Having a glass of wine (or two) at the end of the night sounds like a great way to relax… until that morning headache hits, that is. The worst part is that it’s so easy to fall down the rabbit hole (one drink becomes two, two becomes three, etc.). Just turn on Netflix, open a bottle of red, add a few slices of cheese and/or chocolate, and voila! You’ve got yourself the perfect recipe for a nasty sulfite-infused hangover.
Thanks to PureWine’s Wand Purifier Filter Stick, however, there may be a way to have your wine and drink it too. This little gadget claims to remove the histamines and sulfites (a.k.a. the things that trigger hellish hangovers) from red, white, and sparkling wine without changing the natural aroma, flavor, or color of said wine. All you have to do is pop it in your glass, wait three minutes, and drink.
Among the 6,000+ reviews and 4.3-star rating, tons of customers swear by the Wand Wine Purifier Filter Stick. Use it with any wine (yes, even sparkling!) and in three minutes it reduces wine allergies and the chance of headaches. Check out what some fans had to say:
“Works better than Benadryl,” said Amazon reviewer, Beverly Banks. “They work!!! I usually can’t drink reds without my sinuses blowing up and eating Benadryl for the rest of the next two days ….. So far half a bottle with the filters on two different days and not a single sniffle. Highly recommend. I don’t how they work and truthfully don’t care….they do and now I can drink reds again!!”
Kris Naughton said that the filter is worth every penny! “Went from not being able to drink wine at all to having two full 6-ounce classes with one wand! A little bit of a stuffy nose but absolutely no headache!!! Definitely worth a try.”
Granted, these nifty wands are designed for one-time use, so you may have to buy a few boxes if you plan on indulging in a late-night, snack-filled Netflix binge-a-thon. But you do have your choice between a 3, 8, 24, 48, or 72-pack (ranging from $12-$137). The product description also claims that this wine wand can resurrect just about any bottle of already-opened wine using “Patented Phoenix Purification technology.” It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, that’s what we thought too until we read through thousands of glowing reviews like this one:
Another Amazon reviewer raved about the filter stick saying, “I don’t know if I’m just ‘drinking the Kool-Aid on this or what, but I followed the easy directions and these amazingly work exactly as they describe. It never failed — If I have a glass of wine — any wine — I would get a headache because of the sulfites. If I use one of these, no headache. It’s crazy to believe because it’s almost too good to be true and I’ve asked myself why don’t the winemakers buy this concept at the production level to make their wine a better experience. Maybe the cost? They are very expensive. Take a glass of wine that’s already expensive per oz and add more dollars to it. But for me, the no headache is totally worth it.”
We won’t blame you if you go straight for that 72-pack. Time to stock up and enjoy our wine without the morning regret.
