I've tried a few of these products out in the past and was always disappointed with the results. After reading about the science behind blucetin I decided to give it a try, and I'm glad that I did. I'm not a big drinker, maybe 5-6 drinks on a heavy (and I mean heavy) night of drinking so the last time I went out I took two tablets before I started drinking, and two when I was finished, just as the directions said. The nice part about blucetin is that they are chewable mints...not some random pill or disgusting shot you have to stomach. I woke up feeling like I actually slept through the night, not that fake "drunk-sleep" I usually get. My head was clear, my stomach and body felt great. One thing to note about Blucetin, and they talk about it on their product, is the clear mind you have while you drink. I'm not the most coordinated person in the world when I'm not drinking, but with blucetin, i noticed i had much better balance and motor control...it was pretty nice actually. All in all, I'll definitely be buying this product again...especially for Labor Day Weekend in Vegas!!!
I have used the product, as instructed, several times now. It works. No hangover. Just take two pills right before drinking and then take 2 more after your done imbibing. I am a big guy, but I had 9 or 10 beers and 3 huge vodka drinks last night. Each vodka cocktail probably contained at least 3 shots, so I was reasonably..."lit up". However, due to taking the BluCetin, I experienced no hangover nor did I have the usual racing heartbeat in bed or unrestful sleep. I am sold. Good product. Does what it claims.
First off, I'm quite skeptical about these types of products. Visions of snake-oil salesmen run through my head. However, I can get a certain type of migraine where alcohol is a trigger and, while I typically refrain from alcohol, I'd like to partake on certain occasions. After reading the UCLA report on how this product was tested and how it changes the way alcohol binds with the brain, thought I'd give it a try.
I was extremely happy and surprised with the results. By taking one prior, one during, and one after alcohol consumption, I not only felt very good the next day, I did not have those alcohol-induced migraines. I am certainly not suggesting that this is a cure for alcohol-induced migraines, everyone is different, but it works for me most of the time. I'm still figuring out BluCetin and how it works. For example, I've found if I don't have on prior to my first drink, it seems less effective.
If you're expecting this to negate 100% of the effects of alcohol, I think you're setting expectations too high. Don't drink and drive thinking your ready to go with BluCetin! If you're looking to feel better after a night of social drinking, it works for me.
Got these as a sample in the mail.. Took 2 tabs (recommended 1-4, taken before/during/after drinking) after 4 beers & 3 glasses of wine last night. Hard to swallow (still unclear of they're chewables or not..they are mint flavored?) Still woke up dizzy, shaky with a headache & craving a Big Mac. Save your money and invest in some electrolyte tablets or emergen-C. I'm a nurse, I must be right :)
