Is Everything You've Ever Heard About Hangover Cures Wrong? February 13 2015, 0 Comments
According to an article recently published on Wired.com entitled Everything Science Knows About Hangovers - And How to Cure Them, "Over the past five years, researchers have revealed that pretty much everything anyone has ever told you about the causes of hangover is wrong."
Do you believe this statement could possibly be true? Everything you've ever learned about a hangover is incorrect? The Wired.com article has quite a bit to say about drinking alcohol, best hangover cures, and how to cure a hangover. Here are some of the points stated in the article:
- Seventy-seven percent of drinkers report suffering from hangovers
- Nobody really knows what causes a hangover
- Hangovers cost $160 billion in the United States in lost revenue each year
- Most scientific studies on alcohol focus on alcohol-related issues, but not hangovers
The article discusses the fact that in 2009 several researchers that specialize in studying alcohol consumption and hangovers got together and decided to refer to themselves as the Alcohol Hangover Research Group (AHRG). And since 2009, the group has distributed research that says that most of the facts that people think are true about alcohol consumption and hangovers are either unproven or wrong.
For example, the AHRG says that dehydration, which is a result of alcohol consumption, does not necessary correlate with hangover severity. Also, the idea that drinking alcohol results in low blood sugar, but high blood sugar levels might actually be the one of the causes of a hangover.
The AHRG says the following:
- Most people who consume enough alcohol to drive their blood alcohol level to higher than 0.10 can pretty much guarantee a hangover the next morning
- Hangover symptoms are at their worst approximately 12-14 hours after the blood alcohol level reaches 0.10 or above
- It may be that red wine and/or whiskey create a more severe hangover than white wine and vodka
- Hangovers may actually be cause by the body's inflammatory response to alcohol
The Wired.com article goes on to discuss several possible and potential hangover cures. But, so far, the research of the AHRG has not resulted in the creation of a hangover cure that works every time. Luckily, until that day arrives, there's MagiPatch.
MagiPatch is a hangover remedy patch that was created after years of scientific research by Nutrillion Science, Inc. The patch looks similar to a clear sticker that is applied to the skin in an inconspicuous place. When it's applied 30 minutes before the consumption of alcohol begins, it transmits natural ingredients - including vitamins, nutrients, and anti-oxidants via Transdermal Drug Delivery Technology. When MagiPatch is used according to instructions, it serves as a helpful hangover cure that relieves hangover symptoms such as nausea, headache, thirst, sensitivity to light and noise, and more.
