, DHM also helps the liver break down the toxin (Acetaldehyde) that comes as a byproduct of alcohol consumption. Two separate scientific studies have shown that DHM not only protects the liver, but also has the ability to actually heal an already damaged liver.
Pretty impressive stuff, right? When I first learned about these things I could not wait to try these “miracle pills” out for myself. Below I share my personal experience with them.
My personal experience with Sobur Hangover pills
I’ll make this short and sweet. Yes, these pills definitely have a positive effect on your hangover, but don’t expect to be fit for a marathon the day after.
Depending on how much you drink, and how many pills you take (I’ll get back to dosing soon), you will still feel the effect of a night out on the body and mind. The best way to describe it is that it feels like the hangover is still there, but it’s dampened down or “in the background”, so it just does not bother you so much.
Personally, I still feel kind of tired even if I take these pills, but I don’t need to spend half the day in bed. I can actually get up at decent hours, and get something out of the day. That would not happen without Sobur after a late night out, so I definitely recommend this product as well worth the money.
The Sobur pills are especially useful if you have something important you need to do the next day, but you still don’t want to turn down your friends for a good time. Drink a little less than usual, take a pill before you go to bed, and the next morning you should be good to go.
What is the correct dosage of Sobur pills?
Of course, this is individual. It depends on your body weight, metabolism and other things. You can experiment with what works best for you. The company behind Sobur claims that 1 single pill (300 mg DHM) is enough to cure most hangovers. I would say this based on my experience as a 175 lbs male:
- 1 pill for a light/medium night of drinking
- 2 pills for binge night and bachelor parties (problem is to remember to take them..:)
Sobur hangover pills side effects?
In my experience there are no side effects from these pills (if taken as advised, after drinking alcohol). If you take them without drinking alcohol I don’t know, cause I never tried. Anyway, it’s a natural herb that is healthy for your body and liver, and compared to the side effects from alcohol itself, whatever you get from these pills will be hard to notice.
