Increasing water intake does not always solve the answer to rehydration. Though dehydrated, the body may not be able to utilize more water. Glenn Braddy, an Australian architect, and nutrition researcher, has devoted much time to alchemical solution to human biological puzzles, such as dehydration. Mr. Braddy, and IFA (International Foundation of Alchemists) have discovered the "Sleeper Phenomenon." In simple terms, a 'sleeper' is a vital component of body chemistry, which has gone into a state of suspended activity…a "hibernation". In other words, the component is indeed present in the body, but not functionally active.

According to Braddy, the sleeper can be an amino acid, vitamin, or mineral. As long as the sleeper remains inactive, it will promote symptoms in the patient. If a patient had a magnesium sleeper, the mineral would be present in the body, but inactive or dormant. The symptomatic result would be that of a magnesium deficiency. The normal approach to a miner deficiency is to supply that mineral through a dietary supplement. However, if magnesium is the sleeper---adding magnesium will not solve the problem. The obvious answer is to activate the sleeper. The cause according to Braddy, is almost invariably dehydration. It is crucial to point out that in may cases, increasing water intake does not equal uptake or utilization. May people often identify symptoms of dehydration and increase their water intake…but fail to rehydrate. This could possibly explain why some individuals take certain nutrients and show little benefit.

The best approach to solving this problem appears to be rehydration, and finding an efficient way of getting water into the body. The key to achieving this is to provide a transporter that will facilitate the uptake of water into the body.

Symptoms of insufficient uptake of water include, remaining thristy after drinking…disliking the taste of water, or bloating after drinking water. There are many transporters that can be used. Sub-acid fruit juices appear to have the best hydrating effect.

One such transporter that may come as a surprise is caffeine. Caffeine is an effective transporter, especially for women. Another transporter is Dandelion, which is particularly important for men. Braddy states, "What is important to identify here is that many people who crave sugar, coffee, and other caffeine sources, such as Coca-Cola, and chocolate are actually using those foods and beverages to promote rehydration-and address sleeper problems in the process---although temporarily". In other words, the body is aware of the sleeper, and actually promotes the craving, or drive to particular elements, which can activate the sleeper.

An important point to remember, is that cravings are not the cause of the problem, but the result of the problem. Unfortunately, the intake of these foods can only temporarily alleviate the sleeper problem. The fact that the person craves other beverages, and certain foods---and not water is a strong indicator of the inability to absorb water.

The notion of increasing caffeine intake through coffee, and tea to enhance uptake of water is not viable option according to Mr. Braddy. A simple alternative is to add Synergy's "Hydrate-1" formula to your choice of sub-acid fruit juice and water.
