NOHO: The Hangover Defense--Does It Really Prevent Your Hangover?

​​Getting wasted while watching a concert is pretty commonplace, and if you're like me, then drinking makes even the most boring show a little more bearable.

But, inevitably, I'd have to be productive the next day at work - -something a hangover doesn't help.

That's why this past weekend's Super Bowl (also, not coincidentally, The Super Bowl of Drinking, if you will) was the perfect time for my friends and I to test out NOHO: The Hangover Defense, a dietary supplement recently introduced to the Valley to prevent hangovers.

The claim is this: NOHO uses natural ingredients to balance out vitamins and minerals your body may have lost during drinking, and it doesn't contain stimulants, caffeine or sugar.

Heck, if a crunk juice aficianado like Lil Jon likes to Tweet about itit's worth a try.

I enlisted two of my buddies to try the hangover prevention with me, and we got to drinking. They chugged beers all day, while my weapon of choice was Smirnoff Ice, the malt liquor notorious for plaguing me with headaches the morning after drinking it.

​Before we started imbibing, we took our first shots. You're supposed to drink one shot before you drink and then, if you drink a lot for what you can normally handle, another before you go to bed.

I don't think I'll ever forget the horrid taste of NOHO. It sort of reminded me of cough syrup mixed with a sour liquified Jolly Rancher -- it was not pleasant at all. If you're going to use this product, I recommend plugging your nose before downing the shot -- that's the only way to make it bearable. The guys agreed it was not tasty, but we all drank enough throughout the day that we took a second shot before bed.

I am pretty much guaranteed to get hangovers after nights of drinking, and when I woke up, I really felt like I hadn't had any alcohol the night before. I didn't drink any water the night before, just alcohol and the NOHO shots, so I was surprised to feel as if I had been hydrating the entire night. As for the boys, one of them woke up perky and said he felt super-refreshed, while the other was also hangover-free.

Each shot of NOHO costs $3.49 before tax, which means preventing your hangover can be just as costly as getting a drink. It's a lot quicker than chugging glasses of water all night, though. They're available at Circle K, and you can log on to www.nohodrink.com for more info.

Okay so first off let me tell you what kind of drinker I am. I like to drink alot to get the fun of the night flowing but usually if I drink 3 beers I am hungover the next morning. Well I found out about No-Ho and decided to try it, and not only try it, but put it to the ultimate test. I bought 2 shots of No-Ho, 1 for before and 1 for after, and I started mt journey. My friends and I had a great party with shots, beer, etc. and in all I ended up drinking about 11 beers. That's right! 11 beers, for someone who usually drinks 3 and wants to die the next morning, that's an achievement! I took 1 no-ho before my first beer and 1 after my 11th beer. I woke up 4 hours later and thought I was seriously going to have a heart attack or worse. BUT then I woke uo 4 hours after that (8 hours in all) and felt fine! Here is my point: No-Ho works amazingly! BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE ABLE TO GET ATLEAST 8 HOURS OF SLEEP! Good luck guys! You should alteast try it!!! At first I was like "This sh** is't gonna work for sh**!" Then I tried it and was like "DAMN!!"

PLEASE DO NOT DRINK NOHO!!! IT HAS 100% SODIUM. IF YOURE A STUPID IDIOT THAT DOESNT KNOW HOW BAD HAVING SODIUM IS, LET ALONE 100% IN JUST ONE SHOT PLEASE USE GOOGLE AND LEARN. Everything we consume has sodium, so if you take 2 of these or even one, you will be between 200-400% sodium for the day. That will kill you much faster than tequila.

NOHO was a joke.. WAIST OF MONEY!!  Come on people how do you prevent a hangover by taking a drink before you go out and drink?  When do I pee?????  I guess you don't so it stays in your system...  LOL  or recycle your pee like man vs. wild...    POINT BLANK - NOHO = JUNK...

ha! funny to see this on here. my friend just emailed me this article...she bought us some NOHO last week at the store before going out. i thought she was an idiot and wasting money but we were shocked and pleased to find it worked! katy thought it tasted a little sweet too like the author here, but i actually didnt mind the taste. for someone that cant drink like she used to in her early 20s and gets bad hangovers, i'll definitely be trying noho from here on out :-) although im kind of sad to see other people seem know about this. i thought we discovered a hidden gem lol
