Intox-Detox™ has been featured in the Mr. Checkout Distributors “What’s Hot” catalog. The move represents the next big step for the growing brand as they move from acclaimed direct-to-consumer success to a retail store near you.
Intox-Detox™ takes a novel approach to a very old problem – the negative after effects of drinking alcohol. No one would argue that alcohol can cause a hangover. Unfortunately, so far the retail space has been dominated by inferior products that make big promises, but never really deliver, according to Intox-Detox™ CEO/Founder Andrew Bennett, who goes on to say:
“We don’t like to name names but, the few competitors we have in the retail channel merely cover up the negative after effects of drinking after the damage is already done. The Intox-Detox approach is to address the root cause preemptively so that you can feel better the next day and protect your body in the process. Anyone can easily get ahold of electrolytes, B vitamins, antioxidants and energy drinks containing caffeine. We wanted to do something totally different and tackle this challenge with real science.”
Rather than addressing dehydration and low energy, Intox-Detox™ purports to use a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and clinically researched supplements to help break down alcohol’s metabolite, known as Acetaldehyde. This nasty little chemical is far more toxic than alcohol itself, says Bennett; and it can cause significant damage to the liver, brain, heart and other organs.
According to www.Intox-Detox.com the liver needs two things to safely eliminate Acetaldehyde from the body – Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase (ALDH2) and the body’s master antioxidant L-Glutathione. Intox-Detox™ provides Japanese raisin, which has been shown in human clinical trials to increase ALDH2, the liver enzyme needed. It also contains Setria® L-Glutathione (recently featured on The Doctors TV show), a patented form of the antioxidant that has been shown to increase blood levels of the substance in humans by 35 percent. Support ingredients Green Tea and Panax Ginseng have been shown in preliminary research to detoxify the liver and help metabolize alcohol, as well as its harmful metabolite Acetaldehyde.
As for the partnership with Mr. Checkout Distributors, “It was a no-brainer for Intox-Detox,” says Bennett. Mr. Checkout is a company that has built a vast network of distribution channels to independent retailers with a large percentage of them in the convenience store and gas station channels. They act as category managers to retail outlets and provide matchmaking services for up-and-coming suppliers of products like Intox-Detox™.
Bennett adds: “First, we went to the people with over 10,000 samples distributed across the US at local bars, concerts, beer and wine tastings and events from San Diego and Las Vegas to Key West and Washington DC. Next, we signed up to sponsor the #32 Go Green Racing team for 2015 to increase market visibility and because NASCAR fans are the most loyal consumers in America. Now, with overwhelmingly positive feedback from thousands of people, the logical move was to partner with Mr. Checkout, one of the best distributor networks in the country, so all our new-found friends can pick up Intox-Detox™ in their local area.”
Based in Port St. Lucie, Florida, Intox-Detox™ is distributed by Food Funktions. Their mission is to develop powerful science-based supplements and functional foods that help people strike the delicate balance between living life to the fullest and staying healthy.
