Exercise Myth Busters #7

Exercising Is A Good Cure For A Hangover.

While it is true that alcohol is an energy source for your body. That just sounds a bit too good to be true…and it is. The reason alcohol can be an energy source is because when there is alcohol in your system your body doesn’t like it! Alcohol is a toxin that your body wants to get rid of A.S.A.P. so it burns it as energy. But as well as a toxin alcohol is also a diuretic which causes the body to loose more water than it takes on (the reason for all the toilet stops after a few to many) this leads to your body becoming dehydrated. The dehydration is the reason for the pounding headache you get after a big night out. So next time your out remember to drink plenty of water with your non water flavoured drinks.
