What You Need to Know about Alcosynth
Do you drink alcohol? Alcohol has benefits if taken moderately but if you consumed too much, be prepared for its adverse effects. You may not like what it can do with your head. Hangover is inconvenient and pretty annoying not to mention troubling. There are many tricks so you can lessen hangover if not totally avoid it. It does not end there because alcohol can also provoke aggression and mood swings – all bad things.
If you really enjoy alcohol but hate hangover, loss of control and liver damage at the end of the session, you would wish that there is something close to alcohol without these effects. The good news is that there is a product recently developed as an alcohol alternative. This sounds promising. The alternative is called Alcosynth. Here are some things that you need to know about it:
Alcosynth is made to imitate the positive effects of alcohol but without its devastating after effects. This is developed by Professor David Nutt. It is a version of benzodiazepine which is prescribed to treat anxiety. However, the best part is that it will not cause any withdrawal symptoms. It can make you tipsy but without throbbing head, dry mouth and nausea.
Will it replace the normal alcohol?
According to the developer, Professor Nutt, who was a former adviser on drugs, said that Alcosynth can potentially replace the normal alchohol come 2050. For booze lovers out there, he said that it will be available alongside your usual gin and scotch in the future. The best part is that one can dispense it into the cocktail and you get the same pleasure without the inconvenient hangover and potential damage to the heart and liver – which can save a lot of lives.
What are the issues behind it?
Why is it not in the market already? There is news saying that Alcosynth can have a “seismic effects on public health”. It is still not available especially bars in the United Kingdom let alone here in Singapore. Despite the positive results Alcosynth promises, it faces punitive regulations. The government should not stand in the way of this new alcohol. Regulations need to be encouraging as well as flexible for the health of the people around.
Hopefully this product gets to the market as soon as possible so it can save more lives. This is like e-cigarettes. People should continue to develop products that are actually safer. You get to enjoy it but eliminating the harm it can cause.
