Many Americans suffer from hangovers after having too many drinks and would do anything for a hangover cure. However, while there are many cropping up online and on store shelves every day, one always wonders if they will actually work. Now, there’s a remedy that’s been around for just over a year, and it’s known as the Tesla hangover cure. No, it doesn’t involve driving around in a Tesla. Instead, it was created by a former Tesla manager and so far, it’s been fairly successful, despite the backlash it’s received from the FDA.
What is the Tesla Hangover Cure?
The Tesla hangover cure is known as Morning Recovery and while it hasn’t gotten FDA approval just yet, it does consist of ingredients that have all been FDA-approved. Morning Recovery was created by Sisun Lee, a former Tesla manager, and Misha Frolov, a former product designer for Uber.
Morning Recovery is a dietary supplement that comes in a 3.4-ounce bottle. It has a peach flavor and is intended to be consumed either while a person is drinking alcohol, or within an hour after a person has stopped drinking.
The idea for the remedy came in 2016 when Lee went on vacation to South Korea to visit friends and family. After drinking every night, the family would be up early the next day, ready to face whatever was in store. Lee, on the other hand, suffered greatly from hangover symptoms such as:
Lee quickly found out the secret. His family was drinking a hangover cure that contained dihydromyricetin (DHM). This is an ingredient found in Japanese raisin trees and it helps break down alcohol in the liver.
What the FDA Says About Morning Recovery
The FDA has taken a hard stance against Morning Recovery. They have claimed that a hangover is an illness and as such, should undergo pharmaceutical testing that all drugs have to go through. Also, due to the fact that it’s a drink, the FDA states that it should have to undergo the rigorous food-vetting process as well. To get around this, the two founders rebranded the drink as a dietary supplement, as these products do not have to be tested by the FDA before going to market.
Although Morning Recovery saw great success once it was on the shelves, the FDA did not back down. Within a docket the FDA created in April 2017, the Consumer Healthcare Products Association noted that hangover cures marketed as dietary supplements may not work, and are not in fact, dietary supplements at all. Therefore, consumers should consider them misbranded and be wary about using them.
