Scientists have managed to synthesize the drug, get rid of the desire to drink alcohol

The substance is called naltrexone and actively used in many countries to combat drug and alcohol addiction.

Studies on mice found out that naltrexone is able to "turn off" the need for a new dose of alcohol-containing substances by exposure to the elements of the immune system.

Experts say that penetrating the brain, the drug forms a connection with the immune receptor TLR4, which has direct relevance to the formation of craving for alcohol and blocks it.

According to scientists, the need for psychoactive substances is closely linked to circadian rhythms, and the most significant increase is noted in the evening, as that is the time the brain responds to the reception of surfactant selection for the increased number of endorphins.
