Whether you've heard of the term "pretoxing" or not, it seems like we all know what it means: taking extra care to maintain healthy habits, particularly in the days leading up to a big party, wedding, beach vacation or whatever other occasion where one knows overindulging is likely. This typically involves getting enough sleep, drinking a lot of water and cutting back on things like processed foods, caffeine and alcohol. Pretoxing also involves "prepping" the body for any upcoming indulgences by getting in some vitamins, eating plenty of fruits and veggies and exercising regularly. These are all great steps and can certainly make the detoxing process afterwards a bit easier.
Pretoxx, a new product from the LES Labs line of natural dietary supplements, is intended to be taken before you drink and helps reduce common hangover symptoms. Unlike other "hangover pills" like Chaser or RU-21, which contain caffeine and pain relievers that put additional stress on the liver, Pretoxx contains only natural ingredients in vegetarian-friendly capsules. These include prickly pear extract, milk thistle and cysteine which work to reduce nausea, dry mouth and loss of appetite. The product also includes a blend of electrolytes to help replenish the body's lost nutrients.
Pretoxx can be purchased online through the LES Labs listing on Amazon or directly from the company website for $18 plus shipping and handling fees. The product will be in stores later this year along with a similar new product called MoodBoost.
