I would always get asian glow even after having one beer. After taking Essential AD2 for a few days, I would still get a little bit red but my head wasn't throbbing anymore and I didn't feel like dying. After a few more weeks on Essential AD2, I feel almost perfectly normal and can actually go out to bars with my friends without worrying about my glow.

- Jason W.

I always feel really sick when I drink on nights out and I decided to buy Essential AD2 once people were concernned about my intense rashing after a few drinks. It has helped reduce these symptoms and also make me feel like i am doing what I can to reduce the dangers of drinking when I have to at social events! Would recommend and I am buying another bottle now!
