Asian Flush Relief - Mythbusting So - Called Cures
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are a lot of different names for Asian flush, such as alcohol flush reaction and Asian blush. Whatever you call it, finding Asian flush relief is an important thing for any social situation. Having a rosy face is very embarrassing if you are out for drinks with your friends, and you may experience other symptoms, like difficulty breathing and sweats.

Because it is called Asian flush, it is easy to dismiss the problem as simply an exaggeration or even a term used to make fun of Asians who cannot hold their alcohol. The Asian flush is a very real problem for many people throughout the world.

There are a lot of solutions that people try to get around Asian flush, most of which are simply hype and aren't effective at all. For example, one of the ‘solutions’ that many people use is to eat bread prior to drinking alcohol. The argument is that the bread will soak up the alcohol, preventing it from having any effect on you.

The logic of this is pretty slim. Yes, bread soaks up liquid, but even if this works for alcohol, you just end up with bread soaked with alcohol in your stomach. This doesn't get rid of the alcohol and so it cannot stop the impacts of Asian flush. Some people have reported that this is a successful approach. However, this effect is probably more the placebo effect rather than the bread actually helping to solve your problem.

Another argument for getting around Asian flush is simply to drunk more. This is a really bad idea. You cannot build up a tolerance for Asian flush in the same way that you can build up a tolerance for alcohol or even some types of poison. Not only does this approach not get around Asian flush, but it can also be dangerous. In some cases the Asian flush can even be life threatening.

Some people have also experienced success from increasing their sugar intake, while others use antacids. Both of these approaches work for some people, but for many people it isn't very effective. There are various products that claim to cure it, but it's difficult to tell paid advertisements from real reviews.

If you are looking for Asian flush relief, you need to make sure that the advice you go with is well-researched and reliable. Reviews are one thing to consider, and getting the advice of a professional may also be advisable. If you can get around Asian flush, then social situations are much less stressful, and you have the ability to enjoy yourself much more.
