H-Proof Review

Ever woke up with that dreaded hangover feeling, even if you didn’t even drink that much? 

Well, it can happen. And unfortunately, even if you’re “careful”, alcohol can still negatively affect you the next day. 

So that means even if you played it smart and toned it down from those multiple-drinks-per-night episodes in your 20s, even just one or two drinks can cause problems the next day for some people.

But what if there was a supplement you could take that could keep your brain and body happy the next day even after having some drinks?

Well, that’s what one supplement called H-Proof claims to offer. 

Keep reading this H-Proof review to see if this supplement really is the best friend you need when having a drink, or if it’s just a scam best left behind!

Things to Consider

  • H-Proof is a natural formula with vitamins, herbs, minerals, and other compounds
  • It may have benefits for people who drink regularly but don’t have many drinks on each occasion (e.g. less than three or four)
  • H-Proof isn’t best for people with chronic or severe alcohol problems, nor should it be looked at as a “quick fix”
  • It comes in convenient tablet form, so it can be used at home or wherever you go out
  • Most of the prices are around $3/serving so it’s definitely a considerable investment. But there are a variety of buying options

About H-Proof

H-Proof is advertised as “the anytime you drink vitamin”. This formula was crafted by board-certified surgeon Dr. Linda J. Kaplan, who is also H-Proof’s founder. 


There are a variety of vitamins, electrolytes, and herbs, with 16 ingredients in total. H-Proof’s unique blend is designed to enhance alcohol metabolism, boost liver function, and promote greater hydration and nutrient intake, so your body can recover more quickly after a night of drinking. 

H-Proof Benefits

H-Proof is advertised to deliver three main benefits for those who drink:

  • Enhanced Alcohol Metabolism
  • Better Liver Health
  • Increased Nutrient Intake & Hydration
H-Proof Benefits

Enhanced Alcohol Metabolism

One of the main claimed benefits of H-Proof is enhanced alcohol metabolism. Ingredients such as B-complex vitamins and taurine are designed to speed up alcohol metabolism, which may help you to get it out of your system faster and avoid its lingering effects.

Better Liver Health

One of the risks of alcohol consumption is liver damage, especially when one drinks often and in heavy amounts. But H-Proof is advertised to provide critical support for your liver, mainly with herbal stars like milk thistle, as well as a key antioxidant in glutathione. 

These may work together to prevent liver damage and repair cellular health overall. 

Increased Nutrient Intake & Hydration

Not only is alcohol dehydrating, but it also can deplete various minerals and other nutrients. It is no wonder many people don’t feel like themselves the night after drinking, even if it wasn’t that much. 

Well, H-Proof was formulated to increase nutrient intake and hydration. This product includes a variety of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, zinc, and potassium, which are designed to give your body the boost it needs while also supporting other areas such as immune health.

So, overall, H-Proof claims to be the perfect solution when you want to have a night out yet still feel ready to hit the ground running tomorrow.

But does it actually work?

Keep reading to find out!

H-Proof Ingredients

H-Proof is a blend of 16 ingredients, which is actually now a patented formula.

Below are all of the active ingredients in H-Proof:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Vitamin B6
  • Folate 
  • Vitamin B12
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Potassium
  • Proprietary Liver Support Blend:
    • Silymarin
    • Taurine
    • Dihydromyricetin
    • L-Glutathione
H-Proof Supplement Facts

Vitamin C (140mg) and Vitamin E (2.01mg)

H-Proof has a solid amount of vitamin C at 140mg, which is over 100% of the daily value, and a decent amount of vitamin E. These vitamins have antioxidant effects and help support immune health, both of which could come into play when consuming alcohol. 

In fact, people who often drink alcohol are commonly deficient in vitamins C and E, since alcohol depletes them from the body.

So supplementation may help bring levels back up. Not to mention these two vitamins may protect against alcohol-related liver damage.

B-Complex Vitamins

There are also all of the B-complex vitamins in H-Proof with the exception of biotin. It’s good to see that they use well-absorbed forms too, such as methylcobalamin and calcium-d-pantothenate. 

H-Proof generally has very high amounts of these vitamins including over 700% of the daily value for riboflavin and vitamin B12, as well as over 1,000% of the daily value for vitamin B6.

All of these B-complex vitamins are very important for metabolism, energy production, brain health, and other functions. Yet, alcohol can deplete these vitamins, especially if someone drinks regularly.

There is emerging evidence that shows supplementing with B vitamins may be beneficial for regular drinkers, mainly to increase levels to the normal range, but also to support liver function and metabolism.

Magnesium (10mg), Zinc (0.34mg), and Potassium (19mg)

H-Proof also has three key minerals, which are magnesium, zinc, and potassium.

We like that they are in chelated forms because this offers increased bioavailability as opposed to cheaper forms.

However, these minerals are dosed too low to really provide any meaningful benefits. Could they contribute somewhat to overall intake? Yes. But it’s not enough to help when drinking.

