People who want to get drunk without suffering from the ill effects of hangovers can now use chewing that also boosts men’s sex drives.

WUG Functional Gum of Spain, is marketing a wide range of chewing gums that help alleviate the effects after a night of heavy drinking.

Jose Luis Rojano and Jordi Claramonte, the owners of the gum company, said that this is the first company that has developed a range of functional chewing gum worldwide.

The gum contains beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin D3, and is sweetened with a sugar substitute. The company advises consumers to use WUG After Party before and after a drinking session.

The gum can also help people achieve a flat belly by tricking the body into thinking it is not hungry.

The gum was created based on the findings that the human body can absorb vitamins and stimulants faster through chewing rather than through the digestive system.

The effects are noted after 5 minutes compared to the 40 minutes required for any other standard product to work, such as drinks, gels, injections, tablets or bars.

The company recommends that consumers use gum five minutes before sex to make it more pleasant and lasting.
