Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't make it.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Kanzo by Kowa is based on shijimi clams, and got a good score for its ingredients. They include 46 milligrams of curcumin from autumn turmeric, ornithine, alanine, liver extract and B vitamins B1, B2, B6, and niacin, among others.


But its strong, sour aroma, medicinal flavor, and bitter aftertaste were not appealing. Some may find it hard to finish.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Taisho Pharmaceutical's Lipovitan Alchovert has 20 milligrams of curcumin, 75 milligrams of pork liver extract, and lactic acid bacteria; but other than that, the ingredients are unremarkable.


It is really pineapple-y, with the same sweet and sour flavor of juice. But it's also viscous and the sweetness is rather artificial. Our tasters were divided.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Ukon No Chikara "Super" from House Wellness Foods contains vitamins B1, B2, B6 and niacin. Its highlights are 40 milligrams of curcumin from autumn, purple, and spring turmeric, which also provides bisacurone.


The four B vitamins are nice, but it has less bisacurone than the "Super MAX" version. It's also bitter - really bitter - despite a refreshing, light aroma. Even the slight sour-sweet flavor is erased by a bitter aftertaste.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Fine Japan presents Golden Shijimi-Turmeric-Liver Drink. The score for ingredients was really high: 4.9 out of five! This includes 600 milligrams of liver hydrolyzate, 30 milligrams of curcumin, 37 milligrams or ornithine, and vitamins C, B1, B2 and B6.


So with all this going for it, you know its Achilles' heel must be drinkability. It has a raw, fishy odor, and is extremely bitter with a flavor that lingers on the tongue. It will be hard for some to get down a full bottle, but the ingredients are so good, you may want to try.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Taiho Pharmaceuticals' Solmack 5 Pre-Drinking is a medicated product with four types of drugs. It also offers 200 milligrams of turmeric extract, ginseng and perilla.


All the taste-testers agreed that it tasted like ume plums, with a sweet and sour flavor. The smell was good, but it was hard to swallow.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Urso Ukon from Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharmaceuticals was highly rated for unique ingredients, but got low scores for smell and flavor. It's a medicated product with five drugs, including ursodeoxycholic acid, which promotes liver function, in addition to 20 milligrams of turmeric extract.


It smells strongly cooling, like minty herbal medicine, which divided our tasters. The flavor itself is light but the aftertaste is an unbalanced mix of sour and sweet.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Another from Taisho, this Solmack Gold Digestive Drink is medicated as well. It contains 10 drugs for a high score in ingredients, including 600 milligrams of turmeric. Some of the other highlights are licorice, Isodon japonicus, and cardamom.


But the smell of the herbal medicine was so strong it may put you off. The drugs' bitterness lingers in the aftertaste too. If you can't deal with herbal medicines, forget it.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Solmack Digestive Drink from Taisho, like the others in this line, has good ingredients and a regrettable taste. Let's start with the good: seven drugs including turmeric, ginseng, and herbs like licorice, Isodon japonicus and carrot extract. It got our second-highest score for ingredients, after Solmack Gold.


But it smells kind of spicy! A strong cooling feeling spreads over the palate when you drink it, and the aftertaste just won't quit.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Shijimi-chan Honpo brings us Shijimi Extract Drink Liver Helper. The 200 milligrams of ornithine comes from 400 milligrams of shijimi clam extract- and that's what it tastes like. The strong fishy odor makes you hesitate before drinking. The ocean smell will also linger in your nose after you down it, and you'll be reaching for a glass of water.


But with vitamins C, B2, B6 and niacin, in addition to the shijimi power, you may want to hold your nose and take the plunge.

Introducing the Expert Who Lent Us His Knowledge

Masashi Matsunaga

Ph.D. from Showa Medical University, Kyoto University


Former Vice Chairman of the National Federation of Food Industry Councils and Former Chairman of the Hokkaido Food Industry Council, Dr. Matsunaga is chairman of the NPO Institute for Genetic Nutrition, visiting professor at Hokkaido Bunkyo University, and on the committee of the FMI Promotion Headquarters at Hokkaido University. 


He specializes in the research and development of nucleic acids as food materials. His research has been presented at the Japanese Society of Pathophysiology and Nutrition, the International DNA and Genome Conference, the International Cancer Society, the International Vitamin Society, and the Asian Nutrition Society. 


His current work involves the potential of salmon milt for use in cosmetics, hair restoration, wound care, and environmental toxin removal. His publications include "Which Drink? When to Drink? Energy and Nutrition Drinks" with Makiko Fukano, registered dietician.

How We Tested the Hangover Prevention Drinks

How We Tested the Hangover Prevention Drinks

We put each of the Japanese hangover prevention drinks through two tests to judge ingredients and drinkability. Keep in mind that some of these are soft drinks, while others are medicated.

Test ① Evaluation of Ingredients

Test ① Evaluation of Ingredients

First we looked at ingredients. For the medicated ones, since they have a recognized beneficial effect of some sort, we started from a baseline of 3.5 points. Soft drinks began with three points and went up or down from there.


We considered:

  • Vitamin blend and amount
  • Amount of liver extract
  • Presence of both curcumin and ornithine
  • Use of autumn turmeric and regular turmeric
  • Amount of any drugs (medicated products)

All Products Passed, but They Have Different Focuses

All Products Passed, but They Have Different Focuses

All of the products clearly were created to offer good ingredients to support liver function. There were none where we could say they failed to live up to their product's goals.