Proprietary Liver Support Blend (383.75mg)

The Proprietary Liver Support Blend contains four key ingredients:

  • Silymarin
  • Taurine
  • Dihydromyricetin
  • L-Glutathione

Silymarin is a bioactive compound found in the herb, milk thistle. It has been shown to decrease inflammation and increase antioxidant capacities in the body. Not to mention silymarin also has liver-protective effects, mainly by regenerating liver cells and preventing the build-up of toxins in the liver.

The second compound, taurine, is an amino acid with antioxidant effects. Some evidence shows that taurine can also protect the liver from alcohol-induced damage. 

Next there is dihydromyricetin (DHM), which is a natural flavonoid that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It may also improve liver metabolism, but this isn’t definitive.

Lastly, glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that also promotes cellular repair and regeneration. Levels of this compound decrease after drinking, so taking it back in through supplementation may help drinkers maintain normal levels.

Does H-Proof Work?

Overall, H-Proof has the potential to work for keeping you healthier when drinking. It’s not a bullet-proof formula, and there are several ingredients that are underdosed. Not to mention they use a proprietary blend, so we can’t see the doses for some key ingredients.

But they do have a good line-up of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other compounds that seem to protect the body from alcohol damage while also supporting liver health. 

It’s certainly not a safeguard against chronic drinking, though. Although it might give you the boost you need if you just drink occasionally and only in small to moderate amounts.

Who is H-Proof Best For?

H-Proof is best for people who drink alcohol somewhat regularly but only in mild to moderate doses (think about 1 to 3 drinks per outing).

It certainly can be used by heavier drinkers, but those individuals will need much more support to reach the advertised benefits that this product offers. 

So, it is likely best for people who:

  • Like to have a drink or two on most weeknights
  • Don’t drink during the week but have a few on the weekends
  • Are otherwise regular, mild drinkers
H-Proof Packets


  • Well-researched ingredients
  • Good doses for most vitamins
  • In a convenient chewable tablet form
  • Many ways to save through bulk and/or subscription options
  • Comes in various flavors


  • Uses a proprietary blend
  • Minerals are underdosed
  • Very pricey
  • Limited range of benefits

How Does H-Proof Compare?

H-Proof is a decent supplement, but it’s a bit high-priced.  One supplement that offers essentially the same (if not greater) benefits yet at a much lower cost is Flyby Recovery

Flyby Recovery

This supplement contains vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, minerals, and a variety of herbs and other compounds, such as milk thistle, DHM, ginseng, alpha lipoic acid, and taurine. 

As you can see, the formula for Flyby Recovery is very similar to H-Proof, but the doses are generally higher. Plus, Flyby Recover costs only $31.47 for 30 servings, which is substantially lower than any of the H-Proof options. 

Alcohol Armor

Another similar supplement to H-Proof is Alcohol Armor. This formula also has milk thistle, DHM, and B vitamins just like H-Proof. However, they only show doses for the vitamins and minerals and none of the herbs or other compounds.

Alcohol Armor comes in convenient shot form, but it’s definitely very pricey at $34.99 for 6 bottles or $64.99 for 12 bottles. So H-Proof is quite a bit more affordable than Alcohol Armor, while providing about the same potential benefits.

How to Take H-Proof

H-Proof comes in tablets. They say to take two tablets after drinking. 

Is H-Proof Safe?

H-Proof seems to be a safe supplement. There are a few possible side effects based on the ingredients, including:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive problems such as diarrhea or upset stomach
  • Skin reactions (e.g. rash, eczema)
  • Allergic reactions

H-Proof is made in the USA in a cGMP, FDA-registered facility. It is gluten-free and vegan, although they don’t have official certifications for those attributes.

There is sucralose in this formula, so it’s not suitable for people who want to avoid artificial sweeteners. 

Where to Buy H-Proof

You can buy H-Proof right from the H-Proof website at this link.

H-Proof Website

It’s available in a bottle, packets, tubes, or in bulk event packets.

Also, each product is available as a one-time purchase or subscription (which saves 20%), and they also offer bulk options.

So, overall, there are many different prices. But here are the regular one-time purchase prices to give you an idea. Next to that, we’ve put the lowest possible price if you combine their biggest bulk savings with a subscription, so you can understand the total pricing range.

  • Bottle (20 servings) – $59 ($2.95/serving). As low as $2/serving
  • Packets (20 servings) – $79 ($3.95/serving). As low as $2.68/serving
  • Tubes (15 servings) – $59 ($3.93/serving). As low as $2.68/serving
  • Bulk Event Packets (120 servings) – $379 ($3.16/serving). As low as $2.76/serving

All in all, H-Proof is definitely on the pricier side. And it seems a bit expensive given that it’s not really that stellar of a formula. Sure, it can help, but it might be hard to justify spending around 3 dollars per serving, especially if you want to use this often.

Verdict: H-Proof Review

H-Proof is a decent formula that may help you feel better the next day after you’ve had a couple drinks.

It’s nothing spectacular, and we don’t recommend it for anyone with serious alcohol issues. But if you’re someone who drinks small amounts on a pretty regular basis, H-Proof may help you feel a bit better and limit the negative effects of alcohol on the body

It’s also pretty expensive, so you have to consider whether paying around 3 dollars per serving is worth it. For many, the limited benefits might not justify this price, but at the end of the day only you can decide!
