Wine headaches are the worst! I can’t tell you how many people dislike wine (especially reds) because of this annoying side effect. In my last post, I talked about why wine causes headaches, which I know probably left many wondering how to prevent them.
I read that one option is to take a Claritin or an Allegra (stay away from painkillers though!!) a couple hours before drinking wine if you’re prone to getting headaches. But, who really has time for that?! Or, you could drink lots of water in-between glasses. That’s cool and all, but if you’re like me, sometimes you get caught up in the moment and forget your H20 intake. #oopsmybad
Luckily, there’s this magical (ok, maybe it’s not magical) wand that can cure all your troubles. The Wand™ (by PureWine) helps alleviate side effects from drinking wine by removing sulfite preservatives and histamines. Histamines are found in wine and are the root of most wine headaches. Red wine contains considerably more histamines than white wine. White wine contains between 3 to 120 micrograms of histamines per glass, while red wine contains between 60 and 3,800 micrograms of histamines per glass.
So, how’s does The Wand™work? PureWine was nice enough send me a sample to test out.
I know you’re probably thinking…’But, how is it removing these bad boys?’ Well according to the website, The Wand™ uses technology that combines nano-pore beads in a BPA-free plastic pouch and handle. These materials work together to quickly reduce the amount of histamines and sulfite preservatives in your wine. Plus, The Wand™ doesn’t distort the flavor of your wine! Oh, and don’t worry this product is FDA-approved as well.
Overall, I think this product is worth trying out, especially if you get really bad migraines from wine. That’s not the case for me. Wine actually makes me sleepy, but that’s another blog post…lol. The Wand™ comes in an 8-pack for $24.99 or a box of 24 for $69.99. You can purchase online here. I love that’s it’s easy to carry around and it’s small enough that you wouldn’t have to be embarrassed about pulling it out in public. Also, it only takes three minutes to activate and then you can enjoy your wine. On the flip side, it’s not a reusable product.
If I were you, I wouldn’t let histamines keep me from enjoying the amazingness that wine is. Just zap them away with The Wand™. If only getting rid of other negative things in life were that easy…#hmmm
