Putting ‘No Headache’ Wine Filters To The Test

October 30, 2019


MAYBE YOU HAD SOME TONIGHT WHILE WATCHING THE GRAMMY’S, SO WINE WITHOUT THE HEADACHE? KATE MERRILL SHOWS NEW PRODUCTS DESIGNED TO HELP YOU AVOID THE PAIN. IF I DRINK TOO MUCH I DON’T FEEL WELL THE NEXT DAY. REPORTER: REBECCA LIKES ENJOYING A GLASS OF WINE OR TWO, BUT WITH TWO YOUNG KIDS HANGOVERS ARE NOT OKAY. AS I GET OLDER THEY GET WORSE AND WORSE. REPORTER: SO WE ASKED HER TO TRY NEW PRODUCTS PROMISING TO FILTER OUT THE SULFATES IN THE WINE. USERS SWIRL THE FILTER IN THE GLASS AND WAIT THREE MINUTES. THEY SAY THE PROCESS PURIFIES THE WINE, SIMPLY POUR THE WINE THROUGH THE FILTER AND ENJOY, AND REBECCA SAW A DIFFERENCE. NO HEADACHE OR HANGOVER THE NEXT DAY. LIKE I HAD ONE OR TWO GLASSES WHICH WAS WONDERFUL. REPORTER: THE SULFATES ARE NATURALLY OCCURRING IN WINE, AND ALSO ADDED AS A PRESERVATIVE IN THE BOTTLING PROCESS. THERE’S GOOD EVIDENCE THEY TRIGGER MIGRAINES. REPORTER: MASS GENERAL NEUROLOGISTS SAY IT’S LIKELY NOT THE MAIN CULPRIT BEHIND THE HANGOVERS THOUGH. PROBABLY THE BIGGEST TRIGGER FOR HEADACHES IN THE WINE IS THE ALCOHOL ITSELF. REPORTER: REBECCA IS NOT READY TO SKIP THE ALCOHOL ALL TOGETHER AND PLANS TO USE THE FILTERS WITH HER NEXT BOTTLE OF WINE.
