Short-Term VS. Long-Term Effects Of Drinking Alcohol

Effects Of Drinking Alcohol

Alcohol has become an important part of Western culture and around the world. We drink at social events, to celebrate, or even just to wind down after a long and busy day.

Drinking in excess can start to cause health problems over time, beyond the initial hangover headache and dizziness.

The good news is IVITA Life Sciences offers a hangover prevention pill you take before you start drinking to prevent any ill effects the next morning. Though this is a quick-fix for the next morning, it’s important to know the short-term and long-term effects drinking can have on the body. 

Short-Term Effects of Drinking Alcohol

If you’ve ever had a drink or two, you know you can start to feel the effects of alcohol pretty quickly. How much you’ve had to drink; how quickly you’ve been drinking; your weight, sex, and body fat percentage; and whether or not you’ve eaten will play a role in how quickly you’ll start to feel intoxicated.

Initially, a person will start to feel relaxed, happier, and let their guard down. As someone keeps drinking though, or the amount of alcohol they’ve consumed starts to take effect, they will start to show other symptoms like:

  • Slurred and mixed up speech
  • Clumsiness and walking unsteadily
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness and vomiting
  • A headache
  • Distortion of senses and perception
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Memory loss

If that isn’t enough, the next morning could have you feeling just as bad, if not worse, than the night before with symptoms like:

  • A headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Racing heart
  • Dry mouth and dry eyes
  • A difficult time concentrating
  • Restlessness

Many of these symptoms are caused by dehydration because alcohol flushes all the water, electrolytes, and vitamins out of your body.

IVITA Life Sciences offers a way to party smart with hangover pills with a natural supplement you take before going out and having a few drinks.

Long-Term Effects of Drinking Alcohol

Long-term oxidative damage to the body includes:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Cirrhosis

  • Risk of stroke, heart attack, heart disease, and heart failure
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Premature delivery, miscarriage, or stillbirth if drinking while pregnant
  • Higher risk of bone fracture
  • Muscles that are weak, cramped, and atrophied
