I’ve just returned from my yearly holiday up in Queensland.  Apart from taking part in a whole bunch of fun and frivolity I did however take the opportunity to do further research into the “Hangover”. 

You wouldn’t say that my research was exactly stringent in all manner of procedure.  A “Doctor” of something could look at my results-that’s of course if I kept any and possibly tear it to bits with a bit scientific double talk, however this is what happened and what I observed in myself. 

Let me set the scene.  About every 4 years the British come out to Australia and try to beat us at cricket (Us being Australia).  Both sides play for an urn filled with the ashes of a bail (a bit of wood that sits on a stump). When these two teams clash there is tremendous rivalry amongst the players and spectators alike.  The British onlookers yell out “Barmy Army, Barmy Army….”ad nauseam. And we say things like “Aussie, Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi, or “Ooh Ah  Glen McGRath”  or “Warnieeee”.  Any way it’s something you have to experience to appreciate the atmosphere.  It is both intense and electrifying. 

We pre booked our tickets months in advance for the Friday and Sunday sessions.  Smithy informed me that we would be sitting in “Sunburn Alley” for both days.  Initially I was a bit disappointed at the prospect of getting one or two melanomas and possibly sun stroke at the least.  But then I thought well I’ll take this opportunity to do some research on the “Hangover” in relation to dehydration.  (By the way copious amounts of  beer on it’s own doesn’t hydrate, despite the opinions of some. More on that later). 

You will find a great information source at How Much Water Drink in relation to water and dehydration.

Anyway. my research consisted of drinking nothing but beer from Friday 9.00am till 11.59pm Friday night.  And then see how I felt when I eventually woke on Saturday sometime.  Then on Sunday I would drink the same amount of beer and in between drink water with my X20 additive. And then compare how I felt body wise with Saturday and Monday.  The only flaw in my research was that after about the 10th beer I’d forgotten how many I’d had, so I might have drank more on either day. 

Before the results let me give you a bit of a run down on the subject of Hydration/Dehydration.  

Have you ever been told that drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day is essential.  Well it’s true, you are what you drink.  Water actually is the key to all body functions- heart, circulation, digestion, bones and joints, muscles, metabolism, assimilation, elimination, SEX, glands, nerves, energy…… Water is essential for health and healing. 

Your body should be approx. 70% water.  Many health researchers and medical experts now believe that water-not just fluid-is essential to our health and well-being and is one of the keys to slowing down the aging process and helping us lose excess body fat.  Next to oxygen, water is unquestionably the most important  nutrient for sustaining life. 8 glasses of alcohol don’t count towards your 8 glasses and actually dehydrate you. 

Signs of dehydration- Your body loses approx 2.5 litres of water everyday just through normal bodily functions.  If you are physically active or athletic, you lose even more water.  You lose water through urination, respiration and perspiration.  Although “thirst” is an obvious sign of dehydration, the truth of the matter is that your body is in need of water long before you feel thirsty. 

Many so called signs of aging are also signs and symptoms of chronic dehydration including: heartburn, dyspepsia (acid indigestion), rheumatoid joint pain, back pain, migraine headaches, hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), dry skin, constipation… 

Even if you drink enough water you are probably still dehydrated.  Simply water has a high surface tension.  This means it has difficulty penetrating the cell walls to fully hydrate your body.  As the cells in your body have a low surface tension water needs a similar surface tension to fully penetrate the cells efficiently.  When X20 is added to your water it transforms the surface tension similar to that of water enabling it maximally hydrate your body. 

So any way back to the acid test. 

Needless to say that on Saturday I felt 100% hung over and massively dehydrated.  I had a headache that would kill a bull. And I was red as a lobster  No surprise in that is there.  

 Now  Sunday produced  totally different results on Monday.  I actually had no headache and I was hang over-less. I was assisted by these great results by following the “Huge Hangover Crews” “Huge Hangover Cure.” 

So, visit Hangover Remedies and take the test.

PS.  We beat the “Poms” in the 1st  test I attended in Brisbane and we are well on the way to winning back the ashes.
