Take The Red Pill: Russian Pill Enhances And Prolongs Drunkenness

Russian scientists have developed a product that can keep a person drunk, Britain’s Daily Telegraph wrote.

The tablet called RU-21 Red was developed in Spirit Sciences, a laboratory based in California but with research facilities in Russia. The same scientists had earlier worked on secret programs for the Kremlin and had made the famous RU-21 product that cures hangovers.

If you take a tablet you need less alcohol to stay drunk, the scientists were quoted by the paper as saying. “RU-21 Red prolongs drunkenness and enhances intoxication,” the company co-founder, Emil Chiabery, born in the ex-Soviet republic of Georgia said.

RU-21, the company’s original product, is sold as a natural dietary supplement in the United States and Britain, the paper wrote. It officially claims to help prevent long-term diseases associated with moderate alcohol intake. But among its ingredients are acids that are natural anti-oxidants and reportedly rid the body of some of the harmful by-products of alcohol breakdown that lead to hangovers.

The Red contains grapevine extracts intended to slow down the oxidation of alcohol and keep the user drunk. “I’m not sure I’m going to market it in the U.S.A. I don’t want it to become a party drug. We are for responsible drinking,” Chiabery said.
