For the hungover dad
If dad’s feeling a little “dusty” after enjoying a few too many bevvy’s this Father’s Day, Zabino is a brand new hangover supplement that promises to help alleviate the adverse effects that even just a couple of drinks can inflict on the body. Zabino is made from a scientifically formulated combination of premium, naturally-derived ingredients, including B vitamins, antioxidants, electrolytes, an amino acid and a herb – all of which have all been shown in scientific and clinical studies to play a role in the physiological and chemical processes that occur within the body during and after alcohol consumption, supporting liver function and helping to reduce the unpleasant side-effects of a “hangover”. It contains no animal-derived ingredients, no added lactose, gluten or artificial flavours. Zabino is available in packs of 10 (RRP $14.95) or 30 (RRP $33.95) from selected pharmacies, health stores and online through www.zabino.com.au.
