Aside from someone playing acoustic guitar unsolicited at a party, we think there's nothing worse than feeling ropey the day after having a few drinks with your pals. Plus, there's nothing more frustrating than having to cancel that morning yoga class, plans with your family or lacking mental clarity at work the next day. 

While a greasy kebab, dehydration sachets and several cans of coke are our usual go-to remedy, we were stoked when we heard about Myrkl – a dietary supplement that enables you to enjoy a night out without compromising the next day. But does it work? Here's the low down on Myrkl and our verdict. 


How does it work?

Myrkl is the result of over 30 years of research and development by the Swedish company De Faire Medical, which set itself the mission to empower everyone to feel at their best every day. Its first product, Myrkl, is designed with that philosophy in mind, to help you be on your A-game even after enjoying a few drinks with friends.

The secret behind Myrkl's effectiveness is its unique formula containing AB001, a mix of high-performing bacteria, L-cysteine and Vitamin B12 that rapidly breaks down alcohol in the gut before it reaches the liver, meaning you can enjoy your evening without paying the price the next day. Vitamin B12 also reduces tiredness and fatigue, supports red blood cell formation and promotes normal immune system function. Even better, the capsule contains pre and probiotics and is suitable for vegans.

How to take it?

For the best results, take two capsules of Myrkl two hours before drinking, and always drink responsibly.

Who is it for?

If you want to enjoy drinking with friends and feel refreshed the next day, Myrkl is for you.

Our verdict

We've given Myrkl some testing in the name of sound market research and journalistic integrity – so did it work?

To our surprise, these pills really take the edge off having a few drinks the next day, and in some instances, we didn't even remember we'd drunk booze the night before. Many 9am Zoom calls, Saturday morning barre classes and important family dinners were a doddle with the help of Myrkl.

Compared to how we normally feel the day after having a few drinks without the aid of Myrkl, we felt improved mental clarity, productivity and performance, alongside reduced nausea when taking the capsules before drinking. It is, quite literally, a miracle.

Myrkl is £30 for 15 doses and £10 for a trial pack of four doses; buy online at
