DALLAS, Apr 3, 2012/ — For those of you who are celebrating the NCAA championships, there is a better news other than your team is winning.
There is a new product in the market that helps prevent hangovers. MERCY, a new caffeine-free and naturally flavored, functional beverage custom blend of amino acids, anti-oxidants and vitamins.
Mercy is formulated to replenish key nutrients and jump-start the body’s natural defenses, helping stave off dreaded hangover symptoms like headache and nausea. It is also the only hangover-prevention drink that contains B1, a vitamin proven to help offset alcohol’s negative effects.
Mixed with alcohol or served on its own, Mercy helps neutralize the dangerous alcohol by-product acetaldehyde and unlike many other functional beverages, Mercy is cold-filled and canned, which preserves the drink’s vitamins and nutrients by shielding them from heat and light.
Each 8.4-ounce can of citrus-flavored Mercy, consumed during a night out, will counter the after-effects of up to five alcoholic beverages. With only 60 calories per can, Mercy appeals to health-and weight-conscious consumers. Launched in May 2011, Mercy is available in select bars, restaurants, nightclubs and hotels in major cities and via www.drinkmercy.com.
Mercy already has a celebrity following. RHONY star Kelly Bensimon was the latest celebrity spotted using Mercy – the list also includes Jay-Z Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeremy Lin, Emma Roberts, Pauly D, and Laura Prepon.
