Fascinating!  Just googled it and it’s on wikipedia too!  I’m not asian, but I do turn red easily (when I drink, cry, or get stressed – all of which are bound to happen on the big day!)…  Definitely worth trying!

OMG i had NO idea! I’m scared to even touch a GLASS of wine without turning red! I know it’s because we’re missing that stupid enzyme that metabolizes alcohol, but I REALLY want to be able to have a drink without looking hammered. I know this was posted 9 months ago but BOY am I EXCITED!

Hmm…would this work for turning red, but not due to alcohol? Like when I have to speak in public or walk down the aisle? Because OMG, I know it’s gonna happen. Everything makes me turn red. Thinking about turning red makes me turn red. UGH too good to be true, I’m sure. I’d give anything to stop turning red!!!!!! Yell

Oh my goodness, I’ve never heard of this trick before! I’m definitely trying it. I always turn bright red after just a sip. And after having one glass of wine, my entire body gets red splocthes everywhere. Completely gross, but super excited about this!

It totally works!  My Fiance is half asian and is definitely missing the enzyme, haha.  He will definitely be popping some Pepcid on our wedding day!  🙂

LOL, omigod, that’s great…I didn’t know there was a solution. I start turning red with the first sip, and depending on how much, (usually just takes 2), I get red all the way down to my stomach, and red splotches on my chest, and of course my dress is strapless! This is great, thanks for posting!
