NOTE: Flush sufferers should take at least twice the recommended serving size, starting approximately 15-20 minutes and again 10 minutes prior to the first drink for pre-absorption. Because it is liquid, IntelliShot will absorb more quickly than iTabs. Individual results vary depending on severity.
Yoi Tanabe is a Los Angeles based model you may have seen on NBC’s Deal or No Deal. She also suffers from severe Asian flush, a condition found in approximately half of all Asian drinkers that causes her face and neck to turn beet red after just a sip of alcohol. Ms. Tanabe joined a group of young people to test Cheerz IntelliShot, a new functional shot/mixer that helps prevent morning after headache, nausea, muscle pain and other ‘hangover’ effects by helping the body to naturally process alcohol toxicity. See the surprising results for yourself:
As many as one in two persons of Asian descent possess non-functional copies of the liver enzyme (ALDH-2) needed to process acetaldehyde. Even a single cocktail can lead to Asian flush, a painful and embarrassing condition resulting from acetaldehyde levels shooting up 6 to 20 times that of people with normal ALDH-2. This burst of acetaldehyde triggers facial flushing, elevated heart rate, headache, nausea, dizziness and vomiting.
Although most with this condition view it as a minor inconvenience, it has been suggested that those with alcohol flush reaction may be at higher risk for alcohol related conditions such as liver disease, asthma, and cancer of the esophagus. Among flushers who are heavy drinkers the incidence of upper gastrointestinal tract cancer is about 50 times higher than normal. Higher rates of head and neck cancer have also been noted.
Cheerz combats Asian flush in 3 ways:
1. By helping to slow and reduce the conversion of alcohol into acetaldehyde.
2. By helping to speed the conversion of acetaldehyde into acetic acid.
3. By scavenging unmetabolized acetaldehyde.
It is recommended that flush sufferers take at least twice the recommended serving size, starting approximately 15-20 minutes and again 10 minutes prior to the first drink for pre-absorption. When taken correctly the results can be remarkable:
“When I first heard about Cheerz IntelliShot my mind was filled with doubts. A product that promises no hangover and prevents red flushes from alcohol? It sounded too good to be true, which is why I was excited to take on the Cheerz Challenge and test its effectiveness. During the night out I was amazed that I never suffered from my usual red faced flushing symptoms, which is something that I battled with since I was old enough to drink. I never thought there would be a cure for it, but luckily I was wrong. Next morning I woke up more energized than usual, my skin looking well rested. I am pleasantly surprised by how well it worked, and I am happy to tell you that from now on my nights out will start and end with Cheerz!”

“I’m Asian and though I like to party it can be extremely inconvenient because I couldn’t drink due to the Asian flush and other symptoms which occured even after less than one beer. However, after I tried Cheerz I found myself enjoying my weekends even more without having to worry about looking stupid or becoming so easily sick when I drank. It’s a lot more fun to be a part of everything!”

“I used Cheerz for the Asian flush and it took it away completely. Miracle. All I can say.”
Jon W., Gainesville FL
“Every time I drink I get very flushed and so hot and inevitably wake up the next day in terrible shape! I was amazed when I tried Cheerz (a no side effect solution compared to more radical prescriptions by friends such as Pepcid AC). Cheerz has truly changed my confidence the night of and my constitution for the next day. I just wish I had found it sooner!”
Eric B., Boston MA
“Cheerz is truly amazing! I’m Asian and every time I drink I get the Asian flush really bad, plus a wicked hangover the next day. My face looks like a red apple and feels like it’s on fire. Well not anymore! Now that I take Cheerz when I go out drinking with my friends I don’t suffer from Asian flush OR hangovers at all. My girlfriend even says she likes going out with me more now!”
