Default No.. More... Hangovers

I am ready to punch two or three of my beer-nerd friends in the babymakers because these folks are JUST NOW mentioning to me something they've been doing for years...

Simply taking a B Complex vitamin before bed with a glass of water.

I'm tellin' you... it freakin' works. I was insanely skeptical, and everyone I've told since has been also. But, I swear, anyone who's tried it is an instant believer.

The rule is...
If you're having a couple drinks, before you go to bed you take one basic B Complex vitamin with a full glass of water. If you are having a PILE of drinks (like.. hanging out in Vegas pile of drinks), you take one B Complex before your first drink and then one before bed with a glass of water.

I said I was going to groin-punch some folks because apparently a few folks in my HBC have bene doing it for years. I actually got, "Oh yeah, I haven't had a hangover in about ten years now" the other day. I almost slapped them for not sharing this peice of info with me a long freakin' time ago.

i have tried it a number of times and haven't had a single hangover since. You might still be a bit tired if you're out all night but no hangover (sick stomach and pounding head).

B Complex is at any basic pharmacy and should run about $10 for a bottle of 100 tablets.

I do the same with plain old B12. Not sure if it works as well as B complex, but I've never had a real hangover after taking one before bed.

Guess what else is chock-full of B-Complex vitamins...yeast. That which makes the poison is also the cure, awesome.

Pour the bottle then swig the dregs. No problem.

I've heard that as well... problem is I don't bottle any beers. I keg everything. Plus, if you're out, you're not going to get dregs out of commercial beers.

I usually drink water after 2-3 beers and then when finished with the beers, more water. That works for me without vitamin B. However, I take a multi vitamin everyday so maybe that helps too.

Pedialyte. tried and true. Before camping trips with my buddies, we each picked on up at the drug store pedialyte and a gallon of water. Last hour you're awake before crashing, drink as much water as you can take and about 16 ouncs of pedialyte.

That much electrolytes gives you some weird urine colors the day before and some odd shivers but...no hangover.

That's some seriously powerful stuff. It changes your urine color the day before you drink it?!?!

Wonder how much is the B-vitamin and how much is the hydration. There's a very strong correlation with me between how much H2O I drink over the course of the night and how hung over I am the next day (ideal ratio is about 1:1, if I can drink almost as much water as I do beer, I can get significantly and not be hurting at all in the morning.

We do some big tastings at my place. We did this + 5 more between 4 of us - http://adam-jackson.net/beer/review-more-delicious-hill-farmstead-beers/.

I notice the same thing. MOst of us have the rule that if we're drinking a 25CL pour, you drink 25CL of water once the beer is empty. Even if you chug, then you're fine.

The camping analogy I gave is because, in a big group and out in the woods, I forget to drink water and just keep opening beers and then the next day is Hell.
