This engineer is bringing a miracle hangover cure to the masses

So, whether it's a full Irish, a kale smoothie or a seven-hour nap, we all have our own favourite hangover remedies.

Sure, we might feel a little better afterwards, but deep down we know that only time will cure that thumping sensation in our heads.

But what if we told you there could be a miracle solution in the very near future?

Well, Sisun Lee, feels so passionate about his hangover cure that he quit his job in order to launch his very own company, Morning Recovery.


Remember your Morning Recovery tonight. Happy Thursday!

On July 5, the startup company will open for business, selling an FDA-compliant hangover remedy.

It all started about a year ago when the 26-year-old travelled back to his home country of South Korea. While he was there, Sisun spent a lot of time drinking and partying with friends.

But instead of suffering through the aches and pains that a night of drinking can bring, his Korean friends introduced him to some popular Korean hangover drinks.

Speaking to Business Insider, Sisun explained how the drinks worked for him: "The next day, I woke up feeling great."

Upon returning to the US, he searched for similar drinks, but found it difficult to find anything of the same standard.

Not content with going back to his old, hungover ways, Sisun instead ordered some Korean drinks online and shared them with friends, particularly his former colleagues at Facebook, who loved them.


Hope your Monday morning is amazing so far! Sending you all the good vibes.

“I tried to import them” and become a distributor, he told Business Insider, but understandably these companies were not interested in going into business with someone with no background in beverages or consumer goods.

But this wasn't going to stop him. Sisun began to research ingredients and soon discovered a herbal compound called dihydromyricetin (DHM) found in the Oriental raisin tree, which has been used as a hangover cure in Asia for thousands of years.

He also learned what it takes to make the perfect hangover drink:

"Purity matters, quantity matters, and you need a lot of other ingredients for hangovers. You lose Vitamin B and Vitamin C in the body. These are all things that are not in Korean hangover drinks."

The remedy, set to be released on July 5, is FDA compliant meaning that all its ingredients are approved food supplements, but Sisun's hope is that one day his remedy will become FDA approved.

If this were to happen, doctors would be able to prescribe the drug as a medicinal cure.

Cheers to that!
