Bellion Vodka with NTX is Easier on the Liver

Bellion Vodka with NTX
In an attempt to make alcohol a little less physically destructive and a little more scientifically advanced, Bellion Spirits came out with a new specialty vodka that uses NTX technology to minimize the damage drinking does to the body.

When infused into a spirit, NTX is supposed to render the drink safer for your liver, DNA, and eliminate much of the oxidative damage caused by throwing a couple back.

So in theory, drinking is now healthy! (Sorta.)

The developers of NTX Technology, Chigurupati Technologies, took more than 10 years to test the damage that drinking can have on our DNA and whether their patented NTX tech can offset those affects. This multi-million-dollar project was done by a group of wicked smart pharmaceutical PhDs.

Their results showed that within only 15 minutes of drinking, oxidative damage occurs to our DNA. This type of damage has the potential to mutate into diseased cells, changing the epigenetic expression of the genes, and boosts the probability of other possible complications such as allergies or even cancer.

Trial testing for NTX in India and the U.S. showed,alcohol infused with NTX technology reduced damage and protected the liver and DNA from alcohol induced stress by up to 93%,” says Harsha Chigurupati, Founder of Chigurupati Technologies.

At its most basic level, NTX is a blend of natural, FDA-approved ingredients including Glycyrrhizin -Licorice Root Extract, Mannitol, and Potassium Sorbate— fancy Bill Nye the Science Guy language for low calorie sugar crystals found in fruit and plants, and white salt.

The taste is undoubtable sweeter than your average vodka, so be prepared for that difference when you take your first drink. Bellion’s expert cocktail makers suggest pairing the mild licorice sweetness of the vodka with citrus or cucumber for a refreshing concoction, or used in a spicy Bloody Mary.

The greater sweetness should also eliminate the need for adding simple syrup or other sweeteners to your cocktails. So with all those calories saved, have a double.

In our opinion, the sweet licorice is hard to get past at first sip— especially if you’re using Bellion for a vodka classic like the Moscow Mule.

Instead, we suggest going spicy and using Bellion in a Hells Bells shot, made with chilled Bellion, a dash of Tabasco, and salt and lime.

And even if the taste throws you off, enjoy the added satisfaction in knowing that while you guzzle, NTX is hard at work to protect you at the cellular level.

Let’s be honest, your liver probably needs a little more of that.

Warm up with these 10 stellar Tiki cocktails
From tropical fruit to vibrant colors, these delicious Tiki drinks will knock your socks off

Tiki culture is a wealth of riches, not to mention elaborate drinks. For the out of touch, it's mere escapism, a way to feel like you're somewhere warm and cozy. But for those in the know, Tiki is an art form, a genre, an entire culture.

It all began in the South Pacific and gradually spread to famous hotel bars and, ultimately, the best recipe books. Yes, it's a vacation in a glass, and that glass might just be a pineapple, coconut husk, shared bowl, or Tiki mug, but it's also a category of some of the most interesting drinks on the planet (with a devout following, we might add).

These 9 foods will boost immunity naturally with zinc
Zinc is a crucial part of a healthy immune system. Get your fix with these foods
Meat and poultry served on a chopping board.

When most people focus on eating well, they focus on the overall diet and large macronutrients like protein, fat, and carbohydrates. However, depending on the foods you gravitate toward and how varied your diet is, it’s still quite possible to have deficiencies in certain micronutrients—the key vitamins and minerals your body needs for optimal health and function—such as zinc.

Zinc deficiencies are particularly common in vegans and vegetarians, but many people would benefit from increasing their dietary intake of this immune-supportive mineral. As an essential mineral, zinc must be consumed through the diet because the body cannot manufacture it endogenously. Moreover, zinc is a necessary component of over 300 enzymes in the body. It is heavily involved in immune support, wound healing, building DNA and biological proteins, smell, taste, and fertility. Foods high in zinc, such as oysters, are also great foods to help prevent hair loss, as zinc plays a key role in protein production and hair follicle cell differentiation.

Honey is a great way to add a little sweetness and texture to a cocktail. Here's how to mix with the stuff.

Like tasty maple syrup or demerara, honey is a great cocktail ingredient that can impart flavor and sweetness. With much more character than, say, simple syrup, honey can improve drinks across the board, from a steaming Hot Toddy to a Bee's Knees cocktail.

We like a nice dose of honey in everything from a great hot cocktail to a classic bourbon creation like an Old Fashioned. But not just any honey will do and, often, you don't just want to throw it in last minute. Instead, honey can be prepped a bit so it can enter a drink seamlessly. Moreover, you can source some delicious higher-end honey that will offer lovely floral components and easy-to-mix-with flavors. Here's how to mix cocktails with honey.
