What You Should Know About Those Asian Flush Treatments
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Your Asian flush treatment is right around the corner! The truth is that many people are learning to treat their Asian flush with antacids like Pepcid and Zantac. However, there has been little research into the long-term effects and exactly how much to take, so there are some things you should be aware of.

First, how do antacids work as an Asian flush treatment? They contain things known as H2 blockers, which are antihistamines. They work to stop the overproduction of gastric fluid in the stomach, which keeps you from getting acid stomach. They have the added side effect of also slowing do the metabolism of alcohol and working as an Asian flush treatment. Why? As we digest alcohol, a byproduct called acetaldehyde is created. It's poisonous so there's no wonder that when we overload on it, we turn red, get dizzy, and have the red, flushing reaction associated with Asian flush.

So now lots of young Asian party go-ers are turning to antacids. However, there something you should know. Some studies have linked those with Asian flush with a great risk of cancer. Why? It's the acetaldehyde again. Of course, the frequent buildup of any sort of poison is a potential health risk, so why people with Asian flush? Well, those who don't have the condition are normally able to convert this poison into vinegar and digest it without a problem. However, if you've got Asian flush, and more so if you take antacids to treat it, you could be at risk for cancer. You see, even though antacids work as an Asian flush treatment, they don't change the makeup of your body. They don't allow you to break down the acetaldehyde properly, so you are unknowingly exposing yourself to this poisonous substance. However, the good news is that these studies are inconclusive. After all, I think twinkies have been linked to cancer at one time or another.

So are there any other choices for Asian flush treatments? Sure, there are some individuals out there that swear carbohydrates or sugar supplements work, but they seem to be few and far between. There's a few name brand tonics out there that also claim to cure hangovers. I have yet to hear of anyone trying them. Another product out there that's caught quite a bit of attention is an e-book that can supposedly teach you to control and eventually cure your Asian flush. The details of how this works are unclear because of copyright laws, but many people are talking about it in the forums. It may be a reliable alternative as an Asian flush treatment.
