The Pre-Bar Bar is a delicious granola bar that helps to prevent a hangover. Eaten before or while you drink, the ingredients in the bar help combat some of the toxins from alcohol that make you feel terrible in the morning. The Pre-Bar Bar is a delicious way to start your night off right, and start your next day off strong.
How does it work?
There are two important ingredients in The Pre-Bar Bar that make it successful in preventing your hangover. These are turmeric and pepper. Turmeric contains within it something called curcumin, and this is what really does the heavy lifting in helping with your hangover. The pepper is what allows that curcumin to get where it needs to go in your body, it increases the bio-availability of the curcumin. Acetaldehyde is a chemical that your body makes when it breaks down alcohol, and is actually 10-30 times more toxic than alcohol itself. The levels of acetaldehyde are shown to drop when curcumin is available in your body. The issue is that curcumin is not absorbed very well by your body. This is where pepper comes in, a compound in pepper called piperine increases the bio-availability of curcumin by 2000%. Together these two compounds are what break down acetaldehyde and help lessen the chances of you having a hangover.

A great resource to explain how The Pre-Bar Bar works is this video from What I've Learned. The video is about 7 minutes long, references specific studies, and provides a summary of the science behind the bar.
The Pre-Bar Bar is a perfect blend of all natural granola, almonds, honey, turmeric, pepper, brown sugar, and a touch of olive oil. For our peanut butter par, organic peanut butter is used, and dried cranberries are used in our fruit flavor. Ghirardelli melting chocolate coats the bar for a truly wonderful taste.
