“I think instead of Asian glow, it just looks like you ran a lap.”
"Asian glow" is also known as "Asian flush" and impacts 36% of East Asians. It's a result of an inherited deficiency in the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase.
The acetaldehyde doesn't break down and instead accumulates in the body, causing facial flushing, nausea, and faster heartbeats.

While it's not scientifically proven to work and isn't specifically made to prevent Asian glow, a friendly bartender said it might do the trick. Our best theory is that it counteracts Asian glow because it doesn't have histamines in it and it's super distilled. (Again, we're not scientists.)
