Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

People searching for an Asian flush remedy have been confused and bombarded by ridiculous advertisements with promises of containing an Asian flush remedy. Tonics and pills sold over the internet while they may produce results in certain individuals do not always meet work on everybody because of the different make up of each individuals body.

To find an Asian lush remedy you need to understand what causes Asian flush. The lack of an enzyme called ALDH2 which is in part responsible for the breakdown of alcohol is the root of the problem. As alcohol is metabolised in the body, a byproduct called acetaldehyde is then produced. This byproduct is poisons and must be further broken down into things which out body can properly digest. however, because individuals with Asian flush do not have sufficient stores of ALDH2 in their bodies, this poisonous acetaldehyde builds up and causes the reactions associated with Asian flush - red face, dizziness, hives, and nausea.

So now that we understand what causes Asian flush we can move on to finding a remedy. Most tonics and wonder drugs on the market work in the same way as your typical OTC antacid like pepcid or Zantac. The four most common antacids (containing H2 blockers) which you can buy without a prescription are Tagamet-HB, Pepcid-AC, Axid-AR, and Zantac-75 with Pepcid AC having the strongest active ingredient (famotidine) and therefore being the most common choice of Asian flush remedy.

How to use Pepcid and other antacids an Asian flush remedy varies from person to person, and for each situation. It goes without saying that age, height, and weight come into play, as with the amount of alcohol you drink. Some people have even said that the type of alcohol they drink may have an effect on how serious their Asian flush is and how well the antacids work. Read carefully on the box about how long the antacid should work and how many you can safely take in a space of time. If you're planning on partying all night, one antacid may not be enough, especially with the large amount of alcohol affecting the number of time you go to toilet. Though in general, overuse of antacids won't lead to any immediate or serious health risks, over time, it is possible to develop a dependency to keep stomach acid down. Is the this way to cure Asian flush worth the risk of acid stomach?

The type of Asian flush remedy you choose to cure Asian flush will depend on your lifestyle and how drinking relates to it. If you are unsure about how well an Asian flush remedy will work or of it's dangers or long-term effects be sure to consult a professional physician.

Pepcid AC is good, but it doesn't fight the symptoms of Asian glow, i mean acetaldehyde build-up. I'd better recommend NoGlo.
