A glass (or two-plus) of wine is all fun and games until the next morning. Weak stomach? A horrendous headache? Feel exhausted even though you’ve slept all day? It’s called a hangover and, man, it’s the worst. It’s okay, we’ve all been there before.

Truth is, hangovers are not created equal. Some studies suggest red wine is more likely to cause severe hangovers — sorry, merlot lovers! There’s a possible reason why your wine hangovers feel so much worse than a night spent drinking beer or fruity cocktails: Bottles of red, white and rosé are usually filled with histamines and sulfite preservatives, which can give you a nasty headache.

There are a lot of ways to prevent a wine hangover — or any hangover, for that matter. Drinking a lot of water and keeping boozy beverages to a minimum are two obvious ways. But if you want to enjoy a glass of cabernet or chardonnay without any of the harsh repercussions, you might want pick up PureWine’s wand.

According to PureWine, up to 70 percent of wine drinkers experience side effects — like joint pain, rashes, stomach aches, and, of course, headaches — because they have wine allergies. So, the company created a weird, little wand to help alleviate those reactions.

Simply stick one of these disposable wands in your fresh glass of vino and swirl it around for a few minutes. The tip of each wand features PureWine’s patented filtration system that removes allergy-inducing histamines and sulfites preservatives — without changing the taste, color or aroma. The result? A delicious glass of wine, minus the headache afterward.

Think this wand is too good to be true? Many people claim it lives up to its promises. Not only does it have a 4.1/5 rating on Amazon, it received an A from Fakespot, a website that checks the validity of a product’s Amazon rating.

That being said, there are a few things to keep in mind. While these wands have positive reviews from most customers, what works for others may not work for you. And, of course, these wands don’t give you free reign to have as much wine as your stomach can handle. Anyone who is drinking wine must be of legal age — and should be doing so responsibly.

But if you love a good glass of wine — just not the headache that follows — why not give it a try?
