Why does it work?
What is meant by blood alcohol concentration (BAC)?
The concentration of alcohol in the body is called blood alcohol concentration.
That is the total amount of alcohol in the body in relation to the total amount of blood in the body. Men generally require more alcohol than women to achieve the same blood alcohol content level, because men have a higher percent of water than women. The more water a person has, the more alcohol is required to achieve the same alcohol:blood ratio, or blood alcohol content level. Further, studies have shown that women’s alcohol metabolism varies from that of men due to such biochemical factors as different levels of alcohol dehydrogenase (the enzyme which breaks down alcohol) and the effects of oral contraceptives.
How is alcohol absorbed and broken down exactly?
The drunk alcohol enters the bloodstream:
- approximately 2% of the oral mucosa.
- approximately 10% of the gastric mucosa.
- nearly 90% go through the small intestine into the blood.
The alcohol in the bloodstream is decomposed to the following proportions:
- Not more than 5% will be exhaled. This is the “boozey breath”, which is also measured by Breath analyzers.
- About 2% is excreted in the urine.
- About 2 % are sweat out.
- More than 90% of the alcohol are metabolized in the liver.
Detailed description of the degradation:
First a transformation in acetaldehyde takes place.
This toxic substance is also responsible for the most unpleasant side effects as for example the hangover. The conversion of alcohol into acetaldehyde is done by the enzyme system alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH).
In a second step of acetaldehyde is converted to acetic acid. Beide Transformation takes place in the liver.
In a third step, the acetic acid is released back into the body fluid to be transformed into carbon dioxide and water:
acetic acid (C2H3O2) –> water (H2O) + carbon dioxide (CO2).
These substances are excreted by urine, sweat and breath.
The reduction of alcohol by the liver takes approximately, depending on body weight and age from 0.1 to 0.2 per thousand per hour.
How fast can Break Down reduce alcohol?
Not Break Down, but enzymes in the liver reduces the alcohol in the bloodstream.
Break Down supports this process by providing the liver all active substance to reduce the alcohol as fast as possible.
The rate of the alcohol reduction varies from person to person.
Are there any side effects?
No. People with liver damage / liver disease should avoid the consumption of alcohol. The consumption of Break Down is possible for people with liver damage / liver diseases. The product should be consumed every 2 hours.
How long can I keep and drink Break Down?
It is recommended not to consume the product after the expiration date. An opened can should be drunk quickly.
recommendations for use:
- After moderate alcohol consumption in order to be fit in the morning.
- While heavy alcohol consumption, to avoid losing control.
- Before alcohol consumption, to avoid losing control.
- Recommended dosage: 1 can of every 2 hours.
- As a soft drink.
- Vitamin C intake.
