Pay attention: every time you’re drunk, these awful things happen in your body!
We’ve all experienced a hangover the morning after drinking too much alcohol, but have you wondered what happens to your body at that moment? Well, you’re in luck because science has the answer!
Everything you drink goes through the esophagus, stomach and small intestine – they are responsible for your drunkenness.
All the alcohol that is not properly absorbed goes into the bloodstream, making you feel drunk. Your circulatory system is pretty fast, and that’s why you’re drunk too soon.
Blood alcohol level is the amount of alcohol which goes back to the blood through the lungs.
The liver tries to detoxify the alcohol in the bloodstream, but the speed of this process depends on the alcohol you’re drinking.
While it performs detoxification, the liver creates acetaldehyde, the main cause of hangovers. It’s a toxic substance similar to vinegar.
The kidneys help the liver in the detoxification process causing you to visit the bathroom frequently during drinking.
When you drink, the body is dehydrated more than usual. If you don’t drink enough water, you will surely have a splitting headache the next day.
Scientists say that the brain is responsible for the alcohol’s effect.
