In this regard, an object of the present invention is to achieve solutions which provide a reduction in the physiological stress in connection with the consumption of alcohol in particular for people with a predisposition towards rapid alcohol degradation. According to the present invention this object is attained by a food composition or dietary supplementation including the following substances: niacin, dextrose, Vitamin C, L-glutamine cysteine, riboflavin, succinic acid, fumaric acid, and coenzyme Q 10, all substances in physiologically relevant doses in particular as disclosed.