So, our decision was instead divided by what type of ingredients they had. We looked at the amount of vitamins included, and whether curcumin and ornithine (which complement each other) were both present.


Golden Shijimi-Ukon-Liver Drink by Fine Japan, with four types of vitamins (C, B1, B2, B6,) 600 milligrams of liver extract, curcumin and ornithine was our top scorer.


We ranked drinks that offered vitamins in addition to liver support more highly, since you deplete vitamins when consuming alcohol. If you want the most effective ones, choose from the medicated products or ones with well-balanced ingredients.

Test ② Drinkability

Test ② Drinkability

Next we did a taste-test. 10 of our staff tried each one, with an emphasis on aroma, taste, and aftertaste. We gave scores out of five points.

The Taste of Clams May Not Appeal to Everyone, but Turmeric Should be Fine for All

The Taste of Clams May Not Appeal to Everyone, but Turmeric Should be Fine for All

Unfortunately, and maybe not surprisingly, shijimi clams smell like... clams. The fishy odor couldn't be masked by any of the products that contained this extract, so in spite of the nutrition, some of us couldn't stomach those drinks.


Turmeric, however, didn't seem to affect the flavor even in large amounts. It was especially nice in carbonated or sour drinks. For shijimi, you may want to stick with a pill form.


Remember that only the medicated products have been proven to have some effectiveness, while the soft drinks are non-regulated supplements which may or may not work. Keep this in mind when deciding whether or not to hold your nose and down them.


The products in our ranking were selected by the mybest editorial department, not experts. We do not guarantee results.

How to Choose a Japanese Hangover Prevention Drink - Buying Guide

Our expert, Dr. Masashi Matsunaga, gave us general advice for choosing a hangover prevention drink. However, he did not help us pick or rank the products in this article specifically.

Get Ingredients That Help With What Causes a Hangover

The main hangover symptoms for most people are headache and nausea. These are principally caused by acetaldehyde, which is produced as alcohol decomposes. Let's look at some ingredients that can help with the breakdown of acetaldehyde.

Turmeric (Curcumin) Prevents Headaches and Nausea

Turmeric (Curcumin) Prevents Headaches and Nausea

Turmeric, synonymous with hangover prevention drinks, supports liver function. The curcumin in it stimulates bile secretion to help break down alcohol and acetaldehyde. Take some before drinking for more efficient alcohol decomposition.


You'll also notice "autumn" and "spring" turmeric. Autumn turmeric has more curcumin, while spring turmeric is rich in minerals and essential oils that help regulate the gastrointestinal tract.

Shijimi Clams (Ornithine) Promote the Liver's Metabolic Function

Shijimi Clams (Ornithine) Promote the Liver's Metabolic Function

Shijimi clams are a great source of ornithine, an amino acid that improves the liver's functioning. It decomposes and removes the ammonia that causes reduced energy production and leads to fatigue. If you have to work early the day after drinking, you may want to look for drinks with shijimi clams.


Ornithine can also activate alanine, which breaks down the acetaldehyde that causes headaches and nausea.

Many people have ideas about when to take a hangover prevention cure, but if you get a drink that is meant to help your liver, drink it before consuming alcohol. Alcohol is first broken down from acetaldehyde into acetic acid, then turned into carbon dioxide and water and excreted from the body. 


The acetaldehyde that isn't completely decomposed goes into your bloodstream, and that's what causes you to feel hungover. Drinking a hangover prevention drink 30 minutes before consuming alcohol will prepare your liver to function more efficiently.

Look for Included Vitamins

Look for Included Vitamins

Vitamins support the breakdown of acetaldehyde. But most of us don't consume enough vitamins while drinking. It's a good idea to pair your booze with some salad or veggie sticks! But it's even faster to supplement vitamins through one of these drinks.


We recommend one that has three to four B vitamins in particular.

Masashi Matsunaga
Showa Medical University, Kyoto University, Ph.D.
Masashi Matsunaga

Vitamins that are used up when you drink alcohol need to be replaced. Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 especially will become depleted. B vitamins help to break down alcohol, so supplementing them before drinking can improve the alcohol decomposition process.

Get a Hangover Prevention Drink With a Taste You Can Stomach

Get a Hangover Prevention Drink With a Taste You Can Stomach

The taste of these varies greatly. Most are not something you'd drink just for their flavor, but those with large amounts of shijimi clam or liver extract in particular have strong odors.


Turmeric-infused drinks often are refreshing and citrusy. However, some are thick and syrupy-sweet. They range in size from 1.7 to four ounces. It would be a waste to get one that is so unpalatable that you can't finish it. Check our evaluations, and consider your own preferences.

Now, How About Something to Cause a Hangover?

Now, How About Something to Cause a Hangover?

You probably wouldn't have read this article if you didn't like alcohol! Here are some great drinks you should check out.

Summary

We all know that drinking to excess isn't good for your health or your life in general. But if you know you might overindulge, give one of these products a try to stave off a hangover. Even if you only drink in moderation, they're a good way to protect your liver and help you not feel sluggish the next day.

They might not even be jellies at all but jams and preserves instead. Keeping these things in mind, we’ve come up with a list of our favorite healthy jellies available online, including our top pick by Crofter's. We've also prepared a handy buying guide with extra tips from nutritionist Kara Swanson.
