Shockingly, I've recently learned that the U.S. federal government is actively blocking the public from learning about an herbal molecule from licorice root that can be added to alcoholic beverages to dramatically reduce the liver toxicity caused by alcohol consumption.
The liver protective effects of this plant-based molecule are astonishing, yet the TTB (which regulates alcohol) is demanding this molecule be censored from public knowledge and not mentioned on alcohol labels.
The trade name for the molecule is "NTX" and it's a combination of a licorice root extract plus a functional sugar molecule. It has already been awarded a patent as a liver protective substance, and it has the potential to help prevent tens of thousands of acute liver toxicity cases each year that are derived from alcohol consumption.
Isn't it astonishing that the U.S. federal government doesn't want to make alcohol safer to consume?
