Asian Flush Prevention: Best Way to Prevent Alcohol Flush Reaction
September 26, 2019
If you've ever experience Asian flush also known as Alcohol Flush Reaction, you know how embarrassing and irritating it can be, especially if you're a social drinker. As you may already know, this condition involves red facial and body flushing, accompanied by other side-effects like nausea, irregular heart beats and vomitting.
To say goodbye to Asian flush and it's unpleasant symptoms, start with these changes today.
- Reduce acetaldehyde build up. Asian flush sufferers have a difficult time breaking down this toxin and it leads to the aforementioned symptoms. The most effective way to metabolize acetaldehyde is to boost an antioxidant in your body called glutathione. Treatment with NAC, Milk Thistle, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C are great ways to boost glutathione levels.
- Use Histamine-2 blockers. The accumulation of acetaldehyde causes facial flushing by releasing histamines, a natural compound found in our bodies. Antihistamines like Pepcid AC, Zantac, and Zyrtec work by blocking those histamines, therefore reducing the red glow.
- Apply makeup before going out. Facial flushing occurs because of vascular expansion and blood flow. Blemish balm (BB) creams and tinted moisturisers are great at ensuring capillaries are hydrated and flexible and encourage the dissipation of blood from the surface of the skin. This will only help reduce the surface level symptoms without affecting the underlying cause.
- Take Aspirin beforehand. A small study in 1987 proved Aspirins effectiveness in reducing alcohol-induced flushing. This method will only work in small amounts but it is important to note that it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN AND ALCOHOL TOGETHER as it can cause or worsen ulcers, heartburn or stomach upset.
Understanding What Causes Asian Flush
In our previous article, we go into detail about what causes Asian flush. To sum it up, Asian flush is a result of one's inability to efficiently break down ethanol (a chemical name for booze). Because of this, an extremely toxic byproduct of ethanol called acetaldehyde builds up and causes Asian flush. In a normal person, acetaldehyde would be metabolized into acetic acid which is similar to vinegar and completely harmless.
