We've all had that feeling after a long night out – you know you've had a little too much to drink and stayed out a little too late, and you're pretty sure you'll be looking haggard and feeling worse in the morning.
Well, a German vodka company says that they have found a solution to mitigate the wear and tear you experience when you drink. The Berlin-based ANTI-EVERYTHING drink companyrecently introduced its anti-aging vodka, a collagen-infused liquor that they are calling a "revolutionary new beauty drink for the nightlife set."
Looks fancy, doesn't it?
The secret to everlasting youth, according to ANTI-EVERYTHING's press release, is a mix of caviar collagen, which is supposed to be the easiest kind of collagen to absorb, and sea buckthorn, a supplement full of vitamin E, lutein, fatty acids and 15 times more vitamins than an orange. The company says that sea buckthorn "activates the body's own mechanisms for producing collagen." But perhaps the real trick to not partying too hard is in the ABV – Munchies reports that the spirit has 16 percent alcohol, which is just a few percentage points more than what is typically found in wine. Vodka usually has around 40 percent alcohol. If this is the correct alcohol content, we can see how it would make you feel like you drank less than you actually did.
Four 100-milimeter bottles will cost you around $56, but we suppose that is a small price to pay for beauty.
"Countless nights out with my girlfriends went hand in hand with feeling guilty about overindulging," said ANTI-EVERYTHING founder Anja Skodda, a biotechnologist. "I wanted to be freed of that feeling and set out to create a drink that combines science with lifestyle for a non-guilty pleasure."
Skodda went on to remind everyone that despite the claimed health benefits, ANTI-EVERYTHING is still an alcoholic drink and should be consumed in moderation.
"But if you are out for a drink, why not choose one with additional benefits?" she said.
