Clinically it is best validated for its support of liver recovery following toxic chemical or viral damage. Nine double-blind trials prove PC has lifesaving potential against pharmaceutical and death cap mushroom poisoning, alcoholic liver damage and hepatitis viruses.
Alcohol consumption diminishes enzyme activity, which results in decreased liver content of PC, a key component of cell membranes. This may promote liver injury and possibly trigger fibrosis. PC in Dink ameliorates the alcohol induced enzyme activity and corrects phospholipid and PC depletion, thereby possibly contributing to protection against alcoholic liver injury.
Phospholipids are the building blocks of liver cell walls. Phospholipids are formed in the liver to repair liver cell walls when damaged. Phospholipids have been taken for many years as a supplement by competitive athletes and people suffering from liver damage after malaria and other illnesses.
Dextrose supplies energy to the body. Dextrose competes with alcohol for the metabolising process with the result that the damaging acetaldehyde is formed at a slower rate. Alcohol inhibits gluconeogenises which results in a lack of available energy. Energy is obviously needed to repair the damage we do to our bodies.
High levels of dextrose in the diet prevent alcohol from stimulating the CYP2E1 enzyme’s activity. Induction of CYP2E1 by ethanol and the resulting accumulation of CYP2E1 in hepatic mitochondria is one mechanism by which ethanol causes oxidative stress and alcohol liver disease.

Succinic acid is found in fresh fruit like apples and most living cells. Succinic acid is essential in the energy process in the mitochondria in living cells. Succinic acid gives preference to the speeding up of the breakdown of acetaldehyde, the toxic by-product of alcohol metabolism. This has the result of less damage done by the free radical, acetaldehyde.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid used by the body. L-Glutamine converts to glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that mops up free radicals like acetaldehyde. L-Glutamine converts to an essential amino acid when the body encounters stress situations. L-Glutamine is taken by serious athletes.
Ascorbic Acid – also known as Vitamin C – acts as an antioxidant. The body uses more vitamin C during alcohol consumption than under normal circumstances. We all know the benefits of vitamin C to our wellbeing.
Vegetable Carbon. The black capsules contain a high grade pure Vegetable Carbon. Vegetable carbon acts as an absorbing agent for toxins and impurities we might take. Vegetable carbon also helps to reduce flatulence.
