If you’ve been avoiding a night on the town due to the concerns about dealing with a hangover the next day, you’re in luck. With the introduction of a herbal supplement called PartySmart, you may be able to party all night long without fear of pesky hangover symptoms the next day.
In an article from Anthropology & Medicine, Laurent Pordié discusses the introduction and marketing of PartySmart. This drug claims to protect the liver and prevent alcohol-related hangovers. Created by The Himalaya Drug Company in India in 2005, PartySmart should be consumed 30 minutes prior to drinking alcohol to prevent common hangover symptoms such as headache, nausea, irritability, and fatigue. However, please keep in mind that PartySmart will not make it safe to operate a motor vehicle while driving. You’ll still be considered legally intoxicated, you just won’t experience hangover symptoms the following day.
PartySmart is aggressively promoted in clubs and pubs throughout India, even though there’s been controversy over the portrayal of promoting alcohol consumption amongst the middle classes in such a devout country. To work around this issue, executives were forced to revise their strategy by promoting the product as ‘targeting liver disorders’, thus ridding themselves of the moral repercussions of alcohol consumption.
In the United States, PartySmart is available online through retailers such as Amazon.com. With summer fast approaching, now would be a great time to give this unique miracle pill a try.
